What event is worth it?

#1

As we’re watching the Super Bowl, I’m thinking I wouldn’t give up carrying to go to the Super Bowl, I’ll watch it at home.

What event is important/awesome enough for you to go to without carrying?

#2

None any more. Not worth it.

The only thing that comes to mind is my children’s school events - graduations specifically.

I luck out that my kids are older so I don’t have to worry about school events anymore :slight_smile:

That’s the events for me. Only things that directly pertain to my child, at the school.

Don’t let the libs know you homeschool, they’ll try to make your house a gun free zone!!

Believe it or not, we have quite a large number of liberal members of the USCCA, @Kerryman71! :smiley:

Did you see that some Colorado schools are allowing their teachers to carry? This is an older article, but still a good read: https://www.denverpost.com/2018/07/08/colorado-teacher-guns-schools-classroom/

I’ve tried having that conversation here in MA. It generally isn’t worth it with some of the people around here.

None. I have skipped many events because I can’t carry.

@Tankrachet86 that’s awesome that you get to teach your son hand to hand combat, threat analysis and shooting for electives. I unfortunately don’t get those options because I have a month left of my homeschooling.

As for @Dawn’s question… I don’t go anywhere I can’t carry. When I looked for colleges to attend, it came to whether or not I could carry. I don’t feel comfortable NOT carrying. And when I find a job to start my electrician training I’ll probably carry (if it’s more of an independent company) and not tell anyone. Then if it comes up, it comes up and I’ll deal with it.

Well I got confused with someone else’s post and combined it with yours mentally.
But yes it will save your life. I’ve had to learn threat analysis as I went. I’ve come to the point where I’m pretty sure I can look at someone and figure out if they’re acting normal or not.

Right. But you can list it on the high school transcript as an elective and count it as a credit in my state.

Getting on a plane’s about it for me.

That said and without violating any rules on here I’ll say this. A wise man once said “there’s a difference in what you’re allowed to do and what you’re able to do”.

I wish schools had that today @Tankrachet86! My kids did Tae Kwon Do and I taught them to shoot. More kids need the physical outlet and the sense of accomplishment from learning to shoot!

Street names, intersections, addresses, mile markers on the highway; all important things to teach and be aware of ourselves.
