    Hypothetical: house on fire and you can only grab 3 things....

    Hi Everybody!

    I was just wondering if your dwelling (house / apartment / houseboat) was on fire and you could only grab 3 things, what would you grab to save?

    Now: I'm gonna automatically assume that loved ones and pets are OK, and also of the 3 things, ONLY 1 can be a weapon. (handgun / rifle / knife.)

    My list might not be original, but I'm hoping some of you might have unique items according to your personality. (stamps or books, anyone?)

    1. my Bible
    2. my laptop
    3. my XD-9sc

    Forgive me if this has been posted before....

    Let's see, I'd grab my Kimber Ultra, my Glock-36, and my AR-15...and then I'd ask my wife to throw the rest of my guns out of the back window...

    Anyone else in my house. Me. And if time allows, the bugout bag, which is enough to keep me safe and functional even though the house is burned to the ground.

    Since the girlfriend and the dogs are safe, I'd probably take:

    1. My work laptop (Good lord, it would take months to redo all the work)
    2. My home laptop (All my pictures are digital)
    3. My Glock 27
    Gun Control means never having to say "I missed you."

    - Glock 27 (.40)
    - Kel-Tec p3at (.380)
    - Beretta 96FS (.40)
    - Smith & Wesson 5906 (9mm)
