    When I'm in the house, not very often but I have one close at hand. (no kids otherwise I'd do something different.)

    The second before I exist I strap at least one pistol on.

    Yup. I carry my M&P .40 in a Fobus paddle holster. It's the best way to be prepared. From cooking to cleaning, to surfing the net, it's on my hip.

    I do carry in the house.

    If I'm on the first floor and the weather is nice, I like to leave the back door open to let the air in, hear the birds, and enjoy the flowers on my deck. The back of our townhouse faces the woods so it's relatively private, but you never know. I like something more between me and the bad guy than a flimsy screen door.

    All the time. I get my gun as soon as I walk in the door and lock it up right before I leave.(No CCW yet) Sometimes I will even wear my smart carry and tuck it away so that the wife doesn't have to see it all the time.

    I have,at the least, my Kel-tec P32 in my pocket always. I do have other guns easily at hand but the pocket carry works for me.

    I am retired and I might be watching TV, playing with the GrandKids in the yard or rolling under a car to change oil or do some other maintenance. I would have to remove an IWB/OWB for some things but the pocket gun is always there.
    Actually, one of my biggest fears is large dogs as my transitional neighbor hood seems to have a fondness for Pit bulls and Rottweilers and I usually have a 2 1/2 or 4 year old girl following me around and I don't want a loose dog to be a problem for us.

    I don't have my permit yet, but FL allows us to carry in our glove box until we have one of those pretty little plastic cards. I always have my P40 in the glove box or on my person when I'm on my property, as well as having several other guns hidden around the house to make for a quick retreat. Shotgun in rear bedroom, P40 in master bedroom, G22 on the fridge, and Ruger SP101 near the front entryway / main hall. You really don't have to go much more than 15 feet in any direction to get a gun, and thats if it isn't on you. All of my neighbors are cool with carrying on thier land, and I'm cool with my neighbors carrying on mine. We look out for each other here!

    Open carry is illegal where i live. But i have a Fobus tactical holster for my XD9 just to carry in the houses because is allows more freedom of movement and i dont need a belt to use it.

    Always have at least one within arms reach, loaded and ready to go if the need be. Hopefully won't ever be a need!!!

    I usually have a Kel Tec in my pocket around the house.

    Cool I thought I was the only one.

When I trim my trees I carry. I open carry at all times on my property. My neighbors can see I carry but probably have never even noticed. It did get the Deputy's attention though when he had to serve some papers to me! When I shower I have a Sig 226 Navy Special Warfare Edition with Seal 9mm ammo. The rounds are water resistant. It hangs on my soap rack in the shower. If it gets wet I just wipe it off. My only complaint is that the Sig 226 NSW edition is not available in .40 with the attendant sealed ammo.
