My heavy drinking days ended shortly after high school. I’d been a one drink with diner guy most nights since then. I gave it up completely after my heart attack because of the blood thinners they had me on. But when I got off those my doctor said a single glass of red wine with diner would be good for my heart. So I’ve been following the doctors orders most nights since:)

I’m gonna get a lot of flak for what I say next… But I actually do have a problem with laws that say you can’t exercise your right to self defense if a drop of alcohol touches your lips. But you can get in a vehicle and legally drive down the road after 2 or 3 drinks for most people. Which is more likely to harm someone - a person who is incredibly unlikely to have to touch the pistol in their holster or someone behind the wheel making constant adjustments in traffic on the way home?

Having said that in AZ you can’t touch a drop of alcohol and a firearm at the same time so I follow the law to the letter.

I do believe that no one should carry a firearm or drive a vehicle when their cognitive abilities are impaired any more than they would be after a long hard day at work. Regardless what the law says.

The conditions of my permit in CA is that I don’t have even a drop while carrying. It’s not a law, so it might not have legal implications. But I’m pretty sure that, if caught, no more carry permit for Jim. So I honor my promise.

Having said that, when I get back from the range and will be home the rest of the evening, there’s nothing better than lighting the BBQ and having a couple beers while cleaning my guns and my EDC is with me. The beer tastes even better after a trip to the range and the smell of Hoppe’s blends nicely with the smell of the charcoal heating up. And I don’t drink to excess. Even at home, if I had to use my firearm, I wouldn’t want consumption of alcohol to be used against me in my defense. An attorney could have a field day with that. So much of the law is based on, “could a reasonable person…”. Does that still apply if someone is intoxicated? If I’m below the legal limit to drive a car, I’ve got a fighting chance. But if I’m over the legal limit, how is that going to play out in a civil lawsuit?

Not familiar with Kaz & glad I’m not a vitamin. Sorry can’t help it sometimes. Spell check is hilarious…sometimes. bobbyjean

Don’t drink and carry. Period. Even in states where one can have one drink or 0.08 BAL. Not safe and may mitigate any act of defense. No problem carrying in a bar or restaurant but just don’t drink.

I agree. I don’t drink any longer but when I knew that I was going to be having a cocktail or two, I would not carry but my wife would because she was the designated driver and vice/versa.
In Texas you can be over the legal limit in your home & still legally defense yourself with no legal reproduction according to the law. Now in a courtroom that may play out differently with a jury but if no other choice was given, you could be legally drunk in your home & if it’s a righteous shoot, the point is moot.

Nope I don’t drink, I quit year’s ago, I can’t stand the stuff, it could disappear from the face of the earth and I wouldn’t loose any sleep! I guess it’s because I’ve lost countless loved ones and it just causes to much unnecessary suffering!
