Where in my post did it say I open carried it while at home? You're assuming.
I wear it on my belt and under my shirt while at home. Nothing about feeling "manly". For protection only. My family knows I carry and they have no problem with it.

DO YOU even read your own posts you typed?

Your title even states you say your family thinks you are a nut, and just now you sat they have no problem with it! lol

I rest my case, Ciao

Wow. You really want to argue don't you? Yes, my family thinks I'm a nut for doing it. They do not have a problem with it though. They roll their eyes and let me do what I want. There you go assuming again.
Now, what would you like to pick apart in my response this time? I went back and corrected my grammer so as to not offend.

no need to be so defensive about it. she was simply pointing something out.

lots of people carry at home. some don't but have one within reach at all times.

she has no way of knowing how your family reacts to you carrying at home.

lighten up a bit.

My apologies (sincerely). It just seemed like I was under attack and questioned as to why I do what I do.
This thread was not intended for dispute, but a simple question to get some feedback. I got the answers I requested and I'll leave it at that.

I CC at home, why change, and keep having to

change back, when you go out ? By keeping the CC

with you at home, at all times, you don't have to

worry about not having it at hand, or anybody else

coming across it.

But why entertain the discussion about carrying with others?

Concealed means concealed.

There's nothing wrong with keeping a gun handy while in your house. First thing I do when I get up in the morning is safety check my gun, put it in its holster, on my belt, and start my daily routine. What I don't do, and what I never do, is talk about it to anyone...ever. I don't understand the mindset of discussing this topic. Nothing good will ever come from it. Always carry, never tell.

Everybody thinks I am a nut, but I don't carry pretty much anywhere. I used to have something at hand anywhere in the house at any time before the separation, but not anymore. I have one at the ready in the house, but the rest of the collection is elsewhere. That having been said, the homes in the neighborhood go for well over $2 million and the house I am in is this little 750-square-foot place that my great-grandfather built 100 years ago (actually this place would go for $2 million without the house on it). Definitely not what would be considered a "high value target" by anyone's standards. It looks like a shack set back from the street.

I know, I know "I would NEVER go any place that would blah blah blah.." But I'm a season ticket holder and I will NOT miss seeing my beloved Hurricanes live whenever possible (..no matter how bad they're stinkin this year!!)...
