Tonight is a bad night for me. My dog, who never barks, started barking with passion earlier. I don't know of its instinct or training, but whenever that happens or when I'm on high alert, I always grab my 9 and also in a clip. It always on safe and never chambered, but I feel safer knowing its ready.
I've got a sick intuition about things. I've learned to never ignore my gut and so I don't.
