Dawn till dusk....and then some.
Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
no. sometimes I carry at home. But, i have a home studio and keep my xd9sc right next to me on the desk. Just in case.
Yes I allways carry at home.My 73 year old mother lives with me and God bless her,I cant seem to get it into her head that this isnt in the 40,s or 50;s when people could leave there doors unlocked on there houses and cars,windows up in the summer time,without out some nut job ,comming in and killing everyone in the house,just because they were home.
I carry every waking moment. When I sleep my weapon is at my right hand.
ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

My Glock is always close by or on my person when ever I'm outside the house . Take this from someone who has had two hold up attempts. In both cases the BG and BGs were not successful. Both times this took place at a place other then at home.
I carry for 2 reasons... 1. Home Invasions happen. There was a rash of them not too far from where I live recently. 2. The only way to have a defensive gun at the ready with a 19 month old daughter in the house is if I carry it on me. I can't rely on my clever hiding of weapons to keep them out of her reach... so, since what I wear is comfortable enough to wear all day, I just keep wearing it when I get home. Besides... there's something comforting about a Gov't 1911 on your hip - or is that just me?

I always carry at home.
(So does the wife.)
I thoroughly disapprove of duels.
If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand
and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.
Does this make me paranoid? Depends who you ask I suppose. I'm sure you could find a yes answer from someone. But you know what they say about opinions. Like that other thing, everybody's got one. And like that other thing, lots of 'em stink!

Always, unless I'm
1) in the shower, or
2) in bed
If 1 or 2, at least one gun is always within arm's reach.
Call me paranoid, I don't care. I call me prepared. Too many home invasions to ignore, and I love my family too much to trust their safety to random chance and "low odds" of a home invasion.
Try telling the family of those killed in the home invasions here last week about "low odds", and you'll likely get knocked upside the head and beat down... if you don't get shot on the spot by the dead folks' families.
Home alone most of the day, you bet I do. His gun or mine, if it's not on my hip, it's within arms reach.

Might just be me, but I personally think I'm more likely to need a firearm for self-defense at home than I am during my daily routine.
I carry everywhere (that I can legally)! That includes the Hacienda!!!

I'm no expert, but I believe most home invasions happen at home, so yes, I do carry at home.
And, your gun is always somewhere. You have the most control when it is on you.
