    The unwritten laws of CCW

    This isnt a legal thread, but I want to hear about other peoples unwritten laws of CCW. I have my own I'll share soon enough... but what are yours?

    An example is; You must visit WalMart before your permit is valid or your holster must match your belt.
    Or on the more serious side, how about you must carry with at least one reload, or if you're going to carry a gun, a good knife is a must.

    I'm just curious about others habits or thoughts pertaining to CCW.

    You must be smart enough to always be armed yet wise enough to never need to use it.

    When carrying concealed or the topic comes up....it is better to ask for forgiveness and to beg for acceptance....

    Keep it concealed.

    1 is none, 2 is one.

    Remember no matter where you are...there's at least one gun

    yes...your holster and belt must match...sharkskin if possible

    Putting a 1911 in a plastic holster is like running a Corvette through a mud pit

    If you're doing it right, the only person who automatically knows you are carrying a gun is you.

    To unsheath your sword is to draw blood.

    My main one is - carry all the time and everywhere legal but ... ''stay outa trouble" - similar in a sense to an earlier post. Plus - be polite to everyone but - ''have a plan ...... "

    I always have a knife but most of the time when at home do not carry a reload ... that will sometimes be onboard when out and about.

    And ... carry the best gun you can afford and handle well - in the best equipment you can find, with plenty of thought to dressing around your carry..

    Always carry.

    You will never be trained enough.

    Never let your guard down.

    Watch their hands. You should look at someone's hands before you even thinking of looking at their face.

    Never sit with your back to a window or door.

    Have a plan with your wife, kids, etc if SHTF and you clear leather. You should know what they are going to do and they should know what you are going to do. Have a plan if you go down. Carrying a gun doesn't make you immortal. You might get killed in front of your family. Be prepared for them to deal with that.

    Never give up, never surrender. Die on your feet, never live on your knees.

    We practice and train and try to solve all the "WHAT IFS" we can imagine. But when the SHTF the reality is ( ck the signature )
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
