    Since in the non-winter seasons, I carry a Kel-Tec P3AT.....
    And I carry it in a wallet holster......
    If I'm wearing pants-----I'm carrying! :-D

    Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. It kind of depends. I'm working on carrying more often, home is a good place to start.

    My CCW goes on with my clothes and comes off with them at night. The only time I don't have it is where it is illegal.

    Now that I have the Kel-Tec P3AT. It's in my front pocket at all times. When I get home I take my side arm off a put it in a drawer.

    The rule at the house is:

    The rule at the house: If you see a gun out, consider it LOADED & on DUTY. Carry @ home = no. I am more concernd about coming back into my house after being away for awhile.

    Sometimes I carry at home but my 185 lb. Mastiff makes me feel fairly protected when I'm not packing.

    Since we have no kids at home I always have a hand gun within easy reach. When someone comes to the door I have one concealed on me. We keep about six loaded hand guns on duty at home. It would be hazardous to anyones health to crash into our house.

    Yes, and it's a good thing I do... It saved my family once!

    I'm a believer!

    Sure, NRA did a write up on our story. Click on the www at the bottom of my post, then you can read their article... They were pretty thorough, with only a couple of small discrepancies...
    I'll say this about NRA, they were the only ones that seemed to care.

    Same here.Also have an alarm system that during the day that tells when a door are window is opened,even which one.At night after the dog comes in for the night it is set for all the windows and doors to dial the monitor people.When we go to bed set it to activate the motion detectors.Had to replace the front door lock twice.One was a piece of mental in the lock,the last time a lock pick broke off in it.We use to leave the dog and cat food on the patio in the back of the house.Possums would climb the fence and the dog would go to the back door and bark.I just got the single barrel .410 and killed them.One night he started raising hell and I checked and saw nothing.The next morning the wife ask what I was doing to the plastic box that the phone and TV cable connections were in.The box was ripped of the side of the house and they had tried to cut the security tag on the power meter but ended up twisting it off.The wire cutters could not cut the hardened wire but left marks where they tried.We live in the country and or on a rual elect coop and they also sell the alarm systems.So I mount the box back and call the power company to replace the meter tag.Now for the scary part.A friend that works for the power company lives down the street and he came out to replace the tag.At 3 in the after noon the same day his front door was kicked down but the alarm system scared them off.No more dog and cat food left out.I think his mistake was having his name on the mail box and telephone number listed.See the name on the mail box and call several times to see if some body is home.I talked to the local county deputy that patrols our area and he said when they cut the phone line and pull the power meter it is not your usual drug addict and ask do you have a safe in the house and I do, a big one.The only people that come in the house are the termite inspector and my drug head loud mouth grand son that ever saw it in the bed room that I know off.Sad to say but the grand son does not want to get off drugs.He actually draws a social security check every month because he was judged to incompedent to ever hold a job.Fried brain.He is only 23.Social services says it is cheaper than to put him in a mental hospital.He is not allowed in the house any more.So every body that pays S.C. tax buys his pot,his favorite drug now.Sorry for the long post and don't put your name on the mail box.
