    The first one looks the best. I was armed during my wedding, and so was my best man, plus at least two of the guests. :)
    Congrats on the new butter bars, too!

    Thanks! Actually, none of us were openly carrying during the actual wedding. After the pre-wedding photos were taken, all of those (completely empty) guns were put in the trunk of my car. I didn't carry my normal pocket gun because it printed too well in my tuxedo. I think my eldest was carrying his Kel Tec P3AT, and that was it.

    So the irony is that, even with all of those guns, we were probably less protected than normal during the wedding.

    A good friend got married last month in NY. I wasn't there for the conversation, but somehow guns came up, possibly due to us being from VT.. but either way, even though us Vermonters can't carry in NY, there was a bunch of gun pics taken.
    Camera guy said he didn't normally do it, but took the guys in the wedding out to his SUV, opened the back door, punched in a code on a keypad, and lifted the lid to a vehicle safe full of Kimbers. Nice!

    If the couple want to do it, then OK by me, but it is strange and takes away from what a wedding is all about.
    It is about lifelong devotion to one another, and not about guns.

    PcolaDawg, yes, all of our sidearms were concealed and fully loaded - my wife-to-be had justifiable worries about her pot smoking ex inmate ex husband showing up to the wedding. Found out years later he was actually in prison in Texas at the time.
    I had a Keltec P-11, best man a Smith Model 19 3", and one friend in the congregation had a Glock 21. At least one more was carrying, don't remember what it was. My parents would have been mortified if they had known. :D

    Sweet. I don't know who all at the wedding was carrying during the ceremony, but I do know the preacher usually carries a Kel Tec P32, the wedding photographer (a female) usually carries a Makarov, and her son who was helping her usually carries a Springfield XDM.

    ALA-FREAKIN'-BAMA!!! :D

    Corny as field in the Midwest.
    Wedding photographers are the number one source of embarassing cheesy staged pictures.

    My kind of people. No hoplophobes there.

    Now if we just had a shot of a derringer in the bride's garter....

    I'm deadly serious. I counted seven major and imminent mistakes regarding where muzzles are pointed (imminent meaning someone should have spoken up immediately), and a few that are just kinda bad (as if kinda bad isn't bad).

    Thank you for retaining a good spirit in the face of my criticism (a lot of people just get mad and turn the brain off). I'm being completely sincere. There are serious problems with muzzle direction by several individuals in those pics. Muzzles pointed directly at people, or close enough to violate the basic rules (sheesh, one where a guy is clearly standing in front of the guy pointing the gun at him). Eyes not looking where muzzles are pointed, sometimes WHILE muzzles are pointed at people, and eyes not looking where muzzles are pointed as firearms are horizontal.

    :D"With that having been said, I'll try and do better when my next kid gets hitched. "

    With that in mind, next time you need matching firearms and holsters.:D

    I've seen wedding pictures where a handgun was aimed at the photographer. Not pointed, but aimed.

    Just because there are guns in a picture doesn't make it macho. I don't recall seeing any "me man roar" expressions.

    Thank you for sharing the pics. I enjoyed them. I'm also glad to know I'm not alone in carrying to a wedding.

    If a photographer wants to take that picture, at least the eyes would be looking where the muzzle is going.

    I would like to see the wedding party with, as suggested before, matching holsters and sidearms, including the bride.:)
