    See if you can find a pair of pants (like Columbia) with a zipper "security pocket" for your wallet, etc. then ankle carry your gun. Not the fastest draw, but it will be there and secure.

    Can you legally carry there, do you "want to carry" or do you feel you "need to carry"?... then go from there.

    My opinion is, if you do decide to carry, don't try out something new, especially there... do what you feel comfortable with and are use to.

    I would say that pretty well sums it up. The yes's / smartcarry have it. As previously stated, stay safe / stay alive.

    Just put a P38T, or LCP in your strong hand front pocket, and no one but you will know it is there.

    I carry IWB everywhere. I have a CTAC from CompTac and carry at the 3 o'clock position. I have learned to guide the other persons left arm when they are reaching for a hug. I ALWAYS slip my hand under their left arm thereby pushing their hand and arm above my rig. Have not been made in 5 years of carrying at Church.

    Thank you Cajun. That is one that I will definitely remember.

    +1 on SmartCarry. I teach regularly at our church and carry my .45 Kimber Ultra CDP - no one knows No problem hugging, or contact with others.

    These are all daily life issues...I see no reason to act differently because it is a religious event.

    Don't carry. If you're attacked, you can always just "turn the other cheek . . . "

    Carry, and hug using your weak side arm, letting your strong arm hang past the holster preventing the "huggee" from feeling the waepon. I've gotten past my mother-in-law's monster hugs this very way.

    If carrying at a public gathering such as religious functions, churches etc is legal, you're very lucky because in GA, that's against the law and will lead to the lose of the permit to carry... if I were legal for me, carrying would not even be thought, it would be instinctual to carry EVERYWHERE it is legal to do so.

    Carry the Sword of the Spirit and the rod of the Glock, and be well my son!

    Ankle carry if you can, you'll spot that pick pocket or as suggested smart carry.

    I don't know any of the areas you talk about but I carry everywhere. Do your best to figure out how to accommodate the problems you mention but I think the alternative of not carrying is unacceptable.

    Mass of religious people in a public area....you are stupid if you don't carry! Religious events are extremely vulnerable. I carry in my church every Sunday. I do the middle school ministry too. If the parents knew though, I would probably have quite the battle in front of me..

    Take two guns. One for 'mass transit', backup for 'downtown area'. No joke.
