    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.

    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.


    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.

    Do you carry on your person while at home??

    Yes I carry at home. You see I live & work at a commercial goldmine with recreational panning also. I'm a "micro manager" so I'm in every phase of the ooperation, it seems. 99% of the people are law abiding, BUT.

    I carry at home sometimes, usually if I have been somewhere or am going somewhere. Once I'm just at home chilling out for the day/night, I can't manage it....haven't come across a pair of lounge pants that will support a holster yet

    However, the Glock is never far and its always ready to go.

    Had a bit of an issue one time......my aunt recently moved back to our area, so naturally we gave her a house key. Was home alone one day, got out of the shower and heard someone moving around the house. Naturally, I grabbed my gun and proceeded out my bedroom door down the hallway. Came out of the hallway, gun at low ready position ready to rock, and there's my aunt sitting in the den. That's the only time I've ever thought I had a situation, luckily it turned out to be nothing. Still, its always nearby and ready to go.

    I carry around the house when I have been carrying that day. Unfortunately as a school teacher, I can't carry during most of my normal day. But I usually have something on me most of the evenings and weekends.

    I posted a "YES".

    When I'm home, I don't spend much time indoors. But... when I am indoors, I'm usually frequenting here or another firearm related forum. Although this time of year fantasy football takes up a bit of my indoors time.
    Anyways, if I'm indoors. I'm usually on some type of forum, or tuned into ESPN in which case when the telly is on ESPN I'm still browsing the forums in the meantime. And during this time my weapon sits right next to me, and the moment I'm moving throughout my house and yard, I"m OWB carrying with a cheapo Uncle Mikes nylon holster. It's kind of a pain when I'm preparing to head out the door, becuase I carry around town IWB. So the belt has to come partially off. But after doing this ritual for some 4 years now. It's almost second nature. I guess almost is a wrong word. It is second nature!


    Cheers,

    SIGness

    I started doing it once.
    Open carry is legal in my state but local laws make it a crime. Go figure. I have CCW but!
    I did not have a shirt on over the pistol and I walked out to the truck.
    Live in a condo park. While no one saw, it turned me off of carrying around the house.
    From time to time I will keep a pistol with me. By my chair, take it with me around the house but I do not carry it on me.

    My pistol is always loaded within reach while at home. It gives me piece of mind, and if thats not enough. There is a mini14 ready to go, always very close as a back up.

    I would like to carry at home because I would hate to have someone break in and harm my family cause I couldn't get to my gun safe in time. Unfortunately my wife is very afraid of guns and I have not been able to get her over it.

    I do most all the time, or the firearm is close enough I could sneeze on it.

    Last year we had a trio of thugs kicking in back doors and stealing laptops while people were out.

    I am legally blind and don't drive so it always looks like noone's home when the wife is out or at work.

    I must say, I was always kind of waiting for them to kick in my back door. Kinda always wanted to see 3 grown men S&$t themselves.
