Packing in a "kids" environment?
Do you ever second guess whether or not you should carry if you are going somewhere that will be loaded with kids?
Rarely do I leave the house without a sidearm.
But I have found myself pausing to evaluate if I should carry when going to a zoo, museum, a party, or anyplace else that I know will be crawling with youngsters.
I usually choose in favor of carrying regardless.
However, July 4th I took my wife and 2.5yr old son to the Palm Bch Zoo and, knowing I would be running around in the sprinkler area with my boy and not wanting to leave it in the car, I left my gun home.
Just curious if kids effect your carry decision in any way.
Carry in kids' environment
Depends on the environment!
I take my younglings' safety very seriously.
I also recognize that, if I am running through the sprinkler with a shrieking, laughing seven year old, and we are both wearing swim trunks and little else besides a delighted expression, it becomes somewhat difficult to conceal a 1911.
A kids' party where I remain fully clothed, yes definitely, as long as it did not violate the various thou-shalt-not laws that seem to abound!
Otherwise, common sense prevails.
