    Just CCW your handgun. You never know when you'll need it. A gang of thieves could do a home invasion during the dinner. :shocked:

    Studies have shown that a good glass of wine and a hug deter thieves.

    Not only do I carry to parties but also carry at Church. If I am dressed my G 22 is on my side. The only time it is more than arms leangth away is if I am in the shower.

    I carried my S&W 442 on me while I was getting married. MY wife did not ask me if i was going to be carrying a gun when we got married she asked what gun I was going to be carrying .

    If it is legal to carry there, I am carrying. If it is not legal to carry there, I most likely will not go there (if it can be avoided).

    I've carried to weddings, funerals, work dinners/functions, on weekend trips to friends/family, and any other time I am clothed. Never an issue, and only a select few people ever even know. Those who know, know they never have to wonder. If they see me, there's a firearm concealed on my person somewhere.

    Criminals don't schedule crimes. If they did, I'd know where not to be and I'd never need to carry.

    If I can legally carry, I do ALWAYS.
     
  11. Count me among those who carry at all times (unless restricted by law, of course).

    I carry at family gatherings just like I would anywhere else. We cannot choose when the bad guys decide to press their luck.

    I carry whenever it's legal. A J frame on my ankle or in my pocket. Even dress pants can conceal for you.
