    I've had one beer while at home (I carry at home, too). The most I've ever had outside the home was to taste test my wife's Pina Colada at a restaurant.

    Since I most always drive, I don't want to have my kids see me drink and drive, no matter if it's only one beer. CCW'ing while out makes it even more important.

    Firearms + any mood/mind altering substances don't mix. It's not worth it. That includes open/concealed carry, sport shooting, hunting, cleaning, etc.

    I do not feel it is a harsh opinion at all. I actually did not have much of a choice the first time, as it was situational blending. The second time I felt guilty for a while after and was kicking myself in the proverbial a** afterward. I just thought this was a thought provoking subject.

    OK, Let's Stir It Up...

    In FL, you can have a beer and CCW. I have on ocassion (although rare) had a beer with a pasta dinner and still had a weapon on me. Perfectly legal...
    This has not happened often, and I can't even remember the last time it happened...but I know it did.

    I DON'T go to bars...

    One beer over an hour and a half meal for a 210# guy will do nothing. Now, I do not normally drink anyway...seldom, in fact...each individual must be his/her own judge...
    I stay legal, sober, and calm...
    On the rare ocassion at home that I decide to have a couple of brewski's prior to retiring...my weapon comes off...but it is available!

    Am I the only one?

    A jury won't hear your pleas of "but I'm so tall and big, the drink didn't do anything!"

    Why drink at all if you're making sure to drink little enough to remain sober?

    I love to drink, but if I'm going to be drinking anywhere but at home, there are no guns on me, ever.

    If I'm going out drinking, I carry pepper spray.

    Colorado treats alcohol and firearms the same as alcohol and driving...Colo. Revised Statute 18.12.106 says you can't posess a weapon when you are "under the influence" of alcohol. They define under the influence as having a BAC (blood alcohol content) of .10.

    If I'm going to the movies and want to stop at Red Robin for a burger and fries (yummy...), I will probably have a beer. Is it legal? Yes. Is it smart? YMMV..

    It's absolutely, positively, no exeptions illegal in NC. Since drinking and driving is also a no-no, that isn't really much of a problem.

    While a small amount is legal in MN I never do it.

    The only weapon I carry when I drink is a can of Sabre Mace/Tear Gas. I leave the Gun at home.

    If I am planning on drinking(rare), I don't carry. If it happens spontaneously (more rarer) the gun comes off gets unloaded, locked in the car safe and the keys given to the host or designated driver.

    No, I wouldn't drink and carry (at least nothing over a very small amount). You never know what might happen. The last thing I'd want is an incident, then for a test showing I'd had been impaired.

    I think cold medicine does more to most people that 1 beer. Does everyone here disarm every time they feel a bit of the flu coming on?
