I went to one a few years ago, back after TBJ had gotten established, and spoke to a few people there about what they were hoping to do using Guillory and the 14th A and asked if I could leave a flier and my "business card fliers" for their customers. I was met w/a slightly hostile reaction, which surprised me, given the uniformly positive reactions I got at other east bay gun stores.

I think I now know why: the owner, his brother, and his nephew were all among the "more worthy to be defended than thou" elite (i.e., they got theirs from Plummer/Ahern and didn't want anybody rocking the boat).

I was going to visit that shop again, but this time w/CGF materials. I've decided to wait until there is a public announcement by CGF that Alameda is "Time to Apply" status.

Never, ever, ever choose not to be an NRA member.
