    Question Right Choice?

    Last Saturday my youngest son got married, his wife to be who is not anti gun requested no one wear their peace to the wedding or the reception after....

    I usually wear my HK USP .45 pancake strong side, and a iTAC dual mag pouch weak side, which requires a belt.....

    Wearing a tux prevents this, as they only have suspenders adding to the difficulty of CCW in a tux...

    So did I do the right thing, carrying the XDM .40 in a Galco shoulder rig with two spare 18 round mags rather than try and wear a belt with the HK ;-)

    Don't know if you could have kept the peace if the bride had seen your piece, but I have no problem with it.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Well, what's done is done. Now, in the interest of your youngest son's sanity, you might just want to keep this secret from your new daughter in law. That, sir, would be the right choice

    Why would you conceal a gun at a wedding? Nothing ever happens at weddings...

    Mmmmm, here's one from Google, and there are MANY others...http://www.ktla.com/news/landing/ktl...0,594986.story

    I carry at every wedding I attend, and most weddings I attend, I am the officiant at. So yeah, I think you did the right thing. No harm done because it didn't cause a problem, and if something had gone wrong you'd be the only line of defense until the thin blue line showed up.

    I will be carrying at least one piece at my wedding in a few weeks. I just have to choose which. Might be getting a Taurus .22 from a guy I know, and it's small enough that I could put it in a pocket.

    Not to worry. After all, she's HIS wife, not yours. Good decision.

    If it's your wedding, carry whatever you like... Ever heard the term "shotgun wedding"? Okay, so it's supposed to be her dad carrying the shotgun, but exceptions can be made.

    Oh, and congratulations :)

    I think you made the wrong move. The proper thing to do would have been to swap out the spare mags for a holster for the HK and bring both.

    Someone above pointed out that she's his wife, not yours, so it is his problem, not yours... That is probably the most important point of the thread...
