Do you carry IN your home?

I had some night visitors around my home a couple of times. Once they went into my P/U truck and another time they pushed in the gate hasp on my hurricain fence.(bent it inward about 10 inches).The two Basset hounds & I must have been OFF that night, we didnt hear a dang thing!
This is cause for beefed up security so I purchased a RUGER P95. I went to a gun show here in El paso & bought ammo & a nylon shoulder holster. I have a belt holster but prefer the shoulder rig.Just feels good & most of us 53 yr olds have too much already around the waist!
(Did I hear an AMEN way in the back?
Anyway I carry this 9mm in my home & dont think a thing about it. I dont even notice its there most of the time.Several years in Scouts in the Army & several trips already to the range tells me if Mr Felon comes visiting,he aint gonna be happy!
QUESTION:
1-Do YOU carry IN your home?
2-What type of weapon/ammo do YOU carry?
Thanks for the replies,stay safe & This SCOUTS OUT!

I guess I am fortunate to live in the area I do. House is never locked, keys in the car.
I have no reason to carry unless I leave the area

I often have a 642 in my pocket at home. But if I do not, there is always a firearm handy. I live in a area that really doesn't have any trouble, but you just never know.

I'm pretty fortunate in the "neighborhood" area too. It's a private road (yes, turn off the paved road) and there's a total of 14 residences on it. Keys left in vehicles, doors and windows open, etc....at least most of the time. Recently there's been some unpleasantness with a couple of 'kids' who'll steal anything that isn't welded down. Even though I'm in a good area, I'm still carrying. I got a few looks for the first couple of weeks, but now it's just accepted that I'm one of those nuts that always has a gun handy. I explained the 'have and not need' philosophy to them, and when a couple of Rotweilers started killing chickens and chasing other animals (and children) they understood. Incidentally, nothing's been stolen yet from my property.

Oh, and I probably live in the "safest" neighborhood, on a military installation, but people still try to break in. Never be too safe.

If I'm awake, my SP is on me. Most of the time, I have something else besides the SP handy, but the SP is always on me. Can't be too careful!

Well call me paranoid but I'm always packing. Matter of fact it feels strange not to have a handgun on my person. The Berretta 21 is a constant companion (yes I know..mouser) and the Kahr CW40 rides in a Galco IWB when I'm anywhere in street clothes. The Oldfart...

Personally, I usually don't tote, about the pad; but something's always within easy reach. If I lived in, or near a big city; it would be a different matter.

How many have past incident for keeping a gun on their person in their house?
I guess in some cases it would be too late.

I don't actually carry in the house. But I do have handguns readily accessible in the rooms where I spend the most time. I also will carry a handgun when answering the door.

Well now Hairtrigger one of the problems with not having it on ones person is that if ya do go snatch one up in a nasty situation and use it...that makes it manslaughter in many cases..not self defense. See, those parasites we call lawyers will say..."If you had time to locate/unlock the lock and prep a weapon you had time to avoid the situation, run away or call the cops." Yup, I know it's all bullshit but that's the way it is. That's one of the reasons I don't agree with gunlocks, "safe-boxes" or keeping one stashed in the glovebox of a vehicle. IF you have time to retrieve it you had time to blah..blah..blah. This is just my own opinion of course. Audie..the Oldfart.
