Where is everybody? This sub-forum has gone fallow - last post was 9/17/17.

Surely there are people OCing there. Reports whether positive or negative add to the knowledge base and point people in the right direction, indicate what action/response would be most beneficial.

There are many of us who open carry here. I don't want to be seen as bashing any gun rights group, but I will tell you that the actions of some of those groups, especially with their cooperation with the Alabama Sheriffs' Association, has left a sour taste in a lot of mouths.

The ASA is more of a PAC than it is a law enforcement organization. Any elected official, and especially our legislators, who go against the ASA can forget re-election. That is a fact and is the major reason a pistol permit is still required to carry in your car or on a two-wheeled vehicle.

Again, I am not bashing, but attempting to shed some light on why there is so little activity. If the mods see this as bashing, please remove it.
