    Welcome to the site Southpaw!
    Ivor is part of the Old Virginia network so yeah, it's in Gods Country.
    We have members there and do a lot of work for the Weather Service so we spend a fair amount of time around it.

    We bought our Great Dane there which was nearly a disaster, but I can't hold the whole place to blame for one backyard breeder.

    So...welcome from a little further south!

    If he can pick a banjo, we might want him at Lobby Day at the General Assembly. ..

    Deliverance is precisely what I had in mind.

    A couple of years ago at Lobby Day, Senator Saslaw (when he saw all the Guns Saves Lives stickers & mass of humanity wearing them) was overheard to say, "Looks like the entire cast of Deliverance is here."

    Might be fitting to serenade him from the courtyard or Bell Tower.

    Deliverance is exactly right we will deliver the message not to tread on our 2nd amendment rights. A whole lot of legislators need that message delivered

    Let's keep this in mind - it is only a month 'til Lobby Day.

    Maybe a strolling troubadour in the courtyard as people enter the GA Building.

    Some things to think about - got my wheels turning.

    Welcome, there are a few members out your way, 1000ydshooter, Lincoln7, OldVirginiaJoe (names from memory). :-)

    The forum is a great place to learn and share. Be sure to read up on the VA laws and know your rights.

    Join VCDL, the number 1 gun rights organization in Virginia and try to make it to an open carry dinner if you can. It is always fun to talk guns to other gun fanatics.

    Most peoples eyes glaze over after two minutes of gun talk. :-( Our dinners usually last about two hours and you would be surprised how fast they go by when talking guns. :-)

    I was in Ivor an hour ago on an EMS run. I run the countywide Paramedic Zone car out of Courtland 10 days a month. Live in Isle of Wight. Welcome!

    I enjoyed the banjo video!

    It seems like the "country"-south-side may be approaching critical mass and be able to host a dinner locally sometime. :-)

    I missed the Surry House when I went to Skidmark's trial. Just something to think about.....

    Yes, here I am in Ivor. Be aware that "Ivor" addresses include those in both Isle of Wight County AND Southampton Co., where the TOWN of Ivor is actually located.

    Welcome! I, too, have GB roots, where all my other kin are still imprisoned in traffic. We really should have a southside confederation formed here, and split some grub together, or have a grill fired up at one of our houses. Just remember to leave any city ideas you might have back where you came from. We like the country the way it is, including a "do-it-yourself" philosophy, which tends to keep our taxes low. We don't complain about what the govment does not do here. Don't screw it up!

    Hey, Libtards, it's the "Bill of Rights," not the "Bill of Needs" . . . . .

    If the 2A does not apply to modern weapons, then the 1A does not apply to modern communications like the Internet! How do you like them apples!?

    Thought there was a thread not to long ago about one of those shops not being at all tolerant, let alone friendly, towards anybody coming in armed. Someone with more energy might want to actually do a search to bring it up again.

    stay safe.

    Ok, heck, I went and did it. It's here http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...=ivor+virginia

    Bersides, I needed to come back and apologize for not welcoming our new member.

    NOW HOLD ON THERE, my 2A friend! Don't get too exagerative on your idea that they don't tell you how to live out here. We have our city Nazi's out here in the country guvment who are all too happy to do just that. I am in a fight with IOW Co right now, as they wrote me a citation for using a camper on my 86 acre farm to spend the night a few nights a year, when hunting season is in. They would have taken me to court if I refused to back down, so I did, for now. I plan to fight this. (Where is "User" when you need him?) They also wrote me up because the camper trailer did not have a stinkin inspection or current DMV tag on the license plate. The vehicle is not on the road, mind you. Isn't this stupid? I have three litle boys/sons here, and we cannot spend the night in our camper sometimes, ON A FARM!!! On an unpaved STATE gravel road, zoned agricultural use, with crops and pine forest all over the place! I say this is assinine, and I hope to find others around here to stand with me and undo this ordinance.
