    Yea, was funny when my dad saw me putting the guns up to go swimming. He asked how many guns I needed to make the 2 mile trip from my house to his. Said never know but I hope I had enought.
    Only time they don't go is if we are going to be drinking, but I usually do that at home.

    If going out yes. I wouldn't go to someone's home socially where I felt I needed to carry a gun.

    I carried at my own wedding wearing a tuxedo. Surprising how well a G17 can conceal under a jacket.

    If you voluntarily go places you think you will need your gun, you need to rethink where you go. Carrying a gun is a precaution against the unpredictable. I try to practice the 4 stupids rule when I decide where I'm going. (Don't go stupid places at stupid times to do stupid things with stupid people) But I always carry unless prohibited by law.

    Agreed. If I knew when and where crime was going to occur and I would need to use my gun to defend myself, I wouldn't go there and I'd make a whole lot of money as a consultant for the police department... :)

    I do not carry a firearm into other peoples homes, on park rides or in church. Other than that, I usually do.

    I have been going to places where it wasn't even a question of whether I might need a gun but that a gun was going to be in my hand(s) as I get out of the car for more than three decades now.

    I agree that if it is not mandated one should not go to places where one thinks one might need a gun. In a social setting or for that matter if I elect to go out somewhere for dinner by myself, I have no complete control over who else may enter a business after I am there. However there is a substantial difference in the potential quality of people one may run into in places to which the public is invited and in private homes with people who choose their friends wisely.
