I am always armed, from the time I wake up until I go to bed. Of course not when I am at work though..

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 :)

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.

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.

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.
