Scared myself today - thought I had a ND for a moment
How did I do that? Well, if you knew me . . .
I can joke about it now, because after a few moments, I realized there was nothing dangerous going on - of course, my heart was still racing. I wasn't going to post this here, but I thought you all might as well have a laugh tonight.
I just got home from picking up dinner. When I'm driving, my weapon is in a Remora holster in the sidepocket on the door. I pulled into my garage, parked, got out of my car and shifted everything to my left hand. That leaves my right hand free to pick up my weapon. As soon as the webbing between my thumb and forefinger touch the back of the gun - finger extended straight out, the loudest noise I've heard in a long time rings out in the closed garage, along with a bright light.
For a split second I think, My God! ND! What have I done! Then the sounds goes off AGAIN! That's when I realize what else I have in my other hand.
I HATE car alarms on a key fob.
