Pocket carried the 642 to Grandmas Thursday afternoon.

Morning and evening it was the Ruger BH FT .44 Special in pursuit of deer. It was nearby at night too.

We entertained family in our own home and didn't travel anywhere, so I didn't feel any need to carry. With all the adult males and two large dogs in the home, all I carried was platters and wine bottles to the table.

Since my warm coat has a nice cross draw position inner pocket.
Glenn E. Meyer, could you show that, or where you got it. Great idea that I have never seen offered.
Don’t see many clothing stores in my aria advertising coats with holsters.
Thank you.
Glock 26 with many mods and a 17 magazine.
Had to stay in the truck since my sister in-law would pass out, become a screaming anti gunner, call the police and notify President Obama, Bidden, the ATF and the Braddy bunch if she found out I was carrying in her house.

I stayed at home with the family and ate but had a S&W 1006 near by just incase a unwelcome visitor stopped by or the turkey got out of line.

Me and my dad started cooking when we were done hunting. Might not have been as concealed as the rest of you, but the 760 3006 and his Savage weren't to far out of reach.

I carried a WW I vintage Colt 1911 in a OWB to both Thanksgiving dinners I went to, they are the best bring a pie eat and no clean up or leftovers to deal with.

So... I'm usually a poly/striker guy, but the first firearm I ever became smitten with was the CZ 75B, and that flame hasn't burned low. I'm tempted to offer you something for a night alone with that beauty...

Taurus 25-PLY,,,

I carried the smallest handgun I own,,,
Because my brother, who is a liberal musician,,,
Said his girlfriend (an otherwise sweetheart) was nervous.

So I promised them that they wouldn't even know I was carrying.

My Taurus 25-PLY stayed in my pocket the entire time.
(Even when another guest started playing his banjo.)



To their credit they didn't say "Do not carry a gun in my house.",,,
She simply stated her nervousness about "live" guns,,,
So my brother asked me to keep it hidden.

I respected their wishes.

I love this answer, lol. Seriously though, with a nervous girl friend and a liberal musician brother, I would say they handled it very well. Many others would have faced banishment. I have a suggestion aaroundghraham. Offer to take your brother and his sister target shooting! Worked for my wife and sister in law!

Hello kiethdog,,,

Quote:

Actually my brother grew up around guns just like I did,,,
Of the three brothers my Momma raised,,,
He was the best shot.

In his youth he was an avid small game hunter,,,
Now he says, "I've shot everything I ever wanted to."

His attitudes aren't truly anti-gun,,,
So much as they are anti-violence in nature.

His girlfriend (whose house hosted Turkey Day dinner) is a retired school teacher,,,
Her attitudes on firearms are definitely live and let live,,,
Just not in her house please.

It's all good,,,
He's my little brother,,,
I love him dearly and respect his lady.

Aarond

I knew that I would be drinking a bit too much, so I carried a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife (the Scientist model) instead of my pistol.

A turkey, it had my colt LW commander inside the cavity in case someone got out of hand while I was carving it up.... lol


In all reality, we all have shotguns inside the house loaded up and ready to ock. A handgun just dont do it for me. If you read the thread awhile ago about my cousin getting shot 5 times with a 357 and living today, well a handgun just dont cut it IMHO.

They look cool and all, but the shotgun will take the bad guys out. Couldnt get it into the turkey tho so I went with the colt this tme...
