No, I have not been asked.

I believe that my conscious mind-set of being "as gray as possible" (ie. working to NOT draw any attention and blend into my surroundings) is the big reason that I have had good results.

I actually think about whether anything I'm wearing or may be doing would attract attention from casual passersby before I go out in CCW mode.

Nope, and if someone did they wouldn't get an answer anyway. Kind of like asking me how much money I make....none of their business, IMO.

I was overheard talking about guns with another mom at the kids' football practice last season. We were talking about what was coming out that we were excited about, what we like, etc (she's the only other female I know who's into guns) After she walked away back to her son's team, one of the dad's from mine walked up and asked if I carry. Not sure where he was going with it I simply said that I have my permit. He then went on to say he's been encouraging his wife to get hers and can't make any headway. So then yeah, I fessed up that I carry everywhere allowed by law and we kind of talked about how I came around to being a "gun gal". I also said I won't push her to get her permit, as I feel that's a very personal decision, but if she ever wanted to go to ladies day at the range I'd be happy to accompany her.

Never been asked, however I have been advised to get my CCW from "caring" friends. Little did they know, and still don't know.

My wife would never ask...she just has to look to see if I'm wearing pants.:yup:

We have some friends who would never want to have a gun around (they're entitled to their thinking), but when we go out for dinner and have to walk a ways through the downtown area, I have had the friend's wife ask, "Do you have your gun with you?"...and I reply, "Yes, like I always do.", and she'll say, "Good!".
Funny how some people don't want anything to do with a firearm, but feel comfortable when 'at times', there is one around.

Yes. I was asking a good friend at church if he had a carry permit (we were the only two in the room at the time). He didn't. He asked me if I did, and I told him "yes." He said, "Are you carrying a gun right now?" I said, "yes." He said, "That's good!"

Only by my kids, my wife assumes I am.
Other than them^, I've never been asked; I guess I've never given anyone a reason to ask.
