    First Time to OC.

    I am looking for someone around the St. johns area to OC with sometime. I have had my CCW for about two years now but have not OCed as of yet. I just don't have anyone to OC with in my area as none of my friends in the area have guns to carry. Just looking to go to the local Walmart and maybe lunch and learn some more about OC so I have all the info I can get. I can be reached at Bigdude0567@yahoo.com about a time and place to meet. Please let me know.

    What's that...a titt with dew on it? never been there before.

    Don't you just hate it when you wake up before your keyboard does...

    Hey Brian; he's about half way, what's say he picks a nice restaurant and we meet him for coffee there. Have a mini seminar...

    Yep, wasn't awake and didn't spell check, that's why I count on you.

    Well I do like a little moisture on my titts.

    The lunch is fine with me.

    Thanks guys! I might have some other people coming as well. Including my Mother, as she has her CCW as well. And possibly a couple of friends. I'm currently trying to see when everyone will be available and when. I'll let someone know before too long on where and when.

    Venator and I often hang out. I'll join in.

    ETA: It's a CPL, not CCW. There's a HUGE difference.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    I will be up in St. Johns next weekend for an AR shoot at the local gun club. If something is arranged for SAT and it doesn't fall during the shoot myself and a friend from the area likely would show up.

    Yeah Sunday IS pretty much out... let me find out what time the AR shoot is over ... as Sat evening may work.

    Also no for this type of meet we don't usually notify the business.

    I think we have an OC seminar to do after the show. So it would be after 6:00 pm.

    Closer to 6:30 or so. But warchild may not be able to make it. Depends on his wife's health.

    So about 6:30 seems to be the concensus. Does anyone have a preferred place to eat? I was thinking maybe Big Boys, Applebees or The WheeL Inn as they all have larger dining rooms. Anyplace is good really. Let me know so I can tell the people I'm bringing.

    My preference for what its worth is I would rather stay closer to St Johns or south (shorter drive, will be coming from Flint.). Also if some doesn't have a CPL they can't Carry at any place that sells booze, unless they get permission from the manager/owner.

    But I'm open to any place.
