    What to do while visiting Washington D.C.?

    I'd like to go for a visit to D.C. since I haven't been in almost 20 years. I know I cannot carry at all within D.C. but I don't want to make 99% of the trip unarmed. Are there any shops in the area that might store my weapon while I'm there? What do others do? It's times like these when we need...

    Peninsula Town Center stickers

    I rarely go there anymore but I was invited to go along with some friends last nigh to dinner and a movie and it seems that all of the businesses there have "no firearms" stickers on the doors.

    On primary offenses

    imported post I'm baffled that Virginia has made it mandatory that all front seat passengers wear seatbelts in a car. You can get a ticket for not wearing one BUT this is not a primary offense, meaning that if a LEO sees you driving in violation, he/she cannot stop you unless there is some...

    imported post I now carry my Hi-Power more rather than my revolver and carry two spare mags for a total of 39 rounds. I'm just waiting for the day when we experience something similar to what just happened and I don't think 5 rounds would be much of a match for anything like that.
