    Consulted with the Mrs. She likes the idea of going (said it should be the safest place in NoVa that day). Assuming no crises come up, we'll be there with the little one.

    Also invited one of my coworkers to come along with his other half. He's mulling it over.

    I'll sign up for what to bring as it gets closer.

    I'll be there....

    ...with the citronella candles; should I do an early arrival to "reserve" the area again (just PM).

    Unsure if spouse will be there.

    I'll add a few "bringing with me items" from the food/wares list in the coming weeks.

    sounds cool, but I am rather new and do not know anyone. I may just go to the park that day and do some fishing (in the lake), and see how it is. I lost my holster when I moved from Centreville, to Arlington, and I have not replaced it, so I may not OC that day.

    That is not a reason not to attend.
    OC is not a requirement, heck carrying isn't a requirement.

    Post what your gun is (start a new thread) and maybe someone has a something lying around that will work, or swing by a local shop and pick up a fobus to hold you over until you get something else.

    If you carry a G20/21/30/29 w/o a rail I have a security holster that will work.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Which is precisely why we hold these things :-)

    Don't be shy. We may shoot, but we certainly don't bite.

    I'll echo those who say come on out and meet us. This is how you expand your circle.

    And ditto on what do you carry. No telling who has a holster they don't use any more.

    Speak for yourself.

    Sadly, I don't think I'm going to be able to make this event, as looking at the calendar, I'm reminded of two prior commitments I have to juggle already.

    Come on out anyway. If you carry a 4" K-Frame or similar, I've got a duty holster you can have...

    Well, my coworker won't be able to make it (he has a family commitment), so it'll just be the Mrs. and me (plus the 5-month-old master-of-the-universe).

    We can bring several bags of ice and some dessert. We can also probably come up with the hamburger buns.
