    The booby hatch
    I'm visiting my girlfriend for the holidays and was screwing around on the computer while she was out. I hear a rapping sound on the bedroom window (venetian blinds drawn) and then what sounds like tearing. Her condo is on the first floor of the complex so the windows are on ground level. There was an attempted break-in through this window before and I thought it might be the same deal this time. I go to the living room, open up my Pelican 1750 and pull out my AR (I always bring it with me if I'm coming to visit). I pull the charging handle back but as it's my first AR and I haven't messed with it much, I fail to draw it back far enough to chamber a round so it's now halfway chambered. Dammit. I put it down and draw my USPc from the 1750...at least I know how to handle this. As I bring it to bear on the front door, my girlfriend walks in with an armload of groceries.

    Her: "WTF are you doing?"
    Me: *bringing pistol down* "Was that you at the window?!"
    Her: "YES! I needed help with the groceries!"
    Me: *ashamed* "Oops...sorry."
    Her: *looking around* "Why the pistol and not the rifle?"
    Me: *recounts my difficulties operating the hardware*
    Her: *LOL* "Well at least you'll protect my house...thanks, dear."

    Lessons learned:

    1. Need more time with the rifle
    2. Keep the locks off the 1750 when it makes it to the destination...they slow down access to the firearms too much
    3. Girlfriend has a better sense of humor than I thought

    Don't you think the 1750 is overkill for an AR?

    Not really. I'm planning on putting other things in it. Right now, it houses my AR, USPc, two extra USPc mags, three extra AR mags, and Pentagon X3 w/ Viking Tactics mount. I'm planning on putting a Glock 21 in it with a couple mags too. Or maybe another upper. Who knows what Santa will bring me...
