    Is anyone still in contact with G20-IWB24/7? It appears he hasn't been here since 2011/2012; about as active as me. I am going to need to take care of some business, assuming that he hasn't changed real life professions. Any info appreciated. I'll be checking here as I've escaped the clutches of...

    Comcast in King County

    http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/02/19/comcast-to-firearms-shops-your-moneys-no-good-here/ Regrettably, I am going to be dropping Comcast. I really only use them for Internet; don't watch TV and can live without the phone, but it's cheaper to bundle. At any rate, any recommendations for...

    Judicial Races

    imported post The State Supreme Court and Court of Appeals are all uncontested so not really anything to discuss there. In King County, the Superior Court has three positions on the ballot. Two of the races are losers for us no matter who wins (Position 1: Bradshaw v. Perisien and Position 37...

    imported post Appears that nwcdl.org domain is parked. Any news? Although the forum never really took off, the downloads section was a nice augmentation to OCDO. Lots of opinions, training bulletins, etc. in the downloads section.

    If you joined this forum after January 2008 poll

    imported post It appears that distribution of the WGR's began somewhere around the beginning of 2008 and really picked up steam with the printing headed by surfj9009. Only vote if you joined after January 1, 2008. I think I heard about it on THR, but don't remember coming here until Lonnie...

    Lousy timing on my letter to Federal Way Attorney

    imported post http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D8UM090O0&show_article=1 Finally decided to get off my butt and fire off the letter to Federal Way (Atty, Council and Mayor) regarding both their Muni codes on carry in parks and council chambers. Guess I'll sit on it for a few, but not long.
