The last home invasion I was in was in 1998 in Globe Az . Biker gang broken in my buddy's house looking for his room mate , bad drug deal I guess , There was about 6 bikers in the house and bunch more outside and there for awhile it wasn't looking good . Dick retired San Jose Ca motor cop had his 66 S&W and I was carrying a 1911 both of us were sitting on couch in next room with hands our near our guns . My extra ammo and mags was in my bike outside where the Dirty Neckers were parked and Dick didn't bring any . A fire fight we weren't looking good . There was more bad guys then ammo . Now you know why I carry this when I travel , plus a bug gun .

Never leave extra ammo behind! There should be some kind of a rule about that...

I either carry a G19, or even one of my Blackhawks, and there is always a 12ga. with 00 Buck nearby.

I don't carry at home. I have a pistol on a shelf in my coffee table plus there is also a pistol on top of the table usually. Another one usually rests on my eating table which is not used for eating since the kitchen bar is always used. The bedroom has a 12 ga. in the corner of the room. My soft briefcase for work has a pistol and the case is always near to head out the door. The truck has another one waiting for me. So, at home I feel ok to not wear a gun because they are pretty much in reach.

Anyway, the C. geese in their migrations said the bleep fling to the swamps in Louisiana. Lets just stay here. Many of the ponds have aerators to keep them open all winter. Hence the name corporate geese.

They are vicious devils, esp. protecting their young. I use to chase them away from me when I was golfing. Talk about goose bleep all over everything. But, we couldn't do a thing about them.

PS: I spent 40 years in the Chicago area. All of my adult working life.

If I had home invasions in the area I would carry at home and maybe open carry when doing yard work to get the word out about my intentions. Around here, since 1994, someone stole a bicycle after having some "friends" over.

If you are a soft target and live in a low crime area you are the best place to do a home invasion . Your not prepared and easy picking .

I open carried on tractor and my farm in Tn because of Copper Heads and Cotton Mouth snakes around my pond ........... I never open carry , I don't want to give anyone a heads up on who they are dealing with . My neighbors don't know I even have a gun , they think they only need to deal with Duke . When I pull a gun out the bad guy will be dead . That way it is my word against dead man and my lawyer will be the only person to tell my story and talk to cops . That where Zemmerman screw up talking to the cops .

I have been robbed eight times, fortunately I was never home. However, the last robbers came back a week later, when I was home and I pulled a gun on them and they served time for the robbery. I carry a Glock 30S on my hip at all times I am awake. I keep a Glock 21 by the bed with a light mounted to it. I even carry my 30S to the bathroom with me. I live on a farm in rural Georgia, and have killed many snakes, a beaver, and a gator with my 30S. It stays as close as my shadow. "It is better to have a gun when you don't need it, then to not have a gun and need it." Break down my door and you are in my sights in a second.

Nope. I've got an older house with oak doors and frames, not easily kickable. I keep one handy enough to be ready by time some idiot did make it in. I'm in a decent city subdivision, the only trouble is some apartments three blocks away that rent to anything. If I ever felt I should house carry, I'd move.

There is no place safe in the USA . I move about every 5 yrs . Been all over the USA since 1970 and I have NEVER found a area that is SAFE . I live in the city now for heath reasons and to be near everything , but 90% of my house have been in the country . The low crime areas are soft targets and easy "PICKIN" . This is the easiest way to carry around the house and keep a real gun near me .

I don't carry on my person while in the house, but as I type, it's right beside me on the end table.
There is one available in my bedroom.
If I get up to go to the kitchen, it stays on the coffee table.
It's a pretty quiet neighborhood, which could be good or bad, and usually, anyone who comes to the house, knocks.

I always answer the door with gun in hand.

Had a "vacuum cleaner" sales person come by back in the summer.
I answered with gun in hand and when she saw this, eyes got big as saucers and couldn't get off my porch quick enough! LOL

Stays on my person while unloading groceries or anything like that and I'm always checking the area as I unload for suspicious activity, which could be directed towards me, as I cart the groceries in..

I also have three yard dogs, and an alarm system. A little paranoia is prudent.

My farm was in the middle of GOD'S world . The red star is where my house and 13 acre . I have no real neighbors . My dad lived 2 mile up the road and here was robbed 2X . There was bad guys using ATV to rob people in the my county . I will call this a attempted home invasion at 4 AM , Duke woke me up and I meet the bad guy at my porch with my gun sent and show it to him . He said he needed to use my phone , He won't give me a number to call for him he said he ran off the road and got stuck . I called Leo and they show up within 30 mins and they never found him or his car . I looked 1/4 mile in both direction that morning and never seen any tracks running off road .
