    What exactly is a concierge in France? As an English word, it means someone at a hotel who can get you decent tickets to a play or (if the hotel is fancy enough and you know how to whisper) tell you how to find other, less licit entertainments.

    I assume you don't live in a hotel, so.....is it more like a doorman?

    I conceal carry.

    Ought to be fun in downtown Dallas tomorrow for the start of the NRA convention. I'm not going and I am not a member, just have to take "She Who Must Be Obeyed" to Dallas (West Village) for an appointment. She thought we should reschedule but I said no. I think it will be just fine.
    Why do you carry?
    What training have you had of the shoot/don't show police courses? (not usually taught or needed in the military)
    What real life stressful situations have you ever had that you had to draw a gun?
    Combat experience in the Marines?
    You know that combat is not like walking civilian streets, right? (there are no free-fire zones)

    Sort of. It's usually an employee who has an apartment in the lobby and screens visitors, controls operation of elevators, accepts deliveries to the tenants, etc.

    Both definitions 1 and 3 apply: Concierge | Define Concierge at Dictionary.com

    With the advent of digicodes and interphones, most of them have lost their jobs.

    Technically they aren't *mine,* but yes, several in the household. I have my CCW but am woefully undertrained and thus, not comfortable carrying at present.

    We have a couple. No CC for either of us. We bought them because we were bored with the same ole' same ole' and looking for a winter sport. My initial goal was competitive target shooting and "bowling" at the gun club. I played darts for years on bar leagues and this was the next logical step. After two years, I have discovered it is not all that much fun because of how serious you have to be in the gun clubs. I am not paranoid so I don't need to open carry or CC...I am still strong and young enough to protect myself if the need arises.

    I had a CHL for my state and for Utah, but both have expired and I haven't gotten around to renewing them yet. Maybe this month.

    Our daughter has shot in high powered rifle leagues since she was a teen. She even was invited over to Finland to visit one of her sponsors, Lapua Brass which provides her ammo. She considered going into training for the Olympics but life got in the way.

    The Convention itself is a "Gun-free zone." Didn't you know that?
