    I abide by posted signage, whether or not it has the force of law. If I have good motivation to attend a function, and carry is prohibited, I will still attend. Absent good motivation, I won't go.

    I already talked about churches, for everything else it's situational.

    A lot of the people that I associate with don't even know that I own a gun much less carry one. So I've never had somebody invite me to their house and then ask me to come unarmed.

    My wife specifically asked me not to carry at my sister-in-law's house and I honored that until I noticed that my stepdaughter's meth head husband had a Glock hanging out of the crack of his ass. I carry at my sister-in-law's house. I don't think anybody knows and if she ever asks me not to I'll honor it.

    Other than that I abide by the concept that if I wouldn't do it without a gun I probably shouldn't do it with a gun either

    Unfortunately, Ohio law turns federal misdemeanor no-carry locations into felonies. I park off-property and leave my gun in the car when visiting the Social Security office or Post Office. The "concealed means concealed" crowd never seem to consider the possibility of a fender bender or medical emergency. Ohio is a must notify state. A fender bender in a post office parking lot would get ugly real fast. Not notifying wouldn't help because your license status is in the BMV database.

    For the past almost 30 years I have been a Unitarian Universalist, and still am in my heart. After I divorced about a year ago I decided I wanted to become active in a local UU church. To be in it for the long haul.

    When I arrived the next Sunday morning, next to the entrance door, was a large can't miss 'no weapons' sign.

    It stopped me in my tracks. It did not carry the force of law here in Alabama... so I just stood there "running the numbers" in my head trying to decide what to do. I could ignore the sign (doesn't carry the force of law), but I did not want just to visit one time I wanted to be ongoing. I wanted that church back in my life again. And above all I wanted to be honest.

    After literally standing there for several minutes with my eyes glued to the sign and thinking about what to do, I turned around and left.

    When I got home I decided to write them and explain how I felt, to see if there was an options besides leave the weapon at home. Perhaps the right person never received it because I never received a reply.

    Some years ago, some crazy person who did not like liberals burst into a Tenn Unitarian Universalist and proceeded to kill people with a shot gun. I shall never forget that.

    I did not feel safe attending a church, a liberal one at that in the deep south and protected only by a sign displayed near the door, and not having my self defense options with me.

    I have not gone back. Maybe I will email them again. Who knows, miracles happen.

    Those possibilities are what ultimately led to the personal philosophy I have adopted. If an optional event is going to be at a felony carry zone, I simply don't attend.

    In most cases I am not willing to disarm. In Missouri we can generally ignore "no guns" signs signs and I do. If caught the consequences are minor.

    We have dear relatives in Illinois and New York where 2A rights are not respected, so the guns stay home when we go visit.

    Gun or no gun I just don't seem to need to go places that are off limits. I bank in another state, I don't go to bars,I don't do crowds except rodeos and fairground events which here are allowed and I never have a reason to be in a post office. I had to go in to pick up my permit once in the last 4 years and that is it. Even car registration is done by mail. I very rarely even think about disarming.

    I'm in gun-free Maryland several times each year to visit family, so I do disarm there.

    As far as I could tell, it would've been legal for me to carry into the non-sterile area of DIA to pick up family members but it seemed like it was one of those "iffy" situations so I didn't carry into the airport. There was a sign at DIA that stated that only authorized people can carry into the airport and handgunlaw.us stated that concealed handgun permit holders were allowed to legally carry in the non-sterile areas but I took the "safe" course. Some of the gun laws are a matter of interpretation. I avoid most GFZ's but there are some where I have no choice but to disarm. But, the more times one has to disarm and rearm the greater the chances of shooting oneself.

    Bank, post office, doctor's offices, any courthouse or "official" stuff like DMV. That's about it. Other than that I can carry legally most anyplace I go to.

    My wife's sister lives in MA; they know we are not driving to their house because our permits are not valid in MA.
    For get togethers they come here or meet us in a neighboring state like WV, split the cost of renting a cabin.
    They disagree with us on guns, politics, religion, ... so, conversation is typically restrained to food, our kids, our dogs, activities.
    They don't own a gun, but have jokingly said if a zombie apocalypse occurs they are coming to our house.

    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    My mother-in-law is in a memory care facility in Olney, and my sisters-in-laws and their families live in the Rockville/Silver Spring areas. Nieces and nephew are still in school. The adults all work. We stay at one SIL's home when we visit. They are all hard-left, never-Trumpers but we have figured out how to make it all work in the last twenty-some years. Our trips to see my wife's mother will be ending in the very foreseeable future, which will cut down on the visits in general.

    My wife & her sister want our kids (now teenagers) to get together cause family.
    My wife's (and her sister's) dad lives in our town, so visits here are for her (and her kid) to see her dad /kid's grandad. (He is mid 70's)
    We are getting close to 3.5 years from moving to FL, as soon as our youngest graduates HS, wife's dad has already agreed to move where we are going.
    We have been vacationing in the same town for 20 years, told the kids we are moving there since they were in 4th grade. The only thing keeping us where we are now is letting our kids finish HS with their friends, they are in a good school and make good grades; if our boys were ready we could (would) move at the end of the school year, but we won't force it.
    Once I'm there (FL) I aint leaving, excepting imminent death from a hurricane; wife's sister can come visit us, or not.
