    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.

    I'm in the same boat as you, my wife tolerates it in the safe but goes crazy when I wear it. Part of the problem is she's a teacher and every day her liberal friends and co workers cram anti gun talk down her throat.

    I retired two years ago from 18 years of High school teaching. But I started my teaching career after I retired from 30 years active duty as a Marine!. Many teachers are of the "out of sight,out of mind" school. They deal with children all day and live in a child's world for the most part. When they do encounter a "bad" child, he or she is shuttled off to an "alternative school" or "behavior class". They are then handled by others and are out of their "ideal class" world. I love teachers as a group because they do sacrifice much of their time and emotion to help children. I always felt it was a noble calling, but I was often amazed at the naivette of many of my fellow teachers. They lived in a world that just isn't there. They usually live in a nicer neighborhood than their students and make more money than many of the students' parents. Teachers always seem amazed when their wunderkind (in their minds) students do something vicious and mean. Many students live in a vicious and mean world and don't see any other way to act. t
    Too many teachers carry this Utopian vision into the outer world, where it isn't practical. Some teachers have lived outside of the classroom and are much more practical. Not all teachers are liberals, I had many teacher friends who were Conservative and realistic about life. You might see if you can sort of slide her towards talking to some of these people.

    Don't even get me started I end up being the only conservative at their party's and get together's and feel like I live in different world sometimes.

    My wife is a teacher. She teaches in a school with a lot of low income families and substantial gang presence. She doesn't get why I get so pissed about the fact that teacers can't even carry pepper spray due to the school's "Zero-tolerance" weapons policy. Last time we had that argument was because the school "security" officer who is also unarmed was assaulted by one of my wife's students. The school didn't even press charges against the little turd. I told her flat out that if one of her students ever assaulted her that she better file a report/press charges and hope the police find them before I do.
