    My parents and close friends know I carry, it doesn't bother me what so ever. I got stopped by the cops for OC which is legal here they checked me out and sent me on my way.

    It doesn't bother me if people know I carry, I just know that I will be protecting myself if the time calls for it. If they think I'm crazy for carrying they need to open their eyes to this world.

    Most people who know me know that I carry since I open carry as well as concealed. As long as the unexpected have no idea will be to my advantage and being in a wheel chair I need every equalizer I can get.

    The terrorist who killed George Tiller did so when he was attending church.

    Most of my co workers and certainly my friends know that I carry. But I only carry where it's legal so it's never been an issue yet.

    Because of this I assumed that they knew I carried.

    Well, during the conversation my friend mentioned that one of our praise team members who had been one of the people I’d mentioned didn’t know because he had asked her if she was aware and she had responded that she had no clue.

    The point to this story is that once you tell anyone you carry you have no control over who gets the information.

    I know some are going to say I should tell the guy to shut up but the fact is it’s too late and I don’t think he’d get it anyway. He’s a nice guy but he just doesn’t get it.

    There is another guy who carries that works at the church w/ my friend. This guy’s concealment is (to put it generously) minimal and the first time my friend noticed his gun he reach out and grabbed it and asked “is this what I think it is?” The friend doesn’t get that he crossed a huge line doing that so he certainly isn’t going to get the concept that concealed means we don’t talk about it to random church members
    I agree with that statement. And its not just with guns it can be anything. That why, with me any way, If I don't want something known I don't tell anyone. And I most certanly don't want it known that I carry a gun!!
    I will look towards the hills from whense cometh my help. All my help cometh from the Lord.

  8. In CT we can carry concealed in a church without permission. I often shoot with friends from church so a lot of people at church know that I have guns and that I carry. I dont advertise about carrying at church either. I do find the friendly hugging to be an issue so I carry in the appendix position. This way, no one will accidently touch it in the hug. I have found that I have to be carful if I'm shaking someone's hand and they initiate a hug while still shaking hands. You know, one of those single handed hugs that guys do. In this case, I raise their hand a little so it doesn't touch the butt of the gun. So far, even the people that I shoot with haven't noticed/asked. BTW, I carry a Ruger LC9 which conceals very well.

    This is a good subject for CCers to consider because social situations always exist where you have to be in touch with people and continue effective CCing. I have developed an appendix carry at 9:30 (I'm left-handed) and when I hug, I fully extend my right arm and embrace someone, but I only slightly extend my left hand to touch their waist, resting my elbow on the butt of my weapon. This prevents them searching me, lifting my weapon, anyone grabbing from behind, and me printing. This is the most effective way I found to handle this in public and in hundreds of hugs, only one person asked me if something was wrong with my left arm. "Pulled my shoulder playing racquetball" I replied convincingly and we talked sports injuries for 20 minutes. Just have a convincing excuse so you're not standing there going "uuhhh" when asked and you'll be fine!

    That appendix carry, is it very painful and are you planning on having it removed? Just kidding.

    JG, only if it ruptures! And if that happens, I probably won't care anymore. :P
