Know the FL gun laws.
Keep the intoxication rituals for the homefront...you'll learn to do that eventually anyway, why not learn early?

In FL (the state for the OP), you would have committed a crime.

Are you doing this before or after you've been drinking? If after, I think you are putting everyone around you in danger by manipulating a loaded firearm while intoxicated.

I would think the number would be more like 99% of self-defense claims fail. I know several defense attorneys and they all joke about how everyone of their clients (court appointed mostly) facing a murder charge claims self-defense.

+1. You are in a much safer environment this way too.

I do this before I start drinking so I do not have to do it after, if for some reason I did wait till after....I would have my fiance do it. I know it may sound oxymoronish, but I AM trying to be as safe as possible. I just don't want to have to leave it at home, when home is a 45-1hr ride on a 2 lane road with no lights....no anything. Thanks for everyone's feedback

Let me elaborate... At this time, I had consumed one mixed drink of medium strength on an empty stomach. I decided at that time I would like to continue having a few.

Even with the little amount I consumed. Much like claybreak0, taking it home was out of the question. We were over an hour from home.
