I carry every where I can. I am not allowed to bring a weapon on the property of work, so I can't there. If I am at home I carry ( right now ) and every where I go when with the family. Not paranoid just prepared. I just don't want to have to run get my firearm if SHTF. Am I crazy? Please elaborate.

You aren't at all crazy.. I think everyone who can carry should carry.

Yeah, I carry always. When the permit laws were relaxed in Oregon I wondered about the advisability of everybody running around armed. That didn't stop me from charging out for my permit. It's been years and there have been no problems that I know about.

I got my permit about 4 months ago and I have carried ever since. I hope to never need to use my firearm, but I will be prepared in case. My wife also got her permit. She doesn't carry as often. She was the one who wanted to get the permits to carry, I think it was so that I would carry when they were with me. I have gone over scenarios with all of my kids and my wife as to how to react in a bad situation. My younger kids (5 & 7) were kind of shocked at first, but now it is just second nature for them. There is more to having the permit than just carrying, you become acutely aware of your surroundings as well. The first thing I do when I enter a new restaurant is excuse myself to the bathroom so that I can figure out how to leave if the need arises, I also make sure we sit in an appropriate place closest to an exit. Funny how your perspective changes.
Sitting on the lake in the boat is peaceful enough, catching fish is just a bonus.

Planning on applying for my CCW permit this year... fortunately I'm in a CCW-friendly county since it's almost impossible in many parts of CA. You just never know.

Most importantly, a gun should NEVER be drawn unless you intend to use it. In the event the gun is fired, the shot should always be intended to kill. If one shot is fired, I would suggest following that with two more.

Agreed, but if you do shoot someone you never say you shot to KILL the subject, you say you shot the subject to stop him from his attack. Judges and Juries do not like to hear people come into court and say I shot him to kill him. It will not bode well for you in trial. I carry a SIG P290 concealed every day as my off duty weapon. It is small enough for pocket carry and it is chambered in 9mm with 6 in the mag and 1 in the pipe.

Man, this is an old thread.

The Glock 36 that I posted at the front of this thread turned out to be the biggest turd that I have ever owned - ALONG WITH THE GLOCK 30SF I BOUGHT RIGHT AFTER IT. That Glock 36 developed an annoying inability to feed and eject. I was having 2-3 malfunctions per magazine. The Glock 30SF also took a nose dive into the crapper. It developed a failure-to-return to battery issue. I ended up selling both the 36 and the 30SF as well as the 21SF I had. I am now Glock-free.

And I forgot all about that Para Ordnance I mentioned. I wish I had that back.

I carry a laptop packpack instead of a briefcase these days. I found one that has a large zippered outer pocket that my SR9c fits in perfectly. Goes with me everywhere I go (except in the bank).

Glock 23 with me always unless I'm on school grounds. I have a permit and I'm going to exercise my right to carry.
