You folks might check out http://spotcrime.com/ if you haven't already.

It's a site that sends info on crime in your area (or whatever area you select) to you in email form. It can be a real eye opener. 8)

It's good for learning what types of crimes are happening around you.

Oh yes not all the time. When I holster up the 45 or 9 the wife kinda rolls her eyes at me. But at all times do carry except where prohibited by law 24/7 when out. Sometimes I am lazy and do not carry into the local grocery store.

Recently down in Louisiana it was a real royal pain in the butt. There law is black and white- NO CARRY WHERE ALCOHOL IS SOLD- don't try to elude this as it is against the law. I mean anywhere Liquor/Beer/Wine is sold (anywhere). So I was constantly disarming myself. I really like Gov. Bobby Jindal but it would be nice if this law could be changed.

Sometimes it hard for me to do yard work in 90 degree weather and wear a sidearm, just dont want to get it sweaty or dirty.

I know, it is selfish of me, but I leave my night stand in the bedroom defenseless when I am awake. The pistol is on me , not on the nightstand!!

Sometimes yes. Sometimes no.

I don't have kids, so I don't have a lot of unnecessary hoops to jump through if I need a gun quickly. And one gun or another tends to be close by wherever I am. I do work from home at least one day a week and I tend to carry all day when I do. I live in a safe, large suburb (one murder in the last three or four years last I checked). But anytime that someone might reasonably expect the house to be empty, I likely have a pistol within arm's reach.

Yes, I carry at home,,, I'm disabled but I'm to young to die and to old to take a butt whooping, If I'm awake, I'm packing and when in bed it's right beside me.
It's sad that this world has come to this but it is what it is, And I'm gonna make dam sure my family and myself are safe.

Peace My Friends

Regarding whether the Castle Doctrine applies to your state, most do have strong support for the home owner in a home invasion scenario.

Check yours at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_doc ... castle_law

States that have no or limited law:

These states uphold castle doctrine in general, but may rely on case law instead of specific legislation, may enforce a duty to retreat, and may impose specific restrictions on the use of deadly force:

District of Columbia
Nebraska - a bill was introduced in January 2012 that allowed deadly force against a person who broke into a house or occupied vehicle or who tried to kidnap someone from a house or vehicle; however, the bill was revised to include only an affirmative defense from lawsuits pertaining to justifiable use of force.[27]
New Mexico - Limited Castle Doctrine for self-defense inside one's home established by court precedence in State v. Couch (1946). No civil immunity from potential lawsuits by the aggressor or surviving relatives. In 2011, two bills (House Bill 228 and Senate Bill 29) would have granted civil immunity to individuals who lawfully use lethal force in self-defense, both bills died in their respective chambers of the New Mexico Legislature.
South Dakota - "Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person while resisting any attempt to murder such person, or to commit any felony upon him or her, or upon or in any dwelling house in which such person is." See South Dakota Codified Laws 22-16-34 (2005).[28]
Vermont[29]

Call your Attorney General or DA office. Ask them about the stand your ground laws and how they apply to you. They're the ones who will decide to prosecute you or not if you use your gun against a bad guy.

While I have my pants on, my weapon is holstered with a round in the chamber. No need for an external safety, I keep my booger picker off my bang switch.

My wife looks at me like I am an idiot, but last week when the neighbors home was broken into,( during broad daylight) she no longer looks at me that way.

Course it also helps that I have a yappy dog ( wifes choice not mine) that barks when a fly farts...

I don't always carry at home, BUT, my handgun is ALWAYS near me. If i'm sitting on the couch watching a show on t.v., my handgun is right next to me. I have heard stories of people breaking into their homes while they are inside!! When I go to bed at night, my handgun is in the nightstand draw.

My wife asked me why I carry at home.

I told her: "decepticons"

She laughed.
I laughed.

The toaster laughed.
I shot the toaster.

... never can be too careful!

LOL - Happy Friday everyone!
