It was just the wind right??
felt a need to ask here and see if i did the right thing tonight.
So here is the set up... its about 10pm the wife is down stairs reading a book, with both dogs with her. Im upstairs working on her PC...:rant: that doesn't seem to want to play nice. when i hear my screen door open with a bit of a bang.. now it is wind here tonight but as i listen it kinda sounds like the door was open fast and pressure was place on the main door to our home. at this point both dogs are going off loud and before i can even clear my seat, my aussie is up the stairs in the door way barking at me with a look of its go time. I just make it clear of the doorway to the computer room before she is at the foot of the stairs barking at the door.
As i reach the first landing of the stairs i have the USP clear, safty off and hammer back and only at that point does my aussie stop barking and moves to 1/2 way between my wife and the door giving me clear room to the front door.
now no one in the house is moving or making a sound, all of us are listining and nothing....?? i walk the rest of the stair on stealth mode reaching the front door and switch on the front light outside... still not a sound... now all my red flags are up...
at this point i can see thru the blinds that doesn't appear anyone is at the front door but it doesnt' feel right so i ask as nice as i can (aka tell the wife) for my wife to go upstairs. the best part was her asking me in a low voice was where her gun was in the case we have. :danceban:
i wait still no more sounds... when i look up the stair way she is at the top with her .40 in hand giving me cover. i let her know im going to open the door and look around...i know i shouldn't do that but i did at first leave the chain on the door. with the door cracked open i see are screen door is open and no one in line of site.
I reclose the door and remove the chain and look outside ...:tumbleweed: not a soul to be seen. so i back up into the house relock the door and wait a few before i let her come down the stairs.
now im kinda unsure if it was just the wind or was someone checking house for an early xmas discount?? my wife said it sounded like someone opened the screen door and tried to open the main door. i do live in a nice area but some of my people around me aren't the best class of peopel (the townhome we share the front with i belive the young lady likes to walk the street....:tired:) and behind us we have a once a week episode of cops due to the fighting....
and please don't hold back if i did something wrong let me know..
