With a shoulder holster or chest rig, you don't need a belt......or pants!!!

That broke me up!

At home, in track pants, G19 in right-hand pocket, cell phone in left. At night, in bed, pistol on the bedside table. Out and about, Benchmade folder right-hand pocket, Glock 4th gen in holster, spare G17 magazine. And of course Surefire flashlight in belt holster always.
Just had my 85th birthday party at my Sons lakeside house, fantastic. Yes, we danced, my Wife of 28 years (Second try!) Gen 4 under shirt.

The freedom here in Florida! Fantastic.

If my pants are on, I’m armed.

I generally don't carry while in my home. I have hardened all of the entry points of my home and have exterior cameras with motion sensors. I'm alerted when anything (man or beast) steps on my property. Getting inside my house would take a helluva lot more than a boot to the door. I have weapons within quick access should I need them. If I'm in the garage, or stepping out to my truck or the mail box, I am armed.

home is the place where I don't carry, or wear pants, if I don't feel like it.

I put on an IWB holster (or, once in a blue moon, a pocket pistol in a pocket holster) right after my belt goes on in the morning. In the evenings after I get home, it is either on me again after changing clothes, or close by in a Nemesis holster. Having it on an end table or bedside table like that is as close as I get to staging. It goes in a quick-access box at night.

But I have a 3-year-old granddaughter who visits at least twice a week, so any other kind of staging is not safe at my place.

Personally I think the best home defense weapon is a 12g shotgun. I keep one beside my bed and I think that if someone was coming through a broken window, I'd likely have time to go get it.

I don't carry in my own home or out in the yard. There's one handy though.

Here's to wishing each of you the most boring and unexciting Halloween possible in your quiet home and neighborhood.

No but only because I haven't found a pajama gun that I like. As I've gotten older, I've come to prefer comfortable clothes around the house and that usually means pajama, lounge, or flannel pants.

This is another chance to complain about how the tiny polymer revolution has largely ignored DA/SA. If somebody made a decent decocker-only DA/SA on par with the Sig P365 or some of the little polymer guns in .380; I'd buy one.

I almost bought a Taurus Spectrum right before the pandemic and now I wish I did. It isn't DA/SA but it is a true double action with no manual safety. That's the next best thing as far as I'm concerned.

If one occasionally wanders around scantily clothed, it lets everyone in the neighborhood
know that 1. they don't want to fight with a half-nekkid or more nekkid grizzley bear...
and 2. getting shot might not be the worst thing that could happen to them...

I always have a 442 in my pocket. Most of the time a second is in my waistband.
