I'm surprised too, especially with smartphones that specifically have an app for that lol

I will admit I woke up completely confused because I was exhausted and in deep sleep after working a long shift that day. It was around 1am- first thing I saw when I opened my eyes were blue / red lights flashing from the window and non stop pounding on my front door with a policeman yelling "police!" I still hesitated, had my gun in my hand, then checked my cameras, confirmed it was police, then put my gun away and walked to open the front door.

Took about 90 seconds total I'd say for me to run around like a fool figuring out if it was really the police and decide to put my gun away and open the door.

Other than that, nope, I don't answer the door typically.

@Sedan_Clan what are your thoughts on this scenario? Shouldn't they identify their agency? Honestly, if someone is banging at my door at 1 AM I would have Mr.12 gauge double barrel in my hand

Well I don't always identify my agency either. I'll simply say, "Sheriff's Department." Generally speaking, people know which agency patrols their area and what their uniformed personnel look like. I would not recommend answering the door with a gun in your hand if it's law enforcement. I would also avoid it even if it's not law enforcement unless you want a brandishing charge; if you point it at someone and it's not in self-defense, that's assault with a deadly weapon with a firearm.

I've got BaBang (12 ga), Boomer (very short barrel .303) and Plinky (.22 semi auto). I just sold Grandpa (1876 Mauser) last fall.

Plinky. I want a .308 Mauser in the worst way. There was a guy who was selling Mausers online for years. World War II surplus. When I finally decided I was going to buy one he was out of business

Grandpa was .43cal. I couldn't find any ammo for it anywhere at what I considered a reasonable price. .308 is a common caliber so you shouldn't have any trouble that way, you just need to find the gun. Good luck in your search.

Yeah it's my kickoff (…end of my work week). I'm working my 1400-0600, with 6 hours of it being O.T. since we're so short-staffed.

Holy crap! Stay safe brother. Remember, shoot first and then ask questions later.

Haha! I feel like that should be a lyric in my theme song when I roll up to a scene.


edit: I just gave up my O.T. I just couldn't do it. I'm beat!
