That’s a slippery slope.

You best not drink as you will have it with you in the car after dinner and having consumed alcohol, it may not fare too well if a LEO were to pull you over.

Just carry as you would and drink at home.

It isn’t black and white.

Wisdom says don’t drink.

Some places - bars - are off limits.

We know of cases where a CCW holder was drinking, had An Event, and was ruled to be carrying with a (temporarily) invalid license due to the drinking.

What’s the cutoff? I’d guess BAC of .08, just like driving, but that may be up to your issuing agency.

One of the many positive things about Nevada is CCW is not a problem below .08 BAC.
Frankly, if you cannot be trusted with your CCW at .08, you probably could not be trusted at all.

Get a pistol safe for the car, cabled to something fixed to the car. If you go to dinner and you intend on drinking alcohol with dinner, lock it up in the lock box before you head into the restaurant. If you drank alcohol, leave it in the lock box on your drive home. If you really want to remain armed … don’t drink.

Your IA didn't cover this? Your IA's opinion is really the only one that means much, so why poll the audience?

Why is it so hard not to drink when carrying and/or driving?

If you even have to ask how to store your firearm while you have a drink but don't realize that you're going to be driving, then just maybe you have some problem of which you are unaware.

Don't drink and drive/carry. How hard can it be?

To heck with what the IA says, just think past the booze.

^^^This right here. What's more important? Rhetorical question. I think we all know the answer.
