    New around these parts!

    Well, hello everyone.
    As you can tell....I'm new to these forums. (not really sure if this is the proper location for an introduction....but I looked elsewhere and figured it would best go here) I'm currently residing in Alaska where I've lived all my life, however in less than a month I will be moving to Chesapeake, VA to open up a Cigar lounge. Being in Alaska my whole life, he issue of OC was never really an issue at all since we are so free to carry however we please.

    I have been reading up on all of the posts I could find about VA open carry, and I am thankful for the great amounts of Information that have been provided thus far. Thanks everyone for the awesome info and maybe I'll see some of you down there...Bowfishing anyone?

    Also....any AF&AM around?

    Welcome to the site and Virginia!

    I was born, raised and will probably die in Virginia and there are only two places I'd rather live...one is Alaska. It must be hard leaving.

    Ticks are friendly. They get attached to you.

    I hear they're the huggy kissy types. I'm probably going to OC a flamethrower to "hug" them back.

    DEET type repelents work well on ticks. You have not mentioned chiggers, but it works well agaist them too. Welcome to the Old Dominion and be sure to join VCDL!

    My "bear" hands....nah I was carrying my .40s&w IWI Jericho baby eagle. Now I'm carrying an EAA witness .40S&W poly. If it doesn't make them leave...well then they intended on eating you in the first place haha. In kodiak however the bears and the people get along surprisingly. The most interaction you'll get from them here, is them ambling out of the trees towards you because they know it makes you run from the huge cooler of fish you just caught lol.
