    I usually carry when I leave home and definitely when traveling out of town.

    I have my G27 with me at all times, with the exception of Federal facilities (unfortunate that our government restricts the carry of legal and licensed weapons on their facilities after the recent incident).

    Dittoes. I do the same.

    High Crime Area?

    For the 28 that answered they carry when going to a high crime area I have this question: If you know it's a high crime area, why don't you avoid it?

    The only reason I go into known high crime areas is when business forces me to do so. Otherwise I stay out of those areas. Of course I answered that I always carry, even at home. Because I do whenever it's legal.

    My home is not in a high crime area, but crime has this nasty tendency to not obey geographic boundaries. A few years ago there was a high school tiff that eventually resulted in a teen-ager deciding to stop in front of my house and take a shot at the neighbor down the street. Needless to say that got my attention.

  8. Good point Dan! If it is a place I would be afraid to to without my gun, I would not go there period, gun or no. I carry everywhere it is legal.

  9. I carry all the time. I have to remember to leave it in the car at the Post office. Luckily, I can carry at work. If I am dressed, I am armed.

    I agree 100%. The only time I don't carry is to and from work. I work at a Prison and no weapons allowed on property.

    That is a good point. Why would a criminal, who lives in a crappy part of town, steal from others like him when they don't have any more than he does? Lots of times people who live in good areas or in the country, let their guard down. Big mistake. If I were a criminal, I would go to the places where I think it would be worth getting into trouble for. One or more of my handguns are with me ALL THE TIME. I would rather go thru my whole life carrying a gun and never needing it, than to have that on time that I need it and don't have it.
