    I voted for being a man 50% of the time.... wait! That's not right. Well, you get the idea.

    The only reason I couldn't vote for carrying 100% of the time is that I can't carry at work and feel uncomfortable leaving a handgun in the car for 9-10 hours a day as someone may see me remove it and know where to find it five days a week.

    Well I'm not an astronaut or Space Shuttle door gunner, but I carry 100% of the time as well unless I'm travelling in states that don't allow such things.

    Would be 100% if I could, but not professionally practical ... especially when traveling. I voted 50% of the time.

    50 percent is about right for this guy/man/dude.

    I carry most nonworking hours. No firearms allowed on company property so I can't carry 100%.

    I carry 100% of the time except when I go to school, seeing how its illegal to have firearms on college property and campus security no longer stores weapons for students anymore. its a real shame

    Needs an option for "I'm underage or am still in the process of getting a permit".

    If I'm out of the house I'm armed - 100% (well probably 95%) of the time.

    Like the man said:

    Most people will never need a gun. BUT! When they do need one they'll really, really need one.

    I voted for 100% of the time, but I am in the Navy, and thus cannot carry to work on base, but if I am going ANYWHERE other than on the base only, I carry 100% in the 'civilian world'.

    I had to say 75%. There are some places I work (gov't installations, military bases, Washington DC) that don't allow it. But I carry whenever it's legal.

    I carry where I can, but being in college puts a bit of a damper on that. So around 75%.

    After living in a state/county which denied me my right to self defense, I take carrying very seriously. If I'm awake, I have a gun. Always. The only time I won't have a gun is if I'm required to go into a courthouse or jail area, which hasn't happened so far, and hopefully won't.
    I don't go places that require me to disarm. So far, I haven't seen any no weapons signage here in Oregon. I won't patronize a business that denies me my right to carry. Part of the reason I left CA was to take my dollars away from them.

    Never carry any kind of firearm, cuz its illegal here. I may or may not have a very sharp implement in my pocket all the time though...

    I carry everyday except when I am at work because policy forbids it. Stupid policy but I need a job.

    The only place I don't carry is at work. And our official company policy says ccw'ers can leave their guns locked in their cars on company property. Since they allow me to do that, and I have my car on video surveillance all the time with me less than 30 yards away, I do not break the policy.
    I carry all other times however, even at home.
    And when I leave it in the car, I have it locked in a case from this company:

    Since I work at a University, can't carry there. Don't want to leave it in the car since they do get broken into often. So I also don't have it one the 45 minute drive back and forth to work. That leaves me to in-state vacations and on weekends. So less than 25%.
