Hey fellow gunners this is my first post and I need some feedback. The story line goes like this, I was sitting in my living room with my brother and sister ages 11&13 when there was a loud crack noise followed by glass smashing in the far end of the house where the garage is. First reaction was my brother and sister ran upstairs to my parents master bedroom and locked the door behind them ready to dial 911 if needed. I instinctively ran to my lock box and grabbed my FNP 9 seeing that the previous week my dad's truck was broken into. Parents were out at this time of the night and i was babysitting, turned out the left the garage door open and somehow one of the wooden storage shelves collapsed that was holding my mothers flower pots. Explained this to some of my friends and parents and everyone seemed to tell me i had no business automatically turning to my firearm. I was told i should have looked first before jumping to a conclusion about an intruder. I would rather be prepared than become victim.
So what do y'all think? Did i jump the gun too quick or was I correct in being prepared for the worst?
