    I've never been asked and those people I choose to inform seem very surprised that I carry. But to be fair, as a percentage of the population, so few people carry that the majority don't seem to think about it.

    I've never been asked and I don't volunteer the information.

    Family members, a neighbor (who owns guns), and a few friends (who also have CHLs) know I carry, but very few others. I don't really advertise it and I've never been asked.

    I have colleagues who are aware of my feeling about carrying, but it is never an issue of discussion. Due to the environment in which I work (college campus where carry is prohibited) it mostly remains a non-issue on a daily basis and although I carry at all other times - including off-campus social functions, it is never discussed. I can only think of one time it was mentioned and that was when someone commented, more or less, "At least he is not armed now", to which I smiled and said nothing. I think most of my colleague simply do not think about the fact that people can legally carry concealed...it is not part of their reality.

    You would never suspect that I carry a gun.

    I have long hair and wear socks & sandals most of the time(PNW thing), I suspect most people think I am on my way out hug trees and squeeze bunnies. Most of those who know I carry,(family mostly) don't care enough to discuss it. No one else would suspect it or ask about it I am guessing.

    Most likely you're correct, and it is your demeanor or outspoken statements whereby a reasonable person may assume that you're armed. If the subject of crime comes up and you point out how important it is to have some level of protection, then there you go. I know that I’ve been too expressive in the past and now I take a more subdued approach.

    I usually say, "I can" and leave it at that unless they come back asking for more.

    If they ask "are you", my reply is simple: "maybe."

    My wife has been known to 'out' me if it comes up in conversation.

    'Not much I can do but remind her again, but for the awkward moment, I just shrug it off and keep the conversation going in another direction.
