Thread: Carrying and bowling

  1. #21
    Personally, I'm a little apprehensive about carrying during any extended physical activity wherein you are bending, stretching, throwing something. Just seems like there's too much of a chance of a mishap, like the weapon hitting the floor (which could be a bit dramatic at a kids bowling event). However, I always have a weapon nearby, one way or another. What about a small gym bag type deal, which holds your shoes, wallet and other assorted sundries, like your gun? You keep it close under your watchful eye and you have recourse if you should need it. I've done this on many occasions using my briefcase (or wife's purse) to conceal my firearm.

    May I make another suggestion? If concealment is your primary concern, then maybe bowling time is the time to carry a small gun (if you have one) in an ankle holster. At least that way you'll be concealed the entire time and not have to disarm.

    nOT MANY BOWLERS HERE ???? !!!!!!

    IF YOU EVER LEFT YOUR GUN IN A BOWLING BAG OF SOME SORT YOU WOULD BE LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE . You can not keep an eye on a gun while you bowl , you can't keep a eye on your coat. I have holsters that will retain my CCW without any worry of it "DROPPING'. There is no PRINTING , BULGING OR SHOWING. THATS WHY THEY CALL IT CONCEALED. If you can not conceal it , control it safely then , Do not carry it . Sorry just a little on edge today FROM STUPIDITY.

Be sure of your state's rules on this point.
    PA has no such laws.

    ********. Concealed is concealed, anywhere, not just on your immediate person. There are more weapons in briefcases than you apparently know about. I can easily put my briefcase next to my chair and be quite aware of it. Or my coat hanging on the back of my chair. Furthermore, there's usually a weapon in the console of my truck that I lock when I step out of it. AND OF COURSE I'M RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. So what's your point? I'm not suggesting you put a gun in your coat pocket and hang it in the cloakroom down the hall. Or tossing your gym bag under the table and wandering off down the bowling alley. So get a grip.

    So have you bowled yet? What did you decide to do?

    Nobody , is talking about OFF BODY CONCEALED ,the post clearly asked about 'CARRY' while bowling. If my post struck a nerve, it was not address to you . It was a STATEMENT NOT A QUESTION . So KEEP your LOOSE grip to your self.

    I"m sorry to all the other posts that had to read this. But trying to justifying lack of sense and unsafe practice of weapon control is ******** . CONCEALED "CARRY" WEAPON , MEANS ON YOU. IN THE CAR AND HOME IT MIGHT BE CONCEALED. a brief case on the floor or a coat on your chair is NOT CARRY. iTS off body concealment, Unless you CARRY your wife's pocketbook on your shoulder while you bowl Is the only CCW you can justify. So hang on to that purse.

    Alright, it's easy to misinterpret posts, so, in the interest of peaceful resolution, my apologies to you, sir, if I did, in fact, misconstrue what you were saying. I read your post as calling me stupid for suggesting carrying off body in a gym bag, or whatever. (Now, if you WERE calling me stupid, cancel my apology...).

    I know the question was regarding carrying while bowling. I merely suggested a possible alternative to carrying on your person in a situation wherein that might be cumbersome. I do routinely have a weapon in my briefcase, often as a backup to the one I'm carrying.

    And hey, you can make fun of me when you catch me carrying that purse, but I hope you have a smile on your face when you do it.

  11. ... can't you just ccw and "not" bowl... sorry folks, I'm just going to sit and enjoy watching all the rest of you tonight...
