Home Defense
#1





Looking around YT and came across the above video.  He's got some decent tips and such but one of the things I keyed in on was that he advocates carrying your firearm on your person, in the home, up until it's bed time.  Does anyone carry in the home?  I have weapons strategically placed in almost every room but I normally don't carry on my person unless I'm getting ready to leave or have just come home.  I understand this can be location dependent as well.  My brother lives out in the country so he normally carries, particularly when out and about on his property.  Mainly for critter-control but he's also had rabid animals and big dogs wander onto his property.  

Thoughts about the video?
Governmental dependance makes for poor self reliance.

I don't carry at home. The gun is never far away, the doors are locked, and the dog is loose. I also live in a semi-rural residential neighborhood that doesn't offer much danger.
This, much like other topics, is very personal and depends greatly on location. Everyone has to do a risk and reward analysis based on their own situation.
Kind of like carrying a trunk gun(a current debate on Glock Talk), you need to assess your situation and decide if you think it's right for you.

I saw that thread on GT and put some links on it  Wink

I've updated that thread here as well with all the stuff going on lately.

I've also looked into locations in the one room that isn't covered yet.  I'm talking main and bedrooms of course, nothing in the bathroom  Tongue

I am now in a similar situation since moving. Its a quiet neighborhood in a small town in the upstate of SC. Still getting to know the sounds of the area at night. Like you our dogs are loose ( laying around is more like it) but they react to everything they hear. Since moving we have had to re assess our situation. The only problem I see is the area is too quiet, meaning keeping ones guard up is more difficult with not much happening.

What do you see, that needs to be changed in your new location?
