    Being on edge happens from time to time, but if that's the case don't bring the edge with you here. We all share the same interests and have a good grasp on the responsibilities that come with firearms ownership. JJ likes “What if” questions. Read some other posts and you’ll find that’s his thing. He also has a very unique sense of humor within his questions. Like this one “What about a small gym bag type deal, which holds your shoes, wallet and other assorted sundries, like your gun?” It was a question… No cause to USE CAPS LIKE YOU WERE YELLIN AT HIM…. So please keep it cool and casual. If you had a strong feeling about his post use some humor to make a point. Like: “Maybe a purse that would match you bowling shoes”

    Se how much fun that was... Yea... Nice...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    No, not yet and no I haven't made up my mind yet. I am leaning towards leaving it in my car although I am very uncomfortable doing so. The ankle holster was a good idea but, don't have a small enough gun to do it with. I will eventually get a small frame revolver for this situation. If I didn't bowl people would be suspicious like someone recommended. I like bowling and would be getting questions. Most of my friends do not know I carry. I know there would be a lot of objections to it so only a few know. What they don't know won't hurt them. I was always taught by one of my NRA instructors that this was the best way because people are people and would probably draw attention to it not necessarily or purpose. Asking questions about it and people over hearing it etc…

    Yo bro I don't know who you are calling an idiot but, the only idiot is a person who don't ask questions. No matter how much of an EXPERT you THINK you are. No question is stupid when it comes to handling a firearm. We are all in this together we are suppose to help each other. Save your fire for the anti gunners. Some of us are new to carrying a gun or new to carrying in certain situations. It's people like you who scare people away from their questions. How are people suppose to get help if they are being called idiots. So to all no matter how dumb you think your question maybe ask it because, there are no dumb questions especially if it saves you or someone from a mishap.

    I agree with asking questions, and people refraining from name calling, however disagree with the portions of your post in bold print.

    I present you with two "stupid" questions that I was asked in past firearms safety classes. Needless to say, the students asking the questions did not pass my class.

    1) Can I look down the barrel to check if the gun is loaded?
    2) If I shoot my buddy in the [insert 3 letter word for buttocks], will it hurt?

    There were several other things these students did that contributed to my decision to ask them to leave the class. Keep in mind that these questions were asked AFTER the 3 basic rules of NRA safety were presented multiple times.

    I learned a long time ago that terms like "always" and "never" should used with great caution. Not to pee on your parade or anything, just thought it would be important to point out that there are some folks in this world who have no business anywhere near a firearm.

    Easy does it guys. This is the first forum that I have been in that has a very high degree of civility to it--very little cursing and very little degrading attitude. Lets all try and leave "idiot" and "stupid" out of the posts. As one poster said, and I paraphrase--if you do not ask a question, you cannot get an answer--and yes some questions deserve a raised eyebrow and an explanation of surprise but it would be better to give that person advice and inform them than to begin with degrading comments. It is different if you are teaching for a CCWP where more of a hardline attitude will convince students of their failures to understand what a gun is all about.

    My vote too. I use SmartCarry with a big ol' G21 for running and tennis, I'm sure bowling would be possible too.

    "Scary" doesn't begin to describe the thoughts running through my mind when I realized that the people asking the questions were serious. Just when you thought you've seen it all, there's someone who comes along and surprises you.

    I'm less and less surprised as I get older... I've seen the video of the kid that allowed his friend to shoot him in the chest at close range to test body armor... Well just look at that... stupid keeps growing...

    Don't forget that some of the posters on this site might be anti-gunners trying to promote firearm hysteria by making it seem like those who are involved with firearms are slack-jawed, drool-spitting morons. I find it hard to believe that anyone would ask either of the two questions that were listed unless it was in an HCI (aka Brady Campaign to Prevent Violence) class.
