Coming down on my adrenaline rush atm. It's 3:25 am right now. About 20 minutes ago I was getting ready for bed. Doors locked. Most lights out. I had my shotgun beside the bed tonight instead of the closet tonight. No rounds in the gun but five on the stock. All of a sudden I hear a car that sounds close. No big deal. There's always this loud echo from the cars about 150 yards across the street. To ease my curiosity I peek out of the blinds to see headlights in the driveway. I immediately became fully awake and grabbed the shotgun. Loaded one and pumped. Loaded four more.... Then scurried like crazy to put pants on. Yes... Didnt want to go out pantsless. I then stand in the hall between my room and the front door. Quiet, listening. Then move to the front door and stand there waiting for the knob to jiggle. Gun aimed at the door. Finger on the safety ready to slide it off and move to trigger. I had forgotten the door was even locked. After waiting what seemed like 5 minutes I looked out a gap in the window. Saw the car still sitting there now turned off. Only to realize its my sisters car. Wrapping it up. I *****ed her out for not calling and told her she almost had a loaded 12ga pointed at her. But I'm proud to say I still followed most safety rules keeping the finger off the trigger until I saw who it was or gave a warning. My gun will now be loaded. It may have taken me about 27 seconds to fumble those 5 shells under stress.
