Typically not but have two chambered handguns close at all times. That said, on occasion, I will carry concealed when working in the yard.

I don't assume anything, and I live in a very safe city. But I can guarantee that all those people that were victims of terrorist attacks thought they were safe. So I carry all the time because the one time I don't will be the one time something happens. I don't for a second believe that I know what other people are up to.

Survived two home intrusions in the late 1980's in Pennsylvania. Now live in a county known for home invasions in Texas. Always prepared.

First, there are no wrong answers in this thread. What, when and how one carries is a personal choice. Situational awareness is key. Having said that, sit down with a local prosecutor or LEO and have a conversation with them about the crimes that have occurred in your neighborhood/area. I guarantee you it will be an eye opener. Just because you have not seen a police car in your neighborhood with it's lights flashing does not mean there have been no crimes in your area. Be well all.

It’s not just humans to be concerned about for some folks.

One of my friends in Western NY has a house in the middle of large acreage.

One nice spring day morning his wife was making breakfast and had the kitchen window raised and back inner door open to a screen door.
She heard a noise and looked up to see a large black bear staring at her thru the screen door. As soon as she moved away the bear charged through the screen door and into the kitchen area. (He evidently found the breakfast ham she was preparing enticing). She retreated into another room, and her husband reached for the buckshot-loaded shotgun they kept at hand. Could have gone a very different way had they not had a plan/available weapon.

+1 on keeping something within reach.

When I'm mowing I always carry something loaded with snake shot for the copperhead type trespassors. They can slip away if I don't immediately lay them to rest. Smile
