    Do most of you carry concealed weapons on a regular basis, or just occassionally, or almost never? Under what circumstances do you carry a gun and what do you carry? Do you carry it on the hip or fully concealed on the upper body?

    Just curious, I've never carried a pistol, though the .380 I mentioned in an earlier post was actually given to me 10 yrs ago, I just never used it. I've considered getting a concealed permit, though don't know what is involved in doing so, for the rare occassions i might want to carry it.

    The only time I have a gun concealed is when I am awake. In my pocket or on my side.

    Any time I am with my wife and/or son.

    I sometimes carry when alone. I always carry when with my family.

    Like others, if I'm awake I'm carrying whether at home or out and about.

    Isn't it tricky to sleep with a gun on you?

    usually at least once a day... no carry on campus for classes the bulk of the day, though.

    based on the earlier post, make sure whatever you're carrying is something you would trust your life with or don't carry it. all a broken/jammed gun is gonna do is cause an (over)reaction from the BG you pulled it on... you're better off w/ a good knife and/or pepper spray

    Started in 1975, when I was in the SADF. Carried my Browning HP till 84, when I moved to the US. New York did not trust me with a handgun for 3 years, as soon as I got my permit, I started carrying again. Moved to AZ in 89, did not legally CCW carry for a couple of years, but I always had a pistol and/or rifle handy close by. Moved to SC in 2003, and once again I waited awhile before I could do the class and get my CCW.

    Been involved in a couple of scenarios where I could have legally pulled the trigger, but I always gave them a chance to back off, with the understanding of what will happen to them if they don't. The old F off or die approach. So far it has worked.

    Now I carry everywhere. I'm pushing 50, just had a galbladder operation 2 months ago, and I'm in no mood or shape to get into hand to hand combat with some young punk.

    24/7 whether I need it or not. If it ain't there when you need it, what's carrying the other 99 percent of the time gonna help? I needed one once, but didn't have to shoot. I'm low threat anymore, but you just never know.....

    Acutally, I carry a handgun AND a shotgun in bed, well, okay, within easy reach....

    Everyday for about a year now with the exceptions of going to work (in DC), or the airport. Something usually comes with me.

    If my clothes are on, I am also wearing my Glock 26. Got my permit in Aug of 2000 and can count the number of days since then that I have gone unarmed on one hand.

    I have been carrying concealed for somewhat more than 25 years. Carry whenever I am out of the house (wherever legal) 24/7. I use a well made IWB holster or, lately, have found that the Smartcarry provides an excellent carry mode. Didn't think it would but it sure does well for me.

    I carry when ever I legally can -- even in the house. My normal methed of carry is a good concealment holster during the colder months. A belly band during the warmer month and a pocket holster for in and around the house. Colder months = Sig 229 SAS DAK. Warmer months = Sig 239 SAS DAk. Pocket carry = a J-frame (or equivalent: SP101, Taurus 85, etc) or a COlt Pocket Nine.
