I know some always carry but I cannot carry to work or even have it in the parking lot. After a 10.5 hour day with no scheduled lunch or breaks (cannot leave the store unless two of us there) I frankly am too tired when I get home to put on my S&W Shield. I do have guns strategically placed around the house.

That said, they have cut my hours back from 48/week (no overtime) to 30 and now Saturdays Off YEEEAAHH! So now I am carrying significantly more. Just had a shooting at the new Wal-Mart down the road about 4 miles. 1:30 in the afternoon out in the parking lot. They say both knew each other. (Guess they know each other as well as they thought)

Are y'll carrying more?

I always carry when I go into the City, but now I'm carrying whenever I go out of the house.

I carry at all times now and M&P is loaded at home some people are just acting weird maybe need to load the Mossberg. When the big tornado hit few years ago a young man told me would steal or rob to feed his family , I replied some people will do whats needed to protect themselves and property your kids may end up fatherless

Haven't left the hose since last Saturday. They wont let me go to work until this Saturday. Closed down for "deep cleaning" what ever that means. Not allowed to be armed at work.

Do not carry any less which is all the time except asleep. Have cleaned a lot of guns and make sure in good shape (ones have not used for a while, hunting etc) Do not trust anyone and have switched pharmacy so can use a drive through. Am retired so guess staying at home and avoiding people is now common for us. Is sad to see how fast people can degrade. Were talking in gun store and we saw where some guy said the city was too dangerous so were going to start stealing in rural areas. Must be a special stupid as there are a lot more guns in the rural areas than the cities.

As soon as the pants go on in the morning the 649 comes out of the nightstand. Out shopping or church when we can go back I’ll switch to the full size HK P30 or Sig 239.

Carry everywhere except to casino, which I can't go to for a while.:eek:
My M340PD lives constantly in my left pants pocket, with 2 Bianchi Speed Strips in the other pocket.
I feel I am sufficiently armed.....most of the time. If not I back it up with my Glock 23 or my M66-1.

My routine hasn't changed. If I'm out of the house I conceal carry, without fail. I also conceal carry at work even though I'm not supposed to. My immediate boss knows and doesn't care. No one else knows at work and I don't broadcast it.

When I'm home I set that pistol on the desk I'm at now but I also have two other guns placed around the house. I'm never far from one.

So basically, nothing has changed for me.

Always carrying all day, outside, on the tractor, in the home or in town. My routine has not changed and I can walk a short way to my handgun range to pop a few caps when I get the urge. :)

It would be unwise for people to travel to rural areas and rob/steal...

Ever since I was Able to CC I have been doing it daily. Every morning I get my 2.5" 66-2 in place, 4 o'clock, while enjoying a nice fresh brewed cup of coffee. It's become a habit and one I don't mind having.:)

638 is in my front pocket right now as I type this and will stay there until I go to bed. SD9VE is waiting on the night stand to cover the night shift. I keep the 638 downstairs so I guess I am wide open to attack in the few seconds it takes to go up the stairs. I always carry when out and still just carry a J frame most of the time around town
