    What’s the consensus on carrying at home? What difficulties have you encountered?

    Keep it covered. You don't want the spouse to get all confabulated over it. Pets might be fearful also.

    I don’t feel the need to carry at home. My living situation is a little different than most though.

    I keep one in about a three step distance from where I normally stay in the house most of the day.

    I had one within 3 step distance from anywhere in the house. But that was back before all them dayum scripts the doc said I needed. Had to sell them to buy scripts. Now I have one in the house.

    If I’m not carrying it’s within easy reach . There are no issues at home, the wife figures if I’m carrying she can leave hers in her purse unless needed.

    I don't feel the "need," either, and yet my Glock 20 is sitting in its zookeper ostrich and warthog holster suspended on an A&G gun leather belt, anyway.

    Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it

    Perhaps a shower gun is in the cards ...
    maybe a super soaker filled with Drain-O?

    With a ziplock bag, any gun can be a shower gun.

    I've got lots. Have a spreadsheet to keep up with those I don't see often. They get an annual dusting. But never carry around all the time.

    No kids or kid visitors, but I do have to hide several the few times a year we have overnight relatives/lefty guests.

    I always wear a pistol, but my skinny girlfriend makes me remove my spurs. She says they chafe.

    I take it off when I get home. Between the quiet street, the security system, and the 100lb GSD, I'll have fair warning if any troublemakers are about.

    This is my "car carry" gun and the "home defense gun" kept within a few running strides from me when I'm home and the vehicle is parked, unattended.

    6 rounds of .357 magnum problem-solving pills.

    I've lost all of my firearms. Boat turned over. Saving up now for some single shot 22s of some sort.
