Know your state laws. In SC it is illegal to carry a gun into a bar. It is illegal to carry a gun if you are consuming alcohol. It is illegal to discharge a firearm while under the influence of alcohol even on your own property.
For example, I am contemplating changing one of my long held tenants regarding Firearm Weapons Carry.

In the past, I would surrender my carry weapon to my wife or leave it secured in my vehicle if we were out to eat and I planned to have even one alcoholic beverage.

But lately, I am thinking that this might not be prudent, should a need arise to defend me or mine.

What say you?

It's illegal in WA state to carry a firearm into a bar also - even the bar area of restaurants (where I said I had sat to eat). :) Don't see don't tell...

Peace,

Yes I now carry 3 guns at one time. It's quicker then a reload.

Haven't seen any gun not allowed signs at local businesses but I never look. My glasses are all steamed up from those stupid masks. So I may have over looked them.

Where in the constitution does it say anything about having a beer and losing my rights??

Good answers all! I've thought about it extensively since I started this thread and came to my answer as Mrs S and I met Son 1 and DIL 1 for lunch.

I was carrying my Springfield 1911 Range Officer. No alcohol for me even though I thought about a beer with lunch. I've made the firm decision to not have any alcohol while out and limit my alcohol to home use only. I believe that to the most wise decision when carrying.

Thanks all!
A good tactical choice and you will also save money drinking at home. I think back about all the money I spent drinking in bars in my lifetime, and it causes me to think.

Causes me to think about how much more I could have enjoyed drinking at home for the money I saved not drinking in the bars, and the trouble those cute little bar whores have caused me from time to time. What was that old song? "I go to bed at 2 with a 10 and wake up at 10 with a 2"? :vs_worry:

Out and about lunch, dinner, I'M CC'g wife has the cocktails, I'm having either water or Diet Mtn. Dew. I increased the carry load to include two automatic knives, Super Carry Ultra Plus pistol 8+1, instead of one spare magazine went to two Chip McCormick 10 round mags in leather pouch, if traveling additional two 10 rounders in vehicle.

Current events (china flu, civil unrest, etc.) haven't changed anything I do, but events over the last decade have. The massive influx of east and west coast fruitcakes into this area has really polarized the population. I don't need more guns because there are more fruitcakes but the chance of needing to use what I already carry has gone way up.
Welcome From Farmington. I often have to visit the Alb area, and when I do, its a M&P 9 tucked into the seatsplit, and on my hip everytime I step out of the truck.
I wonder what started this thread?
I have been thinking a lot lately, and after Wed, 1-6-2021, I will probably keep a firearm on a necklace, one in each pocket, and two on my hip.
Hell, I may start carrying my Pardner 12 gauge pump on a sling,
If Deebo is out of his fence, he will be fully loaded.

Deebs,

I was re-thinking my long held decision to not carry when I go out to dinner and have a few "social" drinks of alcohol. I wanted to knuckleheads to chime in with their thoughts.

Hope you're well my friend,

Here in the City of the Crosses I'm comfortable with just a .40 Shield for CC and a full sized .40 in the truck. But when I have to go to Alb my truck looks more like something from a Mad Max movie.

Living in the semi - rural area I’m pretty comfortable but I also don’t leave the house with being armed. You just never know.

I never leave the house without a gun in my pocket, even to go out to the mailbox on the road.
There are always two .357 magnums in the truck.
Since a few weeks before the election, when things started to get crazy, I now have a 12 ga pump loaded with OO buck on the back floorboard of my crew cab. With 5 extras in a butt cuff and another box of 5 right on the floor.
This is Florida, completely legal to be armed this way.

Generally I don't carry when within a few miles of the house (pistol kept in glovebox) but when I started seeing the BLM protests in local towns last year I started carrying all the time when off the property and increased the size of the house defense weapon. The last few months with things quieting down I had gone back to only carrying when in the big city but the last few weeks I've gone back to full time carry.

When we go out I'm much more likely to order tea than a beer when carrying.

I keep an M&P 9mm in the center console of my truck as a back up but have recently been thinking about keeping the 870 in the truck as well. Again, my area of Texas is pretty good, especially my county and the surrounding towns, but you never know. I may need another 870 for the house if I put one in the truck.

Yes I have changed over time—- I once carried 1 knife, now I carry 2 or 3. And an aluminum walking stick.
I have never applied for a carry permit in my life, but that is subject to change. I have a .40 that would be great for packing.

I used to never open carry. Now I do sometimes like when I'm not wearing a face diaper. It cuts down on the comments.

I put a M870 12 ga. in my trunk in Charlotte and that was over 20 years ago. I was driving a cab, and I carried my .45 in a cross draw. I ended in some spooky places while I was driving, so I upped my artillery.
