I keep going back and forth with wanting to apply for a carry permit. Friday after work, i wish i had applied for it earlier. On days my g/f works mornings we'll car-pool. This friday we went to the mall after work for some shopping/dinner, and got home around 9. As soon as we opened the front door we were greeted with this scene: the bottom shelf of our entertainment center was shattered all over the floor. I had her stand by the open front door with the cell phone pre-dialed for 911 while i walked through the apt with a 15lb dumbell in my hand. Thankfully no one was in there, and how the glass broke is still a mystery. I was uneasy all night and got maybe 2hrs of restless sleep after i had placed a kitchen knife in the bedroom just-in-case.
