    I reported the OP and asked them to sticky it. Maybe you can do likewise?

    Hey Q -

    Maybe you could ask the same for the Warren event.

    I previously stated on MGO I would not be there...however I'm car pooling with autosurgeon so I will be there, looking good as usual.
    The worst weapon is the human mind, its created and done things far worse than a gun can, has, or ever will. Its the human mind that tells the gun what to do and animates the inanimate object.

    With all these gun control laws in place I have yet to find a single one that has saved someones life, but I can find hundreds of stories where a gun has.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow, I just picked up a holster for the Glock 19 I recently acquired so that will be my EDC for the lunch. Have a safe drive everyone!

    Had a good time. It was nice meeting many new people and I am encouraged that local interest in OC is on an upswing.

    Great time, many new faces! Good time had by all!

    And, DrTodd got to meet his avatar!

    Afterwards, we went to Silver Bullet to expose ourselves to temptation.

    Then, Steel Magnolia & I witnessed an auto accident, and had a great LEO encounter with Kentwood's finest.

    After the luncheon at Cafe Connection (btw, GREAT food), we went to Silver Bullet to see if there was anything we couldn't live without. Got out for under $20; whew....

    On the way home, we witnessed a traffic accident (Autosurgeon, you missed seeing it by 30 seconds).

    Checked on the victims, all OK, and stuck around for Kentwood PD to arrive.

    Had a nice chat with the driver of the not-at-fault vehicle about OC, CC, CPLs, sidearms and MOC. Nice kid, coming home from work

    When KPD arrived, Steel Magnolia (who had put her long coat on due to the cold) announced that the was carrying with a CPL. I simply announced that I was armed with my hands well away from my .45. He replies 'I can see that!'

    He took our statements, no drama, and then we had a nice chat about OC, CC and a well armed citizenry. Great guy; one of Kentwood's finest! First interaction with Kentwood PD, OC or CC.

    Gave him a trifold, as well as the driver of the not-at-fault vehicle. I don't think the elderly woman who was at fault would have been interested in one....
