    It's GO Time...

    You're laying in bed just about to fall asleep and hear that dreaded sound of glass breaking or that big thump shaking the house. You're in bed with only your skivvies on, what do you do first and foremost? Do you get caught with your pants down, or take a few seconds to dress?

    Been there done that. I was worried about the family seeing me in my skivvies roaming around the house and being embarrassed. After all, you can't change first impressions?

    So, in your bump in the night scenario, are you going to get some cloths on first?
    I think, therefore I am...

    Just grab the 1911 and go. Besides seeing me naked would send anyone out the door.

    I'm not concerned with my appearance in a situation like that. I sleep au naturel, and if you break in, what you see is what you get... angry naked dude with a .45 or heavier artillery.

    Skivvies won't save the kids.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Any intruder in my home will probably sail into cosmos with a most regrettable memory of a naked old man and this barrel flash...I'm just sayin'...

    Ill rock out with my unmentionables out...... I live alone so any such noise automatically means unwanted visitor. Nothing worse than seeing a naked sasquatch with a Glock

    One of the few things more frightening than seeing a man (me) with a shotgun slung on his shoulder and a 1911 in his hands pointed at you (the dirty criminal), in my opinion, would be a naked man with a shotgun slung on his shoulder and a 1911 in his hands pointed at you.

    I sleep in sweats or gym shorts boots fire house style by the bed and gun in arms reach. I can be in boots with weapon of choice in hand by the time I stand up. Weapon only without getting up.
