    Had a great day at Leesburg Executive Airport Airshow today (10/23/2010)

    Had great weather and we put on a great airshow. I worked from 0600 to 1700 and OC'ed from about 1000 (when it got warm enough to take off my sweatshirt).. About 20 police, Mayor, Supervisors, Council members, press, FAA, and area VIP's were there. NO isses and only positive comments.
    Carry On.

    I though I remembered you saying carry at this airport was OK but was not sure so I did not carry.

    I went and OCed. Nobody said anything. The only thing was when I was checking out the hot Porsche GT3 the hot daughter of the owner of the car questioned her father about my gun. I heard him say that in Virginia you can carry concealed or openly and that you dont need a permit to carry openly.

    Dang it, looks like I missed a fun time. Too bad I was still in TX that day, otherwise I would've been there.

    Ed, do you by chance know when the airshow will be next year?

    Ed - as long as you were in the golf cart it was almost imposssible to see the sidearm. It was a good show. I always love the aircraft/auto combined events.

    My feet and I can assure you the golf cart was very little of the time. Even when I went over to the VIP party.. with the town manager and Mayor, etc. I was on my feet. :-)

    When did Lynchburg change? And why? I have carried there many times in the past. Haven't recently. I have noticed they have an electronic lock on the door now. They wont even let me out to get baggage or tie down when my parents come to visit.

    Carry at VA airports was determined by a letter from the AG in 2004:
