Thread: How often do you carry?

  1. Always in my pocket (front right) when I leave the house. In the house I usually keep it in my pocket when I am home and the front door is open (screen locked). When I'm home and locked in, then it's usually on a table near me. I don't worry so much at home where I live. Some of this may depend on where people reside.

    Unfortunately I cannot carry most of the time. I have an office job in a work place that prohibits guns within the building. I don't like the idea of leaving my sidearm in the car during the day. I also have kids involved in alot of school activites and carrying on school property being a big no no keeps from doing so. So about the only time I carry is at home, when we go shopping and general out and about banging around.

    I carry ALL THE TIME,EVERYWHERE,NO MATTER WHAT.
    Even if a job says you can't,what they don't know,can't hurt them.
    The worse thing that could happen,is you loose your job,but not your life.
    How many times have you heard of a disgruntled employee shooting everyone???

  5. 24-7 except when in bed (then it's close by), or in restricted bldgs. (no, I don't agree with gun free zones.......really free fire zones for criminals....,but I do try to obey the laws, and work to change foolish ones).

    The answer to the question about "Ossama's" efforts to ban conceald carry are, likely obvious; but maybe we should not put them in writing just now??

    Take care.

  6. Stealth carry

    Like many here, My employer does not allow carying in the bldg, parking garage, etc. Since I take a bus, leaving it in my car is useless, so more often than not, it's in my carry bag along with my Bible, papers, etc.
    The word concealed means just that. The only time it would come out of the bag would be to save my life, or another's, other than that it's out of sight.

    I understand folks' reluctance to write openly about carry decisions in the face of an eventual government crack down, which I believe is imminent. However, there comes a time to stand up and be counted. I believe that time is upon us. I mean, we now live in a country where what we THINK can subject us to criminal and civil litigation (hate crimes) and where we have a ruling aristocracy (Dems & Repubs alike), who do not live by the same laws that they impose on the rest of us. (Don't even get me started about the trillion dollar Porkulus bill.)
    The basis of the 2nd Amendment is that we are armed in order to fight an oppressive government. Sounds harsh, but there it is.

    For the record, 99.99% of the time, I carry legally. However, I have carried (or at least had a weapon close by) all my life, legal and otherwise. My concern is that a lot of folks are "giddy" about having a CCW permit, think it's cool to carry, as long as the gov't says it's ok. Personally, "from my cold dead fingers" is the creed I follow and I don't give a rat's ass what the gov't says. Live free or die.

    I carry whenever I set foot out of the house. If there is a place that won't let me carry, be it open or otherwise, then I don't frequent those places.

    I'm glad you said that. I can't recall if it was something I read recently, or why you just reminded me of it, but didn't there used to be something called a "Poll Tax" which was created to keep minorities who couldn't afford it away from the polls? And wasn't it found unconstitutional to make people PAY to exercise a constitutional right?

    So how do they get off charging us for gun permits?
    You can run... but you'll just die tired. 3%
