    though it was early for her to be arriving home, it is so easy to check it out--

    call her on from your cell and when you hear her phone ring/ being answered from the living room---
    no need to stress or be walking about with a loaded gun.

    so you did fine in that no one was injured, you did not have a plan in play for communicating with her and
    this is what you learned from the event.

    and yet another good reason for not having a flash attached to the gun--
    you never want to point the gun at something you do not intend to shoot;
    like your wife and children.

    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

    Yeah only me and my wife. I am cautious all the time especially when a door is opening. My pitty lets me know when someone arrives.

    Disagree it happens more than we realize. Both leaving and arriving from work. I have seen this occur even with women coming home on a lunch break.

    I would have called out a name or asked something...wouldn't want to have shot the wife.

    Okay, After having most of the day to think on this topic and talk with my wife. We found that we both made mistakes.

    1) We are suppose to let the other know when we are going to later or earlier then Normal times.
    - This was not don't - Wife admitted to forgetting to call as she is almost never out early (first time in one and a half years)

    2) I didn't think to call her cell phone at all. --- My Big mistake --- Yes I F'ed up....

    But on the good side She liked how I did the check of the down stairs. When I came down I shined the flashlight in the kitchen and moved in the the dinning room. in an attempt to get behind any one that had come in.

    As for it being one of the kids getting up we have a alarm on their door's from when we first moved in due to the new 2 level apartment. that I still turn on at tuck-in and off when I get home.

    Thank you for all the reply's. I found Most of the info very helpful as I am always trying to learn and be the better person and make my plan's and reactions better and easier to follow.
