    How many people know you carry?

    My wife is the only person that knows I carry a firearm. I see no reason to share the information with anybody else. As I use a Smart Carry holster, the chances of anybody else knowing I carry is extremely unlikely.

    How many people know you carry, either via your sharing this information or them by discovering it on their own?

    I listed three. Knowing my my o'l lady likely more, but don't know for sure. You know how women love to talk, and as much as I may like to, I can't count that out. I'm also guessing maybe one 'wet behind the ears' sheriff's deputy knows as well. I carry 24/7 with one compromise. At work.

    3 know THAT I CARRY AT TIMES....spouse, best friend and youngest brother.

    Only spouse ever knows that I am carrying at any given time and then she sometimes does not know.

    I carried almost 100% in the big city which has the highest (or close to it) violent crime rate in the PNW ... retired to a small town with little crime and carry about 25%.

    My wife, daughter, mother.

    Many people who work in the county courthouse who see me filling up the lockbox in the lobby on my way into the secured portion of the courthouse.

    Wife, four kids, parents, my brother and about 10-12 other people that all carry themselves, am glad I do or simply don't care. I don't broadcast it but I also don't hide it from those I know and trust. Above all else, though, I don't get friendly with those that are not "gun friendly" or would spread it around for no reason. If somebody does find out that I do that has an objection, they can "pee up a rope" as far as I am concerned....

    I misread the question and voted incorrectly. I often carry openly, so... many.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    My wife and I...4-5 others at work (not at work, but from work...it's a school)...no other relatives...they (the relatives) all think I'm a 'gun nut'...and they are all 1200 miles away.

    Stay armed... the relatives...stay safe!

    Somewhere on the high side of 30,000, not counting this forum. Being a firearms instructor and lobbying on behalf of pro-rights laws has some disadvantages.
