Do You CCW While Drinking

Do you CCW while drinking? Carrying a firearm is a great responsibility. What choice are you going to make?

Your reflexes and depending on how much you drink your decision making will be impaired.  On top of this, if you have to take lethal action, be sure your legal position will be much weaker if have been drinking. In many states, it is illegal to drink and carry anyway.

A good way to look at it is, would you drive under the same circumstances? Something to think about.

Here's a good video that further discusses this. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.


  1. I would never carry while drinking or after drinking.

  2. I never drink, but even if i did, I would never carry. No responsible gun owner would carry even after having just one drink.

  3. No! I am very conunticiencious on that. If I decide to have a drink I’ll lock up my weapon until I’m 100%.

  4. I agree, Carrying a firearm is a great responsibility. Appreciate your effort to make awareness on firing range responsibilities.

  5. I’m a no also. I may have a drink or two at home while in reach of my home defense firearm but never while I am out. My state does allow entering a bar or restaurant while carrying but I just drink coffee. Gotto keep sharp and alert for anything now a days.

  6. No, not legal in my state, but you NEVER know what is going to happen!

  7. In your own home if your laying on your back someone is on top of you and You’ve been drinking you can shoot. Worst case my wife takes my gun and takes action. We are almost always close. on alert always on alert
