Hopefully, that part will expand substantially with the coming legislative session here in Georgia.
Same here is Virginia. Already some Bills waiting on the new session that affect the Second Amendment Right. And we hope we can get McDonnell to sign the law for concealed carry to be okay in places like Applebee's. I don't drink. But can't CCW in a place that serves alcohol.

I carry 24/7, I'm not so good at predicting the future.

"Relatively" leaves a lot of room. Bad stuff can happen anywhere. The mall. The Wal*Mart. YOUR CHURCH.

Agreed on the shower, etc.

I'm curious, how do you make the determination that a place you are about to go to is safe enough to not carry?

Why? Glocks don't mind the saltwater. I should design and patent a neoprene holster! That way you can pick off the sharks as you surf!

If I knew when/where it was going to be needed I'd make sure to be SOMEWHERE ELSE at that time.

Carry 24/7, with very very few exceptions. Ironically, the only exception I can remember has been to the sheriff's office to renew my CHL.

If you're not going to carry it all the time, why carry it at all? You're gambling with your life.

The one morning I did need it, it was'nt one me. It's on or close by 24/7 now. You don't and can't predict the future. Learn from other's lessons and heed the advice.

A family bonding moment! I think it would be kind of cool if something like that happened in our family gatherings.

Increasing

I got my CCP about 8 or 9 months ago.

I am carrying much more. All weekend. Sometimes week nights.

I cant carry at work, or even have a firearm in my vehicle at work.

Well, Uncle Sam does not allow me to carry while on duty...[no need for smart ass comments....thats how it is]....I do not go places known to be of issue and I am armed otherwise when in my home or off duty and outside my home.

This is as 24/7 as I can get.

It was kinda cool. We discussed it a lot. A mutual friend I met through Frankie Lee knowing him also carries. I'm gonna suggest we look into forming a local group, or see if one is already active around here.

Hooks inside my FtLs just as easy as it hooks inside a pair of jeans.

No comments directed at you.


It's unfortunate that the lesson of Fort Hood was addressed backwards.....

Got my CCP about 6 months ago. Didn't carry much at first until I became "comfortable" with my G23 and put about 200 rounds through it. I have owned a gun for about 6 months and put out about 500 rounds. I'm now carrying 99.9% of the time. Not allowed to carry it at work or even have it in my vehicle at work. Besides that it's on me 24/7. Unfortunately my G23 is in the shop. Don't have a backup yet but that is going to be my next purchase. Looking at a G27.

Thatís different. There are places where I cannot carry as well. You have to weigh your risk versus your return. It doesnít make it any less of a gamble, but it is nonetheless necessary at times.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
They have a very strict no weapons policy where I work. I donít carry there. Itís a calculated gamble Iíve accepted. Check your state laws and carefully read your employee handbook. Our policy states that having a firearm in the parking lot provided for employees is strictly forbidden; however, they added wording where that would be different depending on local/state laws. That part of the employee manual is modified by FL law; this allows me to store my gun in the car safe. While I still cannot carry at work, it doesnít mean I have to make my trip or errands I may run after work unarmed.<o:p></o:p>

As close to 24/7 as possible.

Been in lots of pain since the weather went cold, carry a derringer in my pocket while around the house.
