When I got my CC, the instructor threw the whole class for a loop. He asked us what the "legal limit" was for carrying a concealed weapon. People started blurting out guesses....".08".....".05"........".12".

Then after a short pause, he said "There isn't one." Basically meaning that if you're stopped by an LEO, if he so much as has a hunch that you've been drinking, you can lose your license. I don't go to bars these days anyway and I haven't actually carried a gun on me in years, but I would never in a million years combine the two. Pretty good deterrent, IMO.
