    I carry every where I can, I will admitt that I don't carry in the shower. (That however is the only reason I could see to have a Glock, Glock on a rope. I wouldn't think of submitting any thing else to such infamy). When I shower my EDC is within reach on the counter.

    Glock on a rope...I think that can be had....I'll send you the picture when I find it. No...it can't be found in the Avon catalog.

    In addition, if I had an employer that did not allow firearms, I would honor that request. I don't like it, but I would honor it.

    At home, there is always a gun handy, but not always on me.

    I work in a flour mill. So even if I could carry at work(no guns at work supposedly, but they don't care as long as they stay in the parking lot), I wouldn't. I get covered in flour and spices everyday at work, and even with my Glock, I wouldn't want all that stuff in there. I do always have a gun in the truck, and if I go anywhere before or after work, I'm carrying. Then I carry on weekends.

    If I am vertical and/or clothed it is on me. If I am in any other position (shower, etc, get your mind out of the gutter) it only a few steps away.

    Yes, and since I am in SW FL, I agree with David in FL. Depending on where I intend to go, it's either my para carry 9 LDA or my Smith 642.

    I carry on my person (almost) always.
    If a person beyond my door and four walls sees me then I'm most probably carrying something.

    Whenever possible. Mag + 1. Funny enough, I just returned from the doctors office. No legal issues here in Florida. I wasn't sure where the exam would lead but figured I would play it by hear. I have an inguinal hernia repair that is hurting. He started the exam with me sitting, pants unbuttoned. He asked me to stand. I had to ask if it was ok it I placed my pistol in the chair. No problem. My weapon was on top of his notepad. He wanted to give me a nerve block so he went after the nurse. I could hear him in the hallway "just giving you a heads up so you aren't surprised". Gave me the shots, re-holstered and on the way. He asked if I was LE and I said no, just self defense. He acknowledged "ah self defense" in a agreeable tone.

    I'm not admitting to anything but my employer doesn't allow firearms either. BUT, if the SHTF here, I wouldn't be cowering under my desk wishing I had my firearm with me.

    Unless I am someplace it is not allowed I am armed.

    If I'm not in at work, then I have a sidearm IWB...always!
    If I'm cutting grass in gym shorts...then it may just be a .380 in the pocket.

    Stay armed...always...stay safe!
