I was wondering who all has had false alarms where they have heard something that caused them to go into defense mode and ready their gun. I just had one, and my heart is still beating at 100 mph. I was coming in from the garage (had just steped out there for a second) and I heard this loud bang. At first I though something in the garage had fallen over so I checked, Nope. The dog was barking in the direction of the hall so I decided to check. So I make it to my room (with a very large, very sharp butcher knife in hand), grabbed the ol 30-06 (I have not bought a working (safe to use) shotgun yet, and cannot buy a hand gun for another year and a half so the 06 will do for now.) and then proceed to checking the house. Well, eventually I found the source of the noise. A body wash bottle had fallen off a shelf in the shower. Before anyone say anything about me going "hunting" insted of calling the cops, I know I should of, but my first instict was to get the gun. I didn't think about calling the cops until I was already about done searching the house (which ony took 1 minute).
