i dont understand why some people will say NEVER! EVER! tell anyone you carry. my question is what is the huge government secret. i live in louisiana so open carry is legal, and i do tell people whose house i enter i carry as the law states i must or i would be quiet about it. but i dont understand what the huge deal is. because i must tell my friends when i enter their home most of them know i carry, know why, and are invited to the range ANYTIME. the other day i had my daughter in a store and was holding her facing forward while my wife shopped for something, my daughter had an accident and i had poo all over me and her. i took her to the truck and changed her and had my shirt off with my undershirt tucked in showing my CCW. we went to my wifes work where i bought a shirt and got some new clothes for my 10mo/old and after shopping for 10 mins for my daughter some new clothes one of my wifes coworkers say "wait a sec, you have a gun?" and she got a little education on CC and not drawing attention. i dont advertise "man with gun" but i am not afraid of a friend or family member knowing my decision to carry, they all know i dont show off my weapon, and i dont bring it up in public other than with ppl at a range to exchange tips/advice when solicited on my method of carry. my decision to carry 24/7 and my persistance to not go to places where i am prohibited to carry if i can avoid them has made my brother, mother in law, father in law, 2 friends, and 1 cousin to take some more classes and get their CCW to protect their family and friends. i find the "sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs" article to be very persuasive to the why you carry question. so why is it a huge no-no to let a friend or family member know you carry? might just bring someone else to the CC side of thinking? go ahead and chastize me for the possibly dumb question but im looking for some education and maybe a line of thought i obviously havent thought about.
