I am a firearms and tactics instructor and  live in WV where it is legal to carry concealed. I carry a primary pistol and a backup every day even in the 'clean world' where I live.


I have worked some training contracts where firearms were not allowed on the corporation's premises and on some federal installations and  military bases where the same applies. I didn't carry when on premises.


I carry where it is legal and administratively permitted. One does not make an appointment to be assaulted....these things just happen out of the blue.

A bit of a necropost but I'm new to the site...
I am a manager at the wholesale/retail department of a steel/roof sheeting profiling company.
I carry because in South Africa carrying of a firearm is a necessity for self preservation (that's what we call it as opposed to self defence:-)
I carry 24/7 because the risk of being a victim of violent crime is always there.
In South Africa attacks usually involve multiple attackers and firearms.
I have a responsibility to provide for and protect my wife and 5 kids and so carrying of a firearm is really part of my life and I do not feel there is an option to not carry.
If I felt an option existed... I would not carry.

Project Management, I live/work in a relatively safe area. Or you can look at it as an area with a lot of easy targets. I carry all day everyday.
