61,

And your 380 should hide very will regarding carry. When I carry with light clothing it can be carried in a pocket or I carry mine in a De Santis Ankle Holster (Black Nylon) most of the time. But the important point is "I have it on" at all times should I need it! Other than *Federal Buildings, Signs or Not! But it is well concealed! I never show it or talk about it when I am out! I am sure you do not need any explanation at this time about that! Glad you are OK, since it could have been a horrific experience!

Like I said, you saw no one, nothing is gone, moved, disturbed, nothing, only a sound and a curtain move. You saw the neighbors house cat take off. He most likely came over to clean up something that smelled good in your kitchen sink.

Set up a video camera, and he will be back. Post the video here so we can see it.

Many years ago my wife and I experienced an attempted car jacking. It occurred not on a city street but on an isolated desert highway 100 miles from the nearest city.
There was a light snow falling and very dark around midnight. We were driving thru the night to Montana. There in my headlights was a U-haul moving truck blocking the highway parked at an angle.
My first response was pass my Colt Commander to my left hand. As I slowed to stop a man appeared from behind the truck in my headlights. He started walking toward the driver side door. I told him to stop do not come any closer. He was speaking in Spanish about a break down. He wanted a ride.
By this time the Colt was in my right hand. That is when I heard someone behind me attempting to open the rear right car door. I turned very fast running at an ultra-high adrenalin level.
I yelled at the shadow in the rear window, down you SOB!! The Colt was ready to fire locks off a "Flying Ash Tray" in the chamber. The shadow ran to the truck. This is all moving at warp speed. The first felon was moving toward my left door. I thrust the Colt out the window fully prepared to shoot. He raised his arms and screamed he was not armed and ran behind the truck.
The scene was clear but I had to get around the truck. I did not know if we were going to be ambushed from the cover of the truck. I put my wife down on the floor and punched the Big V-8 into the desert and clearing the truck back on the highway and gone.
This was before good cell phones. When I finally contacted the Highway Patrol they were looking for these guys. They were armed and very dangerous illegals.

Not all of us can carry all the time. I spend more time at work than not and we can not carry at work. With that said, I have had my cc for almost two years and am only now starting to carry every chance. It helped a lot to move my carry gun from the safe to a lock box in my room. With that said, I carry every chance I get, as long we are not going somewhere that I can not. I didn't notice how much time I spent in gun free zones like schools until I started working on my permit.

LOL on some of those responses. I wasn't trying to flame. I just assumed (and you know how that goes) You had multiple options.. If that's what you got, that's what you got . Still would recommend staying outside though.
