That a rack my 870
Great, now the opossums getting into the neighbor’s trash are going to keep me awake most nights.
That actually is a good idea.
My wife carries her keys in her pocket all the time, and manages to “pocket-alarm” the car regularly, which is quite disturbing if you are standing in the garage when she does it.
She also pocket-locks the car, and if I’m around and here the locks click, I try to get away from the car before she accidentally hits the alarm button.
Because then she’ll dig around, and likely pick the wrong fob, and set off the OTHER car alarm.
Well...yes, I already place my keys on the bedside nightstand......right with my 1911 and two extra Wilson Combat 8 round mags......
Not a bad idea really.
Put a handgun in a fast-open safe by the bed.
And if you don’t have a panic button, throw your keys at the perp.. You have ONE shot. LOL
Yes it is, and I’ll tell my daughter....it is also something to think about for a sort of “medic-alert” kind of thing....Older people should keep them with them and if they get hurt or fall down, they can hit the panic button on the car.....
I just have to know what that was supposed to mean.
It depends on how far away your bedroom is from the car and how many walls are between the bedroom and the car. And is the car in the garage or not.
If you have cats and they walk on it and set them off unintentionally well, I guess it is still worth it ( been their done that LOL !!!!)....
My Lhasa Apso dog has very keen hearing and will bark at the slightest strange noise. There is no better intruder alarm to give you enough time to grab your weapon, than a good watchdog.
You can sure tell I haven’t posted much recently. Sorry about the multiple entrees.
I keep my car keys under my bed. That way I have no choice but to spend at least a few seconds on my knees every morning before I go to work :-)
And (here’s the real bonus), if you sleep walk, now you can sleep drive !! :-)
I don’t think my car has that feature.
The other night at 3 am, the Dobe went bananas at the window so I just opened the front door for him.
He silently ran the perimeter several times and nothing was there [that I saw] so I assume it was just the infernal neighborhood cat again.
[he was so disappointed]
“If you have cats and they walk on it”
I have to girlz. One night I left the TV remote control on the floor. Don’t know what they did, but next day I turned it on and had nothing! Took me an hour to figure out how to get it working again!
I have a Mossberg 500 next to my bed. It has (in order of use) two rounds of #9 birdshot, two rounds of 00 buckshot, and one magnum slug. I figure if I get down to using the fifth round then someone has it coming to them.
