It's either on my belt or within reach 24/7.

I always have a gun in hands reach at home. Might not be my EDC but there's one available.
There are times when I leave it on from being out and about. Usually though it's not on me all the time at home. I have 2 young girls so I can still keep it on top of the armoire and keep it away from them. My bedroom armoire is not far from anywhere in my house. Yeah it's kinda small. There's a G19 in a Serpa on my side of the armoire, a keltec P3at on my wife's side, and an 870 with #6 in the closet, cruiser ready.
Always on except in bed and the shower unless I change in to bed clothes early or am sick, then it's by my side... table/desk etc.
ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

When I'm home, I tend to put the gun in my Smart Carry and wear it outside of my clothes. It's super comfy and I like having it on me rather than near me.
But sometimes I keep the gun within reach instead of on my body.
The only time a gun isnt within 3 feet of me is when at work (airport), otherwise always armed.

I may take one or two guns off when I get home, but I also keep at least one gun on my person until I retire for the evening.
Generally, it's on me until I turn in. Occasionally, I'll remove it, but it's within arm's reach (ie, if working on the computer).Do you disarm when you get home?
I carry every dry waking hour.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
I'll echo what a lot of others have already stated. From the minute I put my pants on in the morning until I go to bed each night, I'm carrying one of two handguns.
When I go to bed each night I have my G26 on the nightstand. That's my primary SD handgun. My backup SD handgun at home is a Kel-Tec P-11.
I recently had to appear in court for a preliminary hearing. I had to file charges against someone who assaulted me at work. I felt SO vulnerable the entire time I walked from the parking garage to the courthouse. I haven't felt so vulnerable in a long while. I had to leave my trusty G26 in my COM safe in my Ford F-250 pick-up. It's amazing how vulnerable you feel without my SD handgun on you!
If I'm awake I'm carrying!
"Gun control is being able to hit your target."
My wife actually insists that I remain armed when I get home. She has been unnerved by a couple of incidents in our neighborhood... And, we live in a fairly nice neighborhood. My wife also carries, but she puts her handgun away at home, because it is uncomfortable for her to wear.

I usually remove my primary and just leave the LCP in my pocket until bed time. Just in-case a creeper comes callin.
