    Thanksgiving Carry At Dinner?

    Bad guys work on the holidays so I will be carrying as any normal.
    Will you carry on Thanksgiving dinner? OC or CC? I'm going to carry concealed IWB, don't want my mother to freak about a gun at dinner.

    Your mother doesn't know you carry?

    Absolutely! You never know when you are going to run across a really tough turkey, not to mention a bunch of bad cranberries.

    I was invited to a friends house for the holiday. SHE knows I carry but her husband is kind of gun shy. I will be OC as I usual since I will be in a house because she knows and doesnt care, the husband "was told I carry and doesnt seem to mind" so we shall see how it goes.
    As for you mother not knowing, I suggest you tell her, also HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and yours.

    No, I've never made it a point to tell her or my father that I carry everyday. I subscribe to the not everyone needs to know theory.

    I guess I just broke the "never tell" part...

    I carry everywhere legal. So does my wife, my son, my sister and my brother-in-law. There will be as many hog-legs around the table as turkey legs.

    If Thanksgiving is included in "24/7/365", then I will be carrying!

    I'll be packing my G27 as always. Sometimes it's the only thing that will make it through the dried out turkey.

    my mom doesnt know I carry either. This is due to her "there is no good reason to own a gun unless you're a BG" mentality. I will be carrying, she will not know.
