Home Invasion Deterrence?
I don't actually carry on my hip in my house as a conscious act. However, if I come in from a dinner out with my wife I have been known to sit here at 'puter or fall asleep in Lazy-Boy in front of tube with Sig P245 in an IWB from Blade-Tech such is the COMFORT of that rig! I don't worry about home invasions here, of course the 110 pound Newfoundland pup is a pretty good deterrent and most of my neighbors know I'm fmr US Army infantry officer and fmr LEO. Also my next door neighbor was also a US Army captain (he was a rotor-head in Cobras) and he's one of the NRA reps for this area. We already agreed on how to handle an emergency like a riot or other calamity.
You live in a combat zone?
Geeeeze where do you live, Baghdad? Seriously are you fearing that you've been targeted by the Crips or the Bloods? Maybe a biker gang?

Once folded and in your firm grasp, it will be nearly impossible to dislodge. It will be as rigid as an ASP baton and utterly disposable, even bloodsoaked, which it is likely to be.
