    So, I need to pick up someone from the airport, and it turns out I have to be there at 9:30 at night. I'd already made plans to run around with some friends tonight, but now I have all day in Richmond.

    Anyone want to OC lunch or dinner tomorrow?

    Anyone have any suggestions even if you don't want to join?
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Bass Pro in Ashland is doing theirGunPrimer weekend with prizes and free seminars.

    There's a thread at the top of this forum about it. The restaurant at Bass Prois awesome too.

    Whatever you do, Abno, if Grapeshot signs on and wants to come to lunch, make darn sure you get separate checks. Otherwise he'll talk you into covering the whole tab. He's very smooth at this. Darn near had me paying for a 50-person picnic last year!

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Are you going to be in town too.

    We can do the separate check thing with no problem, but I'm still sure I'll have to leave early.

    We'll be having our regularly scheduled OC breakfast Sat. I presume - look for a new thread by tomorrow morning.

    I'm trying to remember the place I went to recently that had a "no check splitting" policy to recommend.

    I doubt I'll be able to make it, maybe for a later dinner but still not sure.

    Well, we met up for dinner at Islamagordo at BPS, then went upstairs to listen to the seminars. Got to listen to an auld phart who "teaches hunter safety" spout everything bass-akwards about carrying concealed while hunting, who then was gently handed his hindquarters by the nice BPS gun counter employee who set the record straight.

    I went off in search of some goodies while the group went to the gun counter to see and hear more about choosing your first firearm, and did not wander back in time to win a S&W ballcap - they pulled my number but as I was not present to win they pulled another number.

    I'll have to go back soon to return something that does not fit. It was one of those "this might work" purchases for something I was not carrying. (What? You want me to lug everything in the safe so I can test-fit it on the spot?)

    Maybe next time all you folks who claim to still have jobs can get off earlier.

    stay safe.

    I think that came from me misunderstanding him over the phone. Too many gunshots in the neighborhood.
