    Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    If my carry pistol of the day isn't touching my skin......then I'm not really at home. Home is where the love is, and there's no better love than a warm Glock slide against my side.

    Ha yeah, my waist is built like a funnel, everything goes down without either suspenders or being cinched up like a horse and saddle.
    If you ride a horse like I do, you ride with a "loose" cinch unless you're roping something.

    I back pocket a Kahr 40 cal or a S&W 38 99% of the time at home. I have a 5 year old and just can't take a chance of putting a gun in a place that he might get a hold of it. So it's on me or in the safe. Good luck.

    I'm in blue jeans from the moment I get up till I go to sleep; and sometimes I even sleep in jeans--tattered old ones I use as PJs. It is easy to carry all the time dressed this way. However, as we don't have kiddos in the house, strategically hiding guns round the house is a fair, but not foolproof substitute.

    Once at home I take my Glock out of my holster and place it up on top of my 6' library until it's bed time. With 4 kids ages 13, 8, 3, and 1 I keep my sidearm up away from little hands.

    [QUOTE=KevinDooley;1033957]Maybe it's just me, but I'm perfectly comfortable sitting around in jeans all night... so I just keep my holster on.

    +1. I also have a weapon in every room stashed up high for easy access. I also have an alarm system and a 95 lb. American Bulldog for peace of mind.

    Not positive if it was mentioned already, but my plan is to buy a nice shoulder holster that doesn't have belt attachments and carry with that around the house in more comfortable clothes. I feel like it'd be very comfortable and I'd have my medium/small auto w/two spare mags.

    Take care,

    If my wife and I are both home there's a steel security bar on the front door. Windows are partially blocked by large dressers, no worries there. We're on the third floor so the balcony door isn't too much of a weak point, though it gets barred at night.

    First off, we have no children of our own and if nieces and/or nephew are coming over to visit, everything except the carry gun I'm wearing is unloaded and secured out of sight. With that said, under normal conditions I keep a loaded 20ga. 870 in the bedroom (#3 buck), a loaded 1911 Mil-spec beside the bed (with spare mags), loaded 642 in the dresser drawer and a loaded 20ga. Mossberg in the living room closet. If my carry gun isn't on me, it's usually within easy reach.

    With young children to consider, your situation will require extra effort but you've gotten some good ideas to think about. It's going to be just like deciding how to carry during the day, what works for some might not work for you. Good luck figuring this out.

    My 642 is light enough that I carry it in whatever pant pocket I'm wearing....and yes I wear what's comfortable around the house.
