Just wanted to let everyone know what happened to me this morning in that others may learn. I woke up this morning at 5:30 hearing the door close. (It really didn't, just my imagination I guess) And I thought there was someone in the house. All the guns were still in the living room ready to be cleaned from the days trip to the range. The only one I had access to was my SKS which lives behind a bunch of clothes in the closet and the mags are in a noisy cabnet. I decided to go to the living room anyway and stepped right into some cardboard boxes that were in the hall from unpacking, lots of noise. Make it to the living room, the 357 isn't loaded, neither is anything else. Load the 357 from a strip holder that I found in the dark and proceed to make sure no one is in the house. Talk about learning a lesson. Just glad I had this happen when not in the real situation of a break-in. What have I learned- 1. Clean all weapons after a range trip and put them back in their original accessable place. Don't put off til the next day. 2.Keep paths through the house clear of obstructions. 3.Have a plan to check the house similar to a fire drill. This may seem a little extreme but it think its something wise to practice. No forgotten rooms or closets etc. This certainly opened my eyes, learn from my stupidity everyone!

No little kids in the house, huh? Good points to think thru, though. DrMark [IMG]http://zapper.invasionworks.com/smilies/allied-sniper-kill.gif[/IMG]

Do things the same ALWAYS. Have one weapon ready on the nightstand. THE SAME WEAPON ALWAYS. Keep the weapon in the same condition ALWAYS. Wether it is cocked and locked, empty with a magazine handy whatever as long as it is always there. I am a medium heavy sleeper but I can grab my glasses and pistol in the dark out of a dead sleep and be on my feet in about three seconds. My glasses go in the same place every night and the pistol is checked for round in the chamber, safety off (double action) and set to the place my hand lands when I reach. Just my arrangement. Planerench out.

Nope no Kids, New policy tho is getting put into use in the house that is exactly like Planerench does. Everything is going back into it's own place ALWAYS.

I still like Ayoob's idea of keeping a large fully clawed house cat. First sign of an intruder obtain cat in one hand and flashlight in other. Search house and upon finding intruder toss cat on same. Mr. Cat instinctively climbs to top of landing spot and hangs on for dear life. [}:D]
