I own a gun for home protection and target shooting. I qualify for a carry permit, but I don't think carrying everywhere is all that useful. It's not likely that you're going to get to your gun in time if you're jumped, and in such cases a gun might be wrested from you, especially in close quarters, and you're putting yourself at risk of getting shot.
Yes!!! I would probably be nerve stricken and wouldn't know what to do with it if I were ever attacked *knockonwoodhopenever*Originally Posted by Kaykaykay

Every day carry requires training and vigilance, no doubt. Folks unwilling to invest time, $ and effort should probably not carry, concealed or otherwise. Two key words... Situational awareness. Words to carry, and live by.
And if you feel that you are not capable and/or trained properly enough to maintain possession and control of you firearm, then you are right - you have no business carrying it in public places.
If you can accurately predict when and when not to carry a handgun, then your best bet is to simply avoid the places that you feel you would need to carry.I qualify for a carry permit, but I don't think carrying everywhere is all that useful.
Seriously, my point is that it is impossible to predict the need. Therefore, it is far better to have it and not to need it than to need it and not have it.
