    I agree with CW9MM's perspective. I will always listen to Mom's (and Dad's) counsel, but in the end the decision is mine.

    This tells us that he is not holding the ladies close enough.

    Do what your Mom tells you, but later stick her in really bad old folks home.

    Wednesday was my Mother's 77th birthday. I really do not know how many more she will have if any but I doubt very many. If she tells me to take my gun off in her presence I will do it without hesitation even though right now I can't be sure she even knows what a gun is.

    My mom's 85. My days of visiting her are almost over. I'll disarm if she wants me to.

    I should consider myself lucky...

    My father currently holds a CCW, and my mother has applied and qualified, just waiting for it to arrive. Both are active NRA members, and both are also heavily involved in SASS. My mom was happy when I told her that I was getting my CCW.

    Where it's legal, I carry. Noone is going to tell me different because they aren't going to know - that's why it's called "concealed" - and that includes my dear mother.

    When I told my mom that I was getting my CCW and planned to carry everywhere I legally could, she freaked out. She isn't as much worried about it being dangerous or somehow bad, but more that if I am discovered everyone in this area will think I am a criminal or a terrorist. She's probably correct on that point, so I suppose I have to be extra careful!

    It's good to know that other people in this area do carry. When I applied for my permit, I was the 4th person that day that had done it! And, this is in a county of 200,000 people. Not too bad at all for a place that is usually described as the "People's Republic of Arlington".

    My Mom carried long before there were any such things as concealed carry licenses. She said, "there's nothing more illegal than being dead".
    The Edge ... there's no honest way to describe it. The only ones who know where it is have gone over.

    I carry around my 85-year-old Mom. She told me that I "don't need those around here" but she didn't demand I take it off. I didn't bother to explain that she was incorrect, just kept it to myself.

    Just lost my sister 3 weeks ago (age 59!) and probably won't have my mom too many more years.

    Appreciate 'em while you got 'em.

    Now you understand what goood lead is in dancing a man who can keep the woman in control gracefully. The only time a women would feel your gun is in a cuddle position. Ballroom dancing is how I met my wife.

    My mom died from cancer in 97, before I started carrying concealed. But she was the kind of woman that I feel would not have had a problem with it. She lived alone from the day my dad died in 79 until her death. She kept his old Ithaca 16 gauge double, loaded with #1 buck by her bed and my dad's old Colt Detective special(now my summer carry gun) in the nightstand, also loaded.

    It's not a subject that has ever come up. I don't think it's ever occured to her to question me about it. Unless your parents (or anyone for that matter) see the pistol, why would it even be a subject for discussion?
