So my friends and I went this morning to meet up with some Calgunners for a shooting trip up in Valley Center and we had a lot of fun. Unfortunately, we didn't get to shoot as long at the longer distances that we wanted since the fog was so bad but we still did a decent amount of shooting regardless. Our group burned through about 1000 rounds of .22LR and I tried out my brother's BHP to see if I want to make an offer on it (I'm leaning towards it, but I just found a broken part in the gun when stripping it so I am now wondering... :( )
After shooting for 4 hours or so, we all decided to go down the mountain to Jilberto's for some Mexican food. As usual, I was open carrying and I hoped all the other guys would do it too but only Mario (USNChief) passed muster and joined me. No issues while there, though I did get the usual looks and such.
Good shooting trip fellow Calgunners! When the weather smiles with greater favor upon us, we shall have to do it again.
ETA: Right after the last of our shooting group left, the Sheriff showed up! We think that someone called the cops on us (meaning myself and possibly USNChief) because we were open carrying... LAME! Here is how I imagine the initial phone call to the cops...
"Umm, yeah, there is a guy here with a gun on his hip and he is ordering a burrito"
"Yeah, he is ordering it with extra carne asada. We don't know what to do!"
"We're so scared, he is sitting down and eating it! Holy crap, the gun isn't going off like an automated killing machine!"
I would love to call the station up there and ask them why they came out. I heard a few of the punks out there make mention of my gun as I came in and as they left but that was it.
