I think there is a huge difference in "on the street" and in a private residence. I don't have to have a permit to have a gun in MY house, but I do have to have a permit to go into someone else's house or on the street.

I work in homes everyday and if someone asked for my permit because I got made, I'd gladly show it to them, no problem.

The repairman has just as much a right ("... shall not be infringed.") as you do, to defend himself.
I said it in earlier posts, and I'll repeat myself again. We of all people should not be the ones jumping to the conclusion that a repairman with a gun is a threat, simply because of the gun. If the homeowner didn't consider the repairman a threat 10 seconds before spotting the gun, how does the addition of the gun make him a threat?
I just think its a very hypocritical of pro-gun, pro-carry, pro-2a people to automatically assume there is a threat, because of a gun.

I thought about it some more...
spades brings up a good point. I was playing more of a devil's advocate role earlier. While I still feel as though its well within the homeowners rights to ask to see a permit, it is hypocritical of pro-2a, cc, ect people to demand such things.
I would probably ask them what kinda gun they have (just to let them know that I know) and strike up a conversation and maybe casually ask them if they have a permit.
I would hate to be labeled a "bad guy" just because I had my gun on. "Guilty until proven innocent".

Very funny you say this. Some years ago I went into an attic to do some ductwork in this gay guys home (strictly an adjective, no offense intended). It was an unfinished attic absolutly bare, except a little curtained area with a light. Turn on the light and smack in the middle is a locked chest, just like the one on pulp fiction. I went to "go get some materials." Came back with a my brother I hired to help me finish the one-man job. I wasn't going back there alone! True story!

so many forks in this road that there really is no definite conclusion. you can be up front before entering and seem to "pro". you can leave it in the truck and play it safe. i myself? just conceal really well and if dug out and found... well, you had bad experiences with hostile dogs and it's for your protection. i think your just fine with going about the way you are... keep carrying... don't let this closet case determine your level of protection.
What's this button do?

I absolutely see your point. It does work both ways. I wouldn't have a problem showing my permit if I was made in someones house. I'm sure if I noticed a guy printing in my house , I'd be ok with it and would likely just ask what he was carrying. Like someone posted earlier, I'm going to be armed anyway if someone comes to my house I don't know and I'm going to keep my eye on them.

I guess the though never crossed the guys mind that even something as simple as a flat screwdriver, you may have even had one in your tool box, could be used as a weapon?
