I carry in the home mostly to become more comfortable with it on me as I have only started to conceal carry for the past few months.

Me too...and that includes one in the bathrooms. I can't image a worse time for a break in, I don't want to, literally, be caught with my pants down lol.

It probably seems odd to some people to go armed in your own house but not far from where I live a woman (in a nice neighborhood) was working in her garage (she had a small business she ran from home) and sitting at her desk. She had opened the garage door a couple inches to help cool the space when an armed man managed to shimmy under the door and confront her. Fortunately she carried a gun at home and managed to draw her weapon and shoot first. The man fled and was found soon afterwards with multiple gunshot wounds (I don't remember if he survived or not). With home invasions on the rise, often targeting nicer homes specifically, it makes sense to carry a firearm while at home. I live in a nice neighborhood and a few years back someone tried to break our door down to get in and even kicked the window in knowing we were home. When it took longer to get in than he planned he fled and was not found. That was before we armed the place.

Absolutely, carry the Ruger SR9C daily and keep the Ruger P95 in the bedroom.

During the day not so much, at night the LCR or SR40 are usually what I'm carrying.

If I'm awake, I'm armed. It makes no sense to me to remove my carry weapon (.380 LCP) when I arrive home. We never know when bad things are going to happen. By the way, when I go to bed, my gun is on the nightstand-racked and ready.

I dont carry while in my home, but i and the wife are never more than about 15 feet from my lcr or her bodyguard 38. I do tend to carry when im doing yard work, even though we live in a "good" area. There are other areas that arent so good that can be accessed by the same road we live on, and it's occurred to me that when one is bent over picking up leaves or yanking on the lawn mower cord 50 or 60 times, one might look to be sort of vulnerable. And yes, we both have permits, so just about any other time, away from home, we carry.

Not in the house. I have motion detectors and three dogs. Nobody gets close to the house without me knowing.

Wink Carry at home

I either have it on me or very close by, I live in an apt. in a part of Detroit that is how should I put it, very active... My thinking is better safe than sorry and the surrounding area is in a word going to the dogs... Just taking out the trash could be an adventure but like my signature says, "It's cold outside when you don't have heat!!!"
