The other day I received a new IWB holster. I was trying it out unloaded. Worked as advertised. I loaded up and was checking out how things looked in the mirror in our master bedroom. I had just drawn out of the holster intending to return my gun to its gunvault, when my wife called to me from the main floor of our house. ( Master is upstairs. Poor planning for when I grow old). Anyway for some reason I just laid my Glock 23 on the vanity counter and went to see what she needed. Both of my kids were asleep at this time. My 3 year old son in his room just down the hall, and my 5 year old son in my bed! He had snuck in around 4 am. As i reached the bottom of the stairs I realized I was wearing an empty holster and let me tell you I got the chills real bad. I raced upstairs retrieved gun and put in said new holster. Both of my boys know that they should get an adult if they ever see a firearm unattended, but I Am not gonna trust in that. I never thought I would be that negligent guy. It was only 20 seconds, but 1 second is too much IMHO. I am glad I could learn a lesson with only some holes put into my ego. Well flame away or not, but stay safe!
