Since I have been licensed to carry I find that I was carrying "most" of the time. I didn't carry in the house, and if I had to run out for a quick trip to the supermarket or gas station I didn't always stop to get my carry gun. But despite living in a "good" part of town, I have become more and more aware of just how much crime is taking place all around me. I get a daily email from Crimemapping.com and whereas I used to go days and days without any report of any crime within the two mile radius of my home, I never now go a day without an email. Home burglaries and car break ins seem to be happening more and more often. Now I carry all the time. Even if I just step outside to bring the trash out, or let the dog do her businesses, or check the mail or whatever, at least a j-frame with +p ammo is in my pocket. Even first thing in the morning, when I let the dog out and I'm in my pajamas, I stop long enough to get a gun out of the GunVault by my bedside before I unlock the front door. Maybe I'm getting paranoid, maybe I am just more conscious that as I age I become a seemingly easy target for thugs who just see an old guy with a gimpy gait, but going from "mostly" carry to "always" carry has given me a bit more peace of mind.
