Never go anywhere without one! I had rather have one and not need it than to need one and not have it.

If I don't have a weapon nearby, I have Okimar--and that's kind of like the same thing....

BTW, my thoughts on Zimmerman. The system works--like it or not--it works. The evidence was presented, a jury gave it's findings, and he was found not guilty.

Do they sometimes get it wrong? Yes. Is it a perfect system? No, BUT it's a lot better than the system in some other countries.

Try to judge justly...you obviously don't care about evidence...The hood rat had been busted for weed at his school and that was the only reason he was in the area...can't you see?
I can see that a man was shot and killed by another man that kept a gun nearby.

I have 3 loaded pistols in the house plus I don't leave the house without a pistol in my back pocket. I hope I never need it. I had two men come in my house in the middle of the night and I was sure glad I had a gun by my bed :)

..and kept a gun nearby.
and like it or not the state did not prove it's case , and the jury did it's job , no mr. z. will still be tied up in court for years with a wrongful death suit and i bet the phone was smoking last night between obama and holder with O telling holder he had better bring mr. z up on civil rights charges A.S.A.P.!!! so in the end NO ONE will win except maybe obama and holder who will use this to further drive a wedge of hatred ,distrust ,anger between all races that make up AMERICA !
most sane folks in this crime ridden country do keep a firearm close and who can blame them . look at the arrest of the 4 men who beat another man to death in atlanta just for being in the so called wrong place , maybe if he had a firearm on his person maybe he would still be alive today . and yet the biased press says little to nothing about the hundreds of murders this year alone in big cities like chicago ,philly, miami ,memphis ,st. louis , l.a. etc. and most of those killed were folks minding their own business ( very selective reporting by the press ) where is the outrage for these victims and the people who killed them ? and these murders ARE NOT BEING COMMITTED by law abiding firearm owners but by gang thugs who know that even if caught and found guilty they will have an easy life in lock up , perhaps all states need to abolish life in lockup and have the guilty put to death in the same manner in which they killed their victim ?

and in keeping with the forum always and everywhere ! yes even in the bathroom. for the record i have never had to pull the trigger but have had to clear leather twice because i felt and believed my family and self were in danger and harm the sight of staring down a cold barrel of my 1911 was enough to stop the thugs on the spot .

There are guns all over the house--depending. lol. I, personally, do not carry concealed--Oki does. But yes, I do understand, when I was a mere child bride, we had some unsavory character try to break into our house, Oki was not at home at the time, and I like to believe the sight of a very scared lady holding a .44 pointed at him, caused him to decide to leave and not return.....

The wife and I always keep one loaded and close by, in our bedroom. A 9MM on her side, and .45 on my side. As there have been a few break ins in recent years, but not quite as often as in the nearby cities.

It does give me a little piece of mind, knowing that she is armed and can use her firearm proficiently in case of my absence. As I often have to work night shifts.
