Serious topic, and got me revisiting my own setup after reading this FTF article: http://www.firearmstalk.com/entries/Do-You-Carry-At-Home.html Right now, for me with a 2 year old and a baby its tough and my system is constantly changing as they age. When my 2 year old was much younger I occasionally carried IWB in the house after work....until I put it on my nightstand for the night. Now, because shes older and WAY more active and likes to play and roll around....I do not carry while at home. Its just too risky in my opinion. When I return from work....I put it atop a tall china closet downstairs until its bedtime, then it goes in my closet shelf in a small digital lockbox....WAY higher than she could ever reach or access. I keep the lockbox unlocked at night in case I need to grab it ASAP, and never a round in the chamber. I lock all doors & set my house alarm once the sun goes down and it stays on til I leave the next morning. for now, this system works for me and is about as good as I can get it with 2 little ones and occasional company during the week. Anyone have any suggestions or comments to contribute? I need to strike the perfect balance of safety with comfort and security.
