Every night, before I go to bed, (I am usually the last one), I look out at least one window on each side of the house. In warmer weather, I actually go outside and walk around the house, armed. Check the cars. Check the kids. Make sure all is well, then unlock the cabinet before I turn in. Anyone else have a similar routine?

Nope. I just goto bed. I dont even lock the doors. Gotta love living in the country.

I usually take a shower and close my bedroom door and lock it. In my apartment, my room has a window next to the front door, its a weird setup. So I keep a loaded handgun under the pillow. I usually rechamber a round and decock it before sleeping.

I look out the front window at the parking lot before I go to bed.

I just make sure the doors are locked. I also keep the door to my room locked. Guns are inside with me.

I think our doors have been locked 10 times in 26 years. Before I added the window A/C units, we would leave all the windows and doors open all day and night to keep a breeze coming through.

I do it occasionally, but not before I go to bed, since bedtime is about 0700. Since I'm up all night, during the course of the night, I slip out a door and quietly walk the perimeter, just to see what is going on. I have done this since several monthslast month (I thought it had been longer than that) ago, my neighbors caught a kid trying to get into my house with my wife at home.

Oh yeah, I live out in the country, but that didn't stop that little shit from trying to get into my home.

I arm the Claymores and foogass, then unleash the cybernetic hounds to patrol the perimiter for me. They have this strange programming error in them though, that makes them think every woman is Sarah Connor. I am still single to this day.

Baiting is illegal around here. Especially when using white women, cadillacs and Ripple wine.

I check the windows and doors, and make sure they are locked up.

I'll get up and check what's up if the dogs start going off.

I actually did foil a robbery attempt at my neighbors house
once by calling the cops on some kids that were skulking around over
there. (rural setting, neighbor's house about 100 Meters away from mine.

I don't like my neighbors, but, it's the principal of the thing.

I can hear the hadjis up in my attic, I think they are building a nuke up there. What should I do?

They watch me through pinholes. Will those pesticide bombs for home fumigation work?

Only if you use them in combination with a road flare.

You should consider putting a chair under the doorknob.

An expert burglar using proper tools could silently pick the lock and open your door silently.

Also, if a raging maniac attempts to kick your door down, the chair will provide at least an extra 5 seconds for your reaction time.

Nothing wrong with checking your surroundings out before going to bed. Thing is, a person can go for decades without an incident so they get lax with security. Then something happens.

My brother (former Marine) didn’t even keep a loaded firearm handy. He just didn’t figure he needed it in his safe, out of the way, neighborhood. Then someone tried to break in. He’s not even sure exactly when it happened but someone tried to force a door open which was blocked by heavy filing cabinets on the other side. And he found pry marks on several windows, including the window of the kid’s room (age 3 and 2). You can bet he’s armed now and taking a lot more security precautions. I don’t know if he’s doing a nightly patrol of the property like JarheadPatriot is. But I sure wouldn’t blame him if he did.

Perhaps going outside before bed and looking for anything unusual won’t really help much. But if it makes someone sleep better then go for it. If nothing else it’s a constant reminder that there are rare but very real dangers out there.

I'm not trying to play "Rambo", ya nut.......I'm just checking on my property to see if there is anything suspicious or out of place. You never know when an Alien might try to steal my kids bike or my dog. Not to mention, the Black Helicopters watching my pumpkins growing.....

I check the doors to make sure there locked. I have a German Shepherd in the house with me so I dont have to worry about what comes in the house. I will wake up and my Dogs will bark/attack if anyone brakes in... I sleep light.

I always do a perimeter check before I go to bed. I'm usually in my pj's, 1911 in hand. Check the kids, check the doors are locked, appliances are off, look out the windows. I'm surveying my domain, and making sure all is secure. If I don't do it, my wife tells me to. Last thing I do is put the 1911 in the electronic lockbox beside my bed. I used to leave it out, but my 3-yr-old daughter is like a ninja; I can't tell you the number of times I have awakened with her standing at the bedside looking at me. Normally a mouse fart wakes me up, but she can sneak up on me for some reason.

No need to walk the perimeter. Doors are always locked. Windows are always locked. Lights out front have motion sensors. I have a big dog out back. Alarm system beeps when doors open.

Wife sleeps with her browning high power in the drawer on her side of the bed. 12 gauge marine magnum is proped against the wall right beside my side of the bed. We are both light sleepers and are regular shooters.

what is the nsn for that version of the wife? I have been asking the army for one for a while now and still haven't found one. I want the light sleep and wife toting high power. well maybe a kimber but high power will work for starters.
