    Not exactly a handgun, but I have an old Enfield 'jungle carbine' with a sling I drag around with me when I work in the yard and in the woods, cutting wood, etc. Never had to use it, like to shoot off a few shots to relax.
    So, one day I hear my wife screaming, she out in the yard about 75 yards away. So I run to where she is at, carrying the old Enfield. There is a rabid possum hissing and shreiking at her, about 15 away from her. One shot of that old 303 and possum gone.

    No I don't carry on me while at home but I am never more than a few feet away from a firearm. The only time I will carry at or around the house is when there is an extended power outage such as after a hurricane.

    It is always within reach. After reading this I am considering ccw in the house all the time.

    I don't carry around the house. That may change when I get a decent carry rig. I'm still waiting for my permit to come, so it's a moot point right now anyway since I can't carry once I leave the house.

    I live with my parents and they don't want me to even have one gun, let alone carry it.

    Certainly

    Only time not carrying was when my son, now a U.S. Marine, begged to dis-and-ass while blindfolded...

    I don't have a firearm on me unless I was carrying away from the home, but I have several guns within quick accessibility

    I carry my Px4 .45 either OWB or IWB around my property at all times, my wife also has her LCR .38spl that she is quite proficient with and always has it within reach if I'm not around. We have become more aware lately since 2 homes in our neighborhood have been broken into. We also have a home security system that will if nothing else give you a 'heads up'. Our 2 dogs also bark at anything that moves. You can never be too safe.

    >>I have two handguns located in the home. With no children and few visitors...I feel safe with them about.<<

    I'm in the same boat, although there are more than two stashed around the house.

    If I ever feel the need to carry in my home, I think I will move. Strategic placement is sufficient for me.

    I carry a little NAA .22 Mini Mag revolver in my pants pocket.

    I figure at least I'm armed with a .22WMR until I can get to my .45

    " You can never be too safe." There ya go. Couple months ago two places were subject to armed home invasion a half mile from me. Boy Scout rules apply 24/7.

    Not around the house...but I do put my hand gun in my chester drawer to

    retrieve it, if necessary. At night if someone knocks on the door, I grab my

    gun and put in my pocket and answer the door.

    Moved out to the suburbs 4 months ago, i'm surrounded by older longterm homeowners, it's a very quiet neighborhood that is about 3 minute drive from the Police Dept. Never carry in the house but have a couple of weapons ready to go. Have privacy fence in the back with locked gates, good lighting at all entrances, good quality window and door locks, not to mention a lab that is very loud. If things ever get bad enough that I feel compelled to carry in my home, I'll move.

    I'm kind of shocked at the "If I feel the need to carry at home I will move". Must be nice to be able to just pick up and move like that. I have my .38sp with me at all times at least. Last year in the neighborhood we just moved into there was 3 911 calls. 2 medical one domestic dispute. And while I feel I don't need to carry in my house I would rather be safe than sorry. I'm sure people have been robbed and attacked in their own home that wished they would have had a gun on them.

    You do what you want by all means. But with me and my family I don't want to take chances.

    It's a free country so anyone can pickup and move if they want. Unless of course one has put themselves in slavery with debt, or made other bad decisions. There are too many nice places to live to stay were one does not feel safe. Pistol in the coat closet and shotgun in the bedroom are sufficient for me. I don't need a gun on my hip.

    I used to not carry at home, but even in a little town like this crime is getting bad. 4 teens just got convicted for breaking into a man house and shooting him to death (although he didn't resist). I'm self-employed and therrefore at home during the day alone, so I carry my G22 in a CBST (comfortable as can be). With the rise in violent crime, I'm not going to get caught off guard.
