The Home Carry Kit Made Easy

Sites like The Truth About Guns often like to talk about home carry but don’t often go into the challenges surrounding it.


  • Complacency and Routine
    • Our home is our castle. Ideally, it is where we go to unwind and relax.
    • Our guard is lowered
  • Securing the Gun from Unauthorized Access
    • Sweat pants are not conducive to safely carrying a gun.

Think deployment before equipment!

  • Get a solid home defense plan in place and put it into practice!
    • Do you “lock your damn doors” routinely?
    • Does your house routinely look occupied?
      • Are your lights on?
      • Are your hedges trimmed?
    • Do you have an immediate action drill planned and practiced for yourself and your loved ones in the event of a home invasion?
    • Do you have a designated safe room?
    • Do you have any medical supplies?
      • To treat yourself or a loved one

    If you are not practicing your draw from your concealed carry holster, you are NOT prepared. I use a fanny pack when I have to, but consider it a last resort just above an ankle holster. But however you choose to carry, PRACTICE YOUR DRAW!
