Do you have a concealed carry permit? How often do you carry?
Planning to get my permit in the next couple of weeks.

I grew up around guns, currently have a few and I enjoy shooting, but I've never had a chance to get my carry permit. Under Tennessee law you can keep a gun in your car without a permit (and I do), but it's not a Constitutional Carry state, so I'll need a permit to carry.

I'm not sure how often I'll actually carry because it's not always practical, or lawful (can't have any alcohol while carrying), but I'd like to have a permit nonetheless.

Do you have a permit? And if so, how often do you carry?

Yep. Most of the time in my vehicle which you can do in LA without one. At least a few times per week on my person.

Being able to travel to 40 states with your gun in your car is worth the price of admission.

Keep a gun in my vehicle (Legal in New Mexico).

Never really carry on my person.

I don't cross Florida Blvd or make a late night store run without mine.

One of the few states LA doesn't have reciprocity with.

I got pulled over in NM with 3 guns in my car. Cops were pretty cool about it.

I carry all the time because I'm too small to win a fist fight.

That's a good point. I've never even considered removing the gun from my car while traveling through other states. Probably not a smart move.

Yes...pretty much only in my vehicle.

TN has the castle law, so I really don't even need the permit. But it helps when I travel to other states (red ones, anyway).

What do you carry? And how?

I can see it being convenient in the fall or winter when wearing a coat, but where the hell am I going to conceal if I'm wearing a button-down and khakis? I might as well just wear a hip holster at that point.

Yeah, if you want to store the gun, the mag, and the ammo separately and out of reach.

Yep. Carry daily.

Carry a S&W Shield and used to use a Alien Gear IWB holster at 5 o'clock. Found it too hard to keep it concealed when leaning over etc and shirts had to be too big. Switched to IWB appendix carry and I can carry without printing with a well fitting thin t-shirt.

During the summer I'll usually have an IWB holster with maybe khaki shorts or jeans. It doesn't really show. I use an aliengear holster mostly with my Glock 43 but I have another smaller holster that is faster and easier to put on.
