      My answer is I do not carry in the house but there is always a handgun within reach. Why don't I carry in the house? I live in an upscale community with limited access (island) and it is a mini police state. Regards, Richard :-D

      BTDT... I understand and agree, I always feel better when there are more people around me carrying guns. It may be a false sense of security, but it does make me feel more comfortable none the less.

      I think what Kansas45 ment was that Kansas has passed Concealed Carry, Kansas has had open carry for a long time.

      YES. My gun, at home, is always on me or next to me. Here in the DFW area it is not uncommon for someone to kick in your door, beat and rob the entire family. Then mabey kill the whole family.

      Yes, I have read about that there, and in Houston. Usually, though, it's quite often drug related - it just takes the cops a little while to figure out. But, you are right. You never know what could happen.

      You guys all sound like my dad. He always has his CCW on him at all times at home. I remember about a year ago when he had this S&W 629DX with this long barrel that was like 12" and he used to carry it around the house on his belt and used to make a joke saying that if his belt didn't keep us kids in line then the sight of a .44 magnum will. He was so right too. :P

      No, because my two kids like to wrestle with me too much. A loaded weapon and kids jumping on me, not a good combination. But they are always close.

      Most of the time I'm carrying at home, except when my granddaughter (3yo) is over. For the same reasons listed.

      I'm not so worried about that. I carry at home all the time and wrestle with the kids on a daily basis. I have aa quality firearm in excellent working condition. It's not going to discharge if bumped. It's in a quality holster that has the trigger covered and provides excellent retention. For gun to go off, the kids would have to disarm me and then fire. If a six and a two year old can do that, then I need to get rid of all my guns and rely on Louisville Slugger for my protection because I have no business carrying a gun.

      I agree Todd. I do this not so much for my sake, but to keep the wife happy. She understands all of what you brought up and agrees that my CCW has the same qualifications. Just eases her mind when I'm playing with her ONLY grand daughter. Sometimes you just have to sacrifice. When I remove it to play with her, it's on top of the armoire where I can reach it if needed and put it back in the holster when playtime is over.

      I don't make any real attempt to hide it when I'm here at home. So anyone in the house can see it easily. If I'm going to tumble with the kids I'll take it off. I really don't think about it much being it's always with me. Well....Will be when I get my new Ronco Shower holster

      I shoot almost daily weather permitting (damn Ky rain this year!) I do have an overhang I can use to shoot in the rain but I'm up in the air a little so it's usually Rifle shooting then. But any one of a few pistols is always on me and if not it;s close. Dang people are crazy anymore. Home invasions looking for meds and stuff to sell to get them

      If it isn't on my person, it's on the bedside table next to my wristwatch. No exceptions.

      J-Frame in the pocket at home, always. If you are going to encounter BGs here in TN, the chances are best that it will be a home invasion. Too many "entrepeneurs" pulling up the driveway to try to get you to pay them to cut the grass, fix the driveway, or some other job. I feel for them (most are decent out-of- work guys, but it leaves you open to roving thieves and you can't tell the difference just by looking at them.) At times I get real tempted to do the "Secondhand Lions" bit and sit on the front porch with iced tea and a Mossberg 500!
