    Knitting factory in Spokane

    I'm sure open carry wouldn't be allowed but has anyone been there recently? Do they wand or have metal detectors? Sent from my SM-G925T using Tapatalk

    Moving to Spokane!

    How is oc'ing in Spokane these days? I probably won't be able to much, I'm starting an IT consulting company and will keep things concealed for the most part. Does anyone know of OC friendly ranges? I think the one near the valley is no OC. Scott

    Information Requests - Every state with the laws (Stop saying FOIA requests...)

    I see a lot of people talk about FOIA requests. Unless you are asking a Federal Agency for public records FOIA does NOT apply. You should make the request under the state's open records law. Every state is a little different. I have worked with most of the housing agencies in all of the states...

    Snohomish County OC Report

    Well, today is the first time I really consider myself to have open carried. I open carry to the gun range, and once to the gas station. Tonight I went to Cabela's in Marysville and Five Guys in Smokey Point. Not a word was said, I didn't even notice getting any weird looks. It was a good first...

    Paddle holster ok?

    The more I've been on this site the more I have been thinking about open carrying more. I open carry to the range and once to the gas station. I've got a Safariland ALS holster that currently has the paddle attachment on it. Is this an OK setup or do I need to attach the belt loops? Scott
