    Yes, in Oregon. Screw it up, though, then you'll get what you get. As it should be.

    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.

    .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.

    As you can tell by the myriad of responses, it varies from state to state. In NH you can carry where alcohol is served. Not advisable to be drinking while carrying, but not illegal in NH.

    TerriLi,

    Can you give us some more details than this?

    What were the circumstances?
    What was the individual charged with?

    You mention it was thrown out (or found not guilty, I forget which you said). Why?

    Help.

    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.

    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
    YES
    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.

    Best,

    retsupt99 is correct.

    Don't know who wrote that law, but it beats a lot of other states.

    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.



    Ever.

    Drinking and certain things just do not belong together. Drinking and driving, drinking and operating a chain saw, drinking and heavy machinery, drinking and working on high steel, AND drinking and CCW.

    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

    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...
