    Question Carry while playing?

    Would you carry while playing two-hand touch football with 8 people? Got to talking with a friend about this one.
    Specifics:
    4-on-4, all people you know, high school and college age
    IWB, shirt tucked in, jacket over that.

    Not a good idea IMO, just for the fact you could get hurt just falling on it for one. I have never been in a ''touch'' football game that didn't have some contact components that can get pretty physical.

    Absolutely not. As others have mentioned, I've never played a "touch" game without any contact.

    And why would you want a block of steel slowing you down anyway?

    Nope I'd have designated snipers surrounding the field

    No, it would hurt too much to fall upon it or block someone and have it come between and hurt us both. Still a good chance it will become dislodged too and get into the dirt.
    But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

    For just throwing a football around, sure, no problem. But no way would I carry while actually playing a game.

    No, I would not
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
