As far as otherwise affecting where I go, I always try to avoid places I *think* I might actually *need* my gun. I see no reason to court trouble.
My gun(s) is with me everywhere....at home or away. If I go somewhere where I absolutely cannot carry (rare) it's locked in a vault in my vehicle.

I carry when I can. When I can't, I still have one in my backpack which I have with me 24/7.

I don't drink, don't fly now that I'm a civilian again, and have little to no need to go into a Federal Building (or any building that is gun free).

No matter which route I take, going from my home to my work places me in dangerous areas - often just for being a much lighter skin color.

While I don't purposely go to certain places just because they have a certain level of danger, I also don't avoid them (as in, I won't go an hour or even 30 mins out of my way just to avoid a certain "dangerous" area).

Whenever I walk out my door I am armed. However, I still keep aware of what is going on around me and try my best to avoid dangerous situations.

Isn't it interesting that they make the rest of the process so difficult that, by the time you get to the psych test, you've been driven crazy???
