It's been a few months since our last organized ride
so we in the International Association of Armed Librarians • Mobile Assault Force (IAAL*MAF) are figuring it's high time to get another one in our occasional series of public spinvitationals out there on the open road -- and this time we're getting back to our roots.
The Scoot 'N Shoot Ride is scheduled for August 21 at 8 p.m. Join us for a downtown ride (Scoot) followed by a visit to the Los Angeles Gun Club (Shoot).
Ride info is here
Yay. Been waiting for this a long time.

will anyone be using their own firearms?
I'd like to bring my own

Is this really happening? Do guns and bikes mix?
Three degrees of linking?
Guns go with beer Beer goes with bikes. Hence, guns go with bikes?
Maybe I missed another way to relate the two together, but I'd like to think not.

can someone act as my gaurdian, i'm 17 but I've been there before and know how to shoot guns.

We'd strongly prefer -- in fact we shall insist that any participants NOT be carrying during the ride itself. Pretty much sure that's illegal anyway. And maybe it goes without saying but I'll say it anyway: any gun transported must be done so unloaded and n some sort of case.
Sorry, but if you are underage and you're interested in shooting you will need to bring your own legal guardian. Vouching for fellow riders will be discouraged. And probably won't be tolerated by the fine folks at L.A. Gun Club.
There are weapons for rent at the L.A. Gun Club, but if you are planning on bringing your own, a couple options come to mind:
1) You could drive one of them motorized vehicles to the start and secure your weapon in your vehicle during the ride.
2) You can attempt to gain the favor of IAAL co-founder Michael who lives where the ride will be gathering and departing downstreet from the L.A. Gun Club and get his permission to store your weapon at his place, but it goes without saying that he totally reserves the right to say hell no.
3) You can attempt to check-in and store your weapon with the L.A. Gun Club while we go on the ride, but that's between you and L.A. Gun Club.

this ride is all kinds of wrong. but I will be rollin most likely...
08.7.08 - 6:43 pm
P.S. I found one last remaining "Street Legal" tee
that I will be giving away to the participant deemed most deserving, based on a criteria which will look at friendliness, gun responsibility, target accuracy and ability to purchase me a drink at Seven Grand later that eveninganing.
Plus I may have some $0.00 0/10 stickers to give away. Who knows!
08.7.08 - 7:08 pm
I want to ride.
I want to shoot.
08.7.08 - 7:30 pm
i am so happy for the SCOOT and SHOOT!
At last I will be both a LIBRARIAN and ARMED.
Justice will at long last, be mine.
08.7.08 - 8:55 pm
wooo! I'm scared of myself on a bike! But guns I can totally handle!
08.7.08 - 8:58 pm
The IAAL was a gun club before we got bikes and added the MAF
08.7.08 - 11:31 pm
Will, I will be bringing mine in a locked case. Do i just ask Michael at that time about leaving it in his place and if denied, then figure out the 2 other alternatives? I don't know him, so i can't make that arrangement ahead of time.
08.8.08 - 1:24 am
Stevo, Since it was largely you're asking me about when the iaal•maf was doing a ride like this that got the wheels spinning I'm pretty sure Michael will store your weapon, but just to be sure I'll ask him and let you know.
08.8.08 - 4:54 am
Is the IAAL-MAF going to be inspecting our bags? If not, (and I'm just sayin' - not that I'd plan to do this) would there be any issue of having your toys in a locked container in your backpack during a ride?
08.8.08 - 11:41 am
NT, Pretty much the last thing I want to do is be all Homeland Security/TSA and demand an inspection to ensure compliance. Oooo, how much fun would THAT be, huh!?
And while I can't speak for the rest of the iaal•maf you can rest assured that the last place I want to put my hands is in your bag.
So with that, if you plan on disregarding any of the viable storage alternatives suggested and pack your weapon on the ride in disregard of the request that you don't, well isn't that just special?
08.8.08 - 2:50 pm
Minor correction, but it was Michael's lady friend who didn't like guns hence the "library" thing. But anyway..
As for transport - CA law is VERY clear about transporting firearms to and from gun ranges. Point A to B only. No point A to C via point B. If you are stopped by the police and they find a firearm on you, at the very least they will confiscate it and take you in for the misdemeanor crime of illegally carrying a concealed weapon. That's assuming all your other ducks are in a row, if they aren't it'll be much worse.
That said - I'm not inspecting shit and if you don't care about the law keep that to yourself. Don't ask don't tell. You know it's illegal, but people knowingly do illegal stuff all the time, weight out the risks yourself but our official stance is don't bring a gun on the ride.

I shall fix the historical inaccuracy immediately, Sean!
08.8.08 - 3:35 pm
Yes! This sounds awesome! My girlfriend wants to come too...
08.17.08 - 6:13 pm
I don't own any guns but I want to be searched anyway.
08.18.08 - 6:49 pm
Damn I want to go on this just to collect that spoke card! Awesome card, whoever did it. Sadly I don't think I'll be able to make it. BTW, I read that whole freakin page on the right--->
Don't ask me why.
08.20.08 - 9:34 pm
Thanks Alan. The card maker would be me with Rollers providing his laminator mastery. Sorry you can't make it. We'll probably have some left over so I'll save ya one just for posterity's sake.
08.21.08 - 12:15 am
My bike is in the shop and was supposed to be done but it's not.
Can I meet you at the LA Gun Club -- when will you be there?
08.21.08 - 9:14 am
mk, I'd guess if we get an 8- 815 p.m. start, we should be back at the gun club by 9:30-9:45 p.m.
08.21.08 - 10:27 am
I can make this ride!
I can haz the spoke card without looking like a snake!
Not sure about the guns stuff, not really my thing. But will see everyone tonite.
08.21.08 - 3:42 pm
This would be the guaranteed CRIME-FREE ride
08.21.08 - 4:59 pm
I'm actually thinking of a refurbished, Remington 870 for the sake of personal, home-defense use.
thnx for the idea sexy.
