    Yup! I carry inside my home. I've got my daily carry gun in my cargo pants pocket right now. It's always there!
    Most of the time I'm in my shop, which is behind the house, during the day and I am always armed way out here in the Country.
    My Neighbor once saw my sidearm and asked me why I was armed.
    I said, It's for Coyotes!"
    I would rather carry everyday and NEVER NEED IT, than need it once and not have it.

    Our Sherrif is a qiuck hour away, so it's up to me to save my self and family.
    As for this guy, I don't believe I'd be walking through the house investigating a suspicious noise at midnight armed with only a 32.
    I'd have my shotty or my 45! Probasbly both.

    What you want to bet he upgrades his defense tactics?
    What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?

    Just came in from some Christmas shopping...my Glock-36 is on my side as I type.
    Additionally, we have the neighbor boy (3 years old) during the day for the next 2 weeks. My usually stash around the house is in the safe, but my Glock-36 stays with me.
    Stay armed, but stay safe!

    Home invasions are just about a cottage industry in the Phoenix area these days, as Phx is a major distribution center for the drug and human smuggling trade. The smugglers are bad enough, but their presence has given rise to rip-off gangs who try to make easy money off the smugglers' "hard work". The suburbs are not immune, with all the vacant, foreclosed homes out here.

    There is always a gun either on my person or less than 1 step away.

    One day while putting on my pistol to go out, my six year old asked me;
    "dad why are you taking that"
    And I said "well, if a bad person tried to harm us, wouldn't it be better to have it on me"?
    Six year old,"yes"


    Sometime later, I was putting it on to go out and do stuff outside around the house, and here comes that familiar question.
    "Dad, why do we need that for, we're just gonna be outside"
    I say" well what if someone came up the driveway and was gonna try and take you or do something bad to any of us here at home, wouldn't it be better to have it on me, than running back into the house to grab it"?

    Six year old,"yes dad"

    Nuff said.
