    Lightbulb I've been thinking

    Blackeagle, I've been thinking about the effect of pepper spray on a bear. When their sight is irritated, they try to escape the irritation. That would remove their interest in me. Am I correct? I've been pondering this the last few days. Have never hunted bear with a firearm. Bow hunting is more my style. Of course I don't think I would want to go into bear country without the largest handgun I can legally carry. In most states it is illegal to carry a firearm in the field during bow season. Your point on the 454 Casull etc is well taken. I'm certainly not the great white hunter, just a fat guy who loves the outdoors, wildlife, and hunting.

    usually if i leave the house (except to campus or work, cant carry there) I will carry and keep it on until i go to sleep. If im off that day and messing around the house, usually not. Im considering changing that since I live in Vegas and the meth heads and home invaders are out in record levels.

    Yes, I carry around the house. Just used to having it on my side and feel something is missing when not carrying. Plus, as mentioned above, it's there when I leave the house and don't need to think about putting it on.
    If I need to wear a shirt that needs to be tucked, I have a j frame in my front pocket.

    Anybody else?
    I make sure to keep it nearby, but not necessarily on me. That gets wearisome after a while.

    No! Fortunately I do not live in a neighborhood that home invasion is likely. I don't see a need to carry at home, although a handgun is next to my bed.

    Why carry in your house? That's supposed to be your safe haven away from crime. If your not safe in your home without walking around with a .357 mag then your safe no where. Secure your doors better if you dont feel safe and your windows and dont answer the door if its someone you dont know,unless its girl scout cookie kids or maybe the jehova wittness people,hmm well maybe not them.

    It's OK by me, but I think a lot of folks are paranoid. Carry at home, carry more than one gun, and such. If that isn't paranoia then what is?

    I will make an exception for those who live in rough neighborhoods where there are drive by shootings, and breaking into houses is done. The other exception would be if I lived outside of town on a ranch or isolated area.

    Fortunately, I have never lived in such places.

    Regards,

    Rural area here. There are houses around but you’re on your own. Call the sheriff and it takes on average 20 mins or longer (sometimes less). Meth is causing WAY too much bad in the entire county.

    Many hardworking taxpayers are being responsible for their safety.

    I would carry, in that instance, 24/7. We agree that each of us is responsible for his own safety. I would also attempt to get my wife to carry around the house or at least have one available.

    I would also have a shotgun and a rifle available to the extent possible.

    Best,
    Jerry

    She (trained and safe) ALWAYS has one close. The AR and HD shot gun are at hand too.

    Hope we never have to use them. Unfortunatly I have gone out with something to check on bad happenings. I try not to show what I got if I don't have to, however I do open carry a lot.

    It is my home and I am part of a community that wants to remain civil. Fire arms just seem to be required lately.

    I remember when I grew up in various towns/communities in the south that we did not even lock our doors, and now we have to be armed or have access to a firearm for protection.
    HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED, and not for the better.

    We have to be able to handle the changes, and protect our families. Drive by shootings are not uncommon in certain areas of cities, and difficult to defend against. By the time they shoot and scoot, it is doubtful that you can get info or even a shot at them. I have wondered how the DA might consider if one had a rifle pretty close, and ran outside and started firing into the retreating car. The innocent might get prosecuted for such, because they hit an innocent rider and not the shooter. What nonsense we must endure.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    I wouldn't do that and I'm sure a DA would prosecute you for assault or attempted murder since the car was clearly retreating and no longer considered a threat. Your state law maybe different than what mine is here in Nebraska but I know I would be in serious trouble if I tried anything like that.
