    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.

    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.
