    I'll be there along with 4 or 5 other family members. I'll bring some food or drink too! I take it the city is 'ok' with lots of people OC'ing in the park? That's cool to have such an understanding local authority too.

    The 'local authority' allowing people to do things that are lawful should just be status quo.

    Anyone that is bringing food, please send an email to

    food@ccdl.us

    And tell us what you are bringing.
    As for local authorities understanding, what is there to understand. OC is legal and we did reserve the spot as well as pay the town for its use.

    I only OC when I do carry. That's not an issue for me. So far, no problems. And yes, I do carry the CCDL docs along with the other supporting docs. What I was curious about is if there are any local 'laws' that may pose a problem. I know there are some cities in CT(Hartford comes to mind) that DO NOT allow handguns in there parks. Either way, i'm there. Lets hope for some good weather.

    No. We looked into all applicable laws and regulations before we selected this location last year. There are no laws prohibiting the carrying of firearms in Booth Memorial Park.

    Looks like the earliest I can get there will be 3:00......

    Debating if it will be worth it at that point.

    Forgot I had a reservation at the range with my son on Saturday.
