Only when I get feeling that I might need a gun.
Only when going someplace that I think is high risk.
Always, when it is legal and I'm outside of the house.
Always, including at home

Always except when changing clothes or sleeping then it is at hand arm lengths away. It is to bad we arn't like Kangaroos and had a pocket in front. That would really make it easy to carry while skinny dipping in the pond. That lanyard on the colt and around my neck sometimes acts as an anchor.

Whenever I get dressed, a NAA mini-revolver goes into my right front pants pocket. It is always with me, at home as well as away, and it always has company away from the house (usually a S & W 642).

Only time I don't carry is when I go to work.
But I love to carry, it's a great feeling and I carry as much as possible.

I'm in Korea for the time being. I'm armed with a bat for home defense.
If I'm not here, I'm in Hawaii. So, not much different than Korea, except at home I'm armed.
While in the mainland, guess what, my extended family lives in Illinois. Again, no carry. How frustrated do you think I am? Korea, Hawaii, or Illinois.
I do have a carry permit though, for when I am in North Carolina (the final place I'd be) or traveling through the states. So, out of the entire year, I can legally defend myself and my family, maybe for a total of about a month.
Since the Federal Government, and State, County, City police cannot protect me and are not obligated to, it kind of bugs me just a little bit that my right to protect myself and my family is taken away. Why is disarming me making anyone else safer? It's not. Jeeze, I'm a Marine. I can't be trusted with a handgun? Someone better alert the Marine Corps about that.
It's kind of like forbidding me from wearing a seat belt in a car, because there are ambulances and medical facilities that can respond after a crash.
Sorry for spinning there a little bit. It's late, I'm tired, and .... nuff said.

Not allowed to carry at work. So I don't carry from 8 - 5 Monday through Friday. Other than that, it's either on me or within arms reach. ALWAYS!

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
