I think we're looking at two different aspects of HOSPITAL.
1) Care unit (I believe your correct and within the law)
2) ER, clearing house prior to being admitted or discharged (this is the one I hear most about)
That's correct Rick. I think of them as a care unit.

You have a lot more experience than I do regarding the hospital and the laws pertaining to them. Like you said, "this is the one I hear most". We both agree that it's a gray area and I will continue to carry in them until such time as it's better defined in the law.

I hope I don't have to visit a hospital often and if I am caught it will be because I had to use it. In that case I'll take my chances with the jury. I would like to know if any LEO's are on this board and would they arrest someone caught carrying in a hospital.

i started with a Fobus (my first choice of holster BTW since we in GA can open cary with the permit) and then switched to a small of the back Blackhawk leather holster for right hand draw.

i then went to the G21 and got a blackhawk Serpa (it to me sticks out too much from the body and if you are use to the friction lock, the finger lock will catch you off guard)

i then got the G30 and again used a blackhawk until i could locate a Fobus as it fits my body better.

i was looking for a better way to go with a deeper concealment and was wanting a tuckable holster. i was introduced to the Kholster. he is a 1 man operation and makes a VERY nice QUALITY IWB holster. i wear it when it is HOT outside and all i wear is a t-shirt it is real easy to conceal. but now that is is colder i rock the Fobus.

i did use a shoulder holster back when i carried my SW40VE, and that is only good when it is cold out and you have no plans on taking off your coat.

I carry under HR218 and always will.

My humble opinion on a CCR. No problem, now put that CCR in the hands of an idiot and that worries me.

For the past, oh 30 years or so have carried concealed due to the Star or HR218 and in all that time I had one person ever notice I was carrying.

Something about having and not needing....................rather then needing and not having.

Unfortunately, because I'm in and out of so many places restrited by both HR218 and a CCW permit, I've gotten out of the habit of carrying.

I keep it "handy" when travelling.

Got my CCW 6 months ago , kept putting it off for lack of time, but someone hooked me up with a young man who came to the house, did the class , & then to the range, it was simple and less painless than I would have guessed.

Default Yes indeed I do

Got my non-resident CWP while I was still living in the land of no (NY). Had a house built here in '06 - housing market took a nose dive and tanked, and it took a while to sell in NY- but all the while I knew I could carry when I came to the great state of Florida for visits to the new home. Can remember the night our family went for a walking the dog together, and my son knew I was carrying. Our home is on a quiet street in a fairly upscale neighborhood and he asked why I was carrying. I didn't want him to feel unsecure so my answer was simply - because I can.We are now here full time and changed the CWP to a resident CWP. My wife is now a CWP holder also - so we got each other's backs. God Bless Florida - God Bless America.

Just took the CWP class this morning and went to the range for the first time in my life.
99% common sense, but then again if common sense was common, more people would have it.

My son, who is 31, took the class with me. Our goal is to get my wife (his Mom) to go to the range and shoot a 22. She was robbed at gun point at the age of 18 and has had a fear of guns ever since. She is warming up to the idea and has held both of our pistols recently. She will come around, but it has to be on her terms. That fine with me.... the world is to crazy to not be prepared today. Like a previous posted stated, better to have and not need, than to need and not have!!!!

I have to agree with you brother.
Then again, when I was doing this nonsense full time, there were officers that never fired until forced to go to the range.
One guy I had on the line, a warrants officer, had a weapon that would not fire.
My review of the weapon turned up a broken firing pin.

I asked him when the last time was he fired the weapon?
His response: Oh, I don't know?
Sometime last year when "they made us come out to the range!"
Probably broke on the last round and been broken ever since!

As you know, I even got "out of practice" for a while...and it showed

The CCW and 218 mirror each other for the most part, and carry the same restrictions.
The only difference is, 218 is nationwide, regardless of CCW reciprocity

Exactly!
If you are good at it, they never will.

yep

That's why mines always somewhere nearby. I just don't carry in my day to day, due the place I go.

218 or CCW, they're both restricted in many of the place I go

Steve,

May I also suggest that she (preferaby all of you) take a short course (a few hours max) in weapon retention, and disarmament.
Make sure your instructor has some background in the subject matter, and not just some "black belt" that saw this somewhere....I've seen some scary stuff being taught out here

While a weapon is nice to have, there's always the potential for your opponent to remove your weapon and use it against you.
Many LEO's nationwide, are killed with thier own weapons.

It's a short, simple, and with the right instructor, very fun and enjoyable course.
I've had ladies come into my class saying "I could never do that!", and come out grinning like a cheshire cat with a whole new feeling of confidence in thier abilities with thier weapon.


BTW...welcome back
