I don't carry at home, but pistols are never far away...

My bar is fully stocked.

Now, if I lived in a low quality neighborhood or there was a prison escape in my area or an outbreak of civil unrest was happening, I'd darn sure wear a pistol on my hip inside the house. Heck, maybe two...and if I wanted to have a drink, I would.
Abraham, I live in a neighborhood that leans to the dangerous side so when im at home i carry, especially when i have people i care about over. My front door is a heavy reinforced door (heavier than a nice hotel door) and I know that as big as i am if i would have trouble getting through that then anyone else that could is definitely getting 2 in the chest as soon as they get through the door.

As for some of the other posts I do fall more in-line with the belief "his house, his rules - my house, my rules" and having said that no im not a hypocrite by calling him out. he's my best bud and since the original post we have been at my place and the same thing has happened, (minus the debate). i was carrying, we cracked open a couple cold ones, and by the time i finished my second and he was reminding me to lock it up. We do have similar views on it. Personally If im drinking at home with the purpose of getting intoxicated then i lock it up. but if im comin home from work and just popping open a cold one (and just one or two) then i dont necessarily lock it up. but to each his own i guess.

Re: Carrying At Home

I think some are taking this a little out of context lol. this is my absolute best bud. when i say i called him out on it he didn't get irritated over something like that, and if the roles were reversed i wouldn't either. we just started discussing stuff and it provoked thought is all and i wanted to see what many of yall thought because many of you have been carrying longer than us.

And speaking of provoking thought the previous comment mentioned how there was not a sobriety clause in the castle doctrine and that is a valid argument i suppose but whats thought provoking for me is if something did happen like someone breaking down the door and the firearm was used how would the factor of sobriety play in? would it still be just as cut and dry as you being sober and shooting someone breaking into your home? or not?

I think I want you to explain why the heck you didn't leave.

:headscratch


I called him out on it and we ceased the drinking after the first 12oz curl and the debate started. lol

Carrying At Home

So I thought I would start thread bringing up the topic of carrying at home. Any input is interesting and welcomed. Considering anyone that can own a weapon can carry in their own home I think this could be a helpful topic for everyone -non chl holders as well. Anything involving concealed carry at home, open carry at home, carrying in your apartment, anything relevant.

As many of us know alcohol and firearms do not mix but i was in a heated debate with a friend of mine (a non chl holder) about carrying at home. he was carrying open in a holster and from what i understand it is legal because he is in his own home. The debate started when we cracked open some cold beers and he didn't put his weapon away. What do y'all think about that. opinions. comments? Lets get this goin!
