Re: What pistol do you carry?

New players get a run down on house rules. The biggest part of that is "this is a social game, expect a lot of chatter some of which would be inappropriate in a more formal setting". Don't smoke or vape in the house. Don't bring drugs in the house - if you have to take a toke, do that outside too. Don't get excessively drunk/stoned. Please keep your firearms in the car or better at home. Please be friendly and social - avoid the hoodie, sun glasses & ear bud act. Don't make the game wait while you are playing on your phone, risking the loss of your hand. Hands are tabled immediately when everyone is all-in.

I don't tell players things that seem obvious. I assume they know not to cheat. I assume the players know how to use a toilet and flush it. I assume they know not to kick the dog. Please don't "harvest" my vintage poker chips.

Sometimes obvious things need saying, but I wait until those types of things emerge. Still there are rare surprises where I am dumfounded by an act of stupidity. I don't have standing rules for such things. They get dealt with as a one time event.

There has never been a soon-to-be new player walk away after hearing the house rules.

I have three players on life-ban for being bad and breaking the rules. None of these are firearm violations.

Re: What pistol do you carry?

It is ridiculous that anyone, just because he has a concealed carry permit, would assume everyone would be ok with one being brought in their house without asking first.

Would you come into someone's house for the first time and immediately disrobe and take a dump on the kitchen table? I'm pretty sure that's legal.

This whole thread has jumped the shark.

Re: What pistol do you carry?

Some good points have been made here about Home Games players and Host responsibilities by responders. OP was an obvious Troll trying to get a rise out of folks by pretending to be a gunslinger in a tough neighborhood, still OP managed to get some folks to make some valuable retorts on guns and games. Not all a waste at all!

The rules of several private games I’ve played in specifically prohibited players from carrying firearms. I doubt anyone was ever searched though.

If somebody brought a weapon into my house, for whatever event we’re holding, he would be kicked out and banned immediately. I guess with a good friend, I would give one warning but I highly doubt any of my friends would ever do that. Bringing your gun into a house where kids live is an absolute no-no. At least if you don’t live in a rural area.

That all makes sense to me, the way Dr.Strange posted about him and his wife catching people is what made me start to wonder. I will make the point that if that if no guns whatsoever is your positon, then its a fallacy to permit LEO to bring them to the game.
