Considering I do not own a home defense shotgun nor a plethora of handguns that I can stash around the house I do carry while in my home. As soon as I get home from work my weapon is on my hip until the time I lay down for bed, then it is in the night stand. I am one who subscribes to the "it is better to have and not need than to need and not have" way of thinking. I carry when I leave the house so why not carry while in the house? As much as I would like to think of my home being an impenitrable barrier to evil, if someone really wanted to come into my home one swift kick would be all it takes to any door. I do own 2 handguns, but the chances of me being in the right room when the danger presents itself are very slim. That is why I carry at home.
