How many work from Home and Carry?

I work from home as Cloud Engineer. I always carry my EDC- I wake up and put my EDC on my person. My everyday carry style is AIWB, but sometimes I switch to OWB. This morning I decided to carry OWB and I have work being done in my house. I usually have a long sleeve flannel to conceal my pistol. But this morning, I did not put on a long sleeve before the plumber showed up; I had my door open for the construction guys to walk in because I am working and I am always in a working session. As I walk upstairs to grab my coffee, the plumber says hey, nice piece. Lol. At that moment, I knew not everyone is anti-firearm!! The plumber shoots too!! We had a great conversation on firearms. He carries a Springfield 1911 in his truck!!!

Unless I am doing dryfire practice, my house gun is always within reach.

When I work from home and my kids are also home, I usually keep my safe unlocked which is right next to my desk. If I’m alone, I’ll keep my shotty out next to me. There’s no way somebody is getting in the house without an alert or just hearing it, so I have enough time.

Am I always armed at home? No. Sometimes, but not always.

Do I know where the defensive tools are staged in each room of the house? Yes. Every single one of them.

I work from home, my EDC setup is IWB so sometimes it get’s a little annoying rubbing against my chair so I’ll take it off and place it, inside the holster, next to me. When people come over, I’ll pick it up and stick it back on my belt before I answer the door.

I am working from home and carrying while in a video conference call/meeting as I type this

I always get ‘dressed’ just like I would to leave the house when I work, and that includes my carry gun. Even work from home I don’t wear sweats/PJ’s or whatever while working, fully dressed (aka fully dressed means armed)

Within reach if working from home.
When I’m expecting visitors, IWB.

I have a unique situation, I am married to an ex nurse. When she got her first job, she worked in the ER in New York, and saw more that her share of gun shot patients. Thus she was indoctrinated into becoming Anti-firearms. After 38 years of marriage, she observed me properly training our 2 girls. After retirement we re-located from an anti-gun state where I actually was granted a CCW. [California] I also got CCWs in both AZ and Utah, and we now reside in NV [who has reciprocity with AZ]. Recently there have been shootings in nearby casinos and one just last week in a neighboring community complex, and several people in the clubhouse heard the shot along with the Mrs.
Recently when I was selling items online, while going to meet people I didn’t know she actually suggested I carry one of my firearms.

I am retired so obviously do not work from home but very much like you putting on my pistol is part of getting dressed in the morning. I feel naked without it.

I’m also retired but I feel like I work harder now than I did when I was a pilot. Part of getting dressed in the morning is putting my Glock in its holster and I carry it wherever I go mainly because just down the road about 100 miles is the south Texas border. And you know what’s going on there right now. We just never know what’s going to happen here so I would rather be safe than sorry. Just walking out to put the trash out, who knows what could be lurking around the corner waiting for me to show myself. You know, an illegal must be very hungry and is probably willing to do just about anything for food. I’ve seen a few of them walking the sidewalks of the main streets in town so I know their here.

I do think we should always keep our carry pistols concealed from the public so as to not make anyone uncomfortable. I think it also give one a Tactical advantage among strangers. I am an old geezer living alone way, way out in the boonies of baja Indiana on a farm. I don’t farm it, lease the tillable but take care of the rest. There is a OWB holster on my jeans. When I get dressed I fill it with a Sig and carry a spare mag in old Swiss Army Knife pouch. I have to wear suspender, eh? When I seldom go to town I switch to an IWB holster. I wear some kind of shirt to keep the Sig concealed. I have all kinds of alarms never surprised by visitors, I keep a shirt of some kind handy when working to put on real quick so as to not frighten the Mailman or some delivery driver. There are many reasons to always keep your gun concealed. All my neighbors & friends & hired hands know I am always armed and I am sure that word has been spread. When just laying around in my PJs I have a S&W 351pd in my pocket and a real pistol in reach. All my coats & jackets have a pocket pistol in the pocket so I don’t have to worry about getting to the Sig when buttoned up. Rather than messing with guns when putting on a coat I just have a gun in each one, eh? Another point; when routinely carry different guns they should all work the same. Any gun I carry or hide around the house or vehicles works by just pulling the trigger. I have hand guns with safetys or hammers or both in the gun safe, eh?

I went to the doctor and he seen my mag carrier and asked what it was. When I told him and showed him my holster on my other side he told me he wasn’t aloud to carry his in the office. We talked about what each of us carried and where to get ammo because it was during the shortage.

When I sat on a jury, after the trial the judge came into the jury room, I told the judge I carry daily and may have defended myself just like the defendant. He laughed and said, “I bet you permit doesn’t say “Judge” on it, mine does.”
