    Of those that are legally eligible, do you carry a handgun?

    Don't vote if you aren't legally eligible.

    I carry with me at all times when i'm in my apartment. But those good folks up in Sacramento won't let me carry once I step outside my door.

    Put my pistol on when I get up and take off when I retire for the night. If you need it you need it. May not have time for to unlock or remove from safe.

    It is on my person every waking hour .. when in bed it is on the floor within easy reach. Only exceptions will be (rare - very rare) when I might have to go onto school property and going into a courthouse.

    Funny thing is tho - I work from home so ..... arguably, most of each day is moderately risk-free but .. hey ..... you can't make appointments for emergencies! It's like a wrist watch .. always there. I'd hate to reach for the piece when needed and find it ain't there ...... so ...... keep it there then it is always available ..... plus it is at its most secure too.

    I like to always have some level of handgun protection with me, even if its just my Guardian .32.

    Just a thought

    Could a mod add a choice for "right denied" or something so those folks wouldnt have to hit "veiw results?"

    Yes, but only because they won't let me carry a rifle.

    It's too ostentatious. :D

    All the time, except when I'm inside my office building. For some reason the .gov doesn't want anyone aside from uniformed security to be armed in there.

    Some days I'd rather carry my FAL, though.

    Regards,
    Rabbit.

    You bet.

    And the P-3AT makes it less of an annoyance.

    I'm about to move the sprinkler in the back yard. I'll be carrying a .357 magnum in a pocket. Good habits pay for themselves many times over.

    Asking that poll question here..................

    Not all the time. I live in California and don't have a "special need", so no CCW for me. I do carry a folding knife all the time, though.
