Anyone who supports the RKBAs is a welcome guest.

FYI -- It is legal to carry at a local park in Virginia -- Open or (with a recognized permit) Concealed .

VCDL does not take a position on Open vs. Concealed carry -- or even care if you attend our events w/o carrying. Your call.

However, safety mishaps, particularly with firearms, expose the organization to liability issues and could significantly damage VCDL.s credibility as a gun rights organization. At all events, the rules and requirements of the sponsor/promoter shall be strictly observed.

Therefore, whenever the sponsor/promoter permits loaded firearms, and at all VCDL-sponsored meetings, events, or gatherings, at non-range sites, loaded firearms shall NOT be handled; they will remain holstered or otherwise secured at all times.

VCDL Meeting, Thursday, October 6th, 2011 in Charlottesville!

Our next meeting in Charlottesville will again be at the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club. RRPC has been a gracious host and we appreciate their continued hospitality!

Our own Executive Member and firearms attorney Mark Matthews will be our guest of honor. The topic this meeting will be Revocable Trusts for the purpose of owning NFA items. There are many advantages to setting up these trusts and Mr. Matthews has offered to demystify the process.

This should prove to be a very interesting meeting. We sincerely hope that you can join us. As always, you do not need to be a member of VCDL or RRPC to attend; in fact, we encourage you to bring your friends and neighbors. For those of you living in the area who are not members of RRPC this is an excellent opportunity for you to check out a very nice range. RRPC has been a valuable asset to the shooting sports community for many years and is very active in firearms education and safety.

We will begin at 6:30 PM with a pot luck dinner; the main course of corned beef and cabbage will be provided, as will beverages. Please bring a dish if you are able. If you can't bring something to share, please don't let that stop you from attending. We always have plenty! For food planning purposes, RSVP to

and include the number *eating dinner* in the subject line (example: 10/6 VCDL meeting, 2 for dinner).

Meeting will follow the dinner, probably around 7:30 PM, and we should be done by 9:00 PM.
