    Yes, I have heard that the LCPII is a clear improvement over the LCP "I" so if I were going to get a LCP presently, it'd be the II over a new/used "I" model.

    My .380ACP BUG is a Sig-Sauer P238.

    tC_Matt,

    Yes, it's a bit of a drive, but it's not until Sunday so you COULD make it, yes? Heck, Google Earth says "it's only 598 miles @ 8hours & 51 minutes." ;-)

    But really, tell me about long drives: When I lived in Galveston (2008-2013), I'd make yearly "Christmas trips" back to El Paso and ABQ to visit friends & family. Yes, a VERY long (and often boring scenery-wise) round trip.

    Did the same when I lived in Colorado Springs, CO, and that trip was not whole lot shorter mileage-wise.


    Seriously though: Why not look into having "CC Get-Togethers" in YOUR location? You don't HAVE to do OC events, and there's no reason people who exclusively CC can't get a regular (monthly?) get-together going.

    Besides, hardly anyone OCs anyway (something I AM trying to change) but there should be lots of CCers around in Taylor who could attend your events (or CCers here in ELP) if they want to.

    I encourage every member of Texas Gun Talk to think about being the "activist" (vs. doing nothing) and get SOME sort of get-together -- preferably on a regular basis -- wherever they live. IMO, we need to be more engaged in "the cause" (pro-gun agenda/RKBA/2nd Amendment/Self-Defense issues) and it helps if you don't feel like you're all alone/Lone Wolf doing it. Too many "gun-owners" (besides the fact that most "gun-owners" are liberals) do absolutely nothing except read/post in forums (if even THAT much).

    DOING something locally, ANYTHING, would be a major improvement -- and would help ALL of us "gun people" collectively.

    Regards,

    "We" have the location info: Village Inn (Montana & Airways).

    As already stated, it's this coming Sunday @ 2:00pm...and despite the "serious" winds the weather people are predicting for the weekend.

    kirk10100,

    Sorry you can't make this one. As for the next one, I can't now say there will or won't be a "next one" as it depends on how this one goes. ;-)

    Later then,
