    Do you carry 24/7?

    Do you always have a gun on you or just when you need one? I've made it a habit to always have a gun on me since I received my CCW. If I don't have my Taurus (swithing to the new Glock 23 when I get my permit) on me, I have my Beretta Tomcat in a pocket. If I go take the trash out which is down the block in my subdevision, I carry. If I'm just going up the street to get some fast food (which I shouldn't be anyway), I carry. How about you?

    I strap my 1911 on just before I hit the door, even if I'm going out to mow. I usually have a pistol handy readibly available in my place.

    Yesterday I was helping a friend move and I have my Taurus PT140 strapped on in my Comp C-TAC IWB holster the whole time. I had no problem at all and we were carrying some heavy stuff down a flight of stairs. I considered taking it off but didn't since it wasn't really bothering me. I love that holster.

  5. Pants on ... gun on.

    That's how it goes here for me.

    If I am dressed then I am armed. Wether it's playing with the kids or cooking dinner. The only exception is while I am at work. We are not permitted to carry at work and I don't. It's a personal decision I have made. I will abide by my companies regulations. I am however permitted to keep a firearm in the car while on company property and I do.

    I travel through the state a lot and I like to be prepared just in case the SHTF.

    Luckily I am able to carry at work but if I wasn't allowed I think I would leave it in the car as well.

    I carry most of the time when I go out, but when I'm rushing out the door to work, I can't carry (flight suit), so will usually just keep my gun in the car with me...if I have time to grab it in the first place, that is. When I'm out with the family, an HK USPc 9mm is my companion, IWB in a Cross-Breed Super Tuck.

    I have to say I left my gun in the car yesterday when I went into a bank of all places. Its legal for me but I realized the shirt I was wearing was just a little short and I just wasn't comfortable. I would have put my Tomcat in my pokcet if I had it but I didn't.

  9. Hey KingAir, nice to see you here!

    My pistol is just part of my wardrobe so if I'm dressed, I'm packing. If I'm lounging around the house I may not be strapped, but you can bet there's some instant mayhem within arm's reach.

    I've always been bemused by the attitude of "I'll just carry when I need to". If I could accurately predict when I'd need a gun, I would: A. not go there in the first place, and B. be so stinking rich from investments that I would have a Blackwater team providing 24/7 protection.

    I know several CCW holders who take that tack and it makes me crazy. I mean, do you only put on your seat belt when you're going to get in a wreck? Do you only pay your insurance on months that your house is going to burn down?

    Their comeback is often "Well, I'll put it on if I'm going somewhere dangerous". Besides the obvious response that danger knows boundaries, crime will happen wherever it will, I have to ask them why they are going someplace where they suspect they may get in a firefight?

    Having a CCW is no excuse to engage in risky behaviour, so why on earth would you go somewhere with a gun that you wouldn't go without?

    Oops. Looks like my soapbox is getting wobbly, I better get back off of it now.

    A friend I went through the CCW class with doesn't carry on a regular basis and I can never understand why. He said he just doesn't want to carry a gun around on him all day. I've tried talking some sense into him but its a waste of time. To each his own I guess.
