    This all depends on what holster I'm wearing, and for how long. If I need a break, and plan on being home a while, my EDC may come out for some fresh air. But most of the time it's within reach even then.

    Crime reports show that 100% of home invasions happen at home. I carry from the time I get dressed in the morning, until I undress and go to bed. Having my gun on my hip makes it accessible no matter where I am in the house.

    I carry 17/7, assuming I sleep 6 1/2 hours and take a 1/2 hour shower every day.

    Well, since getting a Ruger LCP, it's always in my pocket. At home or away.

    As for my primary, usually Glock-23 or XD9sc, I tend to keep it on my person even around the house as my holsters are just so comfortable.

    When I do take the primary off, it remains within arms reach in the room I'm occupying. Plus there's still the LCP in the pocket.

    So bottom line... Always two guns immediately available, even at home.

    Read the thread: Still think you live rural enough that it won't happen to you?

    It sits next to me, wherever I am in the house. Arms reach.

    Nope, don't disarm.

    I usually put on my holster and gun when I get dressed in the morning and take it off when I get ready for bed.

    Tonight was different because I had to coach soccer practice. I disarmed before going to practice and have not put it back on tonight. Most soccer practice evenings I will put it back on when I get home.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Exactly! I might not always have it on my hip, but it's always within arms reach.

    It has become a way of life.

    I believe in Murphy's Law: the one day I leave my guns at home, or locked up while I'm at home, will be the day I need them.

    Actually, the incidence of crime toward random strangers has been increasing around here the last several years, so I know the odds of it happening to me are also increasing. Road rage seems to be on the increase. People are frustrated, moreso than before IMO. For some, it only takes an innocent act to set them off.

    Plus, I am a loner. If anything happens, it will be me against them since no one else in my family carries. Best case, me against one. Worst case, me against several.

    You always hear "dress for success", right?
