    Man Busts into Boise Home

    BOISE - Police are trying to find the man they say busted in to a Boise home and demanded pills.

    Officers say a man wearing a ski mask broke in to the home on North Highwood in the area of Fairview Avenue and Cloverdale Road just after 8 a.m. Monday.

    An elderly man and his eight-year-old grandchild were in the home at the time of the robbery, according to police.

    The suspect then demanded the man turn over his wife's back pain pills.




    The prescription for this clown is a tube full of Gold Dot 200gr


    Again, it begs the questions,
    1. Do you or do you not have a weapon in seconds reach, even at home, at all times." In this case, assume that you have an 8 year old child in the home with you that may not have had any training in firearms safety.

    2. How do you arm yourself.

    3. Where do you keep it?

    Do you or do you not have a weapon in seconds reach,
    My carry piece is on me - all the time. Even if I had a child of that age mentioned or younger - same - it is on me.

    That is the only way to keep the gun secure and, NOT need valuable seconds to ''go fetch''.

    My weapon is where it should be on my hip with a scattergun close by.

    Some people keep what equates to a small fortune on the street woth of medicine in their houses. There is a thriving market around colleges (and I am sure other places too) for a variety of pills (Xanax, Vicodin, and Ritallin are some of the bigger names) that people want to abuse.

    My gun is always on my hip, except when I sleep... even then I sometimes fall asleep while I'm wearing it. Otherwise it's right under my pillow.
    When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.

    I always have my pistol within arms reach. It spends the day on my hip and the night on my nightstand. If I had an 8-year old, the only thing that would change is it would probably spend the night in a fast opening safe, rather than sitting out. During the day I'd figure it's safer in my possession than it would be locked up.

    I carry a 9mm auto in a holster over my apendix. Things have changed and when not carring the gun is under my pillow. My kid is grown and this poses no problem.

    My Kimber Ultra or my Glock - 36 are either on my hip, SOB, or like right now (sitting at my computer) my Kimber is next to my keyboard...(no belt)...

    Around the house I carry a Kahr MK9. Otherwise I generally carry a S&W .45 acp Semi Auto 4516-2 Special Model Pistol. I'm armed as I'm typing this.

    I heard this call on my scanner this morning. I was working on my house, and decided to adjust my toolbelt so I could wear my gun AND my toolbelt!

    Yes, you have weapon within seconds reach. Now as far as the child with no firearms training. Most of the time, because my husband and I have no children yet, there are no kids in our home and guns are very easily accessible. Now, if/when we have ANYONE over (young or old) who has limited experience with weapons, everything gets unloaded, locked and put high on a shelf in a closet or locked in another room. The only two guns left out are kept on our person at all times.

    When it comes to bed time, the visitor or child should not be in your bedroom, and your gun should be close, ours are usually very close.
    2. How do you arm yourself.
    Regular carry.. Shoulder holsters are pretty comfortable for lounging around. They don't dig into your hip or kidney when you sit down and they can be concealed and comfy for watching a movie or playing a card game or something.

    3. Where do you keep it?
    On your person as long as you can, off your person when necessary but within arms reach. ON the night side stand (not in it) for sleep or under the pillow.
