    Thank you Pro for some wise comments. This forum and others has been thru the alcohol/firearm debate many times with many replies. IMO, it is the same argument that people give for drinking and driving. Whatever the argument for saying that alcohol and firearms or alcohol and driving can be managed--it is fallacious at best and irresponsible at worst. You drink over the 08 or whatever standard you want to use or say is creditable, you deserve the severest of penalties. If you injure or kill someone with with either item of choice, be it a firearm or a car--it is manslaughter at best and murder at worst. Even if you can show SD with a firearm, you are still breaking the law and deserve penalty-both legal and civil. Don't agree fine--just do not be in front of a jury with me on it. Just sayin.

    Damn are you sensitive! I wonder why.
    Don't think I read your post where you said that you carry and have a beer or two when you go out.
    I was referring to the others that gave reasons with thoughtful logic as to why they do not drink and carry.
    Do I have to go into detail as in my previous posts where I said .."how would you like to leave a restaurant after having a couple of beers and then had to defend yourself or family and be in court where the waitress or waitperson is on the stand saying that they did serve your table and remembers that they served you at least two alcoholic drinks"!
    I don't know if you have your head on straight. I'll let you decide that. Others will have their thoughts about you no matter what you say.
    PERCEPTION is after all the domain of others! You know, like the jury deciding your fate as your waitress testifies!

    I can't on that matter, but you can expect kelcarry to growl at you.

    Quit 15 years ago. I had one half of one beer since then. (Teenagers will drive you to it!) Several alcoholics were in my family. I was blessed enough NOT to be one of them and walk away under my own power. Like someone else noted earlier, WERE in my family. They are all gone except an uncle.
    I carry a gun. I don't drink.

    Did you note the recent case in Florida that was found "not guilty" of killing her child? They "didn't have enough evidence" to convict her. Do you think one witness who saw you have a couple of beers would be enough to put you away? I'm not taking a chance. Too many liberal courts would love to hang a "gun carrying, fly-over country, bible toting, conservative." After all, that's all we have is our "Guns and our religion." Right? You do what you want to.

    I don't drink enough to warrant even calling it drinking. I have a CDL so drinking when going to be in a vehicle at all......NEVER. Drinking when going to be carrying a gun AND in a vehicle. Never ++++++!!!! Now, doing yard work, mowing, trimming, edging, raking, trimming rose bushes, etc etc.......I find NOTHING better than an ice cold beer. But that is where the line is drawn.

    I was just reading this article about 25 Signs You've Grown Up. #22. "I just can't drink the way I used to," replaces, "I'm never going to drink that much again." and then #24. You no longer drink at home to save money before going to a bar. I thought those were cute...none applies to me so perhaps I still have the child in me. NOT!

    I made my decision long before I recieved either of my carry permits. I will only drink at home. No matter what the activity, I will be sober. I will drive and I will be armed. It is a VERY small price to pay to keep my family safe. Don't get me wrong. I love throwing back a cold one just like the next guy. I feel there are much more important things, however.

    Hey G, if someone goes over 08 or whatever standard you want to use that is creditable (that is not beer or two or a glass of wine, but a fairly decent imbibation) I sure has heck will growl. Like I said, be a defendant judged by a jury that I am on and I will not think twice about finding you guilty of whatever. If it is in SD, you are still guilty of breaking the law and you will pay dearly, either legal or civil. GRRRRRRRRR!!!!
