I tell no one. Concealed means just that. It also means my neighbors don't need to know and that I do not advertise that I have guns in the house. Although here in AZ it's tough to find a house that doesn't have at least one.
A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.
I didnt have to tell my neighbors...the great old state of NY did when they called them all for our pistol permits....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now they know!!!
Please...work HARDER as MILLIONS on welfare depending on YOU !!
Our family knows and a few friends. We live out in the county so the know we have guns because we shoot a lot, no no they don't know we have our ccw.
I may be a girl, but I can protect myself!
My close freinds know, and my neighbors know to call the cops if they hear shots. That is all that I let them know.

I can only see one house from my house, and only when the leaves have fallen. We are the only two houses on our "No Outlet" road. I have know them as good friends for 40 years & we're even in the same Sunday School Class at church. I've built rifles & tuned handguns for him. When the wife thought someone was trying to break-in (husband was working swing-shift) she called me before she called 911, 'cause she knew I'd be over with a light-mounted shotgun wayyy faster than the sheriff's boys could arrive. (I waited 'till they rolled-up & told 'em where I had already looked. They thanked me & I walked home) In fact, I told the husband that if I heard ever shootin', anytime, under any circumstances & I wasn't invited to join in...I was calling the sheriff myself! So yeah, my neighbors know. But, around here, the real tiny minority are the folks who DON'T own, shoot & carry guns. It's almost cultural. Yep, Mr. President, we're still hangin'-on to our bibles & our guns 'round heah'. And I really hope you realize that any Executive Order to the contrary isn't gonna' suddenly...change our minds!
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

Most my neighbors have deduced that i pack heat. They see me unload hogs and deer in the yard to be skinned and butchered. Last year a coyote marked my truck by defecating on the cab. I put some spoiled meat and three leg hold traps in the back of the truck. Our dog woke me with her barking and i killed the coyote with a crossbow and a blunt. The neighbor had come out for her paper and saw me kill the coyote. After her referencing helpless animals in traps and execution i admitted to shooting wild hogs in traps. She does not speak to me anymore and thats ok.
Many of my neighbors know. That's ok with me though - I know they've got them too.
A lot of people shoot on their properties out here which can be frustrating since some of the people out here have no sense of firearm safety. I've got a bullet hole in the back of my house (from the someone on the street behind me is my best guess) And the neighbor a couple properties down sent a couple rounds into a building on the property in front of me (negilentially) not long ago.

Lol it's not stand your ground when there's not a bad guy in front of you!
I open carry at home all the time. Granted my property is spacious and the neighbors aren't terribly close, but if I do head over to the fence to talk to one or take the trash out, I still open carry. I've actually had a couple of the ladies on the road say they're considering a gun and ask me for some advice re picking one out. I think that's pretty cool and try to encourage based on their needs/wants, not necissarily what I like. Whenever someone tries to start talking guns with my husband his response is you need to talk to my wife, she's the one interested...
I don't advertise it on my car or with signs on my property (although I've seen some signs that I love) but I don't go out of my way to hide it either, unless I'm going into public (where I'm required by law to)
Nope. Not a peep. A few of us with the same interest know but we don't advertise.
