I've brushed it off as a drunk behaving badly, but I wonder sometimes in the back of my mind if this isn't wishful thinking? I'm clearly taking this too far, still walking around armed days later, right? Why does it still bother me, against all rational evidence that it was a brash, drunken boast from an anonymous person who may not even know where I live? Why can't I shake it? Is it possible to get closure without some idiot crashing through my front door donating cavity space to the lead in my bullets?

Been 'out of touch' for a few days.
I can understand your feelings about this and the trigger of the cocktail 'in absentia'…
Do yourself a favor and tomorrow buy the book by Gavin De Becker…"The gift of fear"…
Also rig your phone to a tape recorder of some sort that you can quickly activate should you get another call.
But I doubt you will as the drunken punk probably just dialed some random number…maybe to impress his friends.
But do carry a gun always with you and get an alarm system and a good dog for your home. Do tell the police that you are taking these precautions. Do place motion detectors/lights outside the home. Be careful of hiding spots around your home…and have your gun in hand as you exit your vehicle when coming home.
Also do make sure you have an umbrella liability policy that covers you for acts of self defense.
Also do speak with a criminal attorney for his advice on how to proceed. This all goes to the 'reasonable man' standard.

No guns on the base...i guess the military doesn't trust their very own. Next thing we'll see is no guns in combat
