    Concealed Carry While Trick or Treating on Halloween?

    I was just trying to figure out what I'm going to be for Halloween. My wife and I are going to a friends house to hang out and do some trick or treating with their kid and the neighborhood kids. As I was thinking about the costume I also though, am I going to be carrying? Didn't take long to answer that with a Yes. I'll definitely get a costume now that'll still let me conceal my Glock 26 but also access it quickly. I could just throw a sheet on and cut some holes in it.

    Not me. Too many kids around, dark, unable to see what's behind the bad guy in case a round were to go through..
    I'm not willing to risk hitting a bystander and the environment is heavily biased in that direction. I'll rely on cqc if it comes to that on Halloween. If I didn't have that to fall back on for whatever reason, I might consider differently.

    That's just me though. Carry on. No pun intended =P

    Those of you who live in open carry-friendly states could just go as cowboys. That's the easiest way to pull it off without all the looks and stares from antis. Plus, accessibility isn't compromised.

    I like it! Too bad no open carry here in Florida.

  8. I do plan to take the kids trick or treating, walk around town and enjoy the decorations. And since I ALWAYS carry, I certainly will not leave it at home just because it's Halloween. Gonna have good flashlights, too.

    Naa! I'm too old to go Trick or Treating, and besides that, some kook with an AK-47 might jump out and shoot me, or be shot by me! Even at 68 I'm still pretty fast...

    Well, if your going to wear a big ol' sheet, then you might as well wear a big ol' gun too!
