Ever misplaced your pocket gun?

So I came home and put my Ruger LCP on top of the cabinet in the kitchen. I was fishing through the top shelf for a box of garbage bags and thought it would be a good place to leave it while I completed my task. I looked everywhere for two days until it dawned on me where I left it. I tore my car apart, emptied my closet where I keep my gun safe, searched the entire house, and dug through the couch cushions.

I'm wondering if I'm the only one to lose a loaded firearm in the company of my house and family?

Can't say I have. My pocket gun stays in my pocket when I come home and doesn't come out until I put it with my other guns.

I have misplaced alot of things over the years but not a gun.
I never talked to anyone who had to fire their gun who said "I wished I had the smaller gun and fewer rounds with me" Just because you find a hundred people who agree with you on the internet does not mean you're right.

Gun, no...Magazines, yes. I keep waiting for my wife to complain about one banging around in the dryer.

I have occasionally misplaced one. When you've got as many as I have, it's easy to do. No kids around to worry about, and the wife won't touch them, although she has her own personal revolver. She won't touch my pistols. They always show up.

I was more careful when the kids were small. Although even then my kids knew to leave them alone and there was no mystery to them. They knew all they had to do was ask and they could handle and shoot them all they wanted. Under supervision of course. They also knew what would happen if they touched them without supervision.

That's why you should never carry a SideArm in a container separate from your body. Guns are lost all the time when carried this way.

When we took our handgun safety class the guy teaching it looks at his assistant just as we are about to get started and says "where's my gun?" then tears about the place looking for it, even going to his unlocked car.

It was a face palm moment if there ever was.

My mistake started when I placed my LCP in my coat on the way home. I had a topless jeep and it rained for the twenty minute ride home. I took the gun out of my coat pocket when I walked in the house and my ex asked me to grab the trash bags. I now tend to my gun before attempting to do other things upon my arrival. Lesson learned.

Only once.

Whenever I work in the garage I place a pistol somewhere handy and toss a shop rag on it. One time I set it on top of my front tire with the rag over it. When I was done working on the truck I hopped in and backed slowly out of the garage. I remembered exactly where I left my G23 about a split second later when it hit the floor. I hopped out and picked it up.

Being a well seasoned pistol I couldn't even tell which scratches were the fresh ones. Happy to say the drop safety worked 100% that day.
