Seeing as I'm currently in my bedroom, my weapons are as follows.

Directly in front of me: An SKS and a Mosin M91/30 plus ammo for each.

Next to the Mosin and SKS: A drawer containing several sharp knives ranging from a crappy balisong knife to a Tramontina bowie knife.

Behind me next to my bed: A Mossberg bullpup 12 gauge shotgun and a Mossberg 702 Plinkster .22 rifle plus ammo for each.

On my nightstand: A Mosin Nagant bayonet, a collapsible ASP baton knockoff and two or three flashlights.

Right now, on my person? Or right now, that I could get to if I heard somebody break in?
If somebody came into the room right now, I could launch this damned monitor at them, then help them become more aerodynamic by poking air holes in them with my folding knife.

I'm at work right now, so at this moment: LCP in my pocket, 4D Maglite in front of me. M&P40 in my van across the street.


When I'm sitting in front of my computer at home, I have my USPc (+3 mags) under my pillow, LCP on my desk, 3 knives and several swords in close range. In my safe (beside my desk) I have an M44 (loaded, and a 20rd bandolier), shotgun (15 rds on it/in it), another shotgun, AK with 4 loaded mags + one 75rd drum, 2 .22 pistols and a .22 rifle.

AR is (mostly) on order plus I have multiple other projects in the pipe :D

Oh crap, where do I start......:D

Son has a Rossi single shot break action .308, Armscor M1600 22LR, and I have a Ruger Super Redhawk .44mag, but, no rounds for the .44.

Some big kitchen knives, a razor sharp Buck knife, and best of all, a wife with a VERY short fuse......

My HD gun is 3.5 feet from where I'm sitting and I could get it under 4-5 seconds. I also have a lighter, a back scratcher and Flintstone vitamins. :D

I was talking about the sex face.

But that sounds like something from a spy movie, something a guy would whisper in tense urgent tones into a hidden microphone, like:
"Red Velvet to Condor One. Abort!
Repeat: Red Velvet to Condor One. Abort! The Mango has been compromised! REPEAT: The Mango has been Compromised, over."

[static crackles]
"Condor One this is Red Velvet, do you read? Over."

I've got about 5'2" of raging angry Italian gamergirl on the sofa next to me; God help the poor soul that might intrude at this point. It would be Texas Chainsaw Massacre up in here.

You have an actual, live girl on the couch at this very moment and you're posting on the internet?

Have you ever tried to snug up to a raging Italian in the mist of the last level of Resident Evil 5? I've already been to the hospital twice this week. :lol:

I also have my Kershaw Lahar in my pocket, my Ka-Bar in my gear bag plus a Swiss army knife, hammer, and pepper spray and kitty knuckles on my friends keychain plus his knife(im gunna say its a cheapo m-tech knife)

plus a lot of empty glass soda bottles
