    This is incorrect. The legal limit for DUI is 0.08 BAC. The legal limit for "Possession of firearm when under influence of alcohol," is "a concentration of alcohol of 0.10 or more in his blood or breath."

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

    When Nevada lowered the limit for DUI to keep getting federal highway money they did not change the firearms law.

    In Nevada you can carry, and drink, where booze is served and it is still legal to defend yourself.

    "But if anything happens, you'll be charged with something like public endangerment with a deadly weapon." is not true in Nevada.

    This happened about two weeks ago:May 26, 2008 Winnemucca police statement on bar shootings
    Winnemucca police statement on bar shootings | www.rgj.com | Reno Gazette-Journal

    No mention of how much if any the "Reno man" may have had to drink. It was just "a justifiable homicide as outlined in Nevada Revised Statute 200.120 and 200.160."

    I love Nevada.

    I take communion while carrying. Of course, a few sips of red wine doesn't give this 400-pounder much of a buzz...

    In S.C we cant carry in any place that has on site consumption, but the law only states you can not "discharge" a firearm while under the influence.

    We take off on motorcycle rides all the time. And when we stop for lunch, we almost always order a beer with it.

    Our state just says to stay out of Bars. Restaurants are fine.

    But I should also state that I would never drink more than one or possibly two beers in an entire day, while riding, or carrying.

    I guess this is one of those that just doesn't affect me. I've had exactly one beer since receiving my License to carry.

    It's nice I don't have to avoid Bars, restaurants, and liquor stores while I have my weapon with me though.

    Maybe Ohio will continue to work there carry laws to the more sensible ones afforded to us in other states. It's a slow process and I have patience. We just got (waiting for Gov's sig) a Castle Doctrine in so its coming around.
    Thanks to all who chimed in on this....a lot of clarity came with it on the overall thought process of interpreting laws.

    when I drink I make it a point not to touch weapons because Murphy's Law is still out there! If my hunting or shooting buddies drink while handling guns they are not my friends anymore...

    In the two years that I have lived in Indiana I have only seen one a news report of a shooting at a bar. It had nothing to do with a LTCH holder.

    I carry into bars and I have a drink but I cut myself off after two since I have to drive.

    If you follow the laws of the state then I see no problems with carry in a bar. You just have to know your limits. which I do and I dont see having a problem with it.

    Now that I moved to Indianapolis I am sure we will be at the bars and downtown more and I will not leave my gun at home just because we may stop at a bar and have a drink.

    This is complete BS.

    At least in Nevada. As I posted above:

    No mention of how much if any the "Reno man" may have had to drink. It was just "a justifiable homicide as outlined in Nevada Revised Statute 200.120 and 200.160."

    As I said before, some have a personal standard...why they think their personal standard needs to be thrust on others as if better, I can never figure out.
