Get to it quick? Yes

Carry it with me? No

And I thought I was paranoid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes

Yes. When I'm asleep it's on the nightstand. When I'm in the shower it's on a shelf that's easily reached. I live in an area with a good share of meth heads.

Sometimes.
Right now I am sitting in the middle of a whole arsenal but I don't have one on me. Last night when we got home I kept wearing my gun all night mainly because I never got around to putting it away.
So for me,
outside, 90% of the time carrying
home, 25% of the time.
Working ouside (mowing, repairing vehicles, BBQing) 50%

Come in without knocking and I'll show you

Seriously though, I work out of my home 4 days/week, so I almost always have my gun within arms reach if it's not on my hip. I just made an effort to make it a habit. There have been an increasing number of home invasions in the region, and I'm not taking any chances.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 6:55:31 AM EDT
of course...how else do I get it from the safe to the front door? Psychic levitation?

Seriously though....

Only if I've worn it already, when I get back I leave it on till I go to bed. I can't carry at work, so when I get home from work, if I don't go out, it stays in the safe. If I leave the house for other than work, I carry, when I get back home it stays on me til I go to bed. When asleep it is "nearby".

It's not a paranoid issue, fr00t cake! I can't leave mine on the kitchen counter cuz I got a kid that will mess with it. But I absolutely want fast access to it ALL THE TIME!

So.. my only option is to holster up, Cleatus!

That is the funniest thing I have read all day!!
I don't but I have a small house and can get to my weapons quick.

Pretty much how it works for me too. I have no need to take iot off at home, since I'll just put it right back on to walk the dog or run to the store, or something else.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 5:05:05 PM EDT
My gunbelt pulls my jammy bottoms down. If not on me, I can easily reach them.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 6:41:39 PM EDT
There are only 3 things I do when I don't have a weapon on my person. Sex, sleep, and shower. There is always a weapon within arm's reach during all three.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 8:59:36 PM EDT
Yes I do.

For those of you who don't, but say a firearm is always in close proximity, what do you do when someone rings the doorbell? Do you always go and get it before you answer the door? Shit happens when you least expect it.

How about looking through the peep hole first?

When I'm in my house with all the doors and windows closed and locked, I just don't feel the need to be "carrying". Where do some of you guys live?
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 9:44:23 PM EDT
YES!

I feel naked without it.

I also wait until the kids go to sleep at night and sit in the lazy boy and fondle my AR.

Well, of course, who doesn't do that!!!!! Except tonight, I've chosen my M1A!!!
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 9:51:05 PM EDT
I carry always, When I go down for the night, I can retrieve it easily. I live in a area that hasn't had any crime other than a speeding ticket in months. But it's always with me. My kimber look's like it a hundred years old from just being carried. I hate that, but can't help it. Still shoots good though.........
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 9:55:14 AM EDT
There's really no reason not to carry in the house. The chances of a home invasion may not be high, but there really isn't a down side to carrying 100% of the time.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:12:48 AM EDT
You've got to get through 2 layers of armed human security just to get into my building. Then a steel framed double deadbolt door.

So, no.

If I lived in a house, that would be a different story.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:22:53 AM EDT
You never know when they will come.

Example:

In DOTD when the little neighbor girl is in the bedroom, in the middle of the night. They are like, "Hey little girl, what are you doing in our bedroom in the middle of the night?". The next thing you know the little girl is eating the dude! WTH?

My point is made. Out.

Military? or do you live in a bank vault?
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 11:50:57 AM EDT
When I'm wearing pants, which isn't often, I'll keep it holstered. When I'm less clothed, I carry it around in my hand.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 12:01:38 PM EDT
Yes, if you count putting a pistol in my pocket on the way into and out of the house. Once I'm in, it gets unloaded, ammo put in a speedloader, speedloader and pistol put in my nightstand.

The only safe, cheap way to do it with 3 rugrats in the house.

Nope. Luxury high-rise. It's not like there's absolutely no way someone could get inside my unit. It's just umteen times less likely / probable that it would happen. First, the building is situated on an island with only one road leading onto it. We've got a minimum of 6 armed security guards on duty at all times, including guard gate and front desk. Cameras are literally everywhere, and the property is very well lit at night. I'm sure there are some leaks in the system, but none that would make me concerned for my safety at all.

ETA: I have all Medeco locks on my door, that require 2 different keys. There are only 4 sets of keys to my place and each set is tightly accounted for. I'm the ONLY person that can obtain copies of my keys. If you've ever lost the keys to a Medeco lock, you'd understand why they're so good.

No Need .

I live alone and stash weapons using the 2 step rule .
Including a glock on a rope in the shower .

Actually it's the only use I found for owning a glock

Link Posted: 3/26/2006 5:32:57 PM EDT
I leave it on when I have been carring it all day. It's like the wedding ring. You really notice when it's off. Last night I fell asleep on the couch with it.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 6:16:23 PM EDT
I do carry at home but not 100% of the time but if I am not carrying either my AR or my carry gun is sitting right next to me

I couldn't vote because I have no friggin idea what your damn cartoon faces mean

I wish! I feel rather poor in my surroudings. I can't even begin to describe to you the way people around me live. I live rather modestly by comparison.

definetly not alone I fondle mine just about every night around this time or when no one is home. It's like when you where a kid and would get your fathers porno mags when your parents left the house. Pretty sad isn't it but I love it!!!
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 6:53:20 PM EDT
I am pretty paranoid and I have guns that are very accessable but I don't carry in my home. With small kids that you are wrestling with there is a level of caution that must be taken plus I don't live in a high risk area.

With that said, I have a couple loaded guns on each level of the house and we have a practiced plan of what to do if a codeword is mentioned... outside the house I carry CCW 24/7
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:45:20 PM EDT
First time poster, long time viewer.....

I carry from when I get up untill I go to bed, mostly just habit and that's the way I feel most comfortable. It sits on the night stand while I sleep and in the waist band the rest of the time. My wife also has her CPL but leaves her in the safe while at home and uses our two German Shorthairs for a burglar alarm. They're kinda high strung and notice every little thing. Kids in the house also, ages 13(son) & 8(daughter), both shot on a regular basis and have a firm grasp on the "NO touch unless on the range" rules.

P.S. You guys have a TON of info here, keep up the good work.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 11:13:17 PM EDT
I voted . Is that yes or no?


I don't carry at home but my Glock 26 and S&W Model 64 are close.

I started carrying all the time because it was new to me. I wore it constantly to get used to the weight and feel, then I got so used to it that it feels as natural as my drawers.

Now, then only time I'm without it is when I'm not dressed and when I'm at work, where it's not legal. I worry more about being attacked by stray dogs in my yard than a home invasion, but either way, it's there.
Link Posted: 3/27/2006 11:00:04 AM EDT
Yes my pocket carry BUG is on me unless I'm naked. Why remove it? I can hardly tell it's there any way.

I love the weight of my 640 snuggly wrapped around my ankle in a Renegade holster. With jeans, formal slacks or PJ's. With or without socks, it's always there.

Someone hit the ten ring when they said it feels like a watch in that it feels funny suddenly without it. I live in a house in a country setting that is not terribly rural. The house is appproachable from any angle. Dogs and guns are my first line of defense.
