This is a real issue for me because when I really need it--when I go to pick up the grandkids after work--I have to put on my IWB at work or before I go to work and wear it empty. This also requires me to find a place to stop after I leave post, collect my pistol from my trunk in public, load it with the mag inside the passenger compartment, then unbutton my shirt in my car and stuff my pistol through my shirt into the IWB. What a pain in the arse. I have heard about others who just plain carry all the time on post--but I wonder what the penalty might be if caught printing. I sure don't want to lose my retirement check! :O

    When I'm off work I carry 100% of the time unless I don't leave the house.

    Me too - I work on a military base. It's a pain in the butt to disarm, but I, too, am expecting a nice retirement some day...

    Some may laugh, but several years ago around here, a guy was out mowing his lawn. Another guy drove up in a pickup, got out yelling and screaming something about the other guy (the mower) sleeping with his wife. Heated words were exchanged, and the guy mowing his yard was shot dead. Turned out to be mistaken identity, the shooter had the wrong house.

    After that, a LOT of locals were known to carry while working in their yard. Can't say I always do, depends on how "physical" I'm getting or if I'm crawling around. But I do sometimes.

    I carry whenever legal. I can't carry in church and I can't carry at work but otherwise I carry even while at home.

    Everywhere it's legal 24/7...the other places I try to avoid as much as possible, except for church.
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    Everytime I leave the house. And most of the time, in the house, or right next to me.
