    More often than not I do not carry while at home.

    But I have several loaded guns around the house.

    I'm buying my first handgun, a Kahr P9, and plan on carrying it around as much as possible. My wife is a little edgy about the whole thing. She's already telling me where she doesn't want me to carry it before I even bring it home. I wish she could see my point of view about responsibly carrying a gun for protection. She thinks since I'm a klutz I shouldn't carry around more than a butterknife and not unless it's made of plastic. I'm gonna take her down to the range every opportunity I get to get her comfortable with us owning one.

    Since the kids are gone, there is one in every room. Plus two big dogs helps.

    i believe there is nothing wrong with carrying at home, its the fastest way to your weapon incase you need it inside your home, i've never been one to take the risk of a home invasion, and being beaten or murdered because i was fumbling with my safe keys while being charged by an armed assailant. better safe than dead

    Cool

    Not quite that paranoid to have to carry around the house. Not far away from it at anytime though.

    No, since I am usually in my undies lol


    But if I'm at home alone I'll usually keep one gun in the room that I'm in, which is close to our main entry door.


    Another gun is somewhere else.

    A few years earlier, and I would consider this to be a little much.

    But yes, in this day and age of home invasions and such I think you can never be too prepared.


    Just make sure it's always within easy reach...and ready to go.

    If there's someone like a handyperson working on something inside my home or movers bringing in furniture, then I carry absolutely.

    I don't necessarily carry it indoors unless there's something ugly going on the neighborhood. When I lived in Willimantic there were a couple of home invasions not far from me so I carried a lot indoors and out.

    I would first of all "harden" your perimeter: e.g.; door and window locks. Plant thorn bushes under the windows (but don't lose your keys!). Dogs are a good early warning system, even little ones. So are Siamese cats for that matter.

    I'd be careful who I opened the door to and wouldn't open it at all at night unless I knew who was coming. I'd know exactly where other people in the house were at all times, especially kids. It's a lesson in situational awareness inside your house.

    I do carry at home a vast majority of the time. The only time I don't is when I am busy with an activity where it is unneccessarily dangerous or very uncomfotable (both are extremely rare) Also, I live in a very rural area just like robinpa, and my dogs are my number 1 security. They are very good at alerting even if someone goes by the house "slower than normal". Its always good to have that extra minute or so, especially if I were to really need it.

    I clicked "yes" even though I may not be wearing one at all times, there is not ANY room in my house that I am out of "arms reach" of a firearm of some type.

    well i used to think it was much too, then one day i got back from work *armed security* and still had my weapon on my belt, i was in the fridge looking for munchies when i heard the screen on my window move, i went into the living room, hand on weapon and saw some gangster punks leg coming through the window, gun came out shade went up, he went to jail, after that, no matter where i am besides bank or post office, my weapon is holstered at my side

    From the time I get dressed till the time I undress I have at least one gun on me and I do not take it off during the day no matter where I am. To many innocents have been killed by bad guys in "no gun zones."

    10/14/2009 1830 CDT: As I type at my computer, my 637 is resting in an Uncle Mikes in my right front pocket, 2 Bianchi speed strips in the watch pocket of my jeans.
