Got multiple guns roud the house, garage, shed and car. Generally don't carry at home. Never more than a few feet from a gun. Only time I carry at home is one in my robe pocket when I go outside in the sauna or If I relax in the hammock.

Nope - I don't carry at home. I have 4 dogs, all rescues and very appreciative of their home and their people. I have firearms strategically placed around the home.

The cellphone may be with you, but which pocket is it in? Most people have their gun and phone on the same side -- strongside. I'm guilty of that too. I have spare loaded mags in my weak side pocket. The watch is an alternative idea that I've had success with.

I'm not a fan of the operator look. That's my personal preference. I have no issues with those who dress that way. I prefer the grey man look.

I don't read texts on my watch. That's what a cell phone is for. Of somebody is sending me a text, outs not important. I sure hope 911 isn't trying to text me after I call them.

Eww, no way! Apple products are icky, lol. It's a Samsung Galaxy watch. Apple watches have the square display that scream, " I'm a smart watch. Steal me." My watch is round so it blends in.

It has nothing to do with being an operator. That's what G Shock is for.

The Tread is a TSA compliant multitool. Also, most people don't recognize it as a bunch of tools. And, it's been very useful the entire time I've had it. It gets used frequently. When I go to the amusement park I have to leave the Leatherman Surge and my gun in the car. Should something, such as the baby stroller, have an issue, such as a loose nut or screw, I can still take care of it right then.

Your attempt to be derogatory is nothing more than elementary schoolyard bullying. You don't know me, and didn't ask why I do things the way I do. You're demonstrating that your conversational skills are on par with juveniles. If you were to engage in a bit of maturing, and start asking questions as to why somebody is doing something you may find the prepubescent statement you were considering making was completely unwarranted in the first place, thus avoiding looking stupid.

Remember, it's okay to agree to disagree. After all, I'm okay and you're okay.

Curios if your smart watch has photo/video function?
I figure if situation permits, I can id threat with photo/video.

It can receive, but can't take and send. That's not what I bought it for. If the situation plays out at my home, it'll be on camera automatically.

There's nothing wrong with not having a smart watch. To each, their own.

Just curious, are you right handed? How would you get your phone out of your pocket of you are holding a gun. I get that switching the gun into your left hand is an option, but are you as proficient with it in your left hand?

Different strokes for different folks. I feel the same way about Apple that you feel about Samsung. It's all an opinion, and nothing more. I do what I do because it works for me, including when I'm in my pajamas (see what I did there, trying to bring the convo back on topic?).

I don't carry inside my house typically, just because it's a small house and my carry gun is always in the same spot when I'm at home and it's easy to get to. But, if I'm working on my car in the driveway or watering out front I typically have my P365 or S&W 642 on me. My neighborhood's a little rough and you can't be too careful these days.

exactly...it's all about preference but since you said "ewww, apple products are icky" then that's name calling. if you had said, i'm very content with my samsung then i could respect that. i've had a few samsungs but i really am not happy with them. so yes...to each is own. moving on...

No. I have a gun within 10 feet of me at all times in my house though. I have hidden guns all over, and they are all intentionally cheap, yet very functional guns that will get the job done. My Canik TP9, 870, Sig P365, Kel-Tec PMR30, AR-15, and XDS-9 are all in strategic places, as well as having a home alarm installed, as well as having cameras. If someone is trying to sneak up on me, they have the WRONG house. I'll almost guarantee you I'll see YOU before you see ME.

This one is recent, states the father was alerted by a dog, but somehow the naked dude was able to enter the house with a piece of wood and get into a kids room. I google mapped the cross streets and it looks like its near some type of resort and a golf club/country club. So yeah invasions happen everywhere.
