    It is a city park, and the event is sponsored by city and county.....

    Next year

    After I saw you guys, I ran into the P.O. Chief of Police and asked about next year, he saw no reason not to have us put up a table next time they do this.

    Excellent! With some more lead time and more publicity, we can pull it off.

    well i got there at 6 and left at 7:30, home by 8.
    finally got a warm can of root beer and a cold hot dog, so i managed to keep my strength going.
    i carried a wa law booklet and a try fold out front for folks to see and finally a guy asked me where they were passing them out,
    i told him i had brought them with me and he looked disappointed, I asked if he had any questions and he just said no.
    then i gave them too him and he looked relieved, but didnt seem to want a conversation, oh well...
    i didnt see any other carriers besides the 4 of us.
    did I mention that squeak can be annoying?
    he kept hounding some poor woman at a booth promoting storing emergency food in case you cant get to the store for whatever reason.
    squeak kept telling her that if he didnt get to eat for 2 days in a row, he would steal his neighbors dog and eat that.
    she was aghast! then he told her that she would probably do the same thing herself! she was aghast again!
    he accused me of following him around, so i made myself scarce and he came looking for me, he seemed lonely, and kind of sad.
    P.O. cops were out in force and kitsap sheriff was there too, I talked to all of them,
    and even though i was so comfortable and animated with my hands while we talked, i even remember resting my hand on the butt
    of my cross draw, carried star modelo super, not a word was said, nor eyebrow raised!
    and i got a stick on p.o.junior cops badge and a stick on kitsap junior deputy star!

    And!!!

    I should say that i might have egged on squeak and his talk of eating dogs.
    at the end of one of his rants to the lady, I said to her, that if you dont want to eat a dog,
    maybe she should try eating a kitten, that they are very tasty.
    I and she both laughed it off as me just being silly, but then,
    I added that it might be a very good idea, to keep a sack of kittens on hand just in case
    you find you cant get to the store for whatever reason. she looked at me like I was a monster. I apologized and she said OK.
    actually though, kittens, although tasty, barely have enough meat to feed a young girl, so they should be hoarded
    untill they are really fat cats or your feral cat population has grown really large.
    and speaking of open carry, squeak was wearing sandals, and I am nice, so I told him, he had pretty feet.
    his toes had sweat on them, I thought that was kind of weird.

    Port Orchard OC

    As I was coming out of Fred Meyer in Port Orchard today A young Lady Aproached me saying open carry (enthusiasticly) and I replied yes it is legal here in Wa. and she told me that they see it all the time in Idaho but were happy to know it was legal here too. I gladly handed her A pamphlet and explained about our forum .One more positive encounter makes for A great day.
    I truly Love my Country, But the government scares the he!! out of me.

    DEMAND IT
    Congress SHALL NOT receive A salary greater than any service member and will be given EQUIVELANT insurance as any service member

    I came into this world kicking and screaming covered in someone else's blood. And if necessary to protect the Constitution of The United States of AMERICA. I will go out the same way

    Last night, my wife and I attended the campaign kickoff event for Tim Matthes who is running for mayor of Port Orchard. The event was held at Moondogs Too downtown. Many pro 2A folks were in attendance, but I was the only one OC. If you live in P.O., I highly recommend that you vote for this gent. He attended one of our Kitsap County picnics in a county park when we were in a battle with the county commissioners to change their park code. Tim is fiercely pro 2A!

    Also, give Moondogs Too a try for lunch or dinner.

    Sunday they had Bay st. in Port Orchard closed to traffic do to A big car show and street fair. I had to park at the 7-11 and got a ride to the Hideaway cafe for breakfast chatted with Vern and John the owners had A great visit.
    And went around town looking at all the cars (they had hundreds of them) checked out all the little vendor tents up and down Bay st. And stopped in several bussineses found A new coin shop toward the east end of downtown the two guys that own it(Mike and Dennis) are both pro carry. Had A great day even with the few sprinkles we had.

    Kitsap County Fair and Rodeo

    Just spent the afternoon and evening at the Kitsap County Fair and Rodeo. Had a great time. Rode a few rides, watched the Sheriff's office demonstrate their K-9 units, looked at a bunch of fine animals and had a blast watching the rodeo. One carny worker asked if my sidearm was real to which I answered with a big smile "well, it wouldn't do any good to carry a fake one." He walked away perplexed and seemed to chat with a few other workers before wondering off. Another worker smiled and shook my hand for carrying and made light jokes as I rode the ride. Got lots of strange looks from folks but no one else mentioned it. All in all a good night. Hi score on the bare back broncs was 88 and high score on the bulls was 90 and a Port Orchard lady won the local level barrel race. A great rodeo!

    Thumbs up Out and about

    I went into the Money Tree in Port Orchard today and while I was taking care of business the guy at the next teller kept looking over at me and finally asked how do they feel about packing heat over here? I told him if your legal to own A handgun you can wear it in the open. He said he recently moved here from Montana and OC,d there all the time but wasn,t sure what the laws were here so I gave him A pamphlet and told him about the forum. I think we have another OCer in Port Orchard. Hooray!!!

    Albertson's Port Orchard

    I was at Albertson's buying some chuck roast and some guy asked me whats with that as he glanced down at my hip "your the second guy I have seen carrying but your smarter, his was cocked" and I told him not smarter just a different kind of handgun. he told me he was from TX. and you see that all the time down there but he didn't know it was legal up here so I explained it to him a bit gave him a brochure introduced myself, told him about the forum and wished him A good day.

    My wife open carried this morning by herself for the first time when she took the dog to Long Lake park. She has been an occassional concealed carrier, but I told her that open carrying in a empty park would be a deterrent. She returned home very proud that she ran the dog and had no fear of being bothered. She even left all of her ID in the car, as I always do. I love it!

    Tell her I am proud of her and next time I want to see that thing strapped to her side, and let her know it gets easier the more she does it.

    Bremerton 9/11 Ground breaking

    I O/C'd in Evergreen park during Bremerton's 9/11 ceremony, no one seemed to notice my Remington 1911R1 on my hip, pretty hard to miss, with two mags on the other side. Maybe I should have slung my M1 Carbine over my shoulder, think anyone would notice that??

    I OC all over Poulsbo... Went to Sluy's and Hot Shots Java this morning... Got a few funny looks while waiting for my coffee from the people sitting at the tables there, but this is nothing new, but other than that no issues as it should be... I will add the caveat that it is Halloween, and people might think its part of a "costume!"
