I'm sure we all agree that alcohol and guns don't mix, BUT what about self defense? If you are going out drinking, do you not CCW? What about if you are drinking at home? Do you lock up the guns and hope some malcontent doesnt come visiting that night? What if some malcontent did come to your home and you were drunk? Would you still grab a gun, or would you react differently?

Just imagining the hell you'd suffer in court if you shot someone while under the influence is enough to keep me from drinking while a gun is in arms reach, home or not.

In FL it is against the law to be in possession of firearms if you are drinking or under the influence... There is an exception to that law if you are in your house.
Firearms and booze do not mix, this has been proven time and time again. If you're loaded in your house and someone breaks in, well, go to work on them...

FWIW: A majority of the hardcore shooters I know, don't drink, at all, none, zip.

FWIW: I don't carry a gun if I am or plan to drink, period.
