    Body armor and steel toed boots are a must for these post TG combat zones.

    I'm only half joking.

    I think the BGs will probably stay home tomorrow also!

    Seriously, make double sure your carry is secure and keep your eyes open.
    If it ain't posted, carry. (some states the post doesn't mean anything).

    As long as it isn't posted I'd go for it. If your carrying concealed they will never know, but even if they do realize it, the most they are going to be able to do is ask you to leave.

    You are a brave man to venture out shopping on that day!
    Its good you are going with her - dont' know about toys-r-us, but definitely carry everywhere u can. The parking lots alone are of enough concern this time of year. Your wife will be in good company tomorrow I think.

    Just out of curiosity, why would tomorrow be any different than any other day? I pretty much carry everywhere i go unless it is posted not to. Why would tomorrow be a problem carrying? It seems to me that with all the crowds tomorrow, your carrying would be less likely to be noticed than on a normal day. As far as carrying goes, for me, tomorrow would just be another day as usual.

    I'd just "get sick". I'm not going anywhere.

    To answer your question, it no different than any other day, but I would think its more important to carry.

    Cool

    Carry concealed and secure, and enjoy the "quality"time with the Wife. Even if signs are posted (up to your descretion), if no one sees your weapon then no one will know.

    Look at the back of your CPL, those are the places you CAN NOT carry. Signs in our great state for no carry are just someplace you should not spend money at, legaly if you carry into a posted business they can ask you to leave, if you refuse you are guilty of trespassing. Keep it concealed and don't worry about it.

    Stay home and avoid the mob scene! When you do go shopping, don't spend a dime at places that have those 'no guns' signs.

    I would rather have my baton on a day like this to keep the people from running me over LOL. just kidding I think target is good and as I always say if in doubt make sure it's good and hid. With as many people rushing through those dores i don't think you have to worry about being make. You possible haveing a gun is the last thing on shoppers minds it's the good deals RIGHT!!!!!!


    oh P.S. I'll be packing the glock 23

    I think you might be better off with a cattle prod instead of your pistol.

    For the life of me, I can not understand the desire some people have to be out in the herd of sheep tugging over objects of desire on a day they dubbed "Black Friday". Is it for the adrenalin rush of the hunt or is it the need to be around others? In my 55 years here I have never participated in such an event nor will I ever...just like some of you, I will be home, and armed.
