A man’s got to do what a man’s got to do. Occasionally that means you have to spring into action even when caught with your pants down. Sometimes you aren’t even wearing pants. Or a shirt. Or shoes. Luxuries right? Who needs ‘em!

    My house alarm had a short and went off a few months ago, I was checking doors and windows wearing nothing more than a USP .45 with weapon light.

    Someone should create a self defense course that allows you strip down to your underwear or whatever you wear at night. While that sounds ridiculous, it’s a completely realistic scenereo that’s very different than the way most people shoot. My house shoes are completely different than my tennis shoes, my underwear won’t allow me to carry an extra mag or to quickly store a handheld flashlight, etc.

    Exactly why I have transitioned to a go-bag over “war belt” or chest rig.

    Pants are overrated.

    Superheros wear underpants over pants.
    Heroes only wear underpants.

    • supergun

      Legend Heroes wear nothing under their pants.

    I dunno about you guys, but I always wear nothing less than my full battle-rattle when I go to sleep, just in case!

    Did they flee because he was armed or because he was “armed”?

  • Fred Johnson

    Hell yeah!!!

    I wonder if he was wearing English Leather cologne.
    Reminds me of the South Africa I love (and miss).

    So let’s say that you were taking a shower when someone entered your house with malicious intent and you take him down due to no other options, do you still have to wait with your unloaded gun and the body to explain to the police or are you allowed to put something on?
