    Everywhere but work, they won't let us there. Plus at least one extra mag, sometimes two or three.

    I teach in the public schools, so obviously not at work or to and from work. Otherwise, I'm always carrying my M642 Smith in a pocket holster. When I think I have to go into "Indian Country" I'll carry a Sig P245 IWB but that requires a cover garment and that's a pain in South Florida.

    I picked #4. I always carry IWB 9mm outside and outside around the house. Inside the house I carry S&W 442 on me. I am NEVER UNARMED except Illegal places and then I don't go there or use the phone. Unless I have no choices. (schools,courthouses,jails,federal buildings,etc.

    Anywhere, to include home, that's legal. I can't carry at work...Federal government for some reason frowns on that.

    As long as it's legal, I carry my pistol anytime I'm wearing my pants. It goes on in the morning when I get up and comes off when I go to bed.

    Always....The only time my gun is not with me is at work, only because they won't allow it.

    I don't leave the house without it. I don't usually carry when I'm home, but that's because the house is always locked up tight, and I have a weapon within easy reach no matter where I'm at in the house.

    Anywhere I can legally carry, I do. Unfortunately, that exludes work, and the commute, but if I go out after work or on the weekends, I'm carrying. At home, if I don't have my pistol physically on me, it's in its bedside holster within easy reach.

    The only places I don't carry are at work...mostly b/c I work in a hospital and scrubs don't conceal that well, and at school. The school thing may change if I get a new carry piece. Come on J-Frame. If there are posted places, I choose not to patronize them, or carry anyway. After all it is called "concealed" carry. If I do get made, they can ask me to leave and I just won't be back.

    I carry 99% of the time. I don't carry at work and thats because I'm a Correctional Officer. At least we have gun lockers at work, so I can carry to and from.

    From the time I wake up and get dressed till I go to bed, there is always a weapon on my person. Only have to get hit once in my life (at home) to realize you never know when you'll need it but when you do you'd better have it on you.
