    Do you carry IN your home?

    I do carry in my home.I pray for the best & prepare for the worst!
    Ruger P95 with Federal 115 grn JHP is my choice.
    Here where I live,it has been the M.O. of unwanted visitors to come in the mornings when they think everyones gone to work.
    Here we hear about home invasions almost daily.
    Its best to have a 'plan' because you can BET the bad guys have one.
    Alot of people tell me they DONT carry IN home but they feel safe having a gun somewhere in there. I dont feel comfortable trying to foot race with a bad guy to where I 'would' have a weapon stashed in the house.

    Do YOU carry at home & what is your weapon of choice?Thanks for the replys & let me hear ya!

    I carry at home, heck my neighbors and I regularly chat across the fence while Im doing yard work with my Sig open on my hip. I as much as I can carry 24/7.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.

    Yes! A G26 with another G26 BU and a Mossy 500 and a couple of Claymores in reserve.

    Why do you ask?

    Those folks don't call before they come!

    I always carry at home. The only time my gun comes off, is when I take a shower (3 feet away on the counter), go to bed (less than 1 foot away on headboard), and while I am at work (work in a detention center and can not carry). Other than those 3 times, my HK P2000 .40 is strapped to my hip with 2 spare mags. My wife is also always within a few feet of her 357 mag. My 10 y.o. son knows where his shotgun is and how to load it if something goes down at home and me and my wife are preoccupied. He knows to get him and his little sister to it and wait for the all clear.

    Ditto. I always have a G21 and extra 13-round mag on me at home. Outside, mostly the same, sometimes a G27 and extra 15-round mag.

    I figure if I ever need it, I will need it instantly.

    Do you have any claymores you could spare? I have some stray dogs that keep getting in my garbage that I need to take care of.

    Why waste the claymore? When some sponges and such would be a lot more effective and cheaper.

    Always carry at home...always sleep with one eye open.

    Anyone who has read this story will agree that every family member should be trained in self defense, defensive carry and should be armed at all times, even during a peaceful evening at home.

    Yes. If it's not on me, it's near me.
