wow, a back up cell phone eh? That's communications overload right there. I mean, how many people are you planning to need to talk to. If you can't get it done with one phone I don't see how more would help. Think of all the people you're going to be endangering if you use your 2 cell phones willy nilly

Well it looks like you are in good company here.
Glad everything turned out ok.

Let me just say, What a cool forum that a bunch of people can feel open enough to admit mistakes.
Thanks for the stories and for being honest.

Well, it appears a lot if us have a story! Last week I had been to the range, shooting my Full Size M&P. I was replacing my defensive ammo, and shooting off the old JHPs. I took all of the old ammo from my M&P Compact as well. Next day, holstered the Compact, and carried it all day. That night, I thought it felt strange when I undressed. Sure enough, I had failed to reload the magazine in the gun. Zippo, nada. Not even one in the pipe. I was carrying a really nice club all day thinking I was properly armed!

Hey, that's mine! Although, as such time has passed, I do not really remember which hotel, city, or in fact the brand or serial number. But I'm pretty sure the barrel was round, with a front sight. Please have him contact me for shipping instructions.

lost, but found x 2
OK, to make up for my less than polite first post here, I will dedicate my second post to revealing the TWO times I have misplaced a gun. First time was on the coal hills in Pennsylvania while in a dune buggy. We had been on the coal hills for about an hour. When we got out to take a break, I felt for the gun and realized it was gone. What a feeling to know I had to look for a gun-metal 1911 on a bunch of coal hills. Luckily, it only took about 10 minutes of back-tracking to spot it. The second time was two years later at the same area, but this time I used a fanny pack to carry my USP. I figured it would stay clean and not be able to fall out. Well, I placed the bag on the rear tire while I buckled my wife in her seat, (this was on our fifth anniversary, what a woman!) walked around the front of the buggy, got in and drove away. It took me about 20 minutes to realize that I had no gun. Went back to camp and found the bag with a tire mark on it. The only damage was one side of the mag release had broken off, which was replaced for free. The only other problem was a FTE the first time I fired it after the incident. It is indeed very scary to think you may have lost a gun. Hopefully, never again.

Don't bother looking at my first post. Certain words have been edited by a friendly and understanding mod.

I will not name the agency but a local Police dept left a training session and were B.S.ing the parking lot for a while and drove off leaving an M-16 and all the gear in a Tach bag.My buddy the range owner picked it up and secured it and waited.4 days pass not a word so he calls the officer and plays with him a bit and tells him come get your stuff rookie.Well its not a secret now but....fun to get his goat anytime we see him.we always say"got everything _______ !" and give him the wink.

I've done it a couple of times. My holsters are so comfortable that I forget I have a gun on during the normal course of events. So in a hurry, like you, I have left with the gun at home and only realized it when I went to take the gun off.
