    The only time I carry at home is when I first get there and to lazy to undress and also when I'm working in the yard. The rest of the time I have a weapon on my desk, one in my night stand and one in the table next to my lounger. No kids to worry about. Also have plenty of time to get to the gun - I have an 8 legged alarm system (German Shepard and Siberian Husky).
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    P3AT, IWB with the belt clip. I could damn near hide the P3AT in a jock strap if the pouch wasn't already full!

    Smart Carry or fanny pack as suggested would be best option for circumstances you described.

    I find that if you strap your internal on the inside of your underwear while wearing sweatpants, it doesn't pull down. It actually stays right in place.

    Smartcarry is what I use in my lounging cloths that don't have a belt. Works very well.

    I must be from another planet... all these "it stays in place in sweats"...

    Just confirmed, there is absolutely no chance my sweats will stay up with my loaded XD40 on...

    Might just have to get a Smartcarry.

    If getting a smaller and lighter gun is not an option for you, than the Smartcarry may be the smart decision.

    My routine coming home from work is similar to yours. I put on some sweat pants or shorts with NO belt. Then use my PPK or 442 snubby with an Alessi Talon holster (with the Talon clips). This setup is PERFECT. The clip stays in place while withdrawing. Plus the lighter firearm does not drag down my sweat pants or shorts.

    Just an FYI, in case you decide to go smaller/lighter for home carry.

    Ha yeah, my waist is built like a funnel, everything goes down without either suspenders or being cinched up like a horse and saddle.

    To the OP, try belly band, either around belly or chest (armpit), or one of the t shirt holsters.

    Maybe it's just me, but I'm perfectly comfortable sitting around in jeans all night... so I just keep my holster on.

    When I get up in the morning and I don't get dressed right away I use a cheapo nylon shoulder holster I got on eBay for like $15 so I can lounge in shorts or whatever...

    when i'm home relaxing, i find the smartcarry pretty comfortable wearing sweats.
    had mine for a couple yrs. now and no complaints. very seldom do i wear it out
    and about though. just a little to slow on the draw should the need arise.
