    Why would someone ask? Concealed is concealed. I don't have any properties that have signs posted.

    I'm not easily offended so no worries there, Your exactly right it's situational awareness of which I have a lot more of now due to what happened to me, like I said I carry now for the very reason you mentioned, I at least want a fighting chance.

    If I didn't think I was going to fill my gun with dirt daily I would definitely carry it every second.

    First off, the 60 Minute deal was set up to make the carriers fail, the minute they were placed in the room. Secondly, you better be training monthly for every scenario. The training company I attend has a simulator for training and we also do Force on Force training every month. You have got to be prepared PERIOD

    Same here, Its tough finding a way to conceal ALL the time.
    Especially in summer clothes.

    Winter, not much problem.

    Man you need to lighten up a whole bunch.

    Obviously you live in a state thats badly bound up.

    In a lot of states it is not state law to register any thing.
    Other than like full auto weapons.
    And licenses????????? I don't even need a CCP to carry in my state.
    I do have one but open or concealed carry without a permit is legal in my state.

    Concealed carry with out a permit is legal in I believe 5 states now.

    So go ahead, be a 911 rambo and call the cops.
    Aint gonna do you any good unless the guy is breaking the law. The only thing it'll do is make you look silly to the cops.

    You may not care for those that carry but that does not mean you get to take away their God given right to do so.
    Any more than a guy that believes in carrying gets to take away your right to say what ever comes out of your mouth.

    LOL!!! Call the cops??? good luck here!!! If you do happen to have cell service you'll be waiting a while. Average response time IF your working near a population center is 10-15 minutes. If your in the sticks GOOD LUCK!!! Average response time here is over 1/2 hour. We are also an open carry state and i see a LOT of people carrying. Funny we only had 11 murders in the whole state last year. Might be because everyone is armed??? Personally when i see someone carrying a weapon i am comforted that someone will have my back if SHTF. Do a carry ALL the time?? In my rig YES, On the job, depends on where i am at. Are people here bothered by firearms??? NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST!!! Our valley has a population of 90,000 and we have 12 different firearms manufacturers here............
