    Default concealed carry and judgeing

    with illinois about to approve to approve cc. if you are judgeing and some one comes up packing, how do you handle it? the way i see it if you see it, they should hide it. if it is in a holster it would be different then it needs to be covered. hrc says only approved guns at the line. i can see how you handle it on private grounds but if you are on state grounds where it's ok how do you tell some one that can't carry when the supreme court says it's ok

    There is absolutely no reason for a handler to be carrying a weapon at the line. Lock it and leave it in the truck. If there is any grief call it "exposed training equipment" and say bye-bye.

    Is his a hypothetical question or did someone actually wear a gun to the line?

    I CC when at RMRC trial grounds, but when I walk to the line I remove my side arm - I carry rat shot because the place has rattle snakes and I've had enough close encounters on those grounds not want to leave my sidearm in my vehicle. As a judge I could care less if a handler is carrying, I'm there to judge the dog work.

    That's the way I look at it too.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    I agree too- judge the dog- but honestly, not sure why anyone needs to pack it to the line! Mine is with me when Im out airing, and in the hotel room, and the truck, but if you dont trust the dog people enough to not pack to the line- perhaps you should take to another sport! (I dont trust the snakes though FOM- if they were an issue at tests where I was too, I'd have it on me also. yuck!)

    Precisely my view as well. Provided there's no AKC rules or other state laws that would forbid it........I'm not going to worry about it either.

    I feel safer knowing that people are carrying. Just judge the dogs not the people.

    But Bob concealed is concealed. You wouldn't know, and didn't know when handlers were carrying
    i can promise you have never seen me when I was not carrying. I am not alone, I know a number of "our" group that are always armed. The old what you don't know won't hurt you, unless you hurt me...". It is a part of my daily dress and in the 25+ years that it has been so I have never had a single incident and would be no more likely to have any incident while running a dog than I would doing anything else. No big deal.
    Judge the dog work and don't worry about what is in the handlers pants.
