sKerry protestors have lit your house on fire and unluckily you haven't checked the batteries in your fire detector for a while. The smoke awakes you and you only have a few minutes to grab what you can. Your wife, kids, and animals are staying at the grandparent’s house, so there is no need to worry about them, what do you take?

Jerad


EDIT: There is no way for you to put the fire out, if you try you will be wasting the time you have to grab your shit and get out.

Fireproof safes are akin to bulletproof vests.

Important papers, pics, carkeys,

...Well, important documents.

And my toys, with enough ammunition to dispatch the Kerry-supporters that DIDN'T manage to lit THEMSELVES on fire.

cant forget to throw all the 17,000 rounds of ammo out of my closet OUCH BAng BANg all night with that fire

x2 on the fire extuingisher! Hell, I have 2 in the house.
But, assuming they fail for some reaosn (because you'd make them) I'd grab my AD&D books, Remmy 1187 and Winchester .22lr. Then on the way by the door, my car keys, hat and waller.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 3:41:51 PM EST
my 2 high-pressure garden hoses and put it out. 3 fire alarms in the house. anything short of accelerated arson, I can handle.


But in the spirit of the question - my go-bag out the bedroom window, wallet, photo albums, removeable harddrives, in that order as time allows.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 3:43:05 PM EST
Roll the gun safe out the garage, then grab my camera case (which has in its pockets DVDs with all my digital pictures on them) and as many of my photo albums as I can save.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 3:46:50 PM EST
My pistol in the nightstand and my Computer. Too much stuff on it just to let it burn. The rest of my guns are in a fireproof safe. Oh yea my dog.


I would hate to see if the fire got that close to my gunsafe because all my reloading supplies are about 6 feet away. That would make a hell of a flame.

A bottle of Jack Daniels. If I gotta watch it burn, I prefer to be drunk.

Grab my nuts and run!

Screw it all, I'm insured to the hilt!

After the family, not one freakin thing...just get the hell out. These are all items and reasons folks have run around inside a burning house trying to grab "those important things" and succumbed to smoke and gases, never to emerge. None of it is worth a damn if you're not around.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 3:56:04 PM EST
Pictures and important papers.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 4:05:51 PM EST
I'd grab the wife. Don't think I could find another one that would put up with me.

important documents, cash, my handguns.

Nothing.

My 1911 off the nightstand, some pants and the Carhartt jacket off the floor, which has all my day-to-day crap in the pockets.

my family and my dog. Once outside start beating the F*CK out of those who started it.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 4:11:59 PM EST
My CPU (my whole life and job are on there), my AR (because I can't replace it in this state) and throw a couple of pairs of jeans out the window quickly. Everything else is just stuff.

When the furnace blew out in mine, it was pants, shoes (boots that I actually never wore much), and jacket. I challenge anyone to do much better

+1 Just grab your family and GTFO...your really important papers and such should be in a fire-resistant safe or better yet, in a safe deposit box at the bank. Insurance will take care of the rest...
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 6:07:21 PM EST
Computer tower, papers, guns if time allows.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 6:18:42 PM EST
G/f ,kids and get the fuck out, seen too many poeple thet tried to salvage propety while the house is burning, alot of them didnt make it back out , get the hell out and stay out, unless someone is still inside. Smoke will fuck you up big time and you lose it and then your bbq
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 6:23:10 PM EST
If possible, the keys to my truck....fk the rest. As long as I got that, and my wallet, I will be fine.
There are a lot of things I would miss....but nothing worth dying to save

Wife and kids. Oh yeah, and Lila.

I'd throw my wallet, cell phone, bedside pistol (it'd only take a second, I might as well save it), and photo albums in a laundry basket and chuck them out the front door or a window, then I'd get my car out of the garage. Then call the FD with my cell phone from outside and get a garden hose and try to fight the fire from outside until they arrive -- or if the bad dudes are still there, that's why I saved my pistol.

I'd grab a bag of chips, and a lawnchair. Then run down to the end of the street, sit down and enjoy seeing the skerry protesters become ingulfed in the mushroom cloud, when the fire reached my reloading room. Man, it would suck to be them.
