    At Home Carry?

    I read a while back about people that carry while at home. Since it is your duty to defend your home, how many of you carry while at home? As I write this I have my HK USP45 in my Blade-Tech IWB. Comfy for around the house :)

    Living in dirty jersey right now, home is the only place I can carry so I do. I think it's good just to carry, plus it keeps me comfortable with it so when I go back to PA (couple times a month) it's not awkward.

    Always carry at home. Right now gun of choice is H&K USP 9mm. Walk with it on, mow the grass with it on, sit around with it on.

    Yep; that's where my most precious items (e.g., family) are! S&W M642 in my pocket 24/7.

    I carry whenever I'm at home - either my 1911 or CZ P-01, and 1 spare mag.

    When I get home from work (and I dont plan on doing anything afterwards), I carry my 5" Kimber or G17 in a Fobus Paddle. As much as I like my kimber, its normally the glock. Mainly becasue I dont worry about it rusting when I leave it on the back of the throne while I'm in the shower, and I'm quicker with it out of its Fobus holster than I am my Kimber and its fobus holster.

    Otherwise (take now for example), I have my 5" kimber in my MS SS-II, since that's my daily carry gun. When I do have things to do after work, it goes on with the clean clothes, shorty after my shower.

    Most know - my carry is surgically attached - all waking hours!

    Around house and down yard in office I am mostly open carry when hotter weather but I have said often - my basic premise is that the piece must be there at all times, like a watch. It would little use if, the unexpected occurred and I'd decided to leave it off, "just for a while".

    It is very much an ''all-or-nothing'' commitment, simple as that. No paranoia and every chance (I hope) it will never be drawn in anger but - for that outside chance it will be where I expect it, any and every time.

    Always in my Beltster or on the table next to me. Like Chris said, it's like my watch. GF used to think I was crazy or paranoid, now it's just another thing around whenever I am.

    My decor is late Vietnam bunker - Christmas lights and firearms. ;)

    If it's on display, it's got a loaded mag with it.

    Home Carry

    It depends on what I'm wearing, which depends on the temperature my wife selects. If it's cool, I'm carrying a Taurus 605 in .357. Moderate temperatures call for the P3AT and higher temps mean one of the NAAs is with me. My responsibility is to protect my family and that includes at home.
