Situation with Neighbors House
Here is the situation that happened to me on Saturday night and you critique it.
I go to pick up some food for my wife and on the way there I notice that my neighbor's (and very good friends that are in Mexico for the week) door is halfway open and the light in their house is on. Keep in mind they have 3 boys (14, 11 9 yrs. old) that are still in town staying with various other people. I think if it is still that way on my way back I will do something and it is, so when I get home I grab my gun (I had 2 choices my G23 or my Kahr MK9 and I chose the Glock) and my flashlight and tell my 19 yr. old son to go with me for a witness in case something happens. Halfway there I realize that neither of us had our cell phones on us but we continue on. I walk down to the house and I get to the door and poke my head inside and yell "hello" numerous times and get nothing except the noise of the 185 pound mastiff in the upstairs bedroom that the kids are letting out every day. I go into the house and check all the downstairs doors and windows and a couple of minutes go by and I realize that the kids probably just left the door open by mistake. The next thing that pops into my mind is what happens if someone saw me walk into this house and has decided to call the police and they show up. You have a person that has applied for a CCW (paperwork is at the Sheriffs) but is currently carrying illegally a gun in a house that does not belong to them with the homeowners in a foreign country.
We are good friends with the neighbors and the 14 year old is on my baseball team but I could not get ahold of him and I did not try the parents.
The whole time that I was in the house I had the gun in my hand in my hoodie but never brandished it in the house because of all of the windows.
I have always wondered what gun I would choose if a situation like this came up and I chose the .40 cal Glock because of the 14 rounds vs. 7 for the 9mm MK9.
What would you do different and what did I do wrong. I am a big boy so bring on the criticism!
