    For those with permits

    The discussion on how much or little we choose to carry has been well covered in other threads - done to death some might say

    I have a lifestyle that means I can and do carry from getting up to going to bed, and it is rare indeed I have to disarm in my state for legal reasons. That is all my good fortune and choice.

    Many folks have limitations either on venues where carry is disallowed in their state plus work related restrictions. Then there are a few folks who while having a permit only carry now and again. I respect all folk's decisons over carry - it is their's and their's alone and will also sometimes be influenced by location issues (risk assessment).

    As I said - not looking to re-open debate on how much or little - simply looking to get a useful sample in a poll - to see what the spread is.

    No need to post at all - it is votes I want much more than comment. Thanks.

    Not only can I not carry at work... I park my truck on company property and they even prohibit guns in your personal vehicles!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    I carry as much as I can, but since I am a full time student and work in a bar, that isnt as much as I would like. However there is always a firearm on me at home and whenever I am heading anywhere I am allowed to carry, and if i can't carry it in a plave and have to go in, I leave it in the truck

    27 votes in so far - thx folks - appreciate the input. The bigger the sample the better the result - so other thread visitors - cast your vote too.

    Thought you would be Bob - but if not, keep that ''lunge'' real short distance!

    well I voted for carrying all waking hours, but I have yet to be able to legally bring my handguns into the state so go figure....
    When I lived in NH I put my gun on in the morning and took it off when I went to bed. I will likely do the same when my NY permit arrives with the exception of not carrying if I go to my wife's work...she works in a hospital that has the same address as a medical school (and is affiliated with the school) and carry on school grounds where teaching is conducted is prohibited in NY. I have yet to look further into this or get a true legal opinion but from looking over the laws it looks like I won't be able to carry even in the parking lot of my wife's work. Other than that, I'll be armed 100% of the time on my NY permit...though I don't really end up interacting with a lot of people on my average day...I'm a stay-at-home dad while my wife works so most of my interaction is with people at wally world, or the grocery store when I'm out shopping. When I'm using my NH & ME permits then I am armed 100% of the time that I am awake so I guess the real answer is somewhere between the first and second option and depends on which state I'm in.

    After 30 years I am finishing up my degree, so I can't carry on campus. I do have one of the lock-box type of car gun safes and I have my piece in the truck & under the seat. As soon as I get in the truck to leave campus I am packing.

    If asked for consent to search I will tell them to piss up a rope, I do nothing that would give them reason to search and nothing in student handbook says guns can't be in vehicles anyway.

    All one has to do is look at my old shirts and it is obvious I carry all the time. My t-shirts seem to wear out first in the pistol area.

    Until I get a pocket gun, the only place I don't carry is in the office.

    Wow! 52 now - great If we can make three figures and over then the sample will be most useful.

    It appears already to show what I might have guessed overall. Thx and keep the votes comin'.

    I can't carry on campus so most of the day on weekdays I have to be unarmed.

    When I am not at work or visiting some where that does not allow carry like a federal or state institution. I have a pistol on.

    Everywhere right now. But as almost no one takes security seriously yet in the U.S.A my next job may disarm me.
