Thread: CCW in the post office?

  1. CCW in the post office?

    Have any if you ever walks into your local post office and forgotten you were carrying? What are the risks here?

    I have gotten so used to carrying that a few times I didn't remember until I was out of the post office and back in my vehicle. Am I asking for trouble?

    Note, I live in a very gun-friendly, ccw-friendly county, if that helps.

    No one here is going to tell you, "Don't worry about it." It's a felony. Let us know how the "I forgot" defense works out for you. Also let us know how much help you get from the county, when you're arrested for a federal crime.

    Leave your gun at home when you go to the post office.

    Q) Have any if you ever walks into your local post office and forgotten you were carrying?
    A) Nope

    Q) What are the risks here?
    A) Your freedom and your right to carry are both at risk.

    Q) I have gotten so used to carrying that a few times I didn't remember until I was out of the post office and back in my vehicle. Am I asking for trouble?
    A) Yes, you are asking & looking for trouble imvho.

    Note) I live in a very gun-friendly, ccw-friendly county, if that helps.
    Advice) The Fed's don't give a damn how 'gun-friendly' your county is, They would probably lock you up & take away your right to carry a firearm if they ever caught you doing this.

    P.s.
    Whatever you post on the world wide interweb's can easily be seen & tracked by both the Fed's & other LEO's.

    Carrying in a federal building is a VERY BAD idea.

    I do not carry in the Post Office as it is a felony.

    Dude if you want to carry in a post office or as you say you got so used to having your gun on you forgot, that's fine but you got to know it is illegal in every state in the union, and you should realize that if you did happen to carry inside a post office you must have a screw loose to post it on a open websight, or your just a troll and are trying to stir something up
    Bad Guys of the world beware the next time you think about jumping on a old guy, because its a fair bet he's to old to fight and probably to fat to run, but can put one in your eye at 50ft with his weak hand

    How do you forget that you're carrying? I have a very, very comfortable holster, but I'm still very aware of the fact that I am carrying... Anyone else have that happen? Is it just because I've only been at this since June?

    That's the right perspective to have. Subconsciously knowing its there at all times.

    Since I only carry my ankle BUG probably once or twice a month, I have on occasion found myself completely forgetting I strapped it on that day until I bump it on something. I find this to be a problem because what good does it do you if you don't know it's there when you need it. I have not however, ever accidentally walked into an off limits zone like a post office because I forgot I had a gun on me. I don't leave my bedroom, much less my house without at least one gun on me so that's not an issue.

  11. I appreciate the responses and I'm definitely no troll. I also realize the risks of posting openly about this online, but I was seeking meaningful discussion. When I say I forgot, I don't mean I don't know I'm carrying, but rather, I've gotten so used to the feel of my carry piece that it has become a natural extension. I feel something is missing when I don't have it so I tend to have it all the time when away from home.

    That said, I treasure this right and realize it's rather stupid to forget and carry it onto federal property. This thread will serve as a good warning to me to be more conscious of what building I'm walking into.

    Thanks for all the responses.
