    Hey gang, I haven't been around for awhile due to a heavy school schedule. I have, however, been thinking a lot about the RCW regarding unlawful carry of weapons capable of producing bodily harm. I have written a letter of recommendation to our State Legislators in regards to the issue. I...

    Standing around with a gun on your hip...

    So recently with this cold weather, I have not been OCing. This is probably why I have not been frequenting the boards as of late. Anyways, I was thinking about OC the other day when I was at Fred Meyer with my wife. She usually uses the restroom there, and I got to thinking: How odd would this...

    Professional WA Open Carry Logo

    My friend is a professional graphic designer for ICON, so I asked him to throw something together for WA OC. This is what he came up with. I hope you all like it. He hasn't put any color in it, and any feedback would be appreciated. Changes can still be made, too. Joe~

    Portland Expo gun show

    Going on this weekend. I went today after the Vancouver lunch meet. There is a vendor there by the name of Two Bears Trading Co. The lady there knew absolutely everything about ammunition.

    Question regarding ID

    Since the open carry movement has been getting a lot of media attention lately regarding illegal detentions and arrests, I thought I would ask a question. Does ANYONE have any federal or state law that shows when we are required to identify ourselves? This is all I found, and it seems it is only...

    Good OC day

    Went out to run some errands today. Went to Office Depot (on Hazel Dell Ave.) for some printer goods. Got up to the register and the gentleman behind the counter kept looking at my hip. Once he rang up all my stuff he says, "are you over 21?" I said "Yeah... why do I need to be 21?" He grabs...

    I was looking online for statistics involving murders with guns. I found the firearms death rate per capita for 2010 on a random site.

    Question regarding carrying on school grounds

    Say my wife wants to take the dog to the school yard to get them some exercise and it is after school hours (like 9PM at night), can she carry there? It is not on school grounds (i.e. in the buildings or even in the parking lot), it is just the area where they do track and stuff. Joe~

    IMPORTANT: Please Read concerning police encounters

    After reading Josh's story about being ticketed for OCing, I realized a huge flaw in peoples' approach to responding to an officer when stopped. Josh said he was "detained" and not arrested. It is unbelievable they did ANYTHING past talking. You ALL need to learn to protect your rights as...

    Does your dress/atire change your OC encounters?
