    The local branch of the Fraternal Order of Police just had their annual Gun Bash(gun show/fundraiser). They raffled off over 30 or so guns. Probably not something you see in NYC.

    Wouldn't have it any other way...

    Well, a little MORE freedom wouldn't hurt I suppose.

    Hey, take it easy on PA. I love it here. Our gun clubs, as far as I know, avoid getting entangled with corporate events except for businesses in the firerms industry.

    The South has always been easier going when it comes to guns.

    With everyone being related down there, secrets are hard to keep. Everyone already knows everyone else packs. :-)

    Hey, I'm from PA myself. Bottom line, PA is WAY more 2A friendly than those states behind enemy lines but I never saw anything like a utility holding a business meeting at the local HIGH end gun club with a tour and freebies when I was living in Montgomery County, PA. Just sayin'. ;)

    We had a SWAT officer killed in the line of duty about 2 years ago and the company I work for partnered with that police department to do a fund raiser at a local range.
    Got to shoot in competition with SWAT officers. Also held a raffle to win a gun.
    I won a brand new Sig 1911 Tacops .45.
    I would say we are pretty gun friendly down here.

    I took my Utah CCW class at the county visitor's center. I went to a meeting of the local Friends of the NRA at the town library. Neither of those things would have happened in California where we lived previously.

    Well, you are in the Lone Star State after all. Very nice that they did that for his family. Wish we saw more of that sort of thing all across the US.

    Correct, things are different in the south. Things are behind the times, the people are rude, taxes are higher and the weather sucks. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason for anyone from the Left coast or up north to go down there. You will hate it!! I can't wait to move to Jursey, Illannoying or Kalifornication!!!!

    Don't forget to tell them that the food sucks, too!

    They sure wouldn't want to have to subject themselves to NC-style BBQ, or the seafood from along the coast. That would be almost as bad as the authentic Cajun food if they came down here! We owe it to them to warn them not to come South!!!
