Unless a gun is carried, then while going from room to room a gun cannot always be in reach unless a new gun is stored every 3ft along every wall in every room, including everywhere outdoors a person would go. Either one carries it in a holster (hip, pocket, shoulder) or one carries it in the hand. Them's the only two choices, short of having ~50 guns pre-planted throughout a home.why carry a weapon around the house, when there is always one within arm’s reach.
It depends on what I'm doing after work. If i'm doing something like cleanning the dog lots or mowing the yard I'll switch to an OWB holster. If I'm just sitting around doing pretty much nothing I'll continue to carry my IWB holster or lay it on the desk/table next to me.

"They can have my guns, one round at a time. . ."
Depends, but usually I lock it up once I get home.
I have several other safety measures once I'm home in which I am comfortable with the time it takes to retrieve a weapon from whatever room I am in.
We have no kids so thats not an issue.
Generally there is at least one 12 gauge with 00 buck within reach of the bed during the night as well.
When I was a kid, we had a two-bedroom house for a family of seven. My room was in the basement. No windows. Very little light. No view. I love my property and the grounds. I always leave the windows open. It's an issue from where/how I grew up.
I'll take the risk. I am not going to let "preparedness" leave me living like a demented hermit.
I also don't usually carry at home. Personally, I like being prepared, but I also like to relax. I am busy enough with my three jobs and outside activities. Could a home invader catch me off-guard? Sure.
I could also walk outside with my pistola on my hip and dozens of rounds of SD ammo only to have an attacker take me off-guard from behind a tree and slay me on the spot.
You make your choices, and accept the consequences.
Compared to most of you, I'm new to the CC world. I've had my permit for nearly 2 years, bought an EDC about a year ago, and finally got a nice IWB holster about 6 months ago. I've carried about every day since, but I'm still not 24/7. When I get home and change out of my work clothes, I'll usually disarm and lock it up at the same time. If I go out later that night, I'll typically re-arm, but not always.
I'm getting there...
I am carrying 24/7/365 unless I'm showering or I'm somewhere where it's illegal to carry.
The MAIN reason I carry is for home defense.

Shove the 638 in my jammies and it lays on the table when I sleep and the Mossy is always close while sleeping.
When I get home from work, thats when I arm myself. Can't carry at work and since I drive a Motorcyle, I can't secure the gun

When at home and not planning on going anywhere,I'll change holsters IWB
to OWB, plus there is a Ruger Security Six in my longe chair, But I still have my
EDC on till bed time.

I carry my EDC (G26) at home as long as I am in my street clothes. When I slip into my sweats, the LCP goes in the pocket and the G26 is within reach. My 642 is nearby as well..
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
