    Update: No problem with the manager of this event, I'll be there to bring awareness and answer questions about OC, all three days. Found out another OC'er will be there as well, so we'll have it covered.

    All 3 days of the event will have an "It's the law segment". The segments all 3 days will be a presentation on open carry. A big thank you goes out to Bass Pro for contacting me to set this up. Also a table will be setup up during the entire event to hand out literature and educate on open carry.

    Thanks to DanM for volunteering to cover Saturday. I know another has volunteered as well I have no name but thank you to whoever you are. I have Friday and Sunday covered. Thank you to Jeff and MOC for stepping up quickly and providing man power and literature for this event. Anyone else who is interested in coming out to Bass Pro is welcome. There will be lots of people looking for guidance on OC.

    The OC seminar times

    Friday 7pm
    Saturday 2pm
    Sunday 2pm

    The event itself is

    Friday 6-9pm
    Saturday 1-5pm
    Sunday 1-5pm

    Good to hear this guys, this is what I was hoping would happen and more. Nice job guys. I have a deck to paint this weekend, but Ill be showing up to at least a couple of these things.



    One thing I have noticed by talking to people at Bass Pro, is that of the instructors who acknowledge OC at all, most keepdiscouraging the students, by saying things like they will be asking for trouble, that they would find a reason to bust you, yada yada yada, you know the drill. Im so glad we are going to be there to combat this false attitude against OC.

    Thanks again DanM, I noticed that you were going to be there all 3 days after posting.

    According to Bass Pro they are receiving huge feedback on this. They are planning for hundred of people for each seminar. Hopefully this will hold true.
