    Lightbulb Goose's Travelling OC/CC Road Show - Where to meet

    AGAIN, apologies to GreenIsFaster for totally derailing his thread. I was not totally at fault but accept full responsibility.

    I've spoken with Chehalis Scott about the picture (see link above to thread) and I won't divulge what we discussed. He was in agreement on some things and not in agreement on some things. I've spoken with Squeak and I will be contacting the rest of the good crew down here next week.

    I am on vacation next week (starting 5/8/11 - 5/16/11) thanks to a great boss knowing I needed a week off. I also have the capacity to travel almost anywhere in the state during this week. Anyone want to meet up and explain themselves face to face? Internet arguing is ridiculous. I'll gladly discuss my full point of view. I have no need to shout it, but I am willing to defend it. Any takers?

    DO NOT TAKE THIS WRONG. This is exactly how it sounds. Anyone that really knows me will know this. I am simply willing to discuss this with anyone who wishes to step off the computer and come talk to me.

    First Stop - (5/9 Lacey) Mission Accomplished
    Second Stop - Wednesday (5/11) 10am Federal Way Starbuck's (Where the Saturday Meet is)
    Third Stop - Thursday Ridgeline / Yelm Area (5/12) 2-6PM Is there a Starbuck's near this place? My son has a track meet.
    Fourth Stop - CANCELLED

    I will not entertain arguing in this thread. The smartest thing to do for OCDO is to remove this situation from the board. I am doing so. Those with my contact information, feel free to reach out to me if you wish to. That is all.

    I don't know Port Orchard well. I can get to your place or anywhere you want to meet. OnStar works wonders. Call me or PM and we can set that one up if that day works for you.

    Don't count out a trip just yet. Ani's grandparents are having ... complications and they live in Mount Vernon. Stay tuned. I can't confirm nor deny just yet ... You have my number.

    We're tentatively planning a Friday overnight to Saturday trip to Mount Vernon. It's still in the planning stages. I'll know by Monday

    The joy of my job is they pay me for mileage. I wonder if this counts as a business trip if I take along a few cases of red bull.

    Forum Etiquette: Sorry for Triple Posting. I should've multi-quoted. It's been a LONG week.

    It is as long as you deliver them. I will gladly take them off your hands to help fulfill your requirements.

    Well, like I say, don't let a bad forum ecounter disrupt your normal beliefs and ideas, just move on with life and live it to the fullest without worry on what others think. Hope to see you around the Kelso/Longview area again someday.

    The son's Track Meet should be over in the 5-6pm time frame. Call at your leisure and we'll set something up.

    Is there a link to the complete listing of tour dates? I called ticket master and they have no idea when Goose will be showing, or is this a migration thing?

    Sounds like you're anxious to "get Goosed".

    Here's another possibility for a T-Shirt

    Pulling from the other thread ...

    Quote Originally Posted by NavyLT View Post

    Good gawd... And I have experience too. I started my own sheet storm a year ago when I made comments about a raffle at an event. I was wrong then, and when someone sensibly pointed out my error, I said, yep you are absolutely right! My mistake, sorry for opening by big mouth! And I learned my lesson and moved on.

    Look.... nobody broke the law. There was no negative media coverage. Everybody had a good time. If you don't like what some people did, then don't do those actions yourself, maybe say that their behavior is not something that you, personally, would do and let's just move on.

    I feel like I am in one of those churches where one or two members don't like the color of the carpet so they run off trying to take as many with them to start their own following, the members who are left behind are then split between feelings of what the heck happened or good bye, good riddance and nobody wins.
    I made the comment because NEW people coming to the forum will see people handling firearms in PUBLIC and think it is OK. Having your hand on the grip (or someone else on yours) is NOT the image that should be portrayed. This kind of behavior allows for people who take their guns out of holsters to show friends in public, or remove them from their shoulders.

    I'm not arguing LEGALITY, I'm arguing for the sake of those who will see this behavior and approve of it. Arguing all you want about it's not illegal. Is this the image gun owners want others to see? Do we WANT to give the Brady idiots more ammunition against us? Do we want them seeing us as unsafe and putting more laws on the books about how NOT to handle firearms? BOTH in these pictures are most likely safe gun owners, but if you don't know them, you only see the picture, you'll draw another conclusion.

    When I started OCing I was informed by many of the members in Federal Way not to handle my gun in public. Don't "check" my firearm in its holster by putting my hand on the grip. I have even been told by one of the members in these pictures to NOT carry my weapon without the safety on. I took that comment and researched it to find out I was carry my OWN weapon in an unsafe manner.

    It was GREAT advice and I'm trying to pass it on to other members. You want to handle your firearm in public? It's not for me to decide. It's a judge and 12 jurors. Just keep it holstered around me unless the need should arise. In such a case, Judicious Marksmanship is appreciated.

    Are you going to be around Port Orchard or Federal Way this week NavyLT? Family and job obviously come first, but I'd love to buy you a coffee if you're so inclined. Let me know. We're on the same side, Sir.

    Goose,

    If you want to get paid mileage to deliver some Red Bull to Spokane, there is a faction of us here that would love to meet you.

    Don't get discouraged over a forum squabble. I have had a mild one or two myself, but life is too short to let disagreements ruin the overall good that this forum has been doing, and you have been a valuable part of the progress made here even in the last year.
    Keep Calm and Carry On,

    I must admit, I've only ever been in Spokane once. I was in a bus station on my way from Philadelphia. We got stuck in snow shortly after (Memorial Day 2001) on Snoqualmie Pass. I doubt this week will allow that much of a trip, but it's a possibility. The wife has family in Yakima and needs to pay a visit since her father passed away recnetly.

    Tour Day 1 - Lacey

    Coffee in Lakewood then off to Lacey for Norma's. The Tour begins. I can't WAIT for the gun show (new stop added for this weekend). Odds are I'll be there EARLY both days for a few hours. I won't be working the table unless it's empty or someone needs a break. I might have an hour to spare both days. I still have much to learn about how others view carry as a whole, OC or not. There's some GREAT "arguments" and discussions to be had working the OC table.

    John contacted me last night about deleting my account. I will be moving forward with this action. The tour will move forward as planned regardless. See you guys around this week and at the gun show.
