    As always. It was raining so didn't have as many kids and even less teens. This leaves way too much candy in the house now. ;)

    Yes, but my situational awareness was taxed...skeletons, pirates, huge frogs....and I was composed enough that I knew that not one of them was a threat...

    My wife and I always sit out on the front porch with the candy bowl and a pitcher of iced tea. This way we can talk to all the neighbors when they bring their kids around.

    Nowadays all small kids have a parent standing at the end of the walk while their kids come up to the porch. This is somewhat sad but definately necessary.

    I was out there in shorts,long shirt,and barefooted. On my hip was my Kimber and in my back pocket was my ASP. My usual blade was on my dresser for the evening.

    Neighbors don't have a clue as to how safe their kids are when they are in my yard.

    That's how I like it. -------

    I was while walking around town with my son. Too many "goblins" running around.

    I was open carrying in the house. Had the gun on one side, cuff and mag on the other (badge next to holster) got a few looks from the kids at the door.

    Without doubt!

    . . . always packin' !

    Especially careful at Halloween - no incidents, though - but never let your guard down!

    Yes I was carrying (my first Halloween carry) and even had my wife carry her brand new (this past weekend) Glock 19.
    Where I live, we don't get a single trick or treater, but if there were teens coming around not dressed up at all, I'd probably berate them, snap their picture with a digital camera, and tell them to begone for being lazy greedy losers -- and remind them that if they try anything stupid to my property, the photo will be given to the police. (Teach 'em to not wear costume disguises on Halloween!)

    eep! Pretty suspicious that they were not carrying anything to put candy in.

    What about reporting them to the cops? I mean, I know they might say, "Hey, fella, lots of kids are out tonight," but that seems to have had a possibly sinister air to it.

    Let's hope they were scared straight by your open carry.

    Frankly, it wouldn't surprise me if meeting kids at the door on Halloween (or even possibly meeting anyone at the door at any time) resulted in some calls to the police.

    Naturally, the police would probably say that a person inside his own home is free to come answer the door like that, especially if he is not brandishing the gun...

    Not sure what the open carry is intended to accomplish when it comes to greeting people in an otherwise friendly way at the door... I would like to read more comments from those who do so, please.
