    Question Anybody Else See A Potential Problem Having One Of These??

    This clever alarm clock is a fun new way to get yourself alert and out of bed every morning. When the buzzer goes off, you won't find any snooze button to hit. Instead, reach for the handgun-shaped remote and nail the digital target to turn it off. You'll be focused, energized and ready to take on the day instead of crawling back under the sheets for an other fifteen minutes. It's playful, it's practical and after all the extra morning time you'll have on your hands, you'll be glad to have ordered one for yourself.

    Sooo ... training to grab/squeeze a gun while groggy, at the moment one awakes? Hm. Fun, perhaps, but I'd wonder what I would be training myself to do, when the 3am false-alarm (or intrusion) occurs.

    I would NOT own one! I can forsee numerous scenarios--all leading to a massive FAIL! And the subsequent bad press! "Sorry officer, I thought I had grabbed the remote and grabbed my Glock instead! I didn't mean to shoot the clock, wake up the neighbors, and have them call 911!" And that is probably the least bad thing that could happen!

    I have a fantasy that I will share with all y'all


    The first night after I retire or win the lotto (which ever comes first) I set my alarm and place a hammer beside it on the night stand. The next morning the alarm goes off and I pick up the hammer and smash that sucker into teeny tiny pieces........

    Train as you'd fight, so you'll fight as you train.

    I can see it now: "BANNGG! Oh, sorry dear. I meant to hit the 'snooze' button instead."

    I'd prefer this one... Although mine wouldn't last long because it'd probably get chucked across the room when I got frustrated and/or irritated with it.

    The "first day" that I didn't have to go to work after I retired...... between 20-30 people I know all called me early in the morning ..... to tell me " they thought I ought to get my rear out of bed". ...... I hated every single one of them that morning. I swore, to get even . I have ..... one by one...... calling them at noon while they are at work and telling them.... " I slept late today and just got up .... going fishing later, but thought I would give you a call and see how you were doing ". One long time friend, I called ... and asked them , "you know what ... I got up this morning ... and you wouldn't believe what I decided to do today ...... NOTHING .... I decided to just 'relax' today" ... "how's it going for you " .

    All those fancy alarm clocks for people who don't have the self discipline to just get up when the alarm goes off. What has the world come to?

    My husband, now retired, gets up about 11 am lol. He stays up all night and watches tv. I yelled up the stairs " HEYYYYYYYYY LAZY, are you going to get up?" He yelled down, " HEYYYYYYYYYYY PERSON WHO DIDN'T HAVE TO GET UP AT 4 AM I am catching up on 35 years of sleep. "

    Did I get up at 4 am with him you might ask. Are you OUT OF YOUR MIND. I am chipper in the morning. I am a morning person. If I get up I am going to chat, I am going to talk. He didn't want to be talked to so I wasn't getting up until the kids got up at 6 lol.

    I like the gun clock lol

    I'm a morning person so I will refrain from judgement.

    Serve my country, swear an oath to protect it, pay my taxes, fly old glory in the front yard, love and protect my family, honor the vets before me and help fellow americans in need.
    By definition my country now calls me a radical
