Terry: Sure, newbies are invited. You have to start somewhere with your gun knowledge and carry practices.
We'll give you the answers, most of which will be correct, some will be opinions. :-)

Please let me know during the week if you plan to attend next Saturday's breakfast because the restaurant is small and I'll need to reserve the right number of seats. Likewise, if you say you'll come but change your mind, please let me know that too so we don't reserve seats the owners could sell to others.

Showing consideration this way will give us an ongoing welcome at a very fine place to meet.

Weather permitting I plan on riding out for this one. It’s over an hour ride for me. 40+mpg on the bike versus 14 in the truck, weather will determine if I’m there or not.

I’ll chime in Friday night if that’s not too late.

Just wish some of the eastern folks like to meet and eat also, like east of Dallas...
I'd be interested in that. :fire

That'll be fine. I hope you can make it!

I found a new open carry friendly breakfast cafe for our western division meetings:

Manny's Cafe
4019 Fort Worth Hwy
Hudson Oaks, TX 76087

It's a small cafe located in the David's Stove Shop building on the north side of westbound I20 at Mikus Road. There is minimal signage for the cafe, so look for David's Stove Shop which is easy to spot. The cafe entrance faces the road near the west end of the building by the windmill displays. (It can also be reached by going through the main stove shop entrance when that opens at 9 AM.) The cafe opens at 7:00. Staff advised they would be glad to have us and open carry is not an issue with them. It's also a bit closer for the folks coming from the main DFW area.

From I20 west, take Exit 415. It is just past the first traffic light (Mikus Road) on the right.

From I20 east, take Exit 415 and make a left at the light at Mikus Road, go under the highway, and turn left onto the westbound service road.

Our next west division breakfast is scheduled for June 15. Would you folks like to give this location a try?
Well heck I’m about 3 minutes away from David’s, guess I’ll see everyone there again.

Also saw the new Rudy’s going in at 1187 in Burleson. We just need one out here west now.

Here's a refresh on the directions:

Manny's Cafe
4019 Fort Worth Hwy
Hudson Oaks, TX 76087

Since it is a small place, you don’t think there will be any issue if we hang and talk for while do you?
