You don't necessarily have to live in a "bad" area for bad things to happen there. It seems like every few years here in the Memphis area there will be a news story concerning someone being mauled to death by a pack of feral dogs. The last one I remember was of an elderly man who had walked to the local store for his wife and was attacked on his journey home. Throw in the fact that thugs go where the money is and you could easily find yourself being confronted in your own yard by an unexpected and nasty surprise. I actually live in a small town about 15 miles outside of Memphis, so crime is still very low around here. However, low doesn't mean no crime. There have been several instances of people having items taken from their garage while they had it open, among other crimes. So, if I'm outside, there is always some type of firearm with me. If I'm inside, you wouldn't want to kick open one of my doors to find out.

No. I have it close by where I can get to it easily. The same when replacing brake pads on my car. It was well within reach under a shop rag.

I do and several times I have seen a car load of gangbangers drive by while looking hard at my property and in my garage and the look on their faces when they see me openly wearing an N frame S&W revolver while working on a mower or vehicle is just priceless. I like to stop working and give them "the look". They stand on the throttle and never come back. Priceless......

With hundreds of thousands of people currently unemployed, with little hope for immediate recovery, we should all rethink this issue.

I'm 88, and no match for any two (or even one!) predators, so I am armed when answering the door, and when outside, even if it's to get to the car.

Being armed is good life insurance; and Situational Awareness is an important rider on that policy.

There's more than one reason why strangers should stay more than six feet from me...
