Only in VA!
Today as I was at the gym (where obviously no one is CCing on their person while lifting) I overheard a discussion between a local LEO and another man about the best carry rounds in .45ACP. They mentioned Winchester Rangers but said they can be hard to find. Seeing as how all of my carry guns are loaded with Winchester Rangers, I threw my $.02 in about best pricing and where to get them.
This then mushroomed into 4 more guys joining the conversation to talk about their carry guns and choice of caliber....all of this huddled around the Hammer Strength Shoulder Press.
It turned out that 2 were LEO, 1 was a Local Fireman and the other 4 of us were just guys who like to feel safe. These LEOs were obviously cool with civilians choosing to carry, which I am glad to hear about my county officers.
I just thought it was funny (as a previous NJ resident) that people upon just hearing an ammo brand are willing to drop their sets and are psyched to chat about their carry weapons.

#2: Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice.
#10: Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

I was talking to a guy I knew at the gym for a few months. when guns came up. I pretty much gave up on working out and we talked about guns for an hour or so. its funny how the people you know casually you may have more in common with than you realize.

Same here except it is at church. Since I applied for my permit back on 01/01 I have found 8 other guys at church that carry and we have had some interesting conversations.
