Default CCW....who carries a gun with them?

Just curious,was reading that now all 50 states allow you to carry a concealed weapon. In Canada the gun laws are much stricter - was wondering how many here carry ?

I have carried more the last week than the last 2 years. And ill continue to do so until the race pimps and instigators crawl back under their rocks, im not going to be someones punching bag because they feel like they need to get "justice" for some dead guy.

Just because it's legal in all 50 states now doesn't mean certain states will make it easy to get a ccw

I have a truck gun and a travel gun. I don't regularly CCW on person, because I do a lot of physical labor down south and sweat alot...so the gun prints easily on a shirt, or gets soaked in sweat.

My truck gun is always on board....especially nowadays and where I travel to.

As stated, some states make it incredibly difficult to get the permit. My county was quite accomadating. I have the permits and a gun that is perfect for carrying (IMO) but rarely carry it.

Except when I get to work on the navy or air force base. Even right this moment sitting at the computer...

I will say probably not as often as I should, but sometimes. I'm a teacher, so I am not allowed to carry it in the free-kill.....er..um...gun-free zone! I often think about how foolish I will feel if something ever happens and I didn't put my CCW and gun to use. I would have to live with that mistake, or die because of it.

I know it has been said before, but I hope all you guys keeping guns in your car aren't leaving them there unattended or locked (besides the car door). You can disagree, but that is totally irresponsible, just sayin.

If your out and about and your firearm is not on your person its useless. If you carry you must be able to draw it from concealment which takes lots and lots of practice. Theres are many people who do all kinds of advanced firearms classes and there always something to learn. My wife and I took a pistol/shotgun class a while ago, she didnt really want to go, turned out she had a great time. Be safe and be prepared.
