    Sig 238 always in my pocket or Smartcarry 24/7. M+P 40 comes out when I get home from work. Soon to be replaced with a S&W 1911 :)

    Disarm? What?
    My gun is always within arms reach and I leave it strapped on my person until I go to bed or take a shower (believe you me, if I could somehow carry in the shower I would). I'm not allowed to carry on my person at work, so it stays secured in my vehicle. As was mentioned, I'm one of those die-hard people that showers(etc.) with my gun on the sink, and I sleep with it an arm-drop away, as well as my shotgun one step away. Plus, in my apartment, the exterior door stays locked, and when I go to sleep, my bedroom door is locked to give me valuable seconds in the event the SHTF. It also annoys the mailman, which I am fine with.

    I live in a dangerous neighborhood with violent attacks and armed robberies at LEAST once a month. I can't afford to move, and I am not allowed to put bars on my windows, but fortunately for me, I'm on the second story. I also have a trip-alarm for the exterior door that I set up every night. It also helps that my neighbors find me intimidating and think I'm dangerous, which I am - assuming you break in or attack me.

    BTW, I advise caution when reading any post or reply that uses references to a specific instance/situation/individual opinion to prove their point because that can work against you as well as for you. For example, the anti gun lobby uses much of the same information to back their agenda as 2A supporters. The only difference is how it's presented. We all can find something, somewhere to back up a certain point of view if we look hard enough. As a member of the debate team in school, I often had to take the side of an argument opposite that of my personal views and then find support for that argument. The real trick is to find as much info as possible from as many sources as possible, get all points of view (both pro AND con) then make an educated decision based on all the facts.
    The world doesn't work in absolutes....but I bet you'd be in a better position to defend yourself with your gun with you versus being locked away.

    When I get home, the shotgun becomes primary. I don't "dis-arm", but re-arm.

    Only time I do not have my .45 handy is when I am in the shower, unless I brought out the CZ that particular day. I don't "disarm" at home, but move into a more defensible, weapons-rich environment...

    That is a very true statement and I'm a firm believer that it's better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    As for my previous post, the point was that when someone tells you they can "prove" anything by giving an example, it must be taken with a grain of salt. In most cases, for every example/incident (be it one or one hundred) you use to prove a point, someone else can find the same number of examples to prove the opposite point of view. Most people only read what they want to read, which are usually the opinions that agree with their own. That's why I said we should get our information from as many sources as possible when trying to decide a course of action, get all points of view (both pro AND con) then make our decisions based on all the facts as we find them whether we agree with them all or not.
