Do you carry your gun at home?

    I was just wondering how many of you carry your gun all day every day, even when home, or just when you leave the house. Personally, I put mine on at around 9:30 this morning and I'm still wearing as I type this. I thought this would be a decent discussion.

    If it's out of the safe, it's on me, doesn't matter where I'm at. Except at night, then it's on the night stand.

    depends who is around and.what I'm doing. if the grandkids are here I always have it on. alone or just me and my wife, it's close by. there are days I never take it off, and days it sits at my desk while I do stuff on the interwebs.

    If I'm not at work, it's in my waistband. No reason to take it off so yeah, I carry at home.

    No. We don't have kids, so I normally keep my carry close and put my nightstand gun in its place when I get home. Of course if people are over, that's different.

    If I didn't have a 12 & 4 year old at home, I'd be more tempted to leave it close by. Since I have them though, it's on me or in a the safe.

    Yes. I get up and my gun goes on as part of my daily dressing routine.

    I work from home, so some days I never leave the house. Still wear the gun.

    Funny statistic... 100% of home invasions occur in the home.

    Mine is usually on me all day, no kids to worry about, and most of my holsters are comfortable enough that I'm used to it and it doesn't bother me.

    If I'm laying on the couch watching a movie before bed or something, I may take it off the belt and put it on the coffee table.

    The only time I don't have a gun on my hip is when I'm in bed or taking a shower. When I'm in bed it sits on my nightstand.

    If you take it in the shower with you, then you only need to oil it once a week, you can cut out the weekly cleaning...

    All day every day. Unless you live in a magic place where bad things only happen when you want them to.

    If I am awake I am carrying a gun(s) and if I am asleep I am so near a gun I can hear it snore:D, I would hate to think I was a victim only because I was to lazy to carry.

    Most of you have restored my faith in humanity. Carrying is also part of my routine. I've even been known to take a nap with a gun on.

    I've thought about that but I am betting on an early warning from the dogs giving me enough time. It is always close but not on me.

    If I had a pocket gun I would.
