Yea, was funny when my dad saw me putting the guns up to go swimming. He asked how many guns I needed to make the 2 mile trip from my house to his. Said never know but I hope I had enought.
Only time they don't go is if we are going to be drinking, but I usually do that at home.

Yes!

(If they don't like my guns then they won't like me, either.)

I carried at my own wedding wearing a tuxedo. Surprising how well a G17 can conceal under a jacket.

Yes. Gun is no good sitting at home alone.

If you voluntarily go places you think you will need your gun, you need to rethink where you go. Carrying a gun is a precaution against the unpredictable. I try to practice the 4 stupids rule when I decide where I'm going. (Don't go stupid places at stupid times to do stupid things with stupid people) But I always carry unless prohibited by law.

Agreed. If I knew when and where crime was going to occur and I would need to use my gun to defend myself, I wouldn't go there and I'd make a whole lot of money as a consultant for the police department...

I do not carry a firearm into other peoples homes, on park rides or in church. Other than that, I usually do.

...
I have been going to places where it wasn't even a question of whether I might need a gun but that a gun was going to be in my hand(s) as I get out of the car for more than three decades now.

I agree that if it is not mandated one should not go to places where one thinks one might need a gun. In a social setting or for that matter if I elect to go out somewhere for dinner by myself, I have no complete control over who else may enter a business after I am there. However there is a substantial difference in the potential quality of people one may run into in places to which the public is invited and in private homes with people who choose their friends wisely.

Yes.
If the good stuff is offered and the whiskey going smoothly down the esophagus will likely scramble the brain, my wife takes care of car key and gun.
But the Spyderco and a small Surefire stays with me no matter what.

I always carry and like others have said, if they don't like my carry pistol, they couldn't like me.

I am especially convinced this is the best path after recent events. My 35 year old friend "K" was visited his Granny and left his carry piece behind as he was on familiar turf. Two neighborhood thugs jumped him and beat him to death to steal his wrist watch.

Since "K"'s death, I've talked to his grieving father several times. He asked me to share this story and to encourage all readers to carry. He lost his son but maybe his loss can change the lives of others.

I carry always and you should, too!

Flash, sorry to hear about your friend. I hope that those two criminals were caught, prosecuted and (hopefully) are the continuous recipients of painful torture in prison. But I digress.

The point is you carry not necessarily for those times when having dinner with family or friends, but for the times before and after.

A very good friend of mine became a victim of violent crime a number of years ago in a similar situation. He, his wife and young kids were coming home from dinner out. Upon parking at their house and getting out of the car, he noticed a few suspicious looking guys walking over in his direction.

Very soon after they all got into the house (and shut the door), those guys were at the front door trying to get in. After knocking and trying to get someone inside to open the door, at least one of those guys began shooting through the door. My friend was hit, twice I believe. Non-life threatening injuries. He was behind the front door deciding whether to call the police. It all happened very quickly from the time they got out of the car to when the shooting happened.

After a number of shots were fired through the door, the assailants left. There were no leads in the case and no one was brought to justice.

Long story short, my friend and his family moved shortly after that incident.

My friend is a decently-big guy. 6'4" and at least mid-200lbs. The very mention of the word "gun" gets him visually shaken.

It pains me to say my friend was a victim.

If violent crime is headed my way, I'll be armed, thank you.

Yup, I got married with a jframe in my pocket. No one knew. I try to carry more gun than a jframe, but sometimes pocket carry can't be beat.

I think you can see the consensus here: carry where it is legal.

My main problems come around sports. I've been known to carry while playing basketball (well nobody noticed, but I've told people about it). But I'd only do that in half-court games. If the games are getting serious, no way I could have a gun on me. Too much body contact.

Likewise, I coach a soccer team, and I'm running for the whole game. I choose not to carry there. But I do have a gun 50 feet or so away in my car. I actually have heard gunshots during a practice once last year. Some nearby forested area and I think someone was messing around with targets or something (not wise).

But a dinner party or lunch? That's a no-brainer.
