How many work from Home and Carry?

Funny when we go up north to Flagstaff or Williams to play in the snow for more than 3 days my wife always says she loves the snow and the cold, but remind her she only likes it for a short period of time. I get missing the snow or the sun, goes both ways really.

We visited Michigan when I was a kid for a month at a time, usually in August. Humid as Phuck…i finally understood the taking a shower and still being wet after drying off. Crazy

You mean it snows in the town where Buck Williams lives?
It didn’t feel like it when I visited a few summers ago.

Yes, during the winter time…summer time is usually 10 degrees cooler than the greater Phoenix area…

I work from home as well. My firearm is always within an arms reach. I am thinking of getting an OWB holster for inside the home because the IWB becomes highly uncomfortable after a couple hours.

Hmmm why didn’t I think of that before?

If you have a Canik, you can make the holster that comes with the gun either IWB or OWB!!!

This ambidextrous lefty would need to make a major adjustment.
For almost three decades, I’ve been wearing a belt…

counterclockwise, from left to right , with the end of the belt going through the buckle and ending on the left side of the zipper. However, a left-handed man might end up wearing their belt clockwise, from right to left, due to their dominant hand.

I now recall I was in my late teens and applying for a job. An older cousin saw my belt and remarked, “you’re never going to be hired wearing your belt like that.”
So, I’ve been wearing it like a true lefty until he noticed. I knew he meant well. :blush:

The OWB holster would be a pain if I put it at 10 o’clock (your 2) on a counterclockwise belt like this


Versus this

Man everything a body could possibly want is in Vegas, that Gold and Pawn place, Counts Customs and everything under the hot sun is there. Anytime I’m watching TV and a cool custom car shop or a bike shop or anything cool and it’s always in Las Vegas or like they say “ Los Wages” lol! Oh yea a military vehicle sales collection yep that’s right Vegas, anything in this world that can be bought you can buy it there. If I won the power ball I’d go straight to Vegas and never set foot in a casino but I’d have a fleet of car haulers going with me to haul all the 60s model cars back here.

Hey Buddha! Interesting post.

Not working at home currently, but does bring to mind, if one is in a large enough sized home, I can see how carrying on one’s person or table/stand in the room one’s in makes sense.

But if one is walking from room to room, makes sense to have it on one’s person.

Should an intruder quietly or quickly make it inside, do we have the speed to reach where we last left our firearm, or even remember where we last left it, in time.

Should we go smaller or light on the body carry when in the home? With larger back ups hidden? Guess it could depend on where we live.

Perhaps more so for the thread on flashlights, one odd experience I had was in an office building away from home:

The building and state law did not allow firearms legally. As I was walking into the restroom, another person was walking in behind me. I as entered the toilet stall and began closing the stall door behind me, the lights went off, no windows, the room went completely dark black. In my mind, I concluded the person behind me turned off the lights as the switch was “right there”.

I was locking the door as I usually do upon entering a stall. I had a flashlight in my pocket and non lethal EDC tools. But before I could reach for them, the lights went back on. The other person went into a stall, then that person left without washing their hands (I knew as I could see their feet).

But at home, when it’s dark, what if your power was cut off? Are our flashlights on the ready and that easily accessible as well?

IDK. Food for thought.

We’ll be in Vegas next month.

Could easily no joke drop $100k a day there, no gambling, and not even take anything tangible back with us…let alone if you start taking things with you

On my person, 1911, a pocket flashlight and an edged weapon. Until I go to sleep-- next to my bed is my shotgun.

I was leaving the kitchen for the bedroom which is on the other side of the house when my wife reminded me to pick it up from where I hid it.
If she didn’t bring it to my attention,
I would eventually notice a minute or two later but that means lost precious seconds or even a minute to figure out where to look for it. What if it’s an emergency?

Funny you say that on flashlights. I have one if not 2 in every room as well as a firearm. Like you said you never know if you can get to it.
Thats probably why I leave mine on until bed time. :saluting_face:

Kinda an easy to carry tool as well. They are not our grandparents’ flashlights any more. So many options nowadays, and easily conceled. Some I prefer to clip on a pocket, shirt or front/side of pants, some I just drop into my pants pocket, or keep in the car within visible reach.
