    In your extensive experience, is it worth getting "the works" or just the standard economy package?

    Haha. I miss Chappelle's show. Too bad he lost it when people started screaming, "I'm Rick James, b*tch" every time he was out in public.

    only once

    Three weeks ago, I was laying in bed (maybe 11:30pm) and heard some footsteps in another room. Knowing my mom and brother were in bed already, I grab my G19 from my nightstand and go to investigate. It was a false alarm, the dog was walking around in the kitchen (seems louder on the wood floors) wanting some food. Fed him and went back to bed lol

    I wondered the same thing after this post. Why must poor, innocent teddy bears be subjected to racial bias?

    Dave Chapelle and Chris Rock are great comedians cause they make fun of EVERYBODY (black people included). Most black comedians are very racist and have no problem calling white people "cracker." Too bad there's no white equivalent of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton :supergrin:

    I was tending bar and closing for the night when I had an extremely drunk man walk in... I told him "sorry buddy we are closed" and he smiled, waved, and walked out the front door.

    As soon as I spun the deadbolt I heard him assault my exterior trash can...through the peep hole I watched him slowly formulate a plan...then start to attack the front door. It's a big, thick solid wood door, so I wasn't concerned...but he kept at it for a minute or so before taking a break. I yelled at him through the door that I had called the police and he should leave, but that seemed to stir him up. He really went after the door at that point.

    I hit the panic button and got my G17 from the office and physically wedged the door shut while that lunatic screamed he was going to kill me and almost got through the door before the Dallas police got me out of the grease.

    Dude went to jail, new door had to be installed, my G17 never cleared leather again.

    I lived in a 100+ year old house, nothing but wooden floors, lots of squeaks, mom is an extremely light sleeper, kept yelling at me for clomping around when I was trying to walk as lightly as possible so as to not wake her. :faint:

    Weren't wooden floors one of the "alarm systems" in castles in feudal Japan?

    Invest in a tazer (not sure if your state allows them) or a snap out baton. Better and less expensive than bullets ;)

    It never works trying to be quiet! My cat used to go flying across my kitchen and cause they were wooden floors she couldn't get any traction and used to slide into the doors/walls :supergrin:
