    Starbucks Spanaway

    As this thread has gotten so long it has become tough too navigate, http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...s-in-STARBUCKS!

    and so many people have showed interest in meeting up there Saturday, I figured I would start this up to make it easier to discuss meeting there this weekend.

    Sounds like 10:00 AM is the preferred time Saturday.

    Correct me, please if this is not the right location, and I will edit to fix it:

    15803 Pacific Ave S

    See y'all there.

    After reading what happened (at least the first several pages) and listening to the audio, I think a meetup there would be great. I am sure my hubby Genken will be there (he may not know that just yet!). Hope everything goes great!

    Someone please tell me, is that this Saturday, October 2nd? I know we normally get together on the second Saturday. Could someone also give me the address of the Starbucks we are meeting at? I will do a Google Maps and find it. Thanks!

    Thank you! I live in Texas and this will be Genken's last chance for a meetup before we start the move to a new base. Was really hoping there was one going on for his last weekend up there!

    This Saturday, 10:00AM.

    Not a substitute for the second Saturday, just an impromptu in support of Tom and the awesome job he did in dealing with his run in with the Pierce County Sheriff's deputies.

    Correct, this meet is this Saturday the 2nd. It is not the normal 2nd Saturday Meet (as it is the 1st Saturday).

    Devil will 100% be there, especially since it is not only a show of support but also a "haha Genken your wife made you come again, and even on your last weekend up here!"

    I will try and swing by and grab paddy too...

    Hello everyone, Frequent lurker, first time poster here! I'm kind of bypassing the normal introductions, hopefully that's not too much of a violation of normal forum decorum.

    This issue, as well as the the audio of what happened to the OP has made my blood boil as it has for others. I'm a proponent of OC and 2A. I'm going to try and make it the the event as well, while open carrying. The one question I have is, if there are no members of the sheriffs office there, is there a point to this gathering? We already know that Starbuck's is ok with OC, and it seems that without a police presence(sp), it might as well be a meeting in someones back yard. Kind of the old saying "if a tree falls in the woods and no ones around to hear it, does it make a sound?" If no police are there to witness the gathering, is it just a boost to Starbucks profits?

    Here is the thing...there is LEO's that frequently chekc these boards and are even some members on here. Whether or not the SO comes out or not it will get it through their head that we will not tolerate this kind of behavior.

    Also this is more of a "Yeah good job Tom we are all behind you." type deal then a "ha ha we will get you (evil) coppers." type of thing.....

    oh yeah and Welcome to the forums!

    I take it as a show of support for the OP. Shows that we won't be run off or intimidated by the LE in that area for participating in a perfectly legal activity. Doesn't matter whether they show up or not, they will get word of it.
