    So say you are invited to a family dinner, a dinner at your boss' place, or lunch with friends that aren't really close. Do you carry?

    Every time I leave the house I am carrying, so yes. If I end up somewhere where it is not legal for me, there is a safe in my truck.

    Before you can lead, you must refuse to follow

    Yep and it's never an issue because they don't know it's there.

    I live in a very quiet, secure neighborhood. It's zero-dark-thirty here by the totally private pool area, and I have an LC9/Remora combo stuck in my waistband.

    I only mention this to reinforce the idea that if I have clothes on, I'm armed. I can't imagine going anywhere without a weapon these days. Besides, if you carry concealed...who's gonna know?

    Which are the least likely situations in which you'll need to carry.

    Except maybe in grizzly country., and then my pocket pistol won't do me much good.

    If I want. If not, my friends or family will probably be carrying. Where I'm from, carrying a gun is just a normal thing. I sometimes carry my grandmother's S&W Mod. 60 that she gave me when she was too old to pull the trigger anymore. My mother usually keeps her gun at home, but my brother always has one on him and my wife and father have it either on them or in the car.

    The only time I don't carry is when I plan on having some drinks.

    Yes. No one ever sees even a hint of it.

    Sure, even if you don't need it at the party you need to get to the party. Bad stuff happens everywhere and anywhere anymore. You just never know. But you'll probably never need it, so if it makes you feel uncomfortable, leave it at home, you'll probably be just fine either way.
