    is there anyplace you DON'T carry?
    The only places I don't carry are those places I am not allowed to carry by law in my state. I always carry everywhere else, plain and simple. CC is not a part time opportunity. Those who possess a CC permit should fully indulge themselves in the meaning and what it entails. Anyone who carries concealed with a permit should carry concealed at all times according to their local laws. Anyone who CCs should know their local laws and abide by them. I fully support our 2nd amendment rights, and in so doing, I feel there is no middle ground. If you want to consider yourself a concealed carrier, met the criteria, downed yourself a permit and gone through all of the red tape......why would anyone want to think that it's a part time or just whenever you feel like it routine? CC has principles behind it, and words and wisdom to back it even if our present government decides to ignore it and written into this country's basic foundation of principles so long ago. I personally think nothing less of those just testing the waters for whatever means. We all have the right.......thing is, I get confused about those who would simply want a permit....obtain it...and then decide to use it whenever they feel the time is right. It should be a core value for one to abide by, and carry all of the time according to dictated laws and their area. Most of us (by law) are paying for these rights already spelled out in the constitution. As a paying customer (as if they didn't already tax me for being alive and making a living), I'm going to get everything available (under domination). In short...use your CC permit to the fullest extent of what's available IMO. If you don't, you're only kidding yourself, and spitting on the graves of those whom have made it a possibility that we can do what we do today to protect ourselves, and support our country for what it should be despite all of those who would attack us and our principles foreign and domestic. Don't let your mind weaken the cause. I'm just saying....it's time to take back America for ourselves and let nothing get in the way. Teamwork. I've always heard the concept....I'd like to try and implement it......but I (we) need the rest of the team to support it before we go on. Always carry.

    Most every place I go, if carry is prohibited I don't need to be there anyway.

    I don't carry in church, and a friend of mine's house. I carry every place else I legally can

    maybe a pelican case could work?

    ziplock bags arent 100% water proof...though they like to believe it =].

    The man is right! If you want a drink, leave the gun - liquor and guns don't mix. I am also from Minnesota, but liquor and guns don't mix in any state.

Some guys like their drinks. Matter of fact, I know that there's plenty of beer guys on DC and I'm one of them. (I'm distracting the Thread I know). But I can't see a reason to poke him in the eye for behaving responsibly in light of not carrying. Personal decision. I think this is still America. Better for all of us if he knocks back 8 beers and CC's?
    Exactly! It's made very clear in TX CHL classes, if you are going to drink, you don't carry. (also +1 for beer)

    Excluding all of those obvious places, I carry 24/7.

    I've a gun right next to me while taking a shower and rely on my German Shepherds to tell me if I need to go for my shotgun.

    I don't go anywhere without my guns. No guns, no go.

    Such is life.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
