    It won't do any good if someone is breaking in and your gun is in the nightstand or safe. I live in a safe area and use the security system. However, I feel better carrying WHEN I can.

    I carry at home, I figure the holster is already on the belt might as well keep it on

    I always have one near, if not on me, and I always do when I'm outside on my property. You never know when some crazy hillbilly or rabid coyote will jump out, lol.

    It's always on me or on the night stand when I'm in bed or safely stowed in the car if I have to go in somewhere that doesn't allow OC or CC.

    If I'm dressed, I'm carrying.

    Just bought my first house after 17 yrs in the military, wife and 3 kids, with a lot of valuables we've collected over the years so I plan on carrying when we arrive there next week. I subscribed to crimereport.com and it sends me weekly updates on crime in my neighborhood with locations where they occur. Not too bad around my area, but there are a lot of B&Es in the town. 35,000 Army + the community... Just read a soldier killed another soldier and shot the cop who reponded. Another lady was jumped as she opened her garage door at 5am to go to work.... Man beat her in the head with rock and robbed her. Can't let that happen to my family so some good alarms, cameras, weapons and the training and willingness to use them will be our defense. Eliminate the threat. Just realized I may be a GF addict :) haven't had coffee yet!

  12. Most of the time I'll either have it on me or sitting next to me. Never know when a bad guy will come a knockin' at the door.;)

    A half pot of coffee down, kids are fed, wife is out and i'm really wanting to do some shooting! Probably not a good idea to target shoot right here in on-base housing ;)

    Sadly I say when I leave my home I lock it up in the safe. My wife and my daughter are armed with pepper spray. As for me I'm a old street fighter from Brooklyn which might be a deterrent.

    I have my gun/guns on me whenever I am dressed. I have a 4 year, and 3 year old. So if not in my safe, then on my person. I do keep my 21sf in my room in a wall mount single pistol biometric safe. That way if the house alarm goes of I can access a gun with one swipe of my finger, but the boys still can't get to it.
