    I've read where folks like to OC....is there anywhere where you choose or refuse to carry? Obviously aside from locations where it's illegal to carry.

    Family functions.

    We have so many children in our family and extended family. Whenever we get together to hang out - I always seem to lock my sidearm in the truck along with my holster. Too many children (young). I foresee many Questions and curious, grab-y (sticky) hands.

    At work. Secure area, BIG no no.


    If it isn't broke, then don't fix it, or you'll fix it until it's broke.

    I don't OC (or carry at all) in places where it is illegal, or would get me fired. I gotta eat.

    Unlike some (on both sides) it seems, I tend to be very flexible about HOW I carry. I will OC when I think it is more comfortable, on those rare ocassions when I want to make a political statement (voting for example), or when, for whatever reason, one of my full size or hand cannons is the appropriate gun to carry, etc.

    I will casually conceal carry whenever the weather requires a jacket. I simply make no over attempt to drop a holster down below what my jacket is likely to cover. Nor do I usually make efforts to keep the gun hidden (tuckable holsters or the like).

    Now, there are some times when I will specifically conceal carry.
    1-At certain social functions where a visible gun simply is going to be a distraction: most wedding receptions, funerals, etc.
    2-When my activities would place the gun at risk of damage (snow skiing, snowmobiling) and my clothing will offer greater protection for it.
    3-When I am doing something that requires I not be distracted by others making an issue of my gun. Accompanying (as opposed to simply visiting) someone in the local hospitals in such a case. It is legal, I COULD make an issue of it if they pushed, but at the end of the day, if I am helping a loved one who is in the hospital, the focus needs to be on him/her, NOT on me or my gun.
    4-On those days when I decide that one of my pocket guns is simply more comfortable, and still adequate to carry, rather than one of my mid or full sized firearms.
    5-Any other time when, for whatever reason, I figure being discrete is the way to go.


    Between a couple of pocket/mouse guns, smartcarry, and other discrete holsters it is easy enough to be very discrete when I want or need to be.

    With a decent OWB holster I OC (or Casually conceal) whenever that options suites.

    I figure the import thing is TO CARRY, not HOW I carry on any given day.

    I hope that doesn't mean you carried in a post office.

    Look, anyone that has not done so yet, buy a copy of Mitch Vilos' book, Utah Gun Laws. Read it, then read it again. If you are carrying without full and complete knowledge of the law, then you could wind up in jail.

    EVERYONE here should know exactly where they can not carry. Remember, ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    Yeah, I think I'm gonna go pick that book up. I never carried in a post office yet, so I guess I got lucky this time.

    Last week my family--- about 120 in total spent 3 days together at Ruby's Inn just north of Bryce Canyon National Park. I OC'd for the entire time I was there EXCEPT for the Helicopter tour of the park. I never placed a foot on the ground in the park.

    During the 3 days only one individual even mentioned the gun on my hip and that was after this uncle had been listening to a conversation about firearms and OC'ing with a Brother-in-Law for about 20 mins BEFORE he noticed the gun.

    Then on Sunday night at my parents home my sister noticed the gun and said "Whoa, that is a gun!" In response I asked her if she was bothered by the gun and she said "No, I just hadn't noticed it before. I told her that it had been there for the entire reunion. Appearantly, she had never seen it even tho her husband and I had gone shooting twice during the 3 days.

    Overall, 3+ days with friends and family with over 120 in attendance and not a single negative comment. All while wearing various t-shirts and a hat purchased from Gun Owners of America (life member).

    Just my report....

    Right now, unless I have some reason to go somewhere else, the only place I go to that I don't carry is Camp Williams, and HQ in Draper.

    But normally, I wouldn't carry at work, and any place it was illegal.

    I don't like to OC in heavily crowded places where it is difficult to impossible to enjoy myself and maintain the extreme situational awareness required. I'll just CC instead. I also wouldn't OC to a more formal type dinner/banquet, a theater production or certain business functions. Basically, if it is appropriate for me to wear a tie, I'll typically CC.

    Generally I OC. But there are times that I CC, even when I could get away with OC'ing. It depends on the situation.



    As an example, a lady in our county wanted to start a hiking group. The kickoff meeting was a few weeks ago at a coffee shop. I decided not to OC, because I didn't want to freak her out. So I CC'd. I may start OC'ing once she starts to know me better.
