    If I were in your shoes in my neighborhood... I would conceal it to where it is easily accessible. I wouldn't want to advertise that I have a gun to where my house could possibly be broken into in hopes of getting it or something else (not in the safe). I also live with in 1000 feet of 3 schools. It wouldn't take much for someone to raise concern over it, even though i'm within my legal right to do such.

    Pick you battles and don't do something that could attract the wrong kind of attention toward yourself

    "I would conceal it to where it is easily accessible."

    In lieu of inaccessible?

    I personally have never lived in fear of another persons fear. Just seems kinda stupid. If its legal and properly holstered, why should they be afraid of it?

    Whenever I have a garage sale, I not only open carry 2 Glock 21's in a double crossdraw rig, but I also keep a Remington 1100 12 gauge tactical at port arms while my wife, who is carrying her Glock 30 in a drop leg tactical holster (so I can share mags with her in the inevitable firefight), minds the cash box. My son stations himself in the attic behind no-see-um mesh with his AR loaded up with Hornady TAP rounds, in case my wife and I are overcome by a flash mob of gang-bangers who are looking to beat and rob us of our used cookware and extensive collection of classic 8 tracks, valued at over $0.10 apiece!

    It's a dangerous world out there.

    Yeah, did you read his post? " find me any law that differentiates between home and property". It's a ready force law and relevant!

    Fair enough - it is in fact "a law" that differentiates between the two. But it is a bit irrelevant since the discussion is about carrying...and the castle doctrine is concerning deadly force.

    You know, I hadn't considered that. I will have to keep this in mind for our next garage sale.

    I understand what MOST everyone is trying to say. I appreciate the advice from everyone. I never considered this thread would start a few ******* matches.
