Said it many times, here and in other forums. If I'm dressed, I'm carrying.

Yeah, me and the wife both.

We get pissed off and start arguing, sometimes we

even shoot at each other.

All my neighbors carry, too. My pal across the street?

Sometimes I shoot him in the a$$, with my 22, when he

gets his newspaper in the morning. My neighbors

enjoy taking potshots at me when I'm washing my truck.

But I don't shoot back, because I don't want to break

any of their windows.

But when we start drinking on Saturday night, sometimes all the

neighbors square off and start having at it like the Hatfields and

McCoys. It's all good fun though, and on Sunday afternoon,

we all help each other repair the house damage. Ever shoot your

neighbor in the foot with a .32? Funny as hell...

I don't carry around the house but I have guns in several locations. I have a good 360 field of fire from the house which is on a rise overlooking open country, not to mention 4 large dogs running free so I get plenty of advance warning.

I often carry at home. In part because of home invasions, and in part because I CAN. Also in my vehicle and other places not specifically prohibited.

Why have a weapon if you are not going to carry it. What good is it in a safe on in the top of a closet or under your pillow in you bedroom if you are outside or sitting in your living room watching TV when someone decides to break in. You might as well sell them and practice martial arts.

When at home my G35 is always an arms reach away! I don't have it holstered, but sitting by me.

I usually don't carry at the house, but I ALWAYS have a pistol within reach. My 3 dogs will keep me alerted to any unexpected or unwelcome "house guests".

Here lately I get out my new 1911 whenever I go to sit and watch tv. I'm not allowed to carry at work but as soon as the whistle blows I put it on. Then I don't take it off until I shower then it's on the bathroom counter. Mowing, yes... We have had problems with feral dogs out in the country where I live. Quite a few have contracted lead poisoning.
