2 men at door - asking whether I had kids..
Wife says two men just pulled into our country driveway - walking to door. One stays on lawn with clipboard looking at house acting like taking notes, the other comes onto the porch to the front door clipboard and paperwork in hand.
I open door and step onto porch to greet but instantly become uneasy. I went from sitting-at-my-pc getting tech support from dell, to full-alert as the guy begin asking whether I had kids and whether the neighbors had children. He was Asian and his partner was middle-eastern - big deal - but this was very weird and I realized I was way too close to the guy on the porch (and what was the partner doing taking notes.. )
I carry a G27 w M-Tac holster - almost can forget its there. I am new to Glocks but love this G27 - but must admit I have been carrying without a round chambered until I got more comfortable with its safety features. I was instantly regretting the whole scenario.
I was within arms reach of this guy, outside my door, G27 handy but 'safely' unchambered (aka useless), delayed adrenaline kicking in.
I finally figured out they were selling books and were hunting for houses with kids. I gave a not so Minnesota nice 'NOT interested' and 'why would I tell you who has kids in the neighborhood?'. Guy sarcastically responds 'oh - thats real nice..' and turns, walks to car with his buddy and leaves.
Was the recommended best-practice for answering door-to-door salesmen ? (Assuming its not the Schwan guy or boyscouts :embarassed::-))
