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
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 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.
My car keys stay by my wallet and watch on the valet box near the door. By the bed is a gun, much more useful than a panic button.
I keep mine within arm’s reach anyway. If the house catches on fire and I have to bail out the window (down the chain ladder) with the family, at least they will have a place to get warm—if I have the keys.
Must be for people with fancy cars and FOBS.
My forward operating base is not near home.
Gunshot wound should scare them off just fine. If I can reach my car keys, I can reach my 1911. Plus, car keys ain’t gonna help much if you don’t wake up ‘til they’re already in the house.
My truck doesn’t have one of those panic buttons anyway.
All it’s gonna do is scare the carp out of the raccoons
