    Hello everyone!

    Yes, I am new to the forums... but that is only when it comes to posting. I have been lurking here for about a year now and implemented OC as part of my daily life.

    I used to live in WI, so I was "forced" to OC (no CC yet for WI folks). Now I have moved to VA (3 weeks ago) and am working on getting my CC permit, but still regularly OC.

    Now for the reason for "coming out of hiding." I would love to attend the open carry dinner and meet some people from this area but my wife will have our car that night.

    I was curious if someone would be willing to take a detour and pick me up. I live 6 miles south of the Buffalo Wing factory right by the Dulles Airport.

    I could take a cab or something but I figured I would ask here first.

    Robbery: Two unknown subjects attacked victim with a baseball bat. One subject then produced a handgun and robbed victim. Money was taken. Victim had no injuries.


    If it was an hour earlier, the outcome would have been very different.

    Ok.. I just found out the scoop..

    I am "guessing" the last one of "us" left BWF around 9:45PM. 100 feet from the front door of BWF is Papa Johns Pizza. A delivery driver walked out of Papa Johns and saw two men in the parking lot with masks on coming toward him. He turned and ran towards BWF door, the other guy in Papa Johns locked the door (and called 911?).. Just as the BG with the bad swung at the victim, the victim fell and the bat hit his foot... the victim reached in his pocket and threw his cash at the BG's (one with the bat, the other with a gun). The BG's picked up the cash and ran. Victim was not injured.
