    Who all knows that you carry?

    Who all knows you carry?

    Friends? Close friends only? Coworkers? Immediately family only?

    Have any of your relationships changed with people once they found out you carry? Have any of them asked you NOT to carry when you are around them?

    Well lets see. My family, most of my closer friends, know I carry all the time at home or out. I doubt its a state secret since I OC at times also that I carry at least part of the time. Never had an issue with anyone anywhere. No nobody has asked me not to carry but a few have asked me to make sure I was a few times.

    Wife, Adult kids, Their Kids, best Buddy and a next door neighbor. I refer to it as "My Medical device" (I wear AIWB, my youngest adult daughter noticed a bulge and asked If i had to wear a medical device!)
    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    My wife and my two sons are the only family members who know. A few fellow CHL holders also know. Beyond that, nobody.

    The only people that know that i carry is immediate family (my folks and brother), my wife, and my friends who also carry, most of which are LEO's.

    Family knows. Friends do too but it hasn't come up in over 20 years. Former co-workers, it's just assumed among us all.

    My family and my very closest neighbors. Kind of a guide for my closest neighbors.

    More people know than necessary, but I don't work at keeping it a secret because I'm an active 2nd amendment advocate. Nor do I brag about it or bring it up for no reason!

    No one has ever asked me to not carry. Most know that if I can't carry I won't be there -- except for a very, very few places like the doctor's office which didn't used to be posted but is now. I'm not changing doctors because of the stupid sign. He agrees with me that it shouldn't be up.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    Family and a few (very few) close friends. Never had anyone say anything negative to me about it.

    Then he should take it down and cut it into teeny tiny pieces.

    I accidentally outted myself to a friend last year. Aside from him my best friend knows but I'm not concerned about him. None of my kin know I CC.
