Bump in the night guns

Post by neener » Sat Aug 21, 2010 3:00 pm

It's 1:00 a.m., and you hear a noise outside, what's the first gun you grab to go investigate?

Me personally, I'd grab either my Mini-14 or my 12 gauge coach gun, depending on where our dog is barking.

My ideal gun to grab would be an AR-15 chambered in .45 ACP with a 10.5 inch barrel and a Sure-Fire tactical light. But also in my ideal world, such a gun would only cost $400 and require no tax stamp.

I'd grab the only modern firearm with self-defense rounds that I have: my CZ P-07. It works quite well and is my normal CCW.

If I heard something outside my house, I wouldn't "go investigate"...I'd call the police.

(If I wouldn't go somewhere without a gun, I wouldn't go there just because I do have a gun)

Well, normally when I hear something that the dog is barking at in the middle of the night, chances are, it's a raccoon or a coyote. Should have mentioned that.

Well I live in Jacksonville, so the concussion from the arty ranges often shake my whole house in the middle of the night. So aside from it setting off my PTSD :wink: , it takes a lot to get my ass out of bed! Now if something did hit me as strange; 1st I would check the door locks then peek out a window on each side of the house. 2nd I would turn on the floodlights at all four corners and check for someone hauling ass through the yard. Last I would decide to call 911 or grab the cordless, surefire, and witness 9mm and see what's missing from the yard. My neighbors would look poorly on me running around the yard with a long gun, but a compact pistol in the belt would'nt raise any eyebrows.

Where the hell did you get that? :?

I'd throw on my bandoleer and grab my ar-15. I can usally hear everything that happends around my home during the night. The noise would have to be pretty significant for me to do that.

Before i would go outside I would flip on the lights on the side of the house the noise came from, and go out. I'm pretty sure 90% of thieves would run as soon as a light comes on.

I live in a small town, so it would be a burglary in progress. Have 2 small barkers and a woofer to keep them busy.

My "bump-in-the-night" belt has a 1911, two spare pistol mags, an AR mag, a G2, a house key (my dead-bolts are keyed on both sides) and a couple extra pouches for the cordless phone and cell phone that's on the nightstand beside the bed.

Edit: Forgot the Benchmade.

What do you mean about a tax stamp? 45 ACP uppers are cash and carry, but well over $400.

I have an alarm system...if I didn't I'd have a dog. I'd prefer the dog but he is higher maintenance.

For real, this is how my drill goes.

Connected my box spring is a mount for my Titan Gun Vault, which is a push-button but not electronic safe that swings open and hands me a S&W M&P 15 .40 and extra magazine. This is 31 shots of good quality Speer gold dot hollow-points. There is a stream-light TSR-1 (light only) on this handgun. If I had to sweep the house, this would be the only gun I'd take. Preferably, the goblins hang out downstairs long enough for me to unlock my Saiga-12; in this case the M&P goes in a paddle holster and I just cover the stairs with the Saiga. I don't go downstairs and "clear" my house. I call the cops and they can do that. The goblins can take what they want, my wife and little boy are upstairs and those are the only things I intend to defend with gun-play. Ideally my wife has time to get herself and little boy out of the line of fire, but I cannot realistically imagine any goblins who want to come upstairs through a hail of 20 shells of 00.

I'm not a big fan of the C-Products magazines.

Also, crypto needs some work in following Rule #3.
