What is it about turning 40?!?

I've had my CCW for six years, and never once "forgot" my pistol.

I turned forty on Tuesday, and twice this week I've arrived at my office, only to find I left my G27 at home on the nightstand!

Coincidence? Anyone else ever "forget" to pack your piece before leaving home in the morning? (Now I'm getting paranoid about this turning forty thing.)

I actually have to remember to NOT bring it everywhere I go... almost walked in the building the other day. I would have looked really funny to an observer as I stretched out my arm to open the door and then immediately turned back LOL.

Yes, I left mine on the nightstand on the day the cleaning service lady came. Freaked her out, she called my wife and asked her what to do. Peg said just leave it there, he already missed it I'm sure. Went home at lunch and got it.

Wait til 50, won't get any better. By the way, I turned 50 today.

I found that when I was washing up in bathroom and put my carry weapon under a small table out of sight. I would almost everytime leave the room and find later I only had the empty holster for protection.

What I now do is lay the weapon on floor so it's always in sight. This has worked for me.

Not yet. 56 yr old. Have had to take the wife hers several times. Like Rocky, I realized one day I did not have my billfold. OOPS. If my pants are on my pistol is on.

:eek: Shame on you Brian!!! Eternal shame! Small point tho - was it safe from being got at?

Hey - this ''40'' thing - no excuse (where is the flagellation smilie!). Does not wash - go write 500 times - ''I must never go out without my piece'' :18:

I must admit - if I did take mine on and off - I daresay at near 61 I too could forget it. However - my dedication is 16/7 and it is always on my side - that way I cannot forget and should it ever be required no chance of reaching down to an empty rig!!

Let the piece be like a wristwatch - on in morn' - off at night :smile:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh and FrontSight - Happy Birthday to you Sir! :smile:

Hmmm...at the risk of being VERY politically incorrect...

I am not of the school of thought that says all guns must be unloaded and locked up at all times. Most American families grew up around guns, and there were few "gun accidents" in the days when guns were part of every day family life.

Since my kids were old enough to comprehend what a toy gun is, I've been teaching them the difference between toy guns and real guns. And since they were old enough to safely shoot a real gun, they've been doing so. And I've spent many nights tearing down my different guns, showing them how they work and function. And since we homeschool, they also memorized the basics of gun safety from an early age.

My kids are not "curious" about guns. They know them and how they work, and they know what they are for.
