    Open Carry Field Trip + Dinner / Saturday May 14, 2011

    Howdy folks,

    Thought I'd set up an OC event for us (NoVA folks) in May, hopefully we'll have some NICE weather! What could be better than traipsing around an air-conditioned museum looking at historical firearms? And not just any museum, but The National Firearms Museum! Did I mention admission to the NFM is FREE? Oh, you might be hungry afterwards? Got that covered too, we'll do lunch, er... I mean DINNER at Five Guys just down the road on Rt 50, but you gotta cover your own costs on that one.

    National Firearms Museum website /w directions and further info:
    http://www.nationalfirearmsmuseum.org/default.asp

    Cameras are allowed and encouraged, however tripods are not. They take up too much space and block access to baby strollers/wheel chairs in the exhibits.

    Time: 1400 [Museum] / 1600 [Leave for dinner @ Five Guys]

    Date: 14 May 2011

    National Firearms Museum - NRA HQ
    11250 Waples Mill Rd, Fairfax

    Five Guys - Fairfax Towne Center
    12156 Fairfax Towne Center, Fairfax
    See Map Location

    Discuss below, see y'all there!

    I suppose it would be Dinner. In the Midwest we'd call it Linner.

    The proper usage would be:

    For months between April and September...Lunner
    For all other months................................Dunch

    That's Southern verbiage. I guess Linner is right for NOTVA.

    Personally, at 1600, I'd go with "Dupper"

    Funny, the first option I came up with between Dinner and Supper was Sinner... is that bad?

    We may be up for the event. My son has been wanting to go back to the museum, so this could be a good excuse.

    Sounds good, I am going to mark it on the calendar. ...and I don't care what the meal is called as long as it involves me eating:-)

    Fair warning: Agent19 has hands that make a 10mm look like a compact and the visual acuity of an 18 yo. He does with that 10 what some can't do with a .22.

    Yeah, I've been on the range with him where we could move and shoot. One of the folks you don't want on the other team!

    If this isn't my on-call day I'll try to be there. (Edit to add. Yup, it is. Bummer.)

    Dang Marco, I forgot about that VCDL shoot. But yeah, it's rather far away and all. And I haven't been practicing. And it's raining today. And... And...

    We will have to test our skills again sometime, but I'm gonna pass on driving 4 hours to SW VA to attend a shoot. I've also never shot IDPA. Care to drive to NoVA?

    I have to be in NoVA soon but I'll have the little ones with so no shooting unless it is required.


    Edit:
    Thanks fellas.
    I wasn't planning on betting him with the plastic 10mm (this time) I was going to use a .357 magnum Semi Auto.

    Well, Lemme know when your up next time. I'll go anywhere not named "Clark" or "Blue". I think you know my reasoning on those. Can I use my Mark III?

    Well, where and when I was "raised up" (Alexandria, when the population of that city was still less than 12,000), "dinner" was served between about 2 and 3 in the afternoon; "supper" was about 5 or 6 in the evening. And, even though we never had "dinner" except on special occasions and Sundays, and never had lunch and dinner on the same day, and "supper" generally consisted of boiled turnips or boiled tomatoes & stale bread (Grandmother called it, "stewed tomatoes"), we still observed the proper nomenclature.

    So I'll skip "lunch", and have "dinner" at fiveguys. The peanuts don't care what you call'em.

    Hope to be there -realized later that I'm scheduled to do the "Part Three" lecture for Michael Orsinger's NRA "Personal Protection In the Home" course in Ashburn that day. I think I'll be done in time to head out to Fairfax.

    I was allowed to drink all the water I wanted during those hours. Which was good, because that way I could fill up on water and not have to eat so much of the [*stuff*] my grandmother made. She had the idea that the depression was still on, and that we had to eat as much garbage as possible. I had no idea, for like thirty or forty years, that "meat loaf" could actually be an edible food. But she'd apparently spent summers as a girl with her Chichester relatives in the F'burg area, and had acquired these notions of propriety that required her to make the distinction between "dinner" and "supper". Too bad she hadn't learned to cook.

    You can't imagine what a luxury it is for me to be able to eat at FiveGuys.

    It just so happens that I'll be in Fairfax on the 14th. My stepdaughters are doing a Gluten Free Cooking demo at the Wegman's over by the County Government Center from 11-3. I probably can't get away for the Museum Tour (Although I'd LOVE to) but maybe I might be able to make it to Five Guys for dinner, depending on how many vehicles we take and if they want to come along (probably not though, since they can't eat ANYTHING on the menu...)

    If I do come, I may bring a friend from NoVa...
