    Usually take it off as soon as I get home. Feel I live in a fairly safe place and the stats prove it.

    As soon as I arrive home, my HG is usually on the end table beisde my recliner, so it is always close at home, if i go out it slips back onto my hip. And I must nominate my SO (code for wife not safety officer) for the spouse of the year. She has her P99 besider her in her purse, while home and away from home and just put a new set of Pacymiers on her J-frame and "almost" outshot Reborn. Did I mention she "encouraged" me to buy a new DPMS M-4 a month ago(I was playing hard to get). Out of the box it is fantastic, but then again so is she. I can see the potential for a good topic here too.

    I've said before and I'll say again; I feel that I am more likely to need a firearm on my farm, specifically in my castle, than I am away from it.

    Since I lounge in my jeans and boots, nothing really changes for me until bed-time.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    My feeling is if I am going to carry I should carry all the time. You never know when death will come to your door.

    Key Point!

    When younguns are around, the guns are concealed or in a safe.

    When it's just my wife and me at home, there is no reason to conceal at home, and our weapons are worn or within easy reach

    I wear my rig 100% while awake...keep it on the nightstand within arm's reach while sleeping. You never know when the ball will open and you'll be asked to dance.

    I put mine on when I get dressed in the morning, take it off when going to bed. I wear it around the house, the barn, on the tractor, in the skid steer, and every place else I go all day where it is legal to do so - which is near enough to everyplace here in PA.

    Home is the most likely place to need a weapon for most people. Reading the self defense stories on this forum, a huge percentage of them are related to protecting one's self from home invaders.

    That is especially true for single females under 40 living alone and all pregnant women. Single women with a CCW should always carry at home. No question about it.

    In addition, when getting started with CCW, breaking in a new holster, trying out a new carry piece, or trying a different carry variation, around home is the perfect place to do that. When in the bathroom, pretend you are in a stall at Home Depot, practice handling the gun like you would have to in a stall.

    So yes, carrying at home is a very good plan, and no, it isn't being paranoid, it is being prepared to defend your self and those close to you which is why you got the CCW in the first place.

    I confess I am stunned at how many people remain armed at home. Not to make a judgement here, but the threat of a "home invasion" is miniscule. IMHO you're more likely to need a fire extinguisher than a gun. How many carry one of those around the house?

    I carry until I go to bed. If it has a belt it has a gun on... in PJs I use Smartcarry around the house.

    Yup... until I get undressed for the night and even then, wherever I am, that's where my weapon is too!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
