    Here there are several ranges that are outdoors were you have to walk down range and hang your target then once you get back online you then after everyone is behind the line identify that you are about to fire so that everyone has there muffs on and is ready to shoot. I guess that i may be old fashioned but, the safety of others is top priority. i dont want to have a unknowing friend or relative move in front of me before i start firing in a defensive situation when i could have prevented it by simply telling them im packing.

    As i said in the post i tell my friends not like im walking through walmart telling everyone that im armed its out of sight and they dont need to know but i dont have many friends in this world that i can say are truly friends i feel they have a right to know. Just like my family its purely a safety thing. If anyone else ever knew that im concealed then i havent done my job I've failed because i carry concealed so that im not a target or a preceived threat.

    You need to read 5-73-306 (D)Any licensee entering a private home shall notify the occupant that the licensee is carrying a concealed handgun.

    I would always carry, and never tell. If something happened at your freinds house and you dont have your gun to protect yourself or your family and freinds, then you would probably feel pretty bad about leaving your protection in your car. The only bad thing that would happen, if you concealed your weapon in your freinds house, is that you would become a very bad hug giver! lol

    I agree completely you would never be able to forgive yourself if it happened. That's why it's good to always have something descreat to slip in a pocket

    If not a concealed handgun, then what...? Cell phone with 911 on speed dial? Pepper spray? Worry beads?

    We had an officer recently kill himself accidentally while cleaning his weapon, he had failed to clear the chamber. Human error, imagine that.
    We had one here leave a loaded weapon in his glove compartment. He and his wife left 2 kids in that car. The 7 yr old boy accidentally killed his 3 yr old sister with it.

    (Same thing happened to a Hispanic couple in a more rural area the same week...the cop, while charged with 2nd degree manslaughter, got off...the Hispanic couple did not. The excuse was 'different jurisdictions.' I find the double or even triple standard sickening.)

    My point would be however....that a family's kids are more likely to be accidentally or intentionally shot by a family member (or themself) than a stranger *in the home.*....You recognize 'human error'. Please recognize the higher likelihood of danger for what it is.

    Do you tell or not tell when entering other peoples home while carrying?

    Agreed. This is the only acceptable approach.

    That's not right either.

    Everyone has their own comfort levels. And their own opinions...and rights to their own property.]


    Think about how many new permit holders are nervous about carrying one in the chamber? How many people decide they never want to do so? Are they wrong? Maybe not for them.

    However, she came here and asked how people handled that particular situation...and got many answers and perspectives.

    What I find unreasonable are those who assume that every permit carrier (or anyone else owning a gun for that matter) is going to handle--defined as having the gun on their person--in a safe manner. We haven't all had military training (like it doesn't have its share of NDs) or NRA training or any other realistic safety course. I know people with guns who shouldn't have them. I refuse to be around them when they have one in possession. They are that unsafe. Just because one possesses a permit don't mean one knows how to handle a firearm.
    I see your point but as the OP and myself pointed out...even the professionals screw up.

    Like everyone, anywhere. Accidents happen. It's just as likely someone will knock over a candle and burn your house down...but it's certainly possible.

    Because of the general atmosphere in my home and the people I spend time with, even with alcohol....I have occasional small friendly gatherings. I'm way past my 20's and 'open parties.' My experience and belief is that cc'd guns are like wallets....they stay where they belong and no one even thinks twice about them.

Likewise, if I had the same concerns as the OP, I would ask (or say), "if you are carrying, please make sure the gun remains secure, especially out of reach of the children." This is especially going to be a normal thing to ask on base, I think, which is the OP's situation. As a guest, I try to assume polite defaults, or ask if it becomes necessary. Expecting guests OR hosts to read minds is unreasonable.
    Heh, this is a farm and yeah, shoes off in the house!

    OTOH, I cant imagine asking people the question I bolded above. Of anyone coming over. I guess it's just me but I cant picture it.
