    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.
    I don't know about your state.

    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.

    Can you tell me where that stat comes from?

    As a Certified Instructor for Minnesota Carry Permit, NRA Pistol and Personal Protection Insrtuctor and Utah Permit Certified Instructor you must have a source for that statistic and I like to learn more about why such a high percentage fail.

    Ken
    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.

    If you throw out all of the frivolous SD claims, then the number probably looks a lot more rational to us.

    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.

    My friend, who was stone sober as he was also the designated driver, and I stepped away from the group. The only time I handled the firearm was after the gun was "cleared". I lifted my windbreaker, he retrieved my firearm, removed the magazine and chambered round, then handed the gun back to me so I could re-holster it. Under no circumstances would I handle it myself. 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.
