    I always have a firearm within arm's reach at all times when I am at home. Whether it is on my belt or close by, it's there.

    I generally don't see the need to disarm at home, unless I'm changing or showering, so I keep it on my hip or under my arm at all other times. As I don't need to be cautious about CC during those times, a couple of friends have been introduced to the fact that I carry after visiting me unexpectedly. After realizing that they've known me all this time without being aware, they quickly come to terms with the fact that guns can be carried by good guys, they can be concealed and there's never a danger or threat to the general public ("I only thought criminals had guns"). It's a good opportunity to pass on a little education to those who are ignorant about such matters.

    I have the most trouble remembering to cover when going outside my front door (to my car for example). There's rarely a chance I will see anyone due to my remote location but I still need to address the sensibility of the neighboring houses and avoid some idiot perhaps informing the police of "...a man with a gun..."
    I will never forget that I am an American, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

    Definitely not. Carrying has become so second nature for me that I don't even think about it. It's like wearing a watch (which I wear 24/7). Even when I worked in IT at a large mortgage company I was armed, despite the company policy against it. If some deranged ex-employee decided to make a statement, I'll be damned if I'm going to be unarmed. I'd rather be able to defend myself than become a statistic.

    The only time a gun isn't on my hip is if I'm showering, sleeping, or in sweat pants (or have to go to the courthouse). When I shower, it's on the shelf 3 inches from the shower. When sleeping, it's on the night stand. When in sweats, it's on the end table next to me as I sit and watch TV, or in the waistband if I go out to the garage.

    Other than those three scenario's, I just don't see a reason NOT to have the gun on me.

    YMMV, of course.

    During the day I carry Kimber Stainless 2 and when I get home at night I use Kimber custom 2 (full size) 1911 when I'm inside my house. It has night sights and the smaller one does not have night sights or laser.....yet. But when I go out to drive at night I carry the smaller one again. Both are cocked and ready to rock and both have back up mags as well. As being a vet and brought up in a military home we are all firm believers of having back ups!

    I always have at least one gun on me from the time I get out of bed until the time I go back to bed. In the shower there is one within arms reach. Always.

    I don't carry at home. Most of the times, I wear some gym shorts that feel labored if I put my phone in my pocket let alone a gun.

    I normally unchamber (reholster) and have a cocktail before dinner. I leave it unchambered (small kids at home) until I leave the next morning. I live on 22 acres and can see and hear any vehicle approaching from the main road. I feel this would give me sufficient time to rack one if I felt a threat was approaching.
