    Sort of. I live at the same place I work, so around here (pretty safe and very rural) I start with my LCP in my pocket in the morning and carry it til sometime in the evening. Otherwise I have a gun in our tv room; and two at my nightstand.

    I've always felt uneasy in trusting the elastic on my drawers to hold up a 1911.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I don't carry at home, but as mentioned here, they are close by for easy access. I've come to realize though allot of folks do not have training that I have and no matter what, my training is no match for a bullet

    If I awake, I'm carrying at home. Otherwise it is on my night stand, next to my flashlight & cell phone.

    Yes. As I type this I am sitting in a pair of flannel PJ pants with my Glock 26 hidden away in a Smart Carry. Even at home I believe in total concealment.

    I carry all the time, even at home
    only exception is when showering or sleeping in bed (sleeping in recliner I still packing lol)
    while showering or sleeping in bed a handgun is within arms reach

    I have my duty G17 in my Galco leather paddle holster right now while I'm sitting in the recliner typing this

    prepared.......always!

    I carry at home. Of course, I'm not the "get home and take keys out of the pocket" kind of guy. Everything on me pretty much stays on me until I go to bed.

    I also like to take it out if I'm watching TV or something, unload, double check the chamber, and dryfire at the lightswitch or something during commercials. Dryfire practice = better results at the range. Disclaimer: Don't do this. Every time you dry fire, move all sources of ammunition to a separate room, and only dryfire at a proper backstop. :)

    Glock 19, on or off, next to me. Check if it is loaded, visually, prior to holstering.

    I enjoy the same activity. As to the original question-"sometimes" I carry at home, like taking the dog out, going out to start the car or hanging out in the garage etc.... I find myself doing it more often though.

    I read that many home invasions happen to homes that have a security service sign in the yard because the BGs figure the alarm will be off when people are home. Even without a yard sign, I figure BGs prefer to work with darkness as an advantage, so yeah, I carry at home, all the time. But I do use an IWB holster under an untucked shirt to reduce my spouse's discomfort quotient and chance of incidental neighbor/visitor concerns.

    Of course. Shouldn't everyone?
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    If it is then I guess I'm paraniod because I carry at home all the time. Even as I sit here, my G23 sits on my right hip, just like it always does.

    Being prepared means being ready all the time. I may let my guard down a little at home, but even then, my gun is right there on my hip ready if someone starts to kick in a door or something.

    I do. I believe in being prepared.

    It is another layer in your home defense. You lock your doors, you turn on your alarm / have a dog, perimeter lights, etc.

    I also think it is a deterrent. If criminals have to worry about if random homeowners are armed, they'll think twice about breaking in while people are home. Contrast that vs criminals in the UK who break into homes with no fear of the homeowner. See: FutureWire - futurism and emerging technology: Home Invasions: US vs. UK
