Haven't forgotten the CCW. Have forgotten something else important though. Maybe twice in the last couple of years I've been on the way to work when I get a call from my wife... "are you missing something? You left your permit at home on the bed". Crap. Secure gun within car so that it's legal w/o CWP.
After the second time I adjusted my getting ready routine to make extra extra sure that if I leave with a CCW that I have the permit also (2nd degree misdemeanor in FL IIRC for carrying w/o the permit on you). I can imagine the panicked feeling of suddenly realizing the CCW is not on you, where is it? Once or twice I've mistakenly thought I left a piece at the range and it's not a good feeling.

Where self preservation is concerned, if you're not cheating, your not trying...
Not yet, i put it on just like my cell ph.
I cannot take a weapon to school, but as soon as I arrive home, it's back to IWB...if I take a late afternoon nap, the Kimber stays on...don't even know it's there.
I never leave home without it, I have had to return to the house to get my wallet, but not my weapon...
Stay armed...stay safe!

Keys, phone, lunch, gun. Yep, I'm ready for my day.
I literally say that to myself almost every day when I touch the door knob to leave in the morning. I went goose hunting, then rabbit hunting this weekend and wondered "Why aren't I carrying right now?" I generally carry when I hunt but this weekend it was like it slipped my mind.
Maybe I should just stick to #1 weapon, so I don't experience any varying weights. That way I know it's there...or not.
I think I have too many options in regards to possible weapons....perhaps a garage sale?
Yeah, that'll happen.

I carry two guns, but have accidently left the house with one left behind.
I hate it when that happens.
I use to leave the Walther PPKs in an IWB clip holster in the center consol of the truck. But some BG’s stated breaking in cars, in our area so I had to bring it in the house resulting in me having to remember.
So what I did was to make it part of my getting dress regiment.
I have a NAA 25 magnum, P3 AT 380, G19 and Walther PPKs 380 in my top dresser drawer. Based upon where I’m headed I pick out the gun first, and then I pick out my clothing based upon which gun I am going to carry.
It then stays in my pocket or holster until I’m back home for the night.
Getting old sucks and the say memory is the second thing to go
I don't usually carry around my house...so yes I have forgot before...jumped in truck to get a gallon of milk or something like that at the corner store...but boy does it feel strange to not have it.
--people ask why I carry, and I show them this picture. I think it says it all.--

One of the advantages of pocket carry....When I put change in one pocket, my carry goes in the other pocket....

I haven't accidentally left home without my EDC on, but once I forgot to take it off. I was in a place that I had decided I would not carry. While it was not illegal (not posted, not a legislated gun-free zone, etc.) it could have been embarrassing (at least) if someone had known I was carrying so I had made a conscious decision not to carry there. This time, I pretended I needed to go back to the car and locked it up there. It scared me mostly because it could have happened at one of the "verboten" locations, like church.
I carry most of the time, even though the laws make it inconvenient most days. As I leave the house I have my keys, cell phone, gun status check. I have started doing that check before I get out of my car at each location to make sure that I wear it where I should and don't wear it where I shouldn't.
