    Red face First Time For Everything

    Maybe this thread belongs in the "Humor section under DUH" I've never been this old before (60 & counting) and the mind does some strange things.
    I have a son who is active on this forum, who I will not identify because when he reads this he'll thank me for keeping his identity "concealed". To his credit he never referred to me as "his old man" but I may now be called his "dumb ass father".
    Simply put, I usually carry my 642 in the pocket but today I decided to carry it OWB. So that means using the gun belt and taking the time to attach the holster.
    So I go out for about 4 hrs and get home to take the holster off and no gun! It was still in the draw w/the pocket holster!
    I've always been able to laugh at myself and I think the good lord knew what he was doing when he gave me that trait.
    Sometimes the apple does fall far from the tree! Good thing!

    Thanks Jframe. I'm 52. You've given me something to look forward to

    Have a Happy New Year.

    Hey, what are you complaining about? At least you left it someplace safe! On my old department we had at least two of our executive officers leave their gun belts hanging on the stall doors in public restrooms!
    Imagine how you would feel taking the off the belt with the empty holster and not finding it in the drawer!

    That's funny. When I've carefully positioned an IWB for maximum comfort and concealability, hit the road, and find it's empty on the way to town, I feel like going to the nearest university to join in the empty holster protest.

    Hey guys ... thanks for your funny replies. I'm sure there will be more.
    I just remembered that it's time to hit the sack. I have to start early because sometimes I don't remember where the BR is!

    Sounds like you need 2 j-frames. One for the pocket holster and one of the OWB.

    At least you'll never get out there with a single shot J frame!
    I returned to my home from a Christmas Combat Run (Christmas eve at wally world) and unholstered to find that there was no mag installed in my M9A1. I regularly store my carry gun, holstered, in a safe in my work shop. I also regularly pull a mag to check the fit of a mag carrier before I send it out to a customer. I , evidently, also regularly fail to re-insert said mag! There it was, sitting on my reloading bench! And I'm only 41!

    Well Thumper, you could always throw the bullets at the BG, would get them laughing so hard that you would have plenty of time to run for cover!!

    So far I have never left home with an empty holster, but I have left with an empty gun.

    The only sure cure for BNS...Blank Nogin Syndrome,is the purchase of more firearms to remind the individual....

    I have seen Le leave guns at home , or in the gunlocker at the jail , ect.. many times . Its really not uncommon so dont feel too bad lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
