I carry anytime I go out of the apartment - even when I take MollyBear out to use the bathroom. Inside my apartment, it’s right next to me. I’ve only been asked once what I was carrying- I answered “alot of water at the moment, I’ve got to pee”.
I met Ray Stevens at a song writers convention. I think he’s bipolar lol. Good guy in front of the camera and people, not so nice otherwise.
Every day everywhere
I carry all the time, everywhere. Even mowing the lawn. Always concealed except in the woods hunting, fishing etc… then I’ll open carry. I never open carry in public.
How often do I carry? A conservative estimate…70%. Why not 100%. Because I haven’t worked out all of the holstering options that I need in order to carry comfortably 100% of the time. I need to get that figured out.
Living in Texas with a Licence To Carry (LTC), I could holster it OWB, open carry. That would be easy. But I don’t personally feel comfortable doing that. I’d rather be under the radar.
Thanks for the question topic Kevin. By answering this publicly, it’s forcing me to resolve this ASAP.
Every single day.
I work in education. I carry if I go anywhere in the evenings, weekends, and when I’m off for break. I’ve toyed with the idea of keeping my gun in my car while at work (legal where I’m at if it stays locked up in car), but I’m more worried about it being stolen than needing it.
Being a Govt worker, carrying is usually off limits anywhere I go for my job. Not even in the parking lot for my office. Not terribly worried as most buildings I work in have large Law Enforcement/Security presence though.
Outside of office, conceal carry nearly always where allowed.
I carry everywhere even if I’m just going to take out the trash I do not care when people stare when I open carry, here in Indiana open carry is allowed once you have carry permit.
If you don’t mind my asking, what gun are you carrying, and at what position?
After being attacked twice, once because someone wanted my iPad more than I did, and then being violently attacked because of the guy I chose to date, evidently someone didn’t think I should be dating a guy who is half my age and a different race, I carry everywhere I go, as long as it is legal, and I carry in my house. I feel naked without it.
P320 Compact, appendix. I’ll be switching to the P365 for my EDC soon.
Every day, everywhere. My EDC weapon is like my AMEX card… I never leave home without it.
The 320 is a great firearm, and I carry a firearm around the same size in the appendix position. I do reccomend buying a high quality holster and a good belt for carrying appendix. Belts that can adjust quickly are nice as you may have to adjust your belt to find comfort while sitting. I also pull my pants up when I sit as well. Another thing I had added to my holster is a pad. Not only does the pad compliment the claw for pushing my firearm into my stomach, but it makes sitting a lot easier.
What kind of holster do you have?
Thanks @James ! I have a T.REX ARMS Sidecar holster. For me, not the most comfortable. I’ve realized now that I really don’t want to carry a second mag in the appendix holster. I smaller holder overall might be my best option.
Hmmmm… that sounds really familiar!
I just switched to appendix for my P365 from my 4 o’clock P320 Subcompact.
@Dawn Awesome! How do you like it? And do you notice a substantial difference in comfortability?
I love them both - the 365 is much easier to conceal.
I always have my gun on me unless I’m going somewhere that the law says I can’t carry
If I’m awake, I’m carrying. The only exceptions are when I have to go to places where firearms are prohibited such as federal facilities. When sleeping, I keep a firearm within easy reach.
While reasonable minds can differ, I don’t generally engage in open carry. I think it tends to unnecessarily excite people. Like most things, there are exceptions. I frequently work overseas under military contracts. They require open carry over concealment. But, in that situation, everyone’s armed.
