    If I am outside of the house I am carrying. If inside I have something close at hand, if not on my hip. Everywhere I go the glock goes with me. I am a student so when I go to class I must lock it in the car. Other than that I will not go where I cannot carry.

    On another forum ( a member posted that when asked why he carries a gun he answers "because a cop won't fit in my holster."

    I can't say it any better than that.

    From IL, so the only time I get to protect myself is when I go into states that trust the common citizen.

    --- Some of the friendliest people I have ever talked to are gun owners and shooters and according to the gun activists we are the mass murders and felons of the nation???

    Any time I am out the door of my home I have one, sometimes two, on me.

    At home I may not have it on my person, but I have one very close at hand.

    Any time I leave the house I carry. One of my jobs is at the local university, and since I don't have a car to keep my gun in while I'm there, and I also don't have a death wish, I carry despite university policy not allowing it. Yes, if I get caught I'll probably lose my job, but so? At least I'll still be alive. Also, I do not see too many no gun signs around here, but where I do see them, I ignore them because none of these places has metal detectors or anyone at the door frisking patrons.

    When I'm at home I keep my gun readily accessible, accept when my girlfriend has her kids over, in which case I either keep it on my person, or, if I'm sleeping, I stuff it between the mattresses of the bed.

    If it is legal I am armed. And other than having to make trips to the state capitol, I've gotten pretty good at avoiding going places that bar carrying a weapon.

    I carry anywhere I legally can, including at home. The only time I am not carrying is at church. I have before, but do not make a habit of it.

    The only person available to protect you 24 hours a day is you.

    Church is one place that I can't imagine nor carrying. It seems like just a matter of time before they are targeted to me.

  10. Do you carry 24/7

    Except in the defenseless killing zones as prescribed by the state.

    Another for yes, 24/7 everywhere legal.

    I do tho myself refer to carry 16/7, as when asleep the gun is off carry but on floor within easy reach!

    I am fortunate to work from home and so in fact OC much of every day - and when out have sufficient carry garment options that year round I can still manage the same full size.

    Over and above my own relative ease of full time carry, I consider it a dedication - somewhat of ''I do carry (full time) - or I don't - no half measure. I have no pre-cognitive skills and so am not likely to know in advance if anything goes down - and unlikely tho that may be, I choose to be armed at all times possible. With luck this will prove to have been unnecessary when I pop off (naturally I hope) ...... but I sure wish to cover all bases possible while still alive and kickin!

    is like owning a piano and assuming that you are a musician!."

    If a BG dies as the result of pointing a gun at me, then he has merely succumbed to an occupational hazard of being a thug
