    Duvall IS closer to civilization.

    Duvall East Side? Is there another Duvall in Washington State? How about West Side of Washington State. East Side we are talking the Spokane to Walla Walla Areas well lets not stop there Central Washington is around Wenatchee, Yakima, Tri-Cities areas.

    Just a little joking and prodding!

    Thumbs up New guy on the eastside

    New guy to the group and new to firearms in general. I've been carrying a firearm concealed for about a year and go shooting from time to time but still am very novice to a lot of gun information, ect. Funny to think about it now but I used to be pretty anti gun and "liberal" thinking. My how things chance when you grow up a little (turning 30 soon). I'm still liberal in some ideas but I have really come to believe in the 2nd amendment and it is concerning that a gun can strike fear in so many people and some push easily for constitutional rights to be taken away. I have talked to some people who have commented on that a gun is just a tool, it's not a means to itself. I really believe in that and see how true that is.

    Anyway, getting off topic of this thread. I've never open carried before but I do think it is a valuable tool in educating people on firearms. I hope to meet some you all and talk and learn some more about attitudes and such regarding firearms, open carry and the 2nd amendment.

    You have to remember "east side" means different things to different people....East side of the Cascades? East side of the State?....of I'm sorry, I know, you ment east side of the lake what-ya-ma-call-it....

    Got to be east side of the Cascades to be any east at all, but then I'm considered "north central" go figure.

    Kind of like where "Northwestern University" is...north west of where? NY?

    BTW: anyone interested in dinner at Sully's n Loomis?

    I know that. I grew up in Wenatchee. I've moved over to Kirkland so I'm used to saying "Eastside" to mean east of Lake Washington.

    Maybe it is some of that old liberal coming out lol, the forum is Washington State not Puget Sounds, Seattle ...
    Often Washington is addressed as East and West Side of the Cascades and many in Washington address as indicated before as the State as a whole so West or even North Central to East, It sounds a little presumptuous Stating the East Side as being on the West side of the State.

    Regardless hopefully there is a good turn out.

    Common way over here in North Central is "wet" side or "Dry" side. I lived on the "Wet" side long enough to know what the OP was speaking of, just couldn't resist.

    So this thread is about the East side of the Wet side.

    I would like to meet some people. I am finding it concerning how anti gun some people are.

    And besides the political stuff, spending time on the range is fun. And while I only own 2 firearms right now I want more (I've heard people say it's addicting).

    How often do these meet ups happen? I would like to meet tomorrow but the in-laws are flying in tomorrow and have to pick them up at the airport in the morning.

    Interested in knowing what is talked about.

    They happen as often as someone wants to schedule them. Pick a date, time and location and you have done 90% of the work. The next is showing up. I'm just guessing but I bet we talk about guns. This is my first one.
