    If there is no legal reason to not carry - I personally would, unless of course you know for sure that the co-worker or his family have indicated against such - and then it would be down to respecting their wishes.

    Much otherwise is down to your conscience I guess - but as ever, concealed is concealed and if no laws broken it must be finally your decision.

    Only my coupla cents.

    As long as it is concealed I would not see a problem with it.

    Always carry when legal. This is considered always.

    No reason not to if it is legal and not against the family's wishes.

    If you can guard against hugs then I would. I would think pocket carry would be more "hug-safe" than hip carry.

    Why not ?? Just be careful of how you embrace people, to avoid having the gun press against them.

    Carry and just go low if anyone swoops in for a hug.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    If it is legal then yes. As others have said concealed is concealed.
