I would rather have to go to court than to the cemetery. That said, I don't carry on my person, only in my home and car and usually in my desk; i'm not often drunk in my car or at work, but may be at times when at home. If I was home, inebriated to some degree and had a break-in, I would want my firearm at hand.

I don't drain my own targets.

I no longer drink alcohol, but back in those days it was ok to drink and drive while shooting guns out the window!

Man do I miss the good ole' days.

MAYBE in theory....but statistics show home invasions are nearly equal to attacks outside the home. ONe of the things covered in CCW class is that issue. If you are legal to carry, then carry all the time.

In Texas they have 51% signs. Meaning the business makes 51% or more of their money off alcohol sales that are for consumption on site. Meaning bars and bar like places. They have to have the little white sign with a big red 51% sign outside the door. If they do you can't carry there.

And again this thread was for mainly drinking at your home or residence. If someone breaks in, I'm not going to not get a gun because I was drinking. Sorry aint happening

No one in my direct family drinks and I don't plan on it or have a want to even try alcohol so I will never have issues with that.
