    Springfield mo meet, greet, eat!

    Well, its around that time again where us Springfieldians (and the surrounding communities) need to meet up and hang out and fellowship.

    I picked out the last place, so I will let someone else do it this time, but I am certainly in the mood for some sushi (hint).

    I don't know any of the sushi places that will be OC friendly. CCW friendly won't be a problem for most of them, but I'd be willing to bet we might be asked to leave or have the local yokels called for OC'ing. And we know how that went recently for one person from Spfld.

    Here's some good ones I've been to:
    O'Hana
    Umi
    Hinode
    Nakato

    I have actually OC'ed in almost all of those (since if I am not sleeping or at work or church, I am OCing). Never get a second look.

    i going to take a look into that. but i know ppl who have open carried there without a issue. but i will try to figure out their policies. that and i need to see how much food they serve. since i know CCW your not allowed to carry anywhere that makes half of their profit off alcholol. so i going to also look into that.

    yah i called and a manager did say that they dont allow guns. but then i talked to others and they tell me they had no issues. one person even said they been there atleast 50 times( all OC carrying) and never once got in trouble, that most of the managers and workers know him and his family since he a frequent customer.

    i figured we should just keep it ,and if they say where not allowed. there several resteraunts right near by, couple close enough you could walk to.

    if you guys just want to change. tell me and a place that you want to change too that you know for sure will allow.

    I think that if you called just about anywhere and asked if you could carry a firearm into the establishment you would receive the same answer.

    Dowt!!

    Never make that phone call, it just encourages managers to make decisions that the owner should be making and we certainly don't want to put the idea in their heads. Best thing is to pull a manager aside while in CCW mode and ask a few questions on how to get hold of the owner, then ask about pro-2A and bringing business to them. We learned this hard lesson with the Battlefield Mall management...and they still cannot get their signage right, so we've abandoned the effort to change their minds and do not suggest that others make the effort to put the idea in another establishment's mind.

    It's part of why the posting requirements are in the law. It's also why one should carry the no guns = no $ cards to hand to their managers and owners with the notification that they'll be placed on a nation wide boycott list.

    It's even easier to get positive results if you know a pro-2A worker or manager at an establishment. That's an excellent foot in the door.

    Don't forget, Grant's across from Lambert's is owned by a pro-2A individual. He would likely prefer we CCW if we have the permits to do so. I've never asked, so I cannot verify.

    Bummed, but I am not going to be able to meet tonight. My kids school is having a special thing to kick off the new school year that I just found out about. Would love to see everyone, but gotta take care of the fam first.

    Look forward to seeing lots of new faces on the 4th at the IDPA shoot.
