It's early evening. Everyone else is out & I'm just at home polishing up a part in my hd g19. Had to disassemble the slide to get to the part. I hear a knock on the door.

Ended up being nothing. Just some real estate lady handing out flyers. Still, for that split second, I felt vulnerable. My home gun was disassembled and the key to the gun safe was in the other room. What did I learn? Always have another gun near by when you're cleaning (and I guess also 'own at least two guns'). Others already know this, I'm sure. I wouldn't say I'm paranoid, just a little pessimistic.

What about the Remington 1100 wired to the doorbell?

Were you cleaning it too?

One of life's little wake up calls. Good thing it wasn't a land shark. So now will your secondary weapon be in place?

What are the chance of a home invasion? What are the chance of a home invasion at the exact same time you are cleaning your gun? I bet you are more likely to get struck by lightening. You better not go outside!!!

It reminds me of the movie Silverado (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090022/)
Scott Glenn is out target shooting with his pistol and rifle, practicing for a big shootout. After he empties his weapons, the badguys pop out exclaiming "You're empty!"

What are the odds of being in a shooting of any kind, yet alot train for the situation. The odds may be small but they are there, i always clean 2-3 at a time so i have another by my side ready to go.
