    Hope I can make it, but the wife and I are down to only one car at the moment, so we might be busy car shopping.

    Her car exploded (literally) last week after the power steering high pressure line burst and the engine caught fire. (On the plus side, someday she can give our son a guilt trip by telling him how she pulled him from a burning car. That's got to be worth something.)

I believe that the Government closer to the people is more aware and better serves its constituents. As such, I will support all efforts which reiterate and establish the 10th Amendment, and will oppose any state mandates on localities without proper funding and a proper hearing.

    As an avid outdoorsman and hunter, I believe in the second amendment and will oppose any and all efforts to restrict gun ownership for the law abiding.

    Props to your wife. Glad all are Ok. It's a bummer to lose your car but much better that no one was injured.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    I think I may show up to this. How well do you guys take to a youngin coming out? I've been around/studied weapons for a while since I was a kid and finally came about to buying a HK USP40 compact which I might open carry but currently in the market for something not so big. What is usually discussed at these meetings and what is the average age group for them?

Then most of us head over to a local restaurant after the meeting for dinner.

    As for age, VCDL members come from all age groups. I know quite a few in the area who fit that description, myself being one of them. In fact, I joined VCDL and started attending meetings when I was 18.
    And I'm going to guess atleast 90% of attendees come carrying?

    LOL....yea it was a very informative meeting...and when you re-met my gf, I was like "whoa...wait a sec...you know him? how? WTF?!?!?!" But yea small world...and she got some insite(sp?) on other views of firearms carriers and how the law works and why we carry....i just wish that other law abiding citizens would be open minded to other points of views instead of being biased towards their view thinking it is the only way....especially when it came to the shootings (mainly the college ones) that it could have been stopped if a few students where allowed to carry (open or CC) it would have drastically reduced the amount of deaths (from my point of view)....as I told my ex-gf...guns arn't bad...its the people behind the gun that makes that choice...the gun is a tool...

    P.S. Just saw the new Pirates movie....wasn't all that bad....and as for my bad sentence structure...i blame my sleeping medicine...sorry
