    How many get slack about carrying ?

    I've been carrying since 95 and have had to pull it only once and the sight of it was enough to make him decide he wanted to be some place else.After all these years I find myself sometimes thinking about leaving it at home but I still carry it everyday.Anyone else leave theirs home sometimes?

    I'm always armed, except when I go to work...I work in a school! I can't even have it in the car on the school lot.
    My firearm is part of a ritual...watch, wallet, glasses, phone, OC spray, knife, and firearm....I am never without it (outside of school).
    Hopefully, the changes being sought in the FL gun laws will fix that problem, we'll see.

    Unfortunately, due to the laws in Georgia, there are places I cannot CC. In situations like that, I will remove my gun and lock it in the truck. But it goes back on as soon as I get back to it. Of course work goes without saying...not allowed there either, even on the property locked in the vehicle. But to answer directly, I do not voluntarily leave it at home if I do not have to.
    Better to have and to hold, than to leave in the nightstand.....

    No gun at work, it's a Felony to carry at my work, but everywhere else I carry.

    I suffer from Murrphyitis. A disease were if it can happen, it'll happen to me. So, the day I decide to not carry will be the day I'll need my gun.

    Well,I compromised a little.I have a p32 that I can just slip in my pocket.It all depends on where I'm going.I live in a small town about 25 miles south of Dallas where I will just carry the little one.

    If I leave the house, It's on my hip. Period.

    I do get lax about carrying in the house though. But I usually have one or two within reach.

    Here in Ohio, there are so many places you can't legally carry under the current law that during the average outing I'm more likely NOT to be carrying.

    Hopefully the law re: carrying in establishments with a liquor license will be changing soon.

    Nope, though occasionally I will opt for a smaller more compact firearm...AKA with "suit pants" and attending a wedding or a funeral...hopefully not my own...funeral.

    I'm armed everywhere, every time it is legal. Here in Florida, that's most of the time. I'm a believer in O'Leary's corollary to Murphy's Law.:

    When I feel lackadaisical, I'll downsize to just a j-frame in my pocket.

    Otherwise, the only time that I don't carry is when it's illegal.

    I did think about not carrying from time to time around my so-called safe area until I needed my gun in that same "safe" area. Good thing for me I did have it with me and no longer question myself about carrying again.

    While it is not against the law for me to carry while working, the coporate policy is no firearms,
    so I abide by it.
    BUT, I carry while to and from work, and just about any waking minute thereafter.

    I am even becoming one of the carry while at/in home guys, because of what I've learned while here at DC.

    If I leave the house, I have my gun on me. One of the few exceptions is on Sunday when the Georgia State Legislature will not allow me to protect myself with a gun while I am at Church. Even then, the gun is in the car, but then again, if the bad guy is in the building, a gun in the car is worthless. Maybe I should see how well our hymnbooks do at stopping bullets
