    Illegal in Ga.

    I wouldn't do it if it was legal.
    Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    To make it more clear for UT. You can carry and drink in a bar as long as you are not above the legal limit. Very bad idea. Not me.

    Though it's legal where I live... I personally will NEVER mix drinking with carrying a weapon.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Legal or not, it is a bad idea. Maybe the 'designated driver' idea could be applied to concealed carry.

    Even if it is legal in your state, I wouldn't advise it.

    I'll have a beer with dinner but it depends what I'm eating. Beer doesn't go with everything, ya know.
    For those that feel impaired after a beer with dinner, it's probably good that you don't.
    Now if I was to go out to a bar, drinking, then I'd have to leave them at home.

    Illegal here in Washington State to carry in a bar where people under 21 are not allowed. Well, apparently unless you are a police officer:

    Native American Times - Spokane police to probe into case of acquitted cop

    A Spokane, WA police officer was off duty, drinking, carrying a Glock, got into some sort of drunk altercation with another drunk patron (over a ride home or stealing truck?), followed him, failed to call 911, shot the patron (he lived), left the scene without calling 911, was tried and ACQUITTED of any reckless behavior! The county even had to pay his lawyers fees...

    I call B.S. on this. Can anyone cite a case where an otherwise good SD shoot lead to this kind of problem because the legal firearm carrier had consumed an adult beverage?

    IMHO a good shoot is a good shoot based on the facts of the need to shoot and the law of the location this happens in.

    Oh, as stated previously, perfectly legal to carry and have a drink in Nevada (in a bar, restaurant, casino, whorehouse (they are legal in parts of Nevada), etc.).

    As to why would I want to drink while carrying a gun? Why would I want to be unable to protect myself just because I was having a glass of wine with my meal? So it becomes would I want to carry my gun while I was having a drink. My answer is yes I would.

    Yeah, what he said. Legal or not, bad idea. Gun goes in the safe before a drink goes in the hand. IMHO

    Getting back to the original question, CAN you drink in NH while carrying a gun? The answer is YES you can. Should you? I'll leave that to you to decide. Plenty of posts in this thread that will give you something to think about.

    We could make one the 'designated shooter'?

    Now see...you and I could have dinner the same way. Not often, but ocassionally I may have a draft with a full meal. It has no effect, no buzz, no problems. It's not like it a regular thing either...actually, I don't really drink much anyway. I just don't let my sidearm dictate if a cold glass of beer with a full meal is going to happen...if that's what makes the 'steak and shrimp go down a little better, I don't see a problem.

    Ditto...or a glass of wine. Point being...some do not know their limits.

    Regardless...no steak offer necessary :))
