    What Would You Say to Someone Who Freaks Out at the Sight of a Gun?

    I still think “Hi”, or a hand wave, is a good first response. However, my comment was in 2015 and the world has become much more hysterical since then. My current FIRST response will be friendly. If confronted by an SJW, I am not going to fool around. Throwing up the fence (see Craig...

    How are people open carrying given the state’s definition of concealed?

    Carry / Open carry in Ogden, Perry, SLC

    Hey all, I'll be visiting Ogden, Utah this summer. I have a valid non-resident Utah CCW permit. As I understand it, many of the weird variations in Utah law go away with the permit. I will likely carry concealed, but may need to OC for some reason. I want to find out a few things regarding...

    After how many drinks is carrying a no-no?

    This started in the Washington State forum thread "After how many drinks is carrying a no-no?". I want to talk about it in the Virginia forum. Americans treat alcohol in a very odd way. Culturally, we're morons when it comes to alcohol. We behave poorly when we consume it. This is the...
