    Same here. Sig P226 open carry OWB at home, Sig P239 IWB and S&W 638 in a pocket when away from home. The 226 is on the nightstand within reach at night.

    a compact Glock .45 is on my side as I type this, prior to going out into the dark, cold and snow to feed and check livestock before going on patrol today.

    Had a case here just the other day where a man heard a noise walked into kitchen and saw a man on his patio who was attempting to break into the home that then pointed a gun at him he was able to get off three shots and stop the perp. Got to remember these people have made up there mind to commit a felony and one most consider violent. I carry a gun if I am dressed when not there's several within reach.

    Here's what I don't get.

    Seems like way too many home invasion stories start off with a statement of how the invaders surprised the occupants.

    Do lots of folks just leave their doors unlocked? Do they open their doors to whoever rings the doorbell?

    What's wrong with these people?

    1. Yes.
    2. Yes.
    3. Many people believe that if it has never happened to them before, it never will.

    Many homes are surprisingly easy to get into. The front door may have a sturdy deadbolt but look at the door leading from the laundry room to the garage or the patio doors. Elderly people with the television at high volume are especially susceptible. My mother would get mad at you if you suggested she needed hearing aids yet she kept the television volume so high you could hear it from the driveway. Her patio doors were sliding glass. A sturdy screwdriver beneath the door would pry the entire unit off its track.

    Let's see respect, even when we don't agree with someone else's opinion.
    BTW! The only gun not lost when I visited the grand Canyon stays with e 24/7.
    A side note for those who like this kind of stuff.

    Either way its true, tho "your an imbecile" is even better. Some of these idiotic Police statements on the gun forum web deserve to be called out, and not nicely, this being one of them. What next? saying "cops shoot more innocent people then criminals do"?

    Yep. We've owned and trained GSD's for many years. Admiral makes an awful fuss if anything is out of place. He never takes days off and he is militant in his protection of "his" domain. Granted, it is slightly annoying when I am awoken to his snarling and barking at 2am only to find my neighbor's cat in my driveway, but You can't sneak up on us. So I'm willing to overlook it.

    Neighbors cat wouldn't have made it in the driveway , it took three years after my last rotttie passed for rabbits to be seen in my yard again, if my alpha male barked (a rarity) I was out the door because someone was out there , I've never chained/kenneled my dogs I've used invisible fence for the past 30 years , the dogs have free movement any place on my property...We no longer have rotties (I miss them) we have three dogs including an American Stanfordshire Terrier a great dog just as loving and protective just a lil smaller much easer to take with us camping etc ...
