    I just scared the crap out of some poor kid!

    I just got back from the range, and when I got home I unloaded my car. I was juggling multiple gun cases. As I was approaching the vestibule to my apartment I ran into a neighbor. Normally this would be no big deal, as most of my neighbors are very cool. But this one guy is the “gang banger” type who frequently has “undesirables” over his place. He obviously saw what I was carrying, and this made me nervous. I don’t like people knowing my business.

    Suddenly I heard a loud bang on my door. I figured it was one of these but holes, so I answered the door with my sidearm in my hand (in hindsight it was a bad idea ). It turned out to be a paperboy wanting me to subscribe. When he saw the gun he about pooped his pants. I felt so bad that I subscribed to the paper!

    While it is not against the law to do that just think if the paperboy told the police that you were waving it around! Next time I would be sure to keep it behind your back so people do not get the wrong idea, just my .02

    Actual the community I live in is pretty conservative, very gun friendly. And the local press reflects that!

    Besides I really enjoy reading the paper over a cup of hot Joe on a Saturday morning.

    Do you think your chances of a home robbery just increased since this neighbor or his cronies might like to get their hands on your guns? How secure are your guns when you aren't home? No need to answer here--just something to think about. If I didn't feel secure leaving my guns at home, I might take them with me. It'd be a shame to lose them to some lowlife burglar.

    To explain my current living situation requires a lengthy story.

    I will just say this: my guns are not secure as I would like them to be, secure enough to keep the kid from getting hurt, but a burglar get run off with them if he/she wanted.

    And yes, these creeps DO make me nervous!

    If I do answer my door ( that's IF ) , I make sure the gun is not in sight. But it's there.

    Hey hindsight is always better...but given the circumstances...what IF it was your 'neighbors' and a few of his friends looking for some early xmas presents...
    I guess a peephole is in order...
    Merry Christmas and glad you are safe.
    and keeping up on local news isn't soooo bad.

    Live and learn. Next time you'll do better. You've given me a little something to think about.

    I have heard this before and sometimes when I am not wearing my sidearm I also answer the door with gun in hand (out of sight.) I always wonder what to do if your gun is in your hand, you open the door, and there stands an LEO wanting to ask a few questions. "Excuse me while I put my gun down" is what I would say. However, I would not be surprised if I found myself face down with a knee on my neck.

    I had two LEO's at my house today. When I saw their cars out front, and them walking up, I decided it was best to disarm before answering the door. Soem one in the area shot a BB gun at a school bus yesterday. They wanted to know if I had seen any thing.

    I'd have to look for new digs if I had gang bangers for neighbors and a fear of thieves every time I left home. Especially if I had a kid to worry about!
