    I always carry from the time I get dressed in the morning to when I go to sleep at night(except at work). I get used to wearing it so Im more comfortable with it on. I feel like im forgetting something if I dont have that lump at my right hip.

    If I'm not packing, one is close at hand, but most of the time it's on me.

    I only carry at home when I'm in the yard. I can get to a pistol at my place in a matter of seconds if I needed to

    If my pants are on, my gun is on. If where I am is legal to carry, I am. Carrying a gun for protection isn't a hobby. It is a way of life.

    Almost always. If not on me, at least one is within reach.

    A home invasion will be met with gunfire.

    When I'm home, it's either OWB or within arms reach. Always.

    I don't carry at home, as I don't feel that there's a need. I do keep handguns within easy reach in the house- my carry gun, an XD 45, is on the nightstand, and there's either a Glock 19 or a Glock 26 in a concealment cutout book in the bedroom as well mainly for my wife, as she prefers the smaller lighter guns should she need to use one. There's a Beretta 92FS in another concealment bock on the bottom shelf of my end table by the recliner. Needless to say, there are no children in the house, and none come to visit. My wife is aware of the location of the guns, and knows that if she she's a gun in the house, it's loaded, and ready for immediate use. Eventually, I want to get some of the neat concealment picture frames, so the guns can be on the wall instead of the end table, etc. For anyone interested, their available here: http://tinyurl.com/kplvk

    I carry as much as I possibly can which is most of the time, never know when you might have an intruder....sadly home invasions have become all too common these days.

    Packing at Home

    If I'm dressed, I'm packing.

    Once I get comfortable for the night I actually carry it around with me.

    I agree with freakshow and many others, it might not always be the most comfortable, but If you're going to carry, do it to the max. Carry wherever and whenever you possible can. Your weapon should be an extension of you.

    Good poll ... I "sometimes" carry when at home .. I'm carrying now, but I don't always. But, I'm never more than 2 steps away, as I pretty much have a pistol or revolver in every room in the house. And, my wife and kids know exactly where every loaded gun is laying, and how to use it.

    My rule .. no one in my house .. no kids' friends visiting without me knowing and locking everything up in the safe. That's a pain, but I think it's worth it. Sure, I could arm myself all the time, but what about when I'm not home ... I want my family to have access to a firearm regardless where they are in my house.

    No one enters my home unannounced .. my wife hates that beeping every time the door opens .. but .. well, it makes me smile. When I'm in the yard (even cutting grass), walking around the block, or in the shed .... yep, I'm always armed.

    I haven't read the other posts yet, but will do so now.
