      Where do you like to CCW? Even on a date?

      Just a curious question that I was pondering last night...

      FIrst off, I live in CA and its pretty much impossible to CCW unless you decide to join the police force.

      Anyhow, What kind've holster do you you CCW types prefer? The shoulder strap, carrying next to the ribcage? A holster in the back?

      Im guessing the girls just simply keep theirs in the purse.

      Thanks again!

      Carry 24/7 in a Mitch Rosen OWB leather holster. Better to not need it and have it, than need it and not have it. Recently i have been carrying a Ruger LCR-357 in coat pocket as a BUG, it seems to be working out rather well.

      I absolutely carry on dates. Couples or people who look like couples are good targets for robbers. If a girl doesn't like my pistol I won't like her. I'm not becoming one of those guys who lets their woman dictate how many guns they can own!!! Not to mention there are always tons of girls out there, so I can afford to be picky. None of my current girls or dates have ever complained either way...

      One of my friends chose not to carry on a date with this sexy blonde girl. She took him back to her place after the date was done it was a hillbilly backcountry type area. When she invited him in her decrepit home, he saw a HUGE nazi flag and a wall full of guns in her living room. She lived with her boyfriend!!! He boyfriend was out working or maybe even sleeping if I remember him right. Needless to say, my buddy stayed for a quick drink and GTFO of there. Had her bf not been sleeping/working, i think he woulda needed some help. Lesson? Girls are shady and don't leave your gun at home!

      like jake said, if my date doesn't like it she can pound sand.

      If I were on a date, I would pocket carry so the gun would stay secure when I pull off my pants to access my other big gun. Keep my money in the other pocket to pay for the date. Ok I lied. It's not that big

      Dating. Well, my wife is pretty firm in her opinion about me not dating, so that part is a non-issue.

      Now when she and I go out to dinner etc. I carry strong side OWB in a Comp-Tac paddle or Milt Sparks 55BN. I like to say that I carry about half the time; the half that I'm awake.

      Have you ever had to brandish your arm while on the date? Or how about brandish the arm in general?

      We of the old school do not beleive in brandishing firearms. When the gun clears its shoot time not show time.

      Oregon is where it happened. Yea your question is fair though because when I first started carrying on dates, I knew that there could potentially be some awkward moments or a girl gets freaked out. But it hasn't happen to me yet. Only probably 1/100 people will be weird about it. But its crazy because I hear stories of peoples families finding out they CCW and going ballistic. I know my folks were weird about it, it took them awhile to get adjusted now they don't mind at all.

      If I'm on a date it's with my wife. And yes I do CC on 'dates'. I'd sure hate to take my lady out for the evening and end up getting mugged or worse because I'd chosen to go unarmed. She and I both have a concealed carry permit so we're usually both armed when we are out and about. I normally carry my Ruger P345 in a Don Hume IWB holster.

      What does she carry? Have you guys ever had to bust out the two guns simultaneously for bigger effect? That would be pretty insane and would make the person sh*t themselves. I think you would agree.

      I can't stand it any more! The following post is rated X.


      When I'm out on a date, I carry in a centrally-located Smartcarry.
      That way, when she passes her hand casually over my equipment, she will find that I am loaded and ready.
