    WHO needs a gun in a Post Office?

    Gee... It sure is GREAT to be disarmed in a nice, safe, GUN-FREE Criminal-safe zone, isn't it? I know Postal Inspectors are authorized to be "armed in the performance of their duties", but has anyone ever met one or even SEEN a Postal Inspector? I sure haven't! I've never seen any kind of...

    Carrying inside buildings in Yorktown

    I was asked not to carry inside one of the buildings in Yorktown. I was told by the manager of that building that carrying there was tantamount to carrying in a NPS building where government employees (like park rangers) also work. Are all buildings in the town of Yorktown owned by the U. S...

    ND: Man shoots self to death in Spotsy grocery store parking lot

    The only time I ever used a "flap" holster (I think it was called the M-82, but someone else can correct me there) was for the first few days I was in the Persian Gulf Gulf during Desert Storm. I didn't like it, but it did protect the M9 from "stuff" happening to it. For the folks that used...

    Harborfest 2011

    It was pretty disappointing. No "tall ships" this year... Just a few smaller schooners and "medium-sized" sailing ships. Nothing in the 200' + category. Gazela Primero ( I think they just call her Gazela now) is down from Philly. She's pretty old and still has a copper-sheathed bottom. Ran...

    OC/CC for cab drivers

    I went to the police dept. yesterday to apply for a Cab Driver’s Permit. When I entered the “police station”, I didn’t know if it was considered a “secure area” because I had to ring a bell to gain entrance and the door was opened by someone inside the office. I was CCing at the time. As a...

    Gloucester Daffodil Festival

    I saw a UNICORN! I was in the "Food Court" parking lot in "old town Gloucester" after the parade today with my kids and saw a young UNICORN! I asked him if he knew any other OCers and he said he didn't. I fished out about a half-dozen of ED'S Cards from my card holder and gave them to him and...

    Posting of signs - Could you be prosecuted for sticking a sign to the door?

    Could you be prosecuted for sticking a sign to the door of a business if it does no damage to the door? Has anyone posted a "defense free criminal zone" sign on the door of a business that doesn't allow firearms? It might be fun to do, but I wonder about the ramifications of such an action...

    Highly Vocal OCer that made tragic decisions is re-indicted

    Anyone remember the 'Anty 506' Story? He was an 18 year old Louisana OCer that "pushed the envelope" and seemed to go out of his way to challenge LEOs in his area. He was a very prolific poster to OCDO and his experiences were 'interesting'. I thought he had a chip on his shoulder and his...

    Warm Welcome

    I was wandering about the net yesterday and came across another forum that LOOKED like it may be like OCDO and have like-minded people posting there. I was wrong on both parts. I was as welcome as George Washington would be if he visited Congress today. Now I know how some new folks feel...

    I spent the day yesterday at Chancellorsville and Wilderness battlefields.

    Ed: I neglected to thank you for the OC CARDS. Your cards are very nice. At the risk of offending Jim, your cards are nicer than ours. I plan to send you a check on 1 JUL for a Challenge Coin and more cards. I gave half the ones you sent me to Bridget. She's already given all of hers out...
