    I don't.
    I am constantly in and out of my condo and though it would be perfectly legal it would just weird out the neighbors....neighbors who have been very gracious about accepting my other weirdnesses.

    Instead, I have guns hidden within reach all over the house.

    Of course if things got weird, the handgun worn on my side would be the least alarming thing I would be carrying.

    Absolutely, and when i'm not dressed to actually wear it (wearing my sweat pants relaxing in the evening) i'll have one on the coffee table right next to me. I'm armed almost 24 hours a day.

    If you see me with my pants on, I am armed.

    If you see me without my pants on, you had better be BB&E (Blonde, Buxom & Eager ;) )

    Don't be worried about weirding out the neighbors. One of my neighbors is a lib and don't like it (he's told me so) and my other neighbor is a 80 something year old widow. I'm always helping her out and she is very comfortable with it.

    Always carrying a gun, no.

    Always near a gun well yes (3 right now), and pepperspray everywhere, knives everywhere, and always alert. :)

    Always, from the time the pants go on till they come off. If for some strange reason I'm running around the house in PJ's (not often) then I either carry it or it's at hand. When I'm in bed it's on the nightstand about a foot away.

    Yes. And screw what your neighbors might think. If they don't like it, they can move.

    And if they moved I would lose three or four excellent neighbors.
    I've lived in this condo for 30+ years and the current crop is the best set of neighbors I've ever had. :)

    I have no problem with taking two seconds to throw on a photographers vest to conceal my carry pistol when outside.
    I'm not out in the country, I'm in the Buckhead Business District.

    I put my gun on before my socks in the morning and it only comes off to get a shower or go to bed. I have a gun in every room and always by my side. If I have my pants on, my gun is on. As for neighbors, I live on acreage and everyone around here shoots and carrys, but I sure wouldnt let a liberal change the way I carried. Screw em.

    I live WAY out in the boondox, and have a fur covered alarm system in the house all the time, so I don't usually carry indoors, although I am never more than five seconds from a variety of loaded weapons. If I step outside, though, I am wearing open carry with 18 rounds. If I am leaving the property, I am CCW with 52 rounds.
