Here in Nevada you can be a CCW permittee and go to a bar. There is a provision for permitees who do not exceed the .10 limit all the same. They always recommend that if you are carrying a firearm that you should not be drinking alcohol. Wise advise.

Yes in maine just dont o over the legal limit .08 i believe
.02 limit for Concealed Carry in Michigan
No limit for Open Carry although Michigan has a "catch all" law and it states "under the influence" which has no amount attached to it. Therefore .000001% could get you busted and convicted if the LEO and judge/jury feels you were under the influence of alcohol.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Why would you want to drink while carrying a gun? I do not want anything to impare my judgement or reactions if I'm forced to take defensive action.

Umm, maybe because criminals dont care where they commit crimes or take innocent lives.No, and why would you?

It will vary from state to state. This is what I found on Handgunlaw.us for NH:
Carry in Restaurants That Serve Alcohol
Note: What is defined as carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol is a place like Friday’s or Red Lobster. This does not mean a bar or the bar area of a restaurant.
In NM you cannot carry any place where alcohol is served for consumption on the premises.
retsupt99 is correct. Florida law is very clear on that as is Jon Gutmatcher's book. Even transitting the bar area enroute to the rest room from the dining area is a violation although unlikely to be enforced by anyone.....whose's gonna stop you when just just have to go?
Depends on your state's laws but in my opinion, drinking any amount and carrying a gun, or driving a car, do not mix and should never be done together. Ever.

Screw what the law says...Think about what you tell a jury after you shoot somebody in SD, when you were under the influence of alcohol. Not a good idea ever. I slowly have all but quit drinking because I am alomst always carrying.

Legal in Pennsylvania. Having said that, I never drink anything to excess, and always have something to eat while having a drink...and stop the booze and drink water or coffee at least an hour before getting behind the wheel of my truck.
And I NEVER drink while riding my Harley...NEVER !!
Guess that's why I've lived to 54 and never had a DUI...
