    possible Columbia meet up

    Alright, I just got here about two weeks and am getting settled in. (just got the internet back yesterday in fact)

    Who else is around the Columbia area and would be up for a meet and greet?

    Huh?

    If you are asking where when and how about the meeting that would be determined as soon as any one showed interest. I'm basically looking for other people who OC in Columbia.

    I thought about doing apicnic in the STL area. We really don't have enough OC people here to make it happen. If this happens in Columbia I would sure be interested. Perhaps more fromthis area would make the trek as well.

    Me and three other people started the meets in KC. Now it has grown to an average of around 20 people at each meet. Looking to eventually get the same thing going here in Columbia. (Just moved here). We have to start somewhere.


    You have to start small. I will meet with any individual who is interested. Any one who wants to meet up, grab lunch, coffee, or whatever, and support our 2A right at the same time, let me know and we will work out a time and place.

    I'd love to help ya get the ball rolling, but gas is going to have to come down before I drive to Columbia, lol. Most of the 2A guys I know (and meets) I've been to in Columbia were CCW. You could even try posting on MissouriCarry.com about a Columbia OC/CCW meetif you're brave.

    I live almost an hour south of Columbia, a little ways past Jefferson City. I've OC'd in Columbia when I go there and when my visit isn't school or city park related.

    Over the next month and a half I have two trips out of state planned and will probably be using every available out of the house moment outdoors morel mushroom hunting. I carry all the time while out mushroom hunting in some of the large public tracts of lands outside of Columbia.

    I would be interested in attending a get together but it would depend on a few things as to whether I would make it or not if it were to happen before the first week of May.

    As you know MSSA folks for the most part are not real big on OC. Here in the STL area we get only 6 or 8 (on a good day) to come out for the OC events. DOC can peak to this better than I. When we have an OC event I personally invite 40-60 potential Facebook freinds. To date none have shown. OH YES "I SUPPORT THE SECOND AMENDMENT", they say.But they won't give the time of day to do anything positive... Just talk unless you actually show up to any pro-2A events.

    I'm not from Columbia, but Jeff City. I'm not against a meeting, but I'm not wanting to put on a display or anything.

    If you come this way, we could go to the Shooters Club and do some shooting as well.

    I just carry, open or concealed. I'm not interested in pictures and such. I'm probably not the type your looking for, but the offer still stands.

    I live about 20 miles east of Columbia. I don't get to the city very often, too busy, but when I do I carry everywhere we go. Well, except for the mall. Might be interested in a meet if I could fit it in. We don't carry to educate just to protect and defend our family, but we don't shy away when asked about why we carry.

    Depending on the time, I would consider making the drive from St. Louis for a Columbia meet-up. I went to Mizzou and have many friends who still live in Columbia. I'm about due for a visit.

    Columbia Meet Up

    Hi Guys...

    Sorry for the delayed reply...

    Was in STL for a bit. Slun @ 5pm is fine by me. If earlier works better for others, let me know. Will be away from email during AM and midday due to church so you can catch me via text @ 573-673-2485. Starbucks is always good.

    Take care,
    Mel
