    I'm on a small and hard-to-get-to island, so I could say that I'm way off in the Boonies; but it's a pretty civilized island, so I said I was in the country.
    We have lots of raccoons (I just fed this year's crop of kits and their moms, as a bribe to keep them out of our bird feeders) and a plague of under-hunted deer who eat up our gardens ("...but...but...don't kill Bambi!").
    Most of the island is deep forest, but we also have a well-stocked supermarket, a medical clinic, a couple of gas stations ($5.25 a gallon), and a golf course.
    We do our shooting in a friend's back yard.

    I live in the 'burbs on the north end of Colorado Springs. I have taken the cc class but have not visited the sheriff yet to file my paper work. Once I have my permit I will buy a M&P9c or Bersa 9UC as my carry gun. The north end of the Springs used to be a relatively trouble free part of town but that is rapidly changing. That and I work in north Denver and my company is not exactly in a nice part of town are what led me to finally want to start carrying. Once my wife gets her permit she will carry her Ruger SP 101 .357 which is currently a hd gun.

    I live in the suburbs in upstate NY. I do part time caretaking work at several estates in the area and carry my Smith and Wesson 3913 9mm semi on the job sites. I do a considerable amount of fishing and camping in the backcountry in the Adirondacks, sometimes alone, and carry my firearm when I am there.

    I live in the country..."and i like it that way". But the wife wants a burbs type place. Yech. I carry 9mm at 3:30 or 45 or 9x18 in a SOB. I worl from rural to downtown city, 3 states/nine counties. SO i still need 2 more Non-res permits to carry 24-7.

    I go down by the barn to shoot, or up to my parents. I am so not looking forward to having to find a (gulp) range if we move.

    I live in Homosassa Springs on the west coast of Florida, but drive 200 miles round trip daily to work in Orlando. I always have my Kimber Ultra CDP II in .45ACP or my Sig P250 9mm at the ready. Hey OJ, do you work an extra job to feed those mastiffs? Nice pups!!!!!!!

    One side of our street is county and the other side is city. Where does that put me? Wherever it is, here in the Mobile AL area, I carry either a Kel-Tec P-11 in summer clothes or a Witness P Compact .45acp when I can wear a long shirt or jacket or in an IWB holster if my summer clothes permit. BTW I do have a CCW permit. No open carry in Alabama unless you're hunting, and for that I have a 6 1/2" Ruger Blackhawk .357mag and a TZ99 for back-up.

    I carry every where it is legal because it is my right to do so.In PA.,I open carry,there is always an opertunity to perhaps educate or enlighten the opinions of skeptics or anti gunners! I Believe that a positive image in the practice of our 2nd. Amendment rights,is nessessary!

    Only my opinion !!!

    I'm pretty much in the boonies. The town I live in is just a wide spot in the road. I can be in a small town in around 8-10 miles but round me there's just hills and some cattle. A commander length 1911 Para LTC is what I have most the time with me. I switch around a lot though with a 229 40 Sig, A 40 cal Browning Pro, and a full length Springer 1911. Even when I lived in larger cities and/or the burbs I never cared much for pocket guns. But that has to do with not liking pocket carry mostly and carrying one IWB just feels funny to me. Being the avg shooting distance in situations that most people would find themselves in I would say just about anything from a 380 up would do someone OK. 7 yards is the qualifying distance for most CCW cards so I would guess if you can put a shot where you want it in that distance will work. Modern ammo makes choices of smaller pistols not near the issue it might have been years ago.

    Of course, sawed off to no shorter than 18" in barrel length right?

    I'm between the Burbs and the country and that means I can shoot anything I own in my backyard.

    Though I technically live in the suburbs, I voted "City".

    Kenosha is directly between Chicago and Milwaukee.....close enough to the city for me. Definitely have been having the crime rates to support my vote.



    ...unfortunately, I am not allowed to carry seeing as Wisconsin is governed by mostly Anti-Gun democrats. Funny thing is Wisconsin has mainly conservative views, but tends to vote liberal -even though the hunting scene is pretty big here especially a bit further north.
