    I just open carry as part of the costume, and it doesn't scare the sheep.

    I just take my kids to a Trunk or Treat at our church. Members line their cars up in the parting lot trunk out, put out a few decorations, and pass out wrapped candy only. The trick or treating gets done in about 30 minutes where we are only going to families we know in a well lit area. No walking up to unknown strangers or houses and asking for candy.
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

    Yep, just another day so will carry as usual.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Yes Sir!

    Already spoke to wife about plan. Since it falls on a Sat (no work that day to cause a late start), were going to get out early and hit it. Since we only go to the neighbors we associate with (those are the one's whose children also play with our children in the cul-de-sac), we should be done early. Depending on the time, might drive to the mall and walk around and let the shorties get more candy for Daddy…I mean for them! We do have an unwritten rule…that Daddy has to taste… I mean inspect ALL candy before any is eaten!

    My joy is watching my 5yr, 3yr, and 10mth, smile and have fun. But you best believe I will have a +P treat for anybody who attempts to take that smile away!

    Be safe…and remember it's for the kids!

    I'd like to see you tell that to my 2 year old.

    Seriously though, we know most of the people in our neighborhood (we don't live in Crackville, USA either). My neighbor and I both carry daily and will both be with our kids as a group when we get started.

    My wife and In-Laws will be manning the front foor and my wife will have the .45 at the house.

    hmm, a question popped into my head on this one, If I escorted the kids in costume, "Great granpa's WWI uniform, yeah it's still in good shape" would the flap holster be considered concealed? or would I have to use a dummy gun in it, while wearing a concealed tuckable? If I dress up, I'm planning on the second just to be cautious. but thoughts anyone?

    I'll carry an extra magazine for my XD(M), that way I'll have 49 rounds available for the zombies...

    I have to work part of that evening, and while I am at work I carry.
    And when I get home, when I answer the door I carry OWB with a t-**** verily covering.

    I will be armed everywhere I go everyday as always... unless prohibited by law!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    yeah, may have to load up my BUG with some winchester silvertips

    in years past when not working, I'd dress up in my camo gear head to toe, face paint and all and spring up out of the shrubs/grass by the front door scaring the living crap outta folks, they'd look right at me and not know I was there 6 feet away

    My kids are grown and my grandson isn't old enough yet, but I always carried in the past, and plan to in the future.

    Trunk or Treat is definitely the way to go, and what my kid will do one day!
