I'm not sure this is the right place for a story, but I'd like to tell everyone what happened to me last night and potentially raise awareness for those getting a little too comfortable. I'm temporarily staying in a small northwest town with some family while I'm waiting to move. Last night I was talking on the phone and didn't want to disturb my relatives, so I took a stroll down the road. There is a strange guy down the road with a bunch of animals he generally lets freerange. He probably has about 2.5 acres, and only half of it is fenced. Birds, rabbits, and dogs are let loose over the rest of the yard. As I was walking by at around 10:00 pm, two 60-70 dogs start charging and barking at me from behind his house. They came all the way into the road. I never knew I could draw and activate my light so fast. I yelled to go home in my best tone. I'm pretty sure I was saved by the output of the TLR-1 in the middle of the night and a loud voice that got the attention of the owner. I was also glad I had a front night sight. I never really thought I would ever find a real need for it, but turns out its a good idea to have this combo on your gun. That night I was about a half second from killing someones dogs. Moral of the story: Get a light, get some nightsights, carry your gun, and mind your dogs. Stay thirsty my friends.
