    As PT-111, I am usually dressed cowboy style. The only addition I make for Holloween is a genuine Mexican serape with my primary handgun worn visibly. It was more genuine when I had the old S&W M19 but the Taurus works well too. I've never had anyone go off on me - on the contrary, I've had compliments - and the children are absolutely fascinated by the thing. They ask if it's real, and I say "Yes. You may look, but don't touch." Around here it's normal to have a five to 10 minute conversation at every house, and I get to give the kids some firearms education in that time.

    This year I only had one trick or treater, and that was my ex-fiance's son as I live in the sticks. He already knows all the rules and can shoot well. I didn't have anyone to take this year so I didn't get to do the "candy and lecture" thing... but I still went into town and watched with cell phone in one hand and decaf coffee in the other, from a convenience store window.

    It amazes me how many people just don't slow down at all when the kids are out.

    Actually, in my state (and in all that I'm aware of) it is legal to carry a concealed weapon on your own property even without a license. Hence, I would not have been technically using my CCW were I carrying concealed while handing out Halloween candy.

    Just a minor nit-pick.

    Darn Skippy.

    Wife and I took our three year old out. No one comes to our house, not that I'm complaining.

    Yes, I did. Had the S&W638 in the front pocket.

    One incident happen also. My house has a courtyard with a metal Iron gate at the entry, which you have to go through to get to the main house door. Well, we just sat out in the courtyard, had the fire going in the fireplace and had a lock on that gate. All they had to do was ring the doorbell out there, but most didnt, but didnt matter, as we were right there anyway for the "goblins". The incident was that a father, who was big, say 6'6" and +250 lbs reached over the gate to unlock the latch, but of course, couldnt because I had it locked. I got up and he complained on why I had the gate locked. My answer to him, "didnt you read the sign on the gate?".. "oh....." (Beware of Dog sign). I told him I did that to keep the dog in and the "little goblins out".

    This was our first Holloween at this new house, and even though alot of kids in the neighborhood, we only maybe had 25 show up. There are so many carnivals and outtings at the malls now, that I think the parents are taking them there, instead of the neighbors. I know, we had tons of candy left over, so the wife took it to her work, so her employees can get fatter!! Next year, only 2 bags, not 10..

    I live in the "outskirts" so no T-O-T'ers.

    But, even if I lived in town and handed out candy I would have been armed.

    Took my two grandkids out, and yes I was packing the entire time. I love Halloween. I don't answer the door without looking out the window first to see who is there no matter what holiday it is and a gun is at hand at all times.

    I went trick or treating with the kids and was armed, as usual. Had my usual daily wear plus a Surefire C2.
