    Carrying at home?

    I have gotten to where I carry when I am home. Even when mowing the lawn. I worry that I wouldn't be where I could get to a weapon if something did come down. Is that paranoid? there was recently two breakins in my neighborhood, They cought the crackheads, but it got me thinking.
    If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck!

    I am not sure where you live, but as soon as I get dressed I put on my side arm. So I don't think you are being paranoid, or maybe we both are. Just be careful you don't shoot your mower ( haha )

    Of course, I carry at home. With crime such as it is, you're an idiot not to carry all the time.

    Absolutely not, If we could predict in advance when a crime was going to be committed against us we wouldn't need the guns in the first place. Thats why you will read over and over again, If your going to carry, carry everyday and everywhere. You not going to need your gun when your in the convenience store in the ghetto, you'l wind up needing it when your surrounded by people in an uppity part of town where the biggest crime is stiffing the parking meter. Some people call us paranoid, I call us prepared. Don't get me wrong sometimes I envy them, ignorance IS bliss, but I prefer to live in reality.

  8. Putting on my gun is like putting my wallet in my pocket..I would never leave home without it! It is part of getting dressed everyday whether at home or going away. I have a gun on me or near to me at all times. Paranoid..NO, capable and ready..YES.

    I'm so completely accustomed to slipping a pistol in my pocket when I walk out the door that I don't even think about it most of the time. Tomorrow morning when I go outside to do my yardwork I'll reach for one of my CC pistols and I'll be set for the day. Home Depot, Walmart, mowing the lawn, catching some rays on my deck.....

  10. With all the reports of vicious dogs running lose and attacking children that are playing in their own yards, I think that alone is a good reason to have a firearm nearby. I don't want to be like that lady in the news a couple of weeks ago fending off two pitbulls with a butter knife.

    I don't think you are paranoid. I don't drive without buckling my seat belt, I don't live in a house without a fire extinguisher and I don't go without being armed; to me just standard everyday precautions.
