thanks for the replys...

... I'm not "totally" uncomfortable down town big city... but I guess I'd be considered a "country boy"... so in general, 90% of the reason I got my permit to carry, was for going "inner city"... I feel I'd need it a lot less ( percentage wise ) in the smaller towns, than in "down town"... I certainly understand the "not bringing it into the stadium" but have also seen plenty of vehicals get broken into "down town" so we try to keep everything out of sight as much as possible when in parked vehicals... & I certainly refilled my holster as soon as I got back to the truck after the game...

I've personally watched unsavory types work crouded stairways at concerts & big venue events, & have been caught off gaurd ( many years ago ), when we let ourselves stay visiting in a parking lot, too long after the crouds thinned, by a couple bad guys that got way too close for comfort...

I'm a pretty big guy, & my brothers bigger, so we are not looking like easy targets, but we also look more like tourists than inner city guys, so we may be percieved as worth while marks ??? I try to keep my side arm handy as much as possible when I'm out of my element...
