    Do you carry around the house full time? I do and this is why.

    Yep. I keep it on me, and very close by while I sleep.

    Yes I do. I encourage my wife to do so as well. Also, we each have our carry pistols in our respective night stands. Am I likely to be a victim of a home invasion? Probably not. But it's possible, and I'll be ready as possible.

    It's actually the furthest from me that it ever is, except for while I'm at work. It's in the kitchen, I'm in the living room. However, I would have to walk right by it to answer the door...

    And I'm about to ditch this forum for a few so I can clean my kitchen...

    i don't OC in the house as there isn't really a need, because there is always some firearm withing reaching distance at all times. i do carry either a pistol or shotgun when in the woods on my place, just in case of happening across a wild hog or a poisonous snake. i have killed many water moccasons on my place over the years.

    always have a handgun if not a rifle within arms reach at home.

    home invasions can happen anytime. your no safer at home than you are outside in the wild.

    I started to after the first home evasion here, I had to wrestle the *******s in the door frame until my wife was able to get my gun, I won't put her in that situation again.

    i didnt see the link till i read this.

    i dont answer the door without a gun in hand the wife doesnt answer the door at all unless its ups or fedex. even then its still gun in hand.

    doors are always locked. guns are always loaded. if a gun is out of the safe its got a round in the chamber and a full mag if its going to just sit out for a bit other than getting packed for a range trip or cleaning

    Not much need of it around here in small town USA. I doubt there's ever been a home invasion around here. But, I do keep one by the bed, in back of the house, at front of the house and several upstairs... just in case.

    Firearm always within reach nearby, and with three dogs always on the alert, not even a ghost can get pass them. Enough warning given! ;)

    If I'm awake I'm carrying, if I'm asleep it is on the night stand, if I'm in the shower it is on the towel shelf beside the shower.

    I typically put on my firearm when I put on my pants in the morning.
    Then I just leave it on all day. At night it's on my night stand with an 870 between the bed and the night stand.

    Did not carry constantly until a few years ago(7-8). A bud was shot in his back yard while working in his garden. They caught the perps but he is still dead. I now carry and have others stationed around the home and even outside.
