    I will try to make it! The calendar is filling up with open carry events!
    The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the People of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -- Samuel Adams

    Today, we need a nation of Minutemen. Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.

    Also, anybody local that can help us (brokensprocket and myself), please PM us or post here. We could use some help.

    When handing out fliers, put them everywhere! Gas stations, bowling alleys, any place with a bulletin board. Remember that "gun friendly" people don't only visit local gun stores! You are a "gun friendly" person, try to put up fliers at every business you visit that will allow you to post a flier.

    THANKS!! See you there!!

    We will have fliers available for everybody at the La Crosse event this weekend.

    We'll even try to get a blurb about it in the local paper here.

    I'll probably be coming up there with Hubert and the guys. I don't have a holster yet for my new handgun, but should have it this week (I thought Monday, but haven't seen it yet...). Otherwise if I don't get it, I may take the opportunity on such a nice day and go shooting at the range.

    Two things logan:

    1. No firearm is needed to attend.
    2. I carry the .45 now, I can lend you the G-17 Glock.

    Hope to see you Sunday...

    Changed my mind pretty quick. I'll be going for sure with Hubert. Looks like I'll be meeting a lot of new people this weekend. Just forgive me if you introduce yourself and minutes later I forget your name :P

    Well, the picnic was mentioned in a news segment, that is good, but they got the 'who' wrong. It's coverage, so I cannot complain.
