Phoenix Open Carry Dinner

Post by Rumpshot » Wed Jul 22, 2009 7:25 pm

As noted on another post, Rod, with his lovely wife & I, along with my lovely wife will be attending the Sean Hannity Freedom Concert in Phoenix on 9 August. Rod will be driving to Phoenix on Saturday the 8th. We will be having dinner together that evening.

This will be The Gun Counter Open Carry Dinner. The location: Golden Corral Buffet & Grill, 7609 W. Thomas, Phoenix, AZ. The date/time is: 8 August, 2009 at 6 PM. The object: Public Open Display of legally owned and carried firearms. You are cordially invited to join us for dinner and to tastefully and legally display your "bar-b-que" rig.

I spoke with the manager, Mr Jeff Chapman, this morning and he is quite happy to provide the location for this dinner.

From I-10 and 75th Ave, travel North to Thomas, turn left on Thomas. Golden Corral will be on your left. The shopping center has seen much better days and is locally known as "The Hood Mall". That is not a complimentary nickname, it reflects the character. The character is not your friendly local neighborhood mall. Open Carry or Concealed Carry are both appropriate in this area. The Golden Corral is set apart from the mall and does not reflect the character of the mall.

Sounds like the PERFECT place to do this then. Let the "hoodies" know not all of us are victims. Good job Rumpshot, you get the no-prize for your work. I'll have it at the dinner. Rudy and I will be there, now which gun? Decisions, decisions....

Well, to be fair to the mall that you speak of, the whole area that the mall is located in is a dump...and has been for some time. I'm guessing this is just a little bit west of Maryvale...it's been some time since I've been over there...for obvious reasons. I'll be there for the meet, but I wouldn't go to that neighborhood unarmed ever! :lol:

I think the Merwin-Hulbert would be the obvious choice...

Food, friends, firearms and Phoenix?
Dang it!

Virginia and I will be in Oregon visiting relatives that week-end.
Oh, well, all the more reason to make Rumpshot's Revenge this year.

I have it scheduled--But as usual obstacles keep getting in the way--
Boss (Wifie) has Doctors appt. in Flagstaff that week , and she was called for Jury duty in Yuma for the same time. I am gonna try and sneak away for some shopping that weekend.Then this morning I get an E mail from one of our closest friends that his heart surgery has been cancelled due to other complications that he has, and now a new round of procedures and tests are scheduled to extend for the next several weeks---He has no family and I am named "next of kin" --- so I may be back and forth to San Diego for a few weeks. I guess the airplane may get a work-out.

Given the character of the mall and the fact that it's Arizona there can only be one answer: All Of Them!

Given the date and time I should be able to make it. See you all there.
