When we leave the house, most of us pack a Batman type utility belt worth of stuff. Gun, spare mag, flashlight, cell phone, lawyers business card, etc. Lots of us carry when we are at home. But do you also carry all the other accouterments? Especially your cell phone? If you had to make a quick escape to another room because of a home invasion, or heard a noise, you might not have a phone handy. If you always carried it, it would be accessible.

No home phone so the cell is the "primary". So basically, Yes, it is with me or accessible all the time...

We have no 'land line'...only our two cell phones. My cell phone rests next to my Kimber, which is always within reach.

We dont have a land line anymore, cell phones were cheaper for us. Our house is small so never very far from one of 3 cell phones.

land line in every room but the bathrooms. We finally got cell phones 2 weeks ago and mine lives in my pants pocket during the day. (No idea where Mr. Bunny keeps his.) At night, mine's on the nightstand next to Ziggy. They keep each other warm and snuggly, awww :)

Part of getting dressed everyday is the equipment, firearm and cell phone are always on me when I'm dressed. Bedtime the cell phone is on the nightstand right next to the car keys, with the remote for the alarm, guns are in the open nightstand safe,4 on my side 4 on his, his and hers flashlights as well, and 130 pounds of fur covered bad attitude at the foot of the bed:smile:

Carry cell phone at home? YES. My hardwired phone line is used only for my DSL connection.

All other phone calls are on the cell.

I have a cordless phone in each room of the house (except bathrooms). Plus my cell phone is on my belt as well.

NO land line here

Both (mine and work) cell phones are on me at all times. Wife also has hers on most the time.

My "At Home" EDC list is the same as the "Leaving Home" EDC list for a couple of reasons. First, why would "Home" be any different? The same needs may arise. Second, I might have to bug out fast, and need to be ready to be away. Thus, I see no difference where we live, which is very rural and deep in the sticks (although not deep enough for my wife - she keeps lobbying for a more remote site, LOL).

No, I try not too.

IMO, we all need a disconnect. My phone gets shut off a lot of times when I'm home. And I refuse live my life in a constant state of paranoia or connection. Are we really all that important that people need to get a hold of us 24/7? I doubt it. If a threat meets me at home and I have time to call 911, I have time to get the phone off the charger. Ready to meet a likely threat yes, but not ready for an expedition at every waking hour.
