    I'm in the springs and travel to Avondale about once a week. I open carry all of the time and nothing is said, even in the Pueblo Home Depot where I get my materials.

    Anyone willing to gather for:

    A dinner

    A community project (with the aim of promoting OC)

    A free state type project?

    What if we picked a brunch or lunch and possibly February 5 to start?

    That would give us a few weeks to ask a few locations that may be willing.

    It is winter and some of the ideas the New Hampshire guys use (open carry trash pick-up) and other public gatherings could be considered for the spring and summer.

    Can’t let the NH guys have all the fun...

    If I'm not knee-deep in a project, I'm game.

    Hi, shotcop - if you're still in the game, can you do myself and the rest of us a favor by simply saying, "I'm on board" while not qualifying how-so?

    Having worked with LE from Fed to Ft. Dirt, I'll be happy to entertain your points of view.

    If not, then aloha. You know what that means.

    I am an advocate of OC and most other opinions as they start out, just seems to devolve quickly. Don't want to argue with anyone. As my last post on this thread shows, I still look forward to OC get togethers and will ref this site for info, just not participate in threads. I'm not even saying that some of the concerns aren't justified, just way overboard for me.

    I am working on a carry friendly restaurant, I would like to find out just what the attitude is locally for a meet up...

    I wish this stuff was easy...

    I started this because I am just impressed with some positive activism, as for LEOs I am not concerned, everything is legal and above board...

    Looks positive so far! As for the restaurant, just carry. If they don't throw you out, it's a go.

    It is easy. Adopt Nike's phrase: "Just do it."

    Yep! And I'm glad you started something positive!

    Any of you guys have a particular preference to Pueblo West, Canon, or Even Springs?

    I am willing to drive to Springs, Pueblo, PW, Canon, Penrose (not much there, I know), Florence.

    We could always show our appreciation for Starbucks corporate policy with a brunch...

    It is on the same street as Walmart is only the other side of Hwy 50. I don't know if that is Elizabeth or not.

    Hey guys, I just got back from the not-so-lovely Atlantic seaboard from several solid weeks of business back to back.

    How about keeping it local?

    Pass Key Restaurant (50 West) restaurant is local and has a good reputation so how about this:

    1 PM Feb 5

    Pass Key

    Pass Key 50 West Restaurant
    1901 W Us Highway 50
    Pueblo, CO 81008

    The 50 version is easy to find just off of 25 on 50 with bigger parking lot.
