    Carry

    Everywhere I go I am heavy. In the house, during the day, I wear my edc on my hip, at bed time it is on my table next to my bed. I have two little ones running around so I have to keep the weapons unaccessible to them but accessible enough for me. I usually lock the firearms up in my work room closet next to my bedroom, because of this I have to have at least one weapon around so that I am able to get to the others safely.
    One more step and it's on!

    For me it is on my side, or in the safe. Leaving it about the house is no option. My kids, plus their friends aged 7-11 are constantly coming and going. There can be no mistake at all here. Safe, or on the belt.

    It was a big change once we had children that the weapon would be in a safe next to the bed, instead of in the drawer next to the bed. I will be slower responding in case of a home invasion, and that is a possibility, but kids being in the house, my children and others children, is a certainty.

    I stay dressed until I am ready to go to bed and have a revolver on me until then . When I get in bed, EDC goes into holster on bed rail, alongside Mossberg 500A.

    for edc at home i really prefer a shoulder holster. it works no matter how flimsy the sweatpants, gymshorts, or boxers are and won't pinch or twist when I sit or lean
    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

    If I'm dressed to leave the house, I carry IWB, or in one of my pocket holsters usually. If home for the day my G26 is always in reach ready to go. I don't necessarily carry it in a holster when I'm casual at home. If someone at the front door G26 is in hand. 12 ga. is nearby and ready. .357 stashed in kitchen too.

    Hearing the shotgun being racked didn't work to well for this guy.

    I think the guy's problem was he went out "looking" for the intruder. Which gives you a tactical disadvantage. I think he'd have been better off staying in his bedroom behind some cover with the shotgun aimed at the door.

    Also, the guy really seems a bit too gung-ho for my taste. I'm not sure it is such a good idea for him to be claiming he shot at the intruder while the intruder was fleeing.

    I carry all day, every day. Whether at home or not.
