Now, there are meth labs and gang activity there. Hard to believe, but a strong statement for why we feel more comfortable carrying a method of personal defense... on us... all day... everyday... regardless of where we find ourselves.

I carry at home, simply because my gun goes on with my pants in the morning, comes off with them when I get into bed. My carry rig is so comfortable, as to create a sense of "carry-complacency"... I only notice it, if it's NOT on.

Unless I am asleep in bed (it is then in the holster mounted to the bed frame), working out (and then it is with in reach) or in the shower, I have the G23 on my right hip, as it is right now.
I carry around the house, all the time. You can't pick the time and place for the solid waste to strike the bladed, rotating air moving device.
The only time I don't carry at home is when showering, bathing or sleeping, but the gun is still within arms reach.
Yep, I agree completely.Hard to believe, but a strong statement for why we feel more comfortable carrying a method of personal defense... on us... all day... everyday... regardless of where we find ourselves.
It sure seems that way. However, from what I've read, Switzerland is still an extremely safe place to live, with home invasions virtually unheard-of. Of course, when nearly every house has a militiaman with a full-auto rifle inside, barging into someone's house might seem like a bad idea...The world, on a daily basis, gets no friendlier.
I think there's still safe places to live, even in the USA, but the cities are getting worse and worse at an alarming rate. That's why I'm planning on moving to someplace rural when my career allows.
Some of them also set up temporary tents so they can claim a "residence" which is all that is required to attend public school. Why the local/state government doesn't require proof of legality is beyond me.
It makes me furious that tax payers are footing the bill for all this. Don't even get me started about the free welfare and healthcare we give them.
They're sucking us dry and Bush just wants to build a damn fence and grant amnesty to all 7-20 million of them!

Sorry for the off-topic rant; you hit a raw nerve...

Always within arms reach if it's not on me.

Home invasion is still the #1 use of a gun for personal defense.
Carry at home? you bet. 24-7 is 24-7. Read my signature.
Carry 24-7 or guess right.

Rarely. Although possible, of course, I believe that a forced home invasion is highly unlikely where I live.

I do just because it's easier that way. Wake up in the morning and put the gun on...go to bed and take it off. No forgetting the gun if I just run out of the house for a second. Yet another reason a good comfortable holster/belt/gun combo is important.
That's about it.I never know when someone is going to break my door down.
