I almost always have my 638 in my Mika pocket holster whenever I have my pants on. I have a Glock 21 with light close by most of the time too. I have a no solicitors sign, but no dog.

One time I was washing dishes and I saw a man walking around my house, looking and making notes. As he rounded the front, I confronted him, Glock at my side and 638 in the pocket. He was looking at the house to buy. I advised it wasn't for sale. He asked if I was the tenant. I assured him I wasn't then realized there is another place with the same address a few miles away, one letter spelling different. Once I explained that, he was reluctant to leave until I didn't hide the Glock as well as I could have. He left pretty quick.

I drove by the similar address later in the day. Sure enough it was for sale.

I instructed my wife to never open the door to strangers, and if they want to use the phone, to ask him the number through the closed door....just like tx said. There is a .357 pistol by the door for her to show through the glass in the door if anyone persists in wanting in. She is not comfortable with guns, but at least she recognizes the need. One time a man called, said he was the exterminator, and wanted to know if our dogs bite. She replied, "maybe, but the house is full of guns and they are all loaded. Sure enough the exterminator showed up (new guy) and he did his check and got gone quick.

The wife had a situation years ago while I was off hunting. A guy came to the door looking for a non-existant address. She had locked the dog (had a nasty disposition) in the family room. Evidently the dog went through the back of the house and was at her feet when the guy tried to get in, she realized it when the dog started growling and the guy left. The dog got extra treats for a few days.

If someone wants to use the phone tell them the police are on their way to help them find a pay phone. At home my driveway is 700' long so someone isn't walking up there looking for anything but trouble.

My handgun is always on my hip if my pants are on . At night when I put on my lounging pants there is a handgun within arms reach in every room of my house, bathroom included. When I was growing up we left keys in the car and never locked the doors on the house. Do that now and you will loose you car and everything you own. Dont think it can't happen to you ,it can and possibly will.

All my friends know to call me before coming over to my house . I tell my friends NO night visits PLEASE . I NEVER open my door at night to anyone . Duke is always at my side and I carry 22 mag NAA 24/7 around my neck and a Glock in 40SW at arm reach and six 15 rd mags on TV stand and computer desk . There is 30 / 30rds mags loaded for the Mac10 outside my safe and the Mac10 is locked in safe since the Springfield and this black lives matter BS .

sigfan......I also remember having only one key, and that was to the car. That key stayed in the ignition, and the house door was always unlocked. I don't know when things changed. I went in the service in 1966 and when I came back from Viet Nam in 1968 things were different. Somewhere during that time in the service I think things changed.

Ridge Runner,,,,,Looks like you and I were in the military and Viet Nam during the same time period. I also remember things changing while I was away. Now I keep a gun in every room, loaded and ready. My sister asked me one time when she saw my shotgun by the door if it was loaded, I told her it was just a big stick if it wasn't. Things are definitely different today and I only live 10 miles from where I grew up.

I live in a Gated community now with gate that requires access number to be keyed in but every once in a while someone will come in behind another resident( gate stays open for 1 minute after entry ) Trying to get Developer to change to 15 seconds. So we are always on alert when we see a strange car in the area. I won't hesitate to ask them why they are there and who the are visiting, I am armed of course when I do so.

When I am home my safe is unlocked, I'd be dead by the time I got it open, it usually takes me about 5 minutes to open.

My brother lives about 2 miles from where we grew up in north Seattle. He now has a burgler alarm, caries 24/7 and when he smokes his cigars on the front porch his AR is on his lap. How times have changed!!

44s Rock .....Unlock you safe when your home , but close the door and turn the combination lock 10 number backward . If your last number is like 30 close the door and lock pin engaged , turn your dial backwards to 20 . It will be locked and all you need is to turn it to your number 30 to unlock it in a emergence and it will be locked to anyone trying it . And when you go out spin the dial totally lock if and if you forget to spin the dial it will feel locked to a bad guy . I hope this makes sense or maybe someone can tell it correctly .

The problem with the key is I always have trouble finding my keys and that is not a good thing if you need to open your safe fast . My gas cap key on my Chev trunk I just sold unlocks the dial .

We live back off the road too, so an occasional azzhat wanders in looking for something that he probably won't like much. If I'm sick in bed w/ the flu, there's a firearm under the pillow to keep me comfy. I carry on my person about 70hrs a week. Now I think I'll do a poll for that.

Duke my dog in not afraid of anything . If I pickup a gun he is at the front door 2 steps ahead of me and in his attack mode and I have trouble control him . All my friend call me 1st before coming over . I NEVER open my door at night and always have my gun in my hand . My front porch is fenced and locked in case Duke gets out of my control . That is a plastic fence with 2"X3" in the top and bottom rail so it won't break . Yes I can open and close the garage door with the fence up .

.

I love my NAA 22 mag as a backup gun around my neck . It disappear under a T-shirt and The only time I don't wear it is in the shower and I forget I'm wearing it . My Glock 23C or 27 is always with me too ,
