    To answer the OPs question , if you are going to carry you should carry all the time. Why? Because if you were to be involved in a shooting and a clever lawyer asks you how often you carry and your response is not very often..only when I feel threatened or go into a bad neighborhood you are not going to fair well. It will be inferred that when you are looking for trouble you carry.
    Carry everyday, if not on your person (highly recommended) in a Maxpedition bag or whatever you carry with you every day. That life threatening assault won't come when you expect it and you'll be happy if you are prepared when it does.

    Just remember to not carry when going to certain locations (airports, federal, state, local gov't. buildings, etc.) Too many times people simple forget not to carry in those places because carrying is just a part of their normal "routine." Carrying should never become a "routine." You have to think about it every time you have a weapon on you. It is a big responsibility and carries a ton of consequences when you let your guard down. Drink responsibly? Carry even more so.

    Just know the laws in the state you are in. They vary from state to state and "I didn't know" is the worst answer you can give.

    Just reviving an old thread because I am about to get my CCL. I bought a nice new carry gun and am still debating on when, where and if to carry. I live in a pretty rural area, but when I go into Chicago (which is very infrequent) I will definitely carry. That said, many interesting comments made and I like hearing the different points of view. Rocket made a very good point.

    Agreed, Rocket made an EXCELLENT POINT. If you make concealed carry a discretionary decision in your day to day life it could come back to seriously bite you in the ass. Either do it or don't do it. I travel a lot - and of course I do not carry at the airport. That has become a very conscious part of my carrying practice because I do it so frequently. However, if I'm not someplace that I had to fly to, in a gov't building, or in the pool, I have a firearm on me. Should I (God forbid) ever have to answer those questions from a lawyer I feel that I am adequately prepared.

    Of coarse you could always answer yes, even if you don't.

    Any weapon used to kill is considered a deadly weapon. You don't want to go in to court unless their was no way out of the situation that is you have to be in fear of your life. They always ask is their any thing else you could have done to remove the threat like leave.

    I,ve had my gun permit for years now, I would not hurt a flee, but unless you want to hurt me.:thumbsup:Most all gun permit folks feel the same way. I carry a 357 Smith & Wesson airlite in my pocket always. But mopars are more fun than guns. I am a retired soldier.
