    Really? Did you dress up? What were you?

    I'm at work, a no guns workplace. So, no gun, no costume either.

    I did not dress up. But I walked around with my 23 year old daughter and my grandson. I was packing of course.

    I was jc. I did not dress up. Just had my pocket pistol while I sat on the driveway handing out candy. I just thought it'd be an entertaining thread.

    My costume was controversial enough, I don't think adding a gun would help it at all.. Haha

    I know one guy in Kalifornistan that dressed up like a 20's gangster. The police did not think his toy gun was funny since it was painted all black. If you are in Kalifornistan, paint your gun to look like a toy.:rolleyes:

    In general, not a good idea to mix live real firearms with a costume. Single action shooting sports excepted.

    I DID have one Halloween that I DID carry- "in costume". In my LEO days, did Exec Security for Governor/ First Family. Yeah, that includes the kids. Usually if we were going to a football game, etc, we would change into sweatshirt and jeans, etc.

    One Halloween First Lady asked if we could take the youngest (age 6) trick or treating- two of the older kids had friends coming over for a party- and the kids sort of considered us as uncles and aunts.

    When I took him out that night to make the rounds, I was in full uniform- and everyone thought I was in costume.

    Naw- the little crumbsnatcher was actually a nice kid- but I did go thru the take and remove anything that looked questionable, same as with my kids.

    Anyway, I had my own goodies that I got while taking him around. :D

    I did not dress up... I did carry while taking the kids trick or treating. I did not see any reason to "dress down";-)

    This could be a concern in the future. I have a Scots Kilt outfit, and the only place the gun can go is in the sporran that hangs in front. Inside-the-belt won't work, and the kilt has no pockets, so my usual pocket carry is out. I may pick up a bellyband for that specific need.
