Shooting Trip 9-30-08

Well, it isn't open carrying but I got to practice a bit. My friend John is going away to gunsmithing school in Colorado for 14 months and we had a small shooting trip get-together with my friend Chris, John's dad and myself up at our favorite place in the hills of Hemet.

My highlights for the day are that I hit a 2.5'x1.5' piece of metal in the shape of a spade at 75yds with my Makarov AND my MKII! I am so stoked that I am not a complete failure with my handguns! Of course, I need to practice more with the Tracker using .44spl ammunition but I am ever hopeful!

Here are some pictures.

Another Vons trip

Oh, what a busy day! On my way back from visiting a friend I had my other friend call me and tell me that he is spending the night tonight. Knowing that dinner will not be complete without some additional food, I headed over to the Vons and picked up some London Broil on sale. The Tracker accompanied me and I had no problems.

Seems that the general populace is not really worried about guns. I love it!

San Diego Credit Union and Union Bank

So today I felt a little frisky and decided to open carry at not one but TWO banks.

At bank number one, San Diego County Credit Union, I had to help my friend out with a car payment (kind of a dork.) I had one guy behind me looking at the Tracker like a 5 year old in a candy store but other than that there were no problems.

At bank number two, Union Bank, I had to activate my debit card and make a large deposit. No one really noticed and if they did they didn't make it known. There was one unarmed security guy that eyeballed me but made no attempt to confront me and even gave me a general "hey, whats up?" nod. After the teller and I finished counting out the change and the inordinate amount of one dollar bills (told her I was a stripper in Mexico ;) ) I left and went home.

Now, I am off to go see a friend and try to find some glove oil, for Tracker's holster needs a little bit of TLC. :)

Shopping at Vons

So I had a church function to go to today and the requirement was to bring something to drink or eat, like soda or chips. Feeling my usual adventurous streak, I went out to the local Vons and busted out the Tracker. Oh, the joyous feeling of my companion at my side after such a long respite!

OK, enough of that :)

I was inside of Vons for approximately 20 minutes and no one raised any objections. After settling on 8 specialty sodas and going to the checkout, an employee looked over and asked how I was and I responded with the usual "Just peachy, how are you?" All in all, very cordial.

Same thing on the way out.

Didn't carry at the church function since it was at a park and youth leaders aren't allowed to be armed or something like that (haven't objected to me packin' steel though, though I would probably ignore them if they did anyways!)

That's all I got for now. I can't wait for the open carry lunch on Oct 19th!

Open Carry Lunch!

You might have seen this on calguns.net but I am gonna post it here to get the word out!

When: Oct 19, 2008, 11am-12pm
Where: El Indio Restaraunt. 3695 India St, San Diego, CA 92103
What to bring: A smile on your face, cash in your pocket and a gun at your side!

As usual, no bringing guns out of their holsters to show your eager participants and no clothing or holster rigs that could be considered concealing. Lets play by the book and protest the lack of CCW issuance in SD county and California overall!

Your brother in arms,

Sorry for the lack of stories.

Sorry guys for the lack of stories, but Tracker is on loan with a friend at the moment and so I cannot open carry quite like I should and the magazine pouches for Mak are not right so I have to send them back. I shall be getting Tracker from him in short order though!
