    Yes. Everywhere. I was carrying a stainless Colt Commander at my last wedding.

    Perhaps a better question is where not to pack.

    I carry everywhere/everyday. I've had to disarm once this year to go into the courthouse to get a marriage license. Hated it.

    If my properly holstered firearm isn't welcome, I don't go. Most of my family is conservative. My wife has a bleeding heart liberal sister but we don't really deal with her. She's not even sensible.

    I'm always carrying something.
    My oldest daughter is pretty left leaning but yesterday she really surprised me, she bought some furniture at IKEA and wanted to know if we could take my truck to pick up her stuff.
    I thought it would be nice spending time with her so I took her to dinner before we went. I was shocked when she said (Dad you do have a gun with you right) l was pretty proud and we actually talked about getting her some lessons and a carry permit.

    I carried a "bbq gun" to a wedding last Fri night. I'm sure there were plenty of others carrying, nothing was mentioned but I know for sure because, coincidentally, the officiant of the vows happened to be carrying a Glock that he bought from me so...

    One of my best friends wife was mennonite. When he made a visit to her sisters house the brother in law asked him if he was carrying, he said yes. BIL asked him to put it in his car. Surprisingly he did put it in the car. On the next visit the BIL asked him if that was a gun on his side. He raised his shirt to show him it was a cell phone. He did have an ankle holster with a G27 in it

    Normally he wouldn’t go at all but he loves his wife and you know happy wife happy life.

    I did crack me up on the last time when the BIL asked him if he was carrying a gun, he replied “Since you don’t like guns just rest assured that if we’re ever in public together and something bad happens I won’t use the scary gun to protect you or your family.” The BIL just had a blank dumb look on his face.

    Then my buddy said “I’m sure you have already thought about such a situation and have a plan so good for you.” He said his BIL had a look on his face like he was trying figure out the square route of 9,675,547.

    Other than reminiscing, most of the talk was about the lawlessness and riots going on. What I seen today was amazing to say the least. My family is split about 50/50 Democrat and Republican a few libertarians mixed in. All were in agreement the lawlessness must be stopped by whatever means necessary. Which was surprising as well. Many of my die hard Democrat voting family members said they were voting for Trump this year.

    I think if the election isn't rigged Trump wins big this election.

    That said how many people pack a firearm to a family reunion?
    I do.

    Went to my aunts 80th birthday party yesterday. She and most of her friends/family are very “liberal”.
    Her best friend came up to me and said “I’m not sure what you call what you’re doing, “packing?”, I used to be scared when I’d see someone with one. These days I’m glad to see it and feel very safe being next to you.”
    We had a short, pleasant conversation. She actually thanked me for carrying.
    It was nice hearing that from an 80ish year old woman! Especially hearing how her views have changed in just the past couple years.
