i gotta look into those nonresident permits
TX has basically no restrictions on your property, as far as HD shootings, unless you do something really over the top, it is really rare to see someone prosecuted for a shooting of an intruder. This holds true even in the most liberal counties (Dallas, Harris, Travis). Off the top of my head, I can only think of one homeowner prosecuted for a shooting recently, and was that guy in Houston who very much provoked the incident and shot a unarmed guy basically for playing his music too loud.
On another note, even for people who live in the so called "PR" states, I strongly encourage them to look into a FL or UT nonresident permit. It at least gives you that ability to carry if your travels take you to "free" states.

Down state Illinois is good to CCW in your home and on your property. You can even carry on someone else's property if they say its ok. Open or concealed. Not upstate CHICAGO. they have a bunch of laws limiting your options. I carry 24/7 in my house and on my property.

I do not "carry" around my house, but a gun is never more than a few feet away usually. They are kept in a safe place that is accessible for me, but not for my daughter to reach and grab it.
Im packing heat unless I am asleep in bed........then its on the night stand next to me.
New Hampshire is one of the safest States, it was ranked #1 CQ press survey on state crime in 2009.
Yet our state has some of the most relaxes Gun laws in the USA.
There is no permit here or license to own Guns...Only exception buy handgun from private party as opposed to an FFL
you need NH license to carry or be known to seller. open carry no registration here or permits.
if you want cc for handgun cost is $10 for 4 yrs and one form to fill out. lots of talk going on..Stay Tuned
Live Free or Die " New Hampshire State Motto "
New Hampshire was the first of the British North American colonies to break away from Great Britain in January 1776, and six months later was one of the original thirteen states that founded the United States of America.
My primary HD gun is my M&P 40 with a light and night sights, which I keep literally 5 feet from bed and is loaded with a 20 round magazine with another spare. If I can't defend myself with 41 rounds of 40 in close quarters, then I deserve whatever happens!
It is a sad state of affairs when so many including myself feel we must have a firearm present and handy even in our own home. Here in Springfield Mo. I never thought growing up this was close to a bad town. Now there are home invasions on the news often enough to cause me to keep a pistol handy. I can not imagine living in a war zone city like Detroit or Chicago.

I don't set out to carry around the house. I've got a few things 'handy' (that vary from .32ACP to 12 gauge with numerous stops in between- and that's just the stuff that goes BANG!), my house is about 50 yards off the road and I have 250 pounds of dogs- including about 100 pounds of very nosy American Bulldog and another one that will bark at rain drops or leaves falling from a tree because they are falling into his yard- out in the yard to tell me if someone's coming up. I feel that I'm safe enough inside my house because I figure that I will end up getting more than enough notice to cover the few feet to something that smokes or at least has a pointy tip if it becomes necessary.
The way I handle it is simple. When I leave the house- whether it's to go to the mailbox, cut grass, or to leave the property- I'm armed. When I come back into the house, it normally stays on me until I take a shower or go to bed. I can't tell you the number of times I've fell asleep on the couch watching TV with my Para P.13 or my Rossi 720 on me.
