I either pocket carry a .22Mag revolver at home or carry a .357Mag revolver with me from room to room ... if the bell rings during the day, I can usually see through a glass pane at the top of the door who's there ... at night, I would never answer the door without a weapon in hand ... my front patio is illuminated with auto-on lights and I can see through front window shutters without being seen ... I live in a very quiet neighborhood of mostly retirees or older working couples, but it's also a summer resort so at this time of year the bozo quotient is high ... the rule is, always safe, never sorry ...
"The gun has been called the great equalizer ... It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." --Ronald Reagan
