    There are at least 3 others who carry also at work. Here in KY, the Post Office and schools are the only places I don't carry.

    Always except when prohibited by law. Which in my case means church and (ironically enough) military posts. But even when I pick my kids up from school I am carrying.

    When I'm in the shower or places where prohibited.

    Probably not a wise thing to answer this one, or to post it online.

    I don't have too many places. I usually won't carry over at someone's house before I know their stance (or I'll just carry my LCP). I don't get out much, though, so it's probably a lot less for me.

    I don't have a problem carrying to the gym, because my gym is the kind that comes with free dinner (my parent's house, they have enough exercise machines I don't need to go to an actual gym).

    Free machines > paying for free weights.

    My gym usually involves lots of water, waders, and a lot of exercise with my right arm. And lots (and lots) of moving around. I lost close to 20 lbs last summer through fishing 3-4 times per week for a 2-ish hours each time.

    Cardio/calorie burning/weight loss and building muscle/strength are very different things.

    When you talked about using a gym, and machines, I made the assumption you were after more than burning calories. As you showed with the fishing example, you don't need a gym or machines or weights or anything to do cardio/burn calories.

    Burpees are free, and a jump rope is cheap.

    If you could see the size of the fish I catch, you'd see that I really am doing weight lifting/strength training. :) (yes, we're drifting totally and completely off topic.)

    The last weight training I did was 10 years/50 lbs ago. I need to start again.

    BTW, I always carry when fishing (firearm along with pepper spray), mostly because of aggressive dogs, badgers, ill-tempered carp, etc...

    Well, machines as in treadmill, elliptical, and rower (and not really a machine, but a TRX strap). I have free weights at my place, they get used somewhat. But we're getting off-topic.

    If I were going to a real gym, it would be in an area where firearms are not allowed anyway, so no-can-do there.

    Gyms are OK in Michigan.

    I wasn't aware of any state that ever made gyms off limits.

    Work on a military base. Funny that Marines are handed a couple hundred rounds for a year or so at a time and a true "assault rifle" but on our own bases it is like being in CA.

    I don't carry when I am sleeping(in a Ft. Knox handgun safe next to the bed), when I am in the shower, when I am in the gym(I usually carry an LCP and I don't need it flopping around in gym shorts or falling out of my pocket) and when I am in California. I HATE not having it with me when I am in California.

    Always wondered this myself. Even some forward deployed bases are condition green while mortars and insurgent fire are falling inside the fence.
