Volunteers brush up on the current Bills before both the Senate and Assembly as well as the Committee actions.
Put together a spiel in your own words as far as how to go about contacting the lawmakers and the Governor in support or opposition to a Bill.

Might also go over the things Calguns has accomplished over its short lifespan and the birth of the Calguns Foundation and its success'.

One of the main objectives with these booths is to create a larger level of grassroots Activism whether the individual signs on to CGN or not. The information on this site is still available to all. Its the citizens of California that the lawmakers are compelled to listen to, not the lobbyist's.

Thank you to all who Volunteer for manning these booths. While its a good cause and fun, its also work. You'll probably hear the same questions over and over along with the same remarks. Its a real mixed bag of people out there. Don't forget to take a chill pill as needed.

Thanks again guys.

Vick

Guys, this will be my first time at this particular gun show. I am going there looking for inexpensive .357mag, 9mm, and GP11 (7.5 Swiss) ammo. Do most of the vendors take credit card or is it cash only? Also, is the ammo only sold in cases or can I buy them in 20/50rd boxes? Thanks.

I'll likely reprise my Sunday appearance unless someone tells me that it would be better for me to show up on Saturday.

This time I'm bringing my own show and tell item

Box of stuff sent out today, ought to be in Dublin Friday afternoon.

Included some 'Gun Show Shopping Bags' made of heavy canvas. I filled one up with ammo and could hardly lift it up. But I did and carried it around for a bit to test it. Anyone carrying that much ammo will no doubt have a hand truck.
It is a cavernous bag with reinforced outer bottom and heavy straps.

Let me know what you guys think of this bag. I purposely left any markings off it as to be more discrete. Also saving a few bucks by not embroidering our logo on it.

Fill it up with guns and jerky, get some pics.

Wait a minute. Her shirt was sent out direct from the printer, it should have been there.
Crap, I hate when this happens.
Searching now.

It was shipped from LA on 29Apr09, I think wildhawker has it in his shipment. Its already at the show.

Well, I'm not sure.
It was supposed to go to your address but I think the printer put it in the box sent to wildhawker to give to you at the show. I talked with Brandon and he indicated he had a shirt for you.
My assumption is that it is your Fiance's shirt since I sent you yours last week.

I expect it ought to have your name on it for when you arrive.

Please let me know either way.
Sorry about the mixup.

Thanks for op for volunteering!

Had a good time, and great meeting everyone!

Crowd was very receptive, no chill pills required!

And nagorp spit game so good he got an anonymous $300 donation!



It nice seeing the Cow Palace look more like a gun show again as well. A few of our vendors here are there in force, so if you are wavering - bight the bullet and go and say hi!


Oh - worry about catching BRD! Some amazing stuff out there. And saw a bunch of OLLs!!! Some nice Thomsons, most everything BRD fix you could think of!

Default My Cow Palace CG volunteer report.

What a day!

I needed to pick up ammo, and planning ahead I arrived at a time I considered to be "early."

Many others had the same idea and I found myself at the end of a long line for tickets, then at the end of a long line for entrance.

Got in, went directly to Miwall with a crowd that looked more like the race for westward expansion than a gunshow crowd, and proceeded to go through a one and a half hour scrum to get to the table, and then wait for the overworked Miwall worker to take and fill my order. Yikes! what an ordeal.

Went by the CGF booth to say hello, exited to take my ammo back to my office, and the line for tickets and entry was just as long as it had been at 8:00am.

Returned to the show for my volunteer shift, and just had a ball w/ DDT, DocSkinner, and BWiese. Got to meet Oaklander, and really enjoyed meeting all the Calgunners that took the time to stop by the booth and introduced themselves. What a cast of characters Calguns brings together!

Managed to keep descretionary funds in my pocket seeing an Enfield Jungle carbine walk by w/ a "For Sale" sign. Must.Stay.Strong.

Really looking forward to the June San Jose show, and I'm looking forward to more Calgunners coming out to introduce themselves and contribute to our community - everybody has something to contribute in our fight for our Second Amedment Rights, and the Calguns Foundation is one of the best vehicles for us to assert those rights.
