We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Governor Northam wants war
Northam has declared war on Virginia's gun owners: CHP holders, open carriers, hunters, target shooters, sport shooters, collectors, and competitors. All of us. (Northam wants to strip us of our right to self-defense and is even looking at confiscating guns.)
The votes are in. We will converge on Burke Lake Park Saturday July 16th at 4PM until whenever. I will try to get our usual spot but as it is first come first serve we may have to play it by ear.
We traditional do this potluck so pick something to bring and keep an eye on how many folks are...
In a nutshell converts CHPs to CWPs, not perfect but I think puts us closer to decriminalization of weapons carry.
"A permit issued pursuant to this section shall entitle the permittee to carry concealed any weapon that he may lawfully...
Me and another forum member were OCing and standing in the Dickey Ridge Picnic area parking lot this afternoon when a park ranger drove up to chat with our group for a minute, showed no concern or made any mention about the arms. He was friendly and polite and on his way in a minute. Really...
If you have exceptional gun knowledge, are a people person, and have retail experience we are looking for you. Not required but if you have a sellers number that is a plus. See website for address, please apply in person.
Gee the anti-gun stuff just keeps on coming.
"According to records at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark., she also drafted an executive order restricting the importation...
I think this woman will be bad for the RKBA. In her heart I don't think she supports the right and seems to like the tactic of denying hearings to prevent cases from being heard if she thinks the decision might not go they way she likes...
Spamming the forum again but Guns and Ammo Warehouse is having our anniversary/ 5.11 days sale this weekend. 20% of 5.11 items and just about everything else is for sale too.
Oh and if you ever wanted to see a Bushmaster ACR and FN SCAR side by side we have one of each in stock.
NOVA you are letting me down usually you are on the ball about posting the meeting threads.;)
So I will be at the meeting and then the new double secret probation location for dinner later.:monkey
Since it was such a nice evening me and the fiancee went up the drive tonight. I got to carry last year during the short window of opportunity but this was my first real visit under the new rule. Gotta say it did feel good to get out and walk around and not have to disarm.
Petzal has taken the crown from Zumbo in my book.
Summation: Don't OC it will legislatively be taken away from us. Don't OC you could be shot by the police, talk about police bashing!
Seriously boycott field and stream now...
Since the used revolver deal went over so well I thought I'd ask the forum if they wanted me to continue to advertise them here. No one complained but I don't want to offend anyone so I'll go with the majority of the poll.
In the meantime we still have plenty of S&W 10s for $225...
Sorry to advertise on the forum but l really want to share with my friends here an outstanding deal on a whole bunch of revolvers we just got in yesterday. In a nutshell we picked up a large number of pre-lock S&W 65, and a few 19s. Later model 10s and 64s, a few old Ruger Speed...
I made this map to show where one can have a loaded longgun in their vehicle.
ETA: To give credit where it is due I borrowed the Geospatial enforcement map from Virginia1774.org, and just added the red for localities banning loaded longarms in vehicles and yellow for those that...
Cool when you consider they are virtually unregulated weapons in most states and one can make it with some simple components.
