Thread: Carrying at home?

  1. I don't think it's being paranoid at all.

    I don't keep a pistol on my person at home, but no matter where I'm at (even in the bathroom) my 12-gauge Mossberg is always within reach.

    I literally carry 24/7 for decades. 2 yrs ago I feel asleep on the sofa and woke up at 130 am with a black silohette standing 8' from me. I had my hand on my weapon instantly.

    Paranoia is when the thoughts of having a gun, or being assaulted begins to OVER control your thoughts and actions. That is, IF you are reminded of it every few minutes all day long. If it is disturbing your peace of mind, then you need to do something about it.

    Several times I have gotten to my car, gone back to the house to get my gun, and discovered that my full size 45 was already on my hip CCW. After 3 decades, sometimes I can't even feel that I have it on. Same weapon, same holster, same carry ALL THE TIME.

    I don't want an 8 pound 45 inch cannon to swing around.
    I prefer something smaller that is easier to manuver. 1911.

    My philosophy is simple: If I am wearing pants, I am armed.

    I carry at home unless I'm horse playing with the kids. Then I remove it till we are done playing.

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!

    I carry for work (Not LEO) but when i get home i lock it down. Honestly, i don't feel the need being armed at home where i live, said that, i have no problem with people that do.

    Honestly I think its stupid not to carry at home, what the point in being able to carry if you dont have it with you 99 percent of the time? waste of money otherwise, the way the country is right now, and peoples lack of caring for personal space, or property, hell yeah Ill carry at home, mostly openly, call it brandishing, idc, OC is legal in my state, I want everyone on my block to know Im packin heat incase they have any bright ideas to break into this house, they know theyll be leaving in body bags.
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American Soldier....One died for your soul; the other for your freedom.

    Again, i personally dont have a problem with it. In my case, i live in MD. Often when i am at home, i run errands, it would be a hassle to upload and download, coming and going, since my MD carry permit it limited to my "on the clock hours" while working. While i lived in TN, i carried at home, but it's not practical, nor needed for me personally right now, however that might change one day, who knows.

    Another side issue (albeit a small one for most...) when carrying at home. How many while carrying at home, will at the same time enjoy various "adult beverages?"

    Then we have a difference of opinion.

    I prefer the ability to fire 8 times and send 16 .30" diameter balls down range at well over 1100fps (I use 2 3/4" #1 Buck) every time I mash the BOOM button instead the ability to shoot the same 8 times but merely send a single .451 diameter half ounce projectile at 800 to 1000fps down range.
