No....not much ever happens around here.
The biggest threat here is dog poop.
But...
However I do have 9 acres in the boonies on another island.
I would carry when working that parcel.

Yes, usually my carry comp but if it's really hot I will downgrade to a 365 or similar lightweight guns.

Yep - went to the dark side, when I get up I pocket a Glock 42 .380.

I always carry in my yard so nobody can make me do any yard work.

Gee... with that logic, if people would just shop, dine and stay in "nice" parts of town, no on would ever be a victim of crime.

I guess since you live in a "good" area, you don't even have a gun at home, right?




Crime happens everywhere.

Is it required to have a ccw permit while carrying concealed on your own property ?

Yes, I carry while doing yard work.

Things can happen, anywhere, anytime.

Always be prepared.

Genius!!!

A Spfld 911 .380 in a pocket when mowing the lawn. Spare loaded mag, becuz why not? Middle-middle to lower-middle class neighborhood on a main street in a big Democrat city.

Besides, life is uncertain. Which is also why you should eat dessert first.

It looks like that homeowner's clip-on holster came out with the gun. Not so good. About 6 seconds from start of draw to actual weapon presentation.

Yes, but not for fear of people. Snakes are a problem and fairly large population of coyotes in the area.

I don't. But then again, the Mrs. provides over-watch protection from the parapet whenever I'm pruning the hydrangeas or picking daisies. Not to mention, the miscreants would have to breach the perimeter defense in the first place!!!

Sometimes, but it's for poisonous snakes not protection.

I carry everywhere, so yes.

People diss the .380 pocket guns for not being as good as bigger pistols. Which is true.

But these little guns have the HUGE advantage of being easily carried everywhere, all the time.

Removing my .380 to go put it in the gun vault is more hassle than just leaving it on me.

Two days ago I was lopping branches while climbing in our pine tree. Sig was in pocket, as always.

Absolutely. We’ve got rutting or doe’s birthing and they ain’t “Bambi-cute” either. My lab/boxer literally got chased in to the garage with a doe in close pursuit. When I was done mowing the front acreage and just stepping out of the shower, she was stretched out on the tile of the bathroom panting. Only then did I notice that doe laid her shoulder wide open. We get some with crazy glints in their eyes. I try to steer the tractor clear but absolutely I have something holstered in case the worst happens. Even when I’m rescuing “Bambie” from getting caught up in the sheep&goat fence mesh, I’ve got one eye on nervous mom. So far no wild hogs...yet. We’ve got mountain lion and bob cat but they really don’t come around except at night and usually the ill-cared for pet is the one that suffers then.

Yes. But I usually switch to a plastic handgun due to excessive sweat. There’s a drug house a few blocks away, and the patrons are not above picking up a piece of yard equipment to support their habits.

Yep. Whenever I can, I carry.

Did those idiots not see the old man's holstered gun when they tried to rob him?
