    Cross-draw/cross-body carry?

    I find cross-draw comfortable, and when using my shoulder holster, I'm perhaps more comfortable than with any other gear. My sole concern is that there is no way to cross-draw and present on target without sweeping whatever is in front of you. That's something I find myself extremely...

    NRA Women ~ 'To open carry or not to open carry' article

    Probably a good thing I hadn't yet read it. Don't plan to. I agree. "I don't open carry myself" means the credibility is nil. Of course, NRA has never supported open carry, so one should not expect any different.

    Issue while voting

    IANAL, nor am I intimately familiar with NC laws. I wonder if a case could be made based on "§ 14-277.2. Weapons at parades, etc., prohibited. (a) It shall be unlawful for any person participating in, affiliated with, or present as a spectator at any parade, funeral procession, picket...

    Hope everyone has seen the plans to thwart the gathering limits and the carry restrictions, while still carrying our message to Richmond on Lobby Day. Follow rolling4the2A.com for details.

    VCDL and PVC in the news

    They have an organizational structure that refuses to delegate, or to recognize and seek newly developing skills. The webmaster, bless his heart, is the webmaster despite the fact there are dozens in the organization who have design and web skills. The Board is reluctant to adopt anything it...

    Farewell to a Dear Friend... Kevin Kilcoyne (zoom6zoom)

    Bob, it's only chance I happened on this post; I seldom read this section. I knew Kevin, though not well, and am dismayed by this news. I knew he was diabetic, but not the extent of the disease. THANK YOU for this notification. I am very sorry to hear this. Please accept our condolences for...

    Lobby Day 2020: The Don "Peter Nap" Litton Memorial Latrine

    To be completely accurate, VCDL was initially told by Richmond PD that we'd need 15. VCDL paid for those. Soon, a member realized that was NOT enough. He paid for more, and convinced another donor to pay for more. THEY chose to place the signs requesting donations. I hadn't seen or known...

    Checking in

    Good to see you check in! I've missed you. Yeah ... Would not surprise me to see a 1000-person Lobby Day agin. Too bad it happens *after* bad things, not before.

    November 2nd (DC Rally) GUN OWNERS ARE GOING TO DC at the DC front lawn.

    Beautiful weather, good crowd (2000-3000)). I talked to folks from MA, VT, CT, NJ, NY, PA, MD, DC, VA, NC, CO, IL, TX, FL, CA. Connecticut Citizens Defense League charted a bus. Dynamic speakers, all open to individual discussions, shaking hands, etc. Gabby Franco sought me out for a picture...

    DC 2A Rally

    I will probably attend, at least for a while. Those of us who stay home and say "Well, not enough people will attend" contribute, IMNSHO. Plus, in over 60 years, I've never attended a protest in DC. I guess I should do that once before I leave the area.

    A thought after you have used your SD firearm to defend yourself/loved ones...

    This response admits you fired the shots. Even that might be wiser left unsaid until your attorney is present. Call 911. Request ambulance and police. Render aid if safe and you know what you're doing. Call your attorney.

    Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority

    Interesting. Our Community Service Boards are county agencies, but, I believe, state governed. Guess I have more research to do.
