    With the huge power outage this weekend, I'm wondering if anyone kept a gun handy and in what capacity, condiiton, location and type. Power outages are prime times for burgluries and looting; security systems are often down and emergency services have typically lower response times, just the occation I own a gun for. I had an uncocked Glock 19 with a full clip within reach while awake and the gun and clip separate but both on the night stand while sleeping.

    I've got a 4D cell flashlight underneath the bed within easy reach. I've got a loaded Glock 19 [124+P Gold Dot] and an extra magazine in the safe. And my off-duty Glock 30 [200+P Gold Dot] high up in the closet in condition three [which is my normal carry condition off-duty]. In addition I have CN/OC pepper spray available and even an OC grenade a vendor gave me at a high liability conference.

    BTW, your G19 has a magazine not a clip. I'm not nitpicking at you :D But some people on the net will lose their minds and go ballistic on you if you say clip for a handgun. Just want to save you the grief ;)

    Its amazing how many people I know that said that they had their firearms at the ready during the blackout. Its funny that one of my instructors, who I always considered "anti-gun", told me that he had an old 1911 cocked and locked on his nightstand during the night.123
