    I read Jay's post a little differently, I guess

    What I got was that his cousin deftly deflected the question with a remark that didn't really answer the original question. I assumed by that answer that he was indeed carrying.

    Jay, what's "the rest of the story?"

    BINGO to woodstock!!!!

    He did not directly deny he was packing. He said it was tacky. He painted a picture without being overtly dishonest. The assumption of the questioner was that he was not packing.

    It is like the wildlife TV shows where it pans from lion/lioness/tiger to gazelle, back and forth, back and forth. Just about everyone thinks it is a chase, when in fact the film could be taken at different times. We, as humans, fill in the missing pieces w/ our assumptions/paradigms.

    I carried at my wedding. So did the pastor and the organ player and my brother in law and my wife's uncle.

    I was recently best man in a wedding. The groom, groomsmen, and myself all love guns. The bride was cool with guns. Almost every one of us carries, but none of us carried on that day. Too many eyes in front of too many people, and we decided that discretion was the better part of valor as we chose to make the bride's day as memorable as possible, void of printing incidents that could cause cardia arrest in some members of the audience.

    BUT, I do carry as a guest at weddings. Just as long as I don't plan on getting too "jiggy with it" at the reception.

    Sadly, I've been banned from carrying at my wedding. Although, it's the only time she's made a big deal about it, so I guess I can let her have this one. I'll make sure one of the groomsman is packing though.

    I guess I have a couple of people I want to make sure they stay dead too. So I will be carrying a wooden stake and silver bullets just to be on the safe side

    I always carry where it's legal. Unless it's your cousin's wedding I wouldn't care about their opinion.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Carrying at a wedding or church is a very smart thing. Think of the shootings at churches that have increased in the last 5 years so reason enough.

    Yes, planned. :) I never said I wouldn't have one nearby, just that I wouldn't have one on me.

    The photographer at my wedding captured a great moment when my brother opened his suit to show off what he was carrying. It provided a few "marry my sister or else" jokes.

    My preacher was packing, too. Double-plus tacky!

    I carry because it is my right, and the only way I can assure my family is safe. I carried at a wedding a fewmonths ago, and I was in it!. Nobody knew, and with a smart carry at 3pm, it is deeply concealed.
    The reception was on the edge of a decent area, but bad areas real close...if you have ever been to Flint you know what I mean. There was a non related altercation that occurred at a bar across the street, and it spilled into the reception parking lot. I didn't need it, but glad I had it. You just never know.
    I agree with Rocky 100%....on tacky.

    Concealed means concealed!! You do not tell anyone. Why advertise?? I'm a firm believer in the "element of surprise"!
