    OT? Best rental inventory in Puget Sound area?

    So what ranges can you recommend with a decent / broad rental inventory? I have a couple of people I need to help buy their first handgun, and recently found out to my disappointment that Bulls Eye in Tacoma has a much more restricted rental inventory than in times past.

    Restaurant/bar restrictions in Oregon?

    imported post OCDO's Restaurant Carry map says "Allowed" for Oregon, with no further elaboration. But Handgunlaw.us says the following in their PDF on Oregon laws: That's just editorializing on their part, right? I certainly can't find anything in the ORS that would support the boldfaced...

    Help a DC resident thinking about firearms

    imported post Megan Mcardle, a writer living in DC, contemplates whether she should buy a firearm if Heller v DC is upheld.
