I've always wondered, as many of us probably have, how I would react to a sudden, loud noise in the middle of the night. I got the opportunity to discover exactly what I would do the other night. I was sleeping peacefully in the comfort of my own bed. I was suddenly jolted awake by a loud crashing sound, clearly coming from inside the apartment. My room mate works nights so there shouldn't be anyone inside. Within seconds I am up with my .45 in hand clearing the house. Turns out my room mate took part of the night off and was home early and dropped something in the kitchen. I think I startled him more then he startled me. I was glad for this scenario. I now know I can go from a dead sleep to fully awake, prepared, aware, and armed, in a matter of seconds. Good to know these things!
