    Self-Defense Shooting - One Year Later

    imported post Well, I have come up on the anniversary of that horrible evening in New Castle. It has been one year since those two punks surprised me in my own driveway and jammed a gun into my ribs and demanded my money, and I returned the favor of surprise by shooting one of them point-blank...

    Finally taking the plunge!

    imported post OK, OK. I know I've been against some of the "requirements" we need to satisfy just to get a CCDW License, but since the process isn't going to change (and could get worse in the future), and the benefits are greater, I've decided to go ahead and get my CCDW. This isn't to say...

    Have you ever just NOT wanted to OC?

    imported post Greetings. I had a strange occurrence earlier today and wanted to ask everyone else here if it has ever happened to you. I try to OC wherever/whenever I can. I usually feel "naked" when I don't OC (or at least have my gun in my car somehow). I've grown accustomed to having my...

    Anyone else getting wierd error messages??

    imported post When posting today, I've gotten stuff like this showing up. It happens after clicking on "Send" so naturally I think my post didn't go through, when it actually did. :banghead::cuss::question::question::question: Edited to add: Maybe I should post this on the general forum...

    Reloading, reloading, and more reloading

    imported post Well, it's become evident that we need a thread dedicated to reloading, so here it is! Post it all here! [and before you ask: no, I don't reload, nor do I plan on it. I just don't shoot often enough to justify reloading (yet)...]

    Off topic: Barrels on the Brandywine wine tasting tour...

    imported post Well, seeing as how we're planning our next OC meeting already, and the fact that March also includes other happenings, too... I'd like to personally invite every wine drinker (or at least, taster)here along with me and my fiancee (and another gun nut from XDtalk) to the Barrels...

As has been suggested, for the next time instead of just eating, maybe we could try to make arrangements with a...

    Weapon Retention Training??

    imported post OK, I'm sure most (if not all) of us here on OpenCarry.org have had some sort of weapons training as far as how to hold your gun, aiming, hitting your target, clearing of malfunctions, etc... I'm wondering if anyone here has had (or has considered) any sort of additional training...

    Delaware State Police Tric Tics Site

    imported post LOL. It keeps getting more "interesting" on the internet, especially when it comes to knowing what offenders look like! The Tric-Tics page is a follow-up on the "threat" the Police made in January that any prostitution-related arrest would be made public (and include a photo of...

    OC in/on a Safe School and Recreation Zone

    imported post OK, I'm not 100% sure I understand this Statute. It's found in our favorite section of the "Law": TITLE 11 - Crimes and Criminal Procedure of the Delaware Criminal Code, CHAPTER 5. SPECIFIC OFFENSES, Subchapter VII. Offenses Against Public Health, Order and Decency, Subpart A...

    PUBLIC libraries: their rules vs. our Constitutional rights

    imported post Short version: I was wondering if a PUBLIC librarycan set their own rules and prohibit weapons just like a private business can?? I understand that any private business can make up their own rules, and if they decide they don't want to allow guns (OC or CC) on their property...

    OC in a NCC public library

    imported post OK, I've been wondering about OC in a New Castle County public library. I can't recall any signs prohibiting it, but then again I've never really looked for such signs. Wynder, and anyone else familiar w/ the Laws, please evaluate these rules and apply them to any...
