    I had the same problem until I got the little keltec. With the belt clip or a cheapo uncle mikes holster, they stay up fine.

    My wife used not to like it. She thought I was "Ramboing". Then I asked her what good was the pistol in the back of the house if someone kicked in the front door.

    She doesn't worry about it anymore.

    Living out in the sticks; if it make you feel safer to strap some leather on first thing in the morning, then I highly recommend it.


    Back when some friends and I use to lease thousands of acres for hunting and fishing, I did.

    Sometime, my wife and I would go camping, during the off season, and being the only humans within 10 square miles, I would strapped my 44 magnum Ruger six shooter on my hit the first thing in the morning, and took it off when I went to bed.

    At home, I donít see a reason to. But, my Glock is always nearby.

    Gun holsters concealed by SmartCarry concealed holsters

    My smartcarry is the first thing I put on in the morning, and the last thing I take off at night. It also goes on the floor next to the shower when I'm in the shower. It has all the support you'll ever need, even when wearing sweats or shorts only. Your wife will never know it's there unless her hands are in that area.

    As I suggested earlier in the thread, a belly band works well for this. Also keeps the gun out of the grandkids sight.

    Absolutely. I forget where I read it (might even have been around here):

    Why do I carry at home? Seems like that's where most home invasions occur.

    Talking with my sister recently, and she's considering doing the same. She and her husband are both retired USMC, so they're pretty well prepared, but she told me of an incident where a guy on a quad came up their looong rural driveway just to look around (very rural Northern Virginia) while she was in the yard with the two small kids, and she started wondering what she would do if it had been trouble and she had to get to the house quickly with the kids.

    Absolutely, I carry at home.

    Me, too

    Before the baby, I usually kept whatever I was wearing on or around until I went to bed. Now I drop my sidearm into a fast-access safe and keep my everyday BUG, a Kel Tec P32, in my pocket around the house. Bigger stuff is in the bedroom or office safe.

    I wear it at home for two reasons:

    1) Security of having a weapon close at hand, if I need it.

    2) Don't have to fool with putting it on and taking it off for quick trips outside the home. I get dressed, I put it on. Half the time, the holster is still attached to the belt anyways, from the day before.

    If I had a "rig" i wouldn't wear it anywhere...a few tons might weigh a bit. Seriously though... I wear my sidearm at home as well. If I'm awake, it's on my hip whether I'm home or away.

    You're completely sane and rational. It's a simple fact that you're less able to defend yourself when disarmed. The more control you can have over your means of protection is a good thing, whether that be a hardened perimeter, a secure ensconced position from which to defend your family, keeping your sidearm with you, having quick access to your firearms during the night, etc.
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

    A slight digression, but you'll get the idea:

    As a pilot, we are taught three points:

    1) There is nothing more useless than the runway behind you.
    2) There is nothing more useless than the altitude above you.
    3) There is nothing more useless than the gas you left in the big tank at the airport.

    I will add a fourth:

    4) There is nothing more useless than the gun you can't reach in an emergency.

    Yes, I wear it all the time. When my five year old grandson comes by he always wants to know if Papa has his gun on so I pull up my shirt and say "sure". Then he usually wants to start a discussion on calibers. Honest, this kid knows a lot about weapons. His dad is an avid hunter and he has got quite a bit of info from me. I think he would make a great marine but he is committed to becomming a cowboy.
