I was laying down not expecting anyone to come over here. I thought I heard my front door open so I go look & didn't see anyone then I ask real loud if anyone is here but none answers. So I walk down stares & then I clearly hear someone walking around my kitchen. So I grab my steyr & go look. Still I don't see anyone so I start turning the lights on. I go outside to see if anyone else's car is in my driveway but there isn't. I'm thinking oh great just great someones in here. I start heading towards my bathroom halway to turn that light on with my gun half raised just then the fucking moron jumps outa the dark and yells "booga booga" a foot away from my face. I came so god damn close to shooting him just now. That was real fucking smart of him to do some shit like that. He's just lucky I have good trigger control the dumbass.

So then I go way to get yourself shot dumbass & he looks at the gun in my hand and says "oh that's great walk around your house with a loaded gun" So I'm like wtf am I supposed to do when I clearly hear someone in my house & there's no other car outside and none answers when I ask if someone's there.

My brother knows to knock on the door a billion times and just wait, rather than barge in. This, despite the fact that he has a key.

You didn't almost shoot him if you properly identified your target.

Some people just beg to be pistol whipped. Was he adopted? From liberals?
Link Posted: 10/31/2005 5:34:34 PM EDT
Family reunions must be fun.

That said, even on Halloween, he should've known better. I mean if he knocked on the door and scared you when you opened it - ok, fine.

But your brother actually thought, "Hey, I want to scare my bro! So I'll BREAK INTO HIS HOME AND SCARE HIM! Yeah! That sounds good!"?

I agree

My parents know that if they're coming to visit and I'm home when they get here, they must still ring the doorbell and wait for me to let them in, even though they're the only other people in the country with a key.

They also know to not be suprised if I have a 1911 (or a 590A1 at night) close at hand if they dont call ahead. They usually ring when they're 3-4 miles away.

My landlord (also my aunt) came by to leave something for my cousin one day, I said "HELLO" 3 times, with no response, but I knew someone was there. Freaked her out when she saw me holding my glock like that. She always makes her presence known when she comes by now.

You need a steel trap to sit on the floor inside the door, when it chomps the shit out of his foot, he will announce himself with a loud piercing scream. Then you can regale the family with tales of hijinks at Thanksgiving. Now go have fun with your kin folks,,,,,,,,

Hmmm, except that 12ga rubber buckshot at arms length like he had would have done more that STUNG...it would likely have killed his brother as well as any lead bullet.

I commend him on his control and restraint. ANYONE stupid enough to play a game like that is asking for a Darwin award. I can't imagine that his brother didn't know he had guns..... I know of no one in my family that would pull a stunt like that... the family that have kets to my house will let themselves in if no answer and will be calling out as they walk in...wondering why I didn't get the door.

No Expert

EVERY person that I've lived with or stays at my house has received "the talk". Meaning that they have been told to NEVER barge in, NEVER try to pull a surprise, NEVER come in unanounced and NEVER, NEVER try to surprise me.

I've told them all that I will shoot them. To this day, when my brother stays with me for the holidays, he walks around the house saying his name. One time he was staying in my basement and he phoned my cell-phone to tell me he was coming up to my bedroom late at night to get some NyQuill

My partner and I were searching a house once for a young man wanted on a warrant. We are clearing the upstairs bedroom and my partner opens the closet door, when this fool jumps up and yells "BOO!" The next sound he made was "URK!" as my partner stuck the muzzle of his gun into the idiot's windpipe.

My partner definitely has more trigger discipline than me; I know I would have put two rounds in his brain-pan.
Link Posted: 10/31/2005 8:08:44 PM EDT
I work odd hours, and anytime I come home at an unexpected time I call home before I walk in. It gives Jody time to clear out, and also my wife knows not to shoot me.

I have been with other people who have heard me on the phone, "Babe, I'll be home in 10 minutes, don't shoot." They laugh and think I'm kidding. I glare at them and say, "She'll shoot me in a heartbeat."

My Dad has a key to my apartment. Whenever he comes over he knocks, opens the door and announces himself in a somewhat loud voice and slowly enters. He came up with this procedure all on his own.

The guys on patrol could be anywhere, and per Murphy's law, there's never a cop around when you need one.



Hope you don't kill anyone you love next time!

No he didn't almost pay with his life because I didn't have my door locked . He almost paid with his life because he jumps out of a dark hallway yelling booga booga. Next time? What next time? None else in my family would be stupid enough to do some shit like that! You talk like I emptied a magazine into the darkness then went to see if I hit anyone.
Link Posted: 10/31/2005 8:48:46 PM EDT
I think there was enough blame to go around on this one, considering you didn't lock your door and all. But to be honest with you, my brother would not have left my house with less than a major ass kicking!!!
Dumb fuck should answer when you called out!!! I don't give a fuck if it is Holloween, that's a good way to get your ass shot. I hope your dumb ass brother understands that now.
And you need to learn to lock your door!!!!......Darwin awards indeed!!!...

My idiot neighbor decides he wants to play alarm clock for me a couple of years ago. It's about 3am (he knew I left for work at that time)and the power went out due to a thunderstorm/lightning, he bangs on the frame around the bedroom window. Since it was hot as hell I had it open about halfway, I'll never forget the look on his face when he realized the barrel of a Ruger GP100 .357 magnum was mere inches away from his dome.

Needless to say he's never played alarm clock again.

Stupid: Yes

Thoughtful: Yes. I should have neighbors that are considerate enough to make sure I get out the door to work on time if the power goes out and my alarm clock shuts off.

I was doing a search on the keyword 'brother' since I have an old thread with that in the title. I found this one and posted in it, and read several other interesting threads as well. It's amazing how much I miss on this site, even considering the amount of time I spend on it.

A few years ago, I was too drunk to drive, so I decided to stay at my mother's house. I called her, and she said "come on over" in a sleepy voice. I stumbled into her house at 3 AM, and her boyfriend came down the steps with a pistol drawn. Apparently, my mother never bothered to tell him that I was coming over.

He said that his finger was on the trigger and that he had started to squeeze, but he figured out that it was just me at the last possible split-second. He was pretty shaken, I was too drunk to care. My mother's house has been "cat burglarized" several times over the years, so he had every reason to believe that I was a burglar.

Even though it almost cost me my life, I was glad that someone was there to protect my mother in the event that it was a real burglar.
