My carry pistol is a Glock 19... it is also my home gun. It is first gun in my hand on the way to getting my 18" Remington 870 12 ga.

I have started carrying my Keltec P11 in my Cherokee but am looking at getting one of FM's Detective HiPowers and hoping I can hit better with it than the P11.

I would have to answer yes and no. I have severa guns that I use for protective duty in the home, but I also carry them as well. I also have long guns in the house.

I needed to vote yes for all but the last question. I have a couple dedicated house handguns, as well as a long gun, stashed in quick access containers in different parts of the house. But I also put my carry gun right by the bed with my cell and my surefire flashlight when I hit the rack.

Hi there Stephen,

I keep a Glock 23 for the House Gun, loaded with Federal Hydra Shoks next to a Surefire Flashlight and my cellphone at night.

I also have a Mossberg 500 loaded with Dove Loads for a primary defense weapon. I keep the rifles unloaded, but with Magazines filled at the ready in case my orbits carry me outside of my immediate domicile.

I like redundant systems for self-protection.

Hard to answer as I agree with ELB and legacy. I have upstairs house-guns and downstairs house-guns. I carry different ones for different situations, and when not in-holster or pocket...it's a house-gun. My non-carry "shooters" function as my office-guns.
Sorry for the "non-answer"!

Mr. Camp,

I have to give a "non-answer" as well. I voted "one gun" but that's not entirely true. When I'm here at Ria's (where my computer is now) I only have the Taurus 92 I carry. However, if I were to make it into a dedicated home defense weapon, it would get a 6" barrel, 20rnd magazine, night sights, and maybe a light of some sort (pros and cons here abound, but that's another thread). It's what she allows over here. She's not anti-gun but not used to them.

At home I keep a combat-rigged Mossberg 500a w/ a 7rnd mag. But the Taurus is in reach as well.

I would say my Taurus is primary backed up by whatever other weaponry I have at my disposal, whether it be shotgun, .22 rifle, or non-firearm weapon.

I used to go shotgun first, when I was single.

I carry an S&W 042 or a Glock G19 or a S&W 629MG or 625 depending on circumstances.

At home I use a different 625 as back up to an 18-inch, 20 gauge 870 Wingmaster.

I normally have but one handgun thats not locked up; it serves as both the carry and the house gun. I rotate between several depending on circumstances. Normal carry is a 442.

There's a 12ga Topper hanging over the bed, mainly for 4-legged vermin.


Regards,

Pat

I use a 624 as a bedside gun. It does serve as a carry gun, but not often this time of year. The 624 is backing up a Winchester model 12.

My bedside table gun is a Ruger stainless Speed Six 3" .38 loaded with Federal 147 +P+ Hydra Shoks. There is another gun stashed in the bathroom, another in my office, and one in the kitchen. There's also a 12 bore by the front door loaded with non lethal 00 rubber buckshot and a .22 Ruger carbine. On a rack above the door is a Winchester M94 16" .357 Magnum.

House GUNS, not GUN. ;)

My "heavy" pistols and revolvers are my house guns. A little too "heavy" for comfortable CCW but perfect for the bedside and another here at the computer.

BHP pistol, 870 long gun. Trouble is, I've grown fond of the Browning and don't want it confiscated as "evidence" and would like to replace it with a Glock 17. Something I feel I could rely upon equally as well with zero emotional attachment.

It's on the "to do" list, but at the bottom. Too many kids. :)

I have loaded guns all over the house but I guess you could say my primary HDG is the night stand gun, guns.

It is a laser equipped Kimber Tactical Ultra and usually there's another Kimber in the night stand to.

The Tactical Ultra is my first choice for carry as well as HDG.

If I thought I needed a gun as I headed out the door I'd also grab a shotgun or preferably a rifle or AK pistol.
(all have Red Dot sights)

I live out of town.
Probably if it ever came to me having to shoot it would be outside after dark and the laser or Red Dot are in their element.
