    We always keep them around, but very very rarely carry at "home". Only when on the road so to speak. We keep them handy in case there is a critter that needs shot, so I guess that would include self-defense.

    I realize not everyone is in a situation where they have choices, or the options are not there, so don't take this wrong......

    But for ME--personally, at this point in time.....if I had to live in a place which necessated me carrying a gun around my home--I think I'd move. But that's just how I feel.

    these folks probably never dreamed it could happen in their quiet little Kansas home either.

    One well known home invasion is the November 15, 1959 quadruple murder of the Clutter family by Richard "Dick" Hickock and Perry Edward Smith during a home-invasion robbery in rural Holcomb, Kansas. The murders were detailed in Truman Capote's "nonfiction novel" In Cold Blood.

    about 90% of the time, and yes, quite often at home on 8 acres.

    Here's one reason, more recent than In Cold Blood, posted on DC HERE

    'Course, I can't get the SO to carry at all.

    It could be worse!

    Yeppers. Always & everywhere.


    Here's a few links to some of the other times this question has come up:

    Do you carry IN your home?

    Do you carry in your own back yard?

    Why you should carry at home.

    Why carry at home?

    My situation is much like yours OP, and I dont carry outside but am strongly considering it. I am careful when I answer my door...why wouldnt I need to be as careful when strangers (very rare) stop by my property when I'm out in the barn or shop or pasture?

    I dont carry in the house but I've got my firearm immediately accessible in my safe/bedroom (no kids, not locked up or hidden) and it would be very difficult to cut me off before I got to it.
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Carry at home. Makes carrying easier and more natural when not home.
    I was never a hero, but I am thankful I served among them.

    Yes, my life, liberty and pursuit of happiness (i.e. My family) is my responsibility. I don't or won't rely on anyone else to ensure their or my safety. Be safe.

    I put a gun in my waistband as soon as I get dresses and take it off when I go to bed, unless I have to go to the school or post office. I got used to it pretty quick. Started doing it the afternoon I got to pick up my permit. My wife thinks I'm crazy for carrying in the house just watching TV, but there are some unsavory people in this town, and every once in a while a door gets kicked in. I like carrying, it's legal, so I do.

    I only carry when there's a chance of a violent encounter that may require a firearm.

    I've tried to come up with some compelling reasons for me not to carry at home, and drew a blank.

    I must admit, I don't carry at home, but I have a firearm within reach wherever I am sitting at home just in case. I found it very difficult to carry on most weekdays for me. I can't carry at work, can't have any weapons on the property, can't leave it locked in my car at work (on their property), I drive to and from work during the week and that's about it. So I guess like another poster said, I too am more of a weekend warrior. I carry everywhere on the weekends or when I am off work.
