The Alan Gura Chair

Last night we had a gathering of Bloggers from the MD-DC-VA area. Unknown to most at time of invite was the fact that Alan Gura had also accepted my invitation to attend. Alan is an amazing person, well-versed in his field, and a stalwart advocate for our civil rights. He is a genuinely nice man, to boot.

Now, my wife was attending this gathering as well. And, while not a "gunnie" in the traditional sense, she tolerates my passion and supports our position. She was mildly amused about the way the introductions went:
Hi, over here we have CJRMultigun, SID, Andy from 'Bus Error', Alan Gura, ....(GASP!!!!!!)....., The Miller, T-Bolt...
It was almost comical at times. Anyway, she was amused enough about it to memorialize the event in photo. With all the reverence I can muster then, I give you the spot where he sat...Seen below, I present to you The Alan Gura Chair:

Sorry I wasn't able to make it. Traffic coming down from Fort Lee plumb wore me out. Hopefully, next time.

LOL I think it's wonderful/exciting/scary to finally meet those who I've known online for years!
