I carry in the house now thanks to this forum. I have learned a great deal of information here as a result of being a member.
Since i cant carry outside of the home, yet, i figure it is a good way to get used to carrying to do it in my home...my iwb and walther ppq fit so well on my hip that i am starting to forget i am wearing it...
and like many of you have pointed out, 100% of home invasions happen at home...so i say why not!
i just wish my state allowed its law abididng citizens to carry...last time i checked bad guys dont follow concealed carry laws!!
Smart ! You said the police are proactive and now you are as well! 24/7
We have a few of these scattered about. You never know where you'll be during a home invasion.
Also due to reading this forum as well as having a Sherriff warn my wife that there have been burglaries in our neighborhood has me now wearing by XD around the house as well. I also have a loaded German Shepard formy first line of defense.
Most of the time the poor don't rob from the poor, they come to the nicer neighborhoods or those who have something someone else wants. You don't pick when you get to be a victim. Always best to be prepared for any situation. Heck we've even had cops houses robbed here in Columbus no one is safe.
I guess a thief is a thief no matter what you do or where you live, rich or poor. Some are just better then others or just want a big score regardless of who or where it is.
