Going to church tomorrow... and leaving the piece in the car. Despite the fact that I really think it would be better to carry (the church shootings are still in the back of my mind), I will respect the rules governing a place of worship. Don't really feel comfortable going to the pastor and asking for permission to carry (especially since this is my first time going there). I'll sometimes bend the rules a wee bit, but to me this is one that I'll treat as inflexible. Opinions?

I've been wavering... but as tempted as I am, there are a few things I view as sacred in this world, and a house of God is one of them. Then again, if you look at it from a WWJD perspective, he might say "go for it". Who knows?

Well, in Missouri it's not a crime to do so. All they can do you is ask you to leave, and you face a $100 fine if you refuse to do so and a peace officer has to escort you out. So I'm not worried about breaking the law (I carried in a posted area when I was with a friend who's car didn't lock; I didn't want to leave it in the supermarket parking lot in an unlocked car). I just feel about this the same way I do about not cursing in front of women or children, being polite to my grandma even when she's going on one of her tirades, etc. Now though you have me wondering... maybe it's time to bust out the PagerPal again?

Not posted, pager pal is one of those holsters that's good for it does. It's great at concealing a pistol... just don't count on drawing very quickly from it. The video demos show fast draws, but I found that you need to have a bunch of circumstances just right to get it that quick (pants not sagging too much, shirt being tucked in just right, etc. etc. etc.).

Here's what made me decide: if some loony breaks in and starts killing people left and right, I'll never forgive myself for not carrying and thus not being able to take him out. I'd still try and stop him, don't get me wrong, but un-armed I'd most likely get mowed down before I even got close.
