    Holy Toledo batman

    I just got done inventorying my gun safes. Its something I do every so often to make sure everything is where it is supposed to be and there is no problems that need to be addressed.

    I have three safes at home, one is for collector guns, the second is for guns I use and shoot regularly and the other is for overflow and ammo. I have others "offsite" for some high dollar rare items. Sometimes, guns will get moved from their normal storage spots for whatever reason. I log this on a spreadsheet I have to keep track of whats what and where it is.

    So anyway, the only safe that is opened on a regular basis is the small long gun safe that I keep my shooters in. My son loves to help me inspect them, so thats what we are doing this rainy afternoon. After we are through putting everything back in its place, he says "Dad, where that black machine gun that goes here?" ( He's little... everything that is not wood stocked is a machine gun) Pointing to the fourth slot.

    Crap! My Rock River Elite is missing! I about blew a gasket. Check my inventory... yup, its supposed to be in there. What the heck... I'm meticulous about how my guns are stored. Brain storm... what did I do with it? Did I leave it at the range last time I was out there? No, somebody would have called. Its a private range, nobody would steal from me... would they? Crap... did somebody get into my safe? Why didn't they take the rest? The AR is on the lower end of values in here... Maybe they just wanted an AR. Nah.. it was still locked. You need a combo to lock and unlock this safe. Nobody got in here. Did I leave it on the bench in the workshop? Nah, I would have known it was there. I have been working on several other projects all summer. Maybe I left in the rack in my gun closet... yeah, thats where it has to be. Nope. The rack is empty except my Hawken I've been tinkering with.

    Crap crap crapola. How could I be so careless?

    What a minute. I was going to buy a new one last month, but never did. Wait... did I... Yup. I did. I moved it over to my other safe to make room for my new purchase that I never made. Whew.


    That was about ten minutes of pure panic all because I didn't follow my own rules.

    While I don't have the inventory issues that you do, I did just go over my sheet and re-access the cost to replace what I have and added the last couple new acquisitions to up my insurance policy. I did have a brief WTH moment when I couldn't find two of my Colt .380s, but they turned out to be in a case I thought to be empty and sitting on the self with the other gun cases. I think I need to stick to what belongs where, I just need another long gun safe for the house.

    Oh man. I know that feeling. I once put my LCP in the document drawer of our safe while on the phone with my wife (it doesn't go there - I have no idea why I did it, other than that I was distracted). When I went to retrieve it, the slot that it's supposed to be in, was empty. I thought I was gonna puke. I've never felt such panic/shame. 'Kinda funny that your son noticed first ;-)

    Man, do I hate that feeling. It's like a sinking in the pit of your gut, the worst for sure!

    For an obsessive compulsive it's a real nightmare, know it well. Glad it worked out & all is good.

    Sounds like ya got too many guns there Six. If a Rock River M-4 is on the low end, I can help you get rid of some of your "low end" firearms, I know a good home for them in Ohio. Actually I think I need to put a halt to buying long guns until I get out and move into m own place. If I put another safe in the place they are at now, some of the powers that be wouldn't be too happy with me. At least your kid has a good eye and memory for that stuff.
