@JTJ: Thanks for sharing. Great idea on the question codes. We live in a two-story, all exits downstairs, all bedrooms upstairs. We are alarmed as well but I guess I don't trust it 100 percent. If we...

This is probably the closest to my situation, with the GunVault and all. Cock the hammer and go seems easy. Besides that -- and the safety, of course -- I wouldn't want to fumble with the slide,...

Thanks guys. Honestly, I haven't asked him for fear of looking too eager or excited about my new hobby. And also, this gun wasn't his service weapon so I don't think he spent much time cleaning it....

All good points to consider. As a family man, home invasion is my biggest fear as well. We had an alarm system installed about a year ago for peace of mind but having the .45 around makes me feel...

All good tips. I like the idea of keeping it loaded but not chambered. That would give me peace of mind knowing that it's ready with a simple pull of the slide and a flick of the safety. The idea of...
