    Carry while drinking alcohol at home

    This is something I personally would not do, but I don't have my gun surgically attached to me like some of you

    I'm not talking about the one beer or glass of wine with dinner. But for instance, if you had or went to a private party, what would you do? Even if you had no intention of becoming inebriated, one drink always has the potential for becoming 6 or 7 (or more....). We would all like to think we have control even when we have a few, but given the possible horrible consequences, what would you do?

    If I'm going to drink, I'll leave my gun at home or locked in my truck. I hardly drink anymore, so it's really not an issue for me.

    When I was an LEO and we would go out and "have a few", we always left the guns behind. No point in tempting fate.

    i don't drink but,having alcohol on your breath while carrying in Texas is not a good idea.

    Alcohol on your breath while carrying is not good anywhere.

    If you value your right to carry, you will avoid that.

    Alcohol has a way of impairing good rational thought,I've seen some nice guys once they have a couple drinks turn into anger management poster children.I haven't drank an alcoholic beverage in over 17 years,life is much better that way

    I suppose this was stupid question to ask, but first, I was referring to in the house only, not carry in public. Second, some here have made it a point to say they carry at ALL times, up to the point of going to sleep at night. Do you just remain 'vulnerable' while you drink, or do you do something else as a backup?

    I made the decision to not drink at all a couple of years ago. That was reinforced this past summer when I got my CC license. Even at home, I wouldn't because if I was invovled in a defense shooting. That one drink could become something a prosecutor could hold on to and tell a jury.
    I want to make sure there is no question whether I was sober or not.
    Now if I "did" have a drink. I wouldn't drink more than one.
    Just my two cents.

    Well, I'm a beer and wine drinker.

    At home, I have a gun in just about every room.

    If someone breaks in, I'm still going to shoot them.

    I figure like this......

    I always know who I'm expecting.

    Living in Cleveland, I'll answer the door....I hope i know ya!~

    If not, I'll let you know............

    Not a dumb question at all... I seldom carry at home. If I chose to have a drink in my home, so what. I'm in the privacy of my own home. The only person who has to worry is a "home invader" with poor decision making skills.

    I agree with this. I might tie one on once in a while but only at home. I dont drink much at all except a few beers at night maybe once or twice a week and maybe 4 beers on a sunday. I only do this at home.

    Moderation is the rule and not the exception.

    Good to see another player on the board too!

    I rarely carry at home. If someone breaks into my place, after I've had a few or not, they'll be dealing with four dogs, an alarm screaming in their ears, and a spray of one of several canisters of pepper spray stored around the house.
