EDC - Are you a TRUE BELIEVER?

Are there some instances in which you leave it behind due to the nature of the place you are at when away from home...or the polar opposite, places you simply wont go without old faithful.
I guess my goal is, to see how many people are TRUE BELIEVERS and how many are not (90-100% would be true believers that dont leave home without it) and the lower percentages those who enjoy the industry, sport, and hobby but dont feel it'd be necessary to carry outside of the home.
Im also wandering if those who do carry more often then not have more situational awareness (SheepDog Concept) so they can 1) avoid trouble before having to unholster their weapon or 2) if they cannot avoid it, they can do something about it until proper LEO arrives.
Take care, Dave

I believe you carry everyday or don't bother carrying at all.

Unless I'm somewhere where it's illegal, I carry.

I have disarmed only twice in more than the past five years. Once when attending the Glock armorers course and once to goto the state DPS office to renew my permit for another five years. That is all.

So I guess I am a "true believer".

Amen. That goes for blades, too--if I don't have a firearm with me (for legal reasons...) However, I've usually got both with me at all times.

Same here. I'm carrying my G23 right now. When I work out, my G26 is in a fanny pack hanging on the handlebars of the exercise bike.

If I'm working outside doing something that will make me sweat, I'm wearing the fanny pack.

Safe zones...right.

I hear that (the laziness part) a lot at work. It disgusts me.

Same here

I even carry at work where it is against company policy. They don't know and I'm not telling

You either carry or you don't - there is no middle ground!
