Default CGSSA 2014 Booth - Ventura Gun Show - Feb. 8 & 9 - Ventura

Ventura County Calgunners! It's time to edumacate and motivate our fellow Californians for the inevitable battle of 2014.
We need volunteers to staff the Calguns/CGSSA Booth. It's a great opportunity to connect with other Calgunners and shooting enthusiasts while doing you're part to support the 2A community and cause.

What: CGSSA Information booth
Where: Ventura County Fairgrounds, 10 W. Harbor Blvd, Ventura, CA 93001
When: Febuary 8th & 9th
Time: Saturday 8am - 5pm, Sunday 9am - 4pm
Show info: Crossroads of the West Gunshows - LINK to our last show in Dec.

If you can help please answer the following questions:
1) What day and shift? e.g. Sat. 8-1 (Shifts listed in next post)
2) Do you have a Calguns blue polo shirt?
a. If no, what size would you like? (Polos run pretty big, if in between sizes, I suggest going to the lower size)
3) Do you have previous Calguns booth experience?


Entrance into the show is FREE.
Calguns polo is $20 and is required to participate (optional teal t-shirt available for the ladies).

Two week countdown...

Could use a few more people, people. Ghost gun 30 caliber mag clips need some attention.

Confirmed. I will be there bright & early (send me a text with what time you'd like me to arrive).

I can bring my AR-15 for the rack. I can also bring a 10/22 and/or Scout rifle as well if we're short on guns.

One last gun show!

Excuse the late report, been burnt.

First off, big thank you to julie805, dtrump and saw'doffshorty for making the booth happen. Without these dedicated calgunners, it wouldn't have been possible to spread the word this weekend.

We kicked off our third consecutive Crossroads show info booth on Saturday. The weather was a bit gloomy but that didn't deter julie805, saw'doffshorty and myself from settin' up the booth.

We've changed table locations every show and this time got stuck on the very back wall of the last building! Oh well, both riflemen and Calgunners persist. Doors open at 9am and after people rush to the ammo tables, we see a light but steady stream of showgoers.

We put on our game faces and got down to business, letting people in the community know about our local events and encouraging them to get on the forums and participate in the discussions. The muddygirl camo 20ga got a lot of looks and some wily 'ol appleseeders got to check out Marlin's official Appleseed LTR.

Later in the day, dtrump rolled in with his custom painted AR. We showed him the ropes and he quickly started engaging showgoers like a pro.

Five o'clock rolls around and saw'doffshorty is pooped and hungry, so we head out to get some dinner and rest.

Sunday's a new day and the Lord's told us to rest but apparently Sacramento's gun grabbers didn't get the memo, so onward we go.

Checked in quickly with the NRA booth in the front and spoke with Mr. Morgan about Friends of NRA events. Bought a few raffle tickets and there must have been a mix up because they haven't notified me I've won yet.

Talked to hundreds of people this weekend and felt the show was a success, hopefully it equates to new Calgunners being engaged in the fight and coming out to our events.

Celebrity Calguns sightings throughout the weekend: gtturborex, imbroken, farfromtactical, uyoga, sabesimpson and many others that I can't manage to recall screen names. Buncha LA chapter members stopped to say Hi as well as lots of lurkers. Sign in already lurkers!

The highlight of the weekend for me happened outside of the show on Sunday evening. At the booth on Saturday, while speaking with sabesimpson about the highjacked .22 ammo situation, I mentioned I just got 2100 rounds to a guy taking 8+ youth out to Burro Canyon Appleseed and am going to facilitate more to the San Jose outreach program. He mentions his buddy has four brand new Christmas rifles that his five youngsters have yet to shoot. I exchange info with the gentleman and arranged to meet up Sunday after the show. So I meet with him, and what a thoughtful guy he is, he brought all the kids out to give thanks for the help. Beautiful family and the kids were thankful and excited to get the .22 and go shooting.

I was waxing poetic on the way home and I realized: "Getting those children that ammo took half an hour and we won't ever have to preach to them or defend against antigun bias, they'll just know better." Half an hour, mission complete! I spent well over twenty hours at/on the show and will be lucky to have half the results!

Until next time... which happens to be April 26-27, keep up the fight Ventura County.
