I am taking my CCW course Jan 8th for home security, and personal protection. I am also a private property owner who routinely shows "my" properties to potential renters.
Here in lies a recent scenario I encountered [minus any protection, other than the cell phone in my pocket]. On my way to my 9-5, I stopped by a vacant property to check the condition. I unlocked the front door noticed the last tenant left the living room a mess, continued into the kitchen its a mess, bathroom was decent, as I turned the corner to enter the master bedroom....in a split second I sensed movement, and instantly noticed a man in the bedroom. Needless to say I was SHOCKED, SCARED...you fill in the blank!!! that he was in "my" so-called vacant house, and shocked at our proximity [2 ft MAX]. As I yelled a few choice words.. I began to backout of the house...
So I guess I have several questions for my fellow brothers/sister of DC:
1) Assuming your armed what would you have done?
2) How would you enter vacant properties?
3) Last, the a typical question...I am considering purchasing a S&W M&P 9, or 9C? FYI, my 9-5 is business professional. Any thoughts?
