    Pretty much the same.
    Don't bring a knife to a gun fight...unless it's strapped to a gun.

    I put mine on when I put my pants on and I take it off when I take my pants off.

    I think home is the most likely place I'll need it.

    Nope. Not in the house.

    The silly Kel Tec P3AT is kept handy for mowing, yard chores, or vehicle maintenance outdoors. That has emerged as it's primary purpose.

    When I read that most home invasions occur at home, I started to carry at home.

    But seriously, most of the time I have a weapon on my person or within very easy reach.

    Aways 'Armed and Alarmed' when home. As for the Alarm system, it covers more than just the house. My pool deck is very private (from view) and secure against anything less than a very professional type of forced entry, and is considered an OC or CC zone for any family or friends there. I don't spend any time in the front yard (except for occasional mowing).

    NOTE: When younger children visit, we practice safe storage or 'way out of reach/visible' ways to ensure safety.

    I always have my gun sitting comfortably in my Kangroo carry holster. I live in a apartment complex and never answer the door without my gun. Home invations happen "at home."

    No, I don't carry at home but generally have a gun within quick reach.

    Yes, I do carry at home, or have it very near me.

    It's only "your" yard so long as someone chooses to not hop the fence or open the gate, to come after you/yours. And that can happen in an instant, at which point the weaponry back in the safe shows its true value ... but at which point, it's too late. Hard to get around that one.

    Glad you're reevaluating.

    Yup.

    For me, the answer has always been incredibly sobering and seemingly crystal clear: when someone else (the violent felon) decides. Can't be usin' what you don't have with you. Absolutely true.

    Of course. I don't happen to have the ability of knowing when an attack will happen.
