I carry my firearm wherever I go.

The only time I purposely do not carry is when Im going to the Naval Base or if Im going out and suspect I will be drinking any alcohol. Otherwise ... we are pretty much married.

This one... ^^^^^^

Or when going to the post office (or a gun show), otherwise if you see me away from my home I am carrying (yes, I know you can't tell, that's the point..;)).

Any one of the several Indian Casinos that I frequent I will not carry. Post offices, gun shows, and any other Federal Buildings.

Every once in a while, I treat my G23 to a nice bubble bath.

Anything as in a glass of wine at dinner or only when you drink heavily? (assuming of course that you do)

When I'm drinking.

I would carry if I had a stinkin CCW.....but alas in Contra Costa county you must be rich and mighty generous to a certain campaign fund.

Anywhere / anytime I am legal to carry.

San Bernardino County expect us to carry once we have our permit. It is routinely brought up in their CCW classroom sessions.

Not true!

Have you actually applied or are you just making that statement based on what others have told you?

All day, every day, everywhere I go. Leave it in the car at the post office, the VA hospital, and when I shoot pool (in a bar but I NEVER drink anything stronger than a Coke). I even wear it when golfing (you never know when an off duty cop in the group behind you will draw on you if your group is too slow for his liking :2guns::shrug:).

If I am dressed, I'm armed.

But won't carry it into any area prohibited by law...Federal building, military base, etc.

Have several friends with CCWs and am surprised that most don't carry routinely. Go figure.

I've been carrying for about 60 days now whenever I leave home and have not done so on only two of those days. One day at the gun show and another day when I got a massage. ;)

I haven't been to one in years but why don't you carry at gun shows? Is it because they are on public property? Just asking.

12071.4. (a) This section shall be known, and may be cited as, the
Gun Show Enforcement and Security Act of 2000.
...
(g) No person at a gun show or event, other than security
personnel or sworn peace officers, shall possess at the same time
both a firearm and ammunition that is designed to be fired in the
firearm. Vendors having those items at the show for sale or
exhibition are exempt from this prohibition.
...
(j) All firearms carried onto the premises of a gun show or event
by members of the public shall be checked, cleared of any ammunition,
secured in a manner that prevents them from being operated, and an
identification tag or sticker shall be attached to the firearm, prior
to the person being allowed admittance to the show. The
identification tag or sticker shall state that all firearms transfers
between private parties at the show or event shall be conducted
through a licensed dealer in accordance with applicable state and
federal laws. The person possessing the firearm shall complete the
following information on the tag before it is attached to the
firearm:
(1) The gun owner's signature.
(2) The gun owner's printed name.
(3) The identification number from the gun owner's
government-issued photo identification.

I'll make the above post even shorter: it is illegal to have a firearm and ammunition for it at the same time in your possession while at a gun show unless you're LEO or Security or a vendor working at the show. Only LEO or Security working the show can have their weapons loaded.

Federal property.
The feds get their panties in a twist over it.
School property can be tricky.
Establishments where the main business is the sale of alcohol for consumption on premise; that is - bars. Restaurants with bars, no problem. Dance clubs are iffy since they normally wand you at the door (depending upon the club of course).
Airports, but I guess falls under Federal Property.

I carry every day. I avoid putting myself in situations where I might lose my CCW or my weapon. Hence, don't carry where it is illegal.

How so? CCW permit holders are exempt from the school zone laws, including universities and day cares.

My permit from Fresno County states on it "Carrying a weapon is not authorized in any National Parks, school grounds, commercial airport facility, or when the holder is under the influence of alcohol or medication/drugs."

It does not help you if you don't carry routinely.

Remember, CCW is not a shield, it's the last insurance to ensure your safety and the ones with you.

Would you pay $50 to stay out of court ... to avoid shooting someone? Would you pay $500?

I always thought it was a great idea to 'carry a false wallet' and let the perp get that while you run the otherway with family.

If you look at the old LE guys (old SWAT Operators), they've learned to avoid trouble and they live to enjoy the state retirement (about 55y/o BTW).

Just my two pennies ...
