How do you decide where you're more at risk? We live in a "safe" area except for this incident yesterday, this asshat wound up in our area last night.

Laura McDonal stopped at a north Phoenix Chevron station early Tuesday afternoon to refuel her car when a man swung her door open and pointed a gun at her face.
McDonal, 46, who is hearing-impaired, barely cracked the door open when the carjacker shoved her into the passenger seat and sped off.
"She thought she was going to die," said her husband, Mac McDonal, of Glendale. "Especially with the serial shootings and Baseline Rapist in the news lately."
According to Mac McDonal, his wife, who works for the Arizona Department of Economic Security, sobbed and begged the driver to let her out. She was so traumatized that she could not speak about the matter Wednesday, her husband said.
The carjacker, who went on a subsequent crime spree through the northwest Valley, was silent during the drive.
Minutes later, he pulled onto the frontage road near Interstate 17 and Dunlap Avenue and waved at her to leave. He snatched her purse and drove away in McDonal's state-issued Dodge Stratus.
"I'm just glad she's alive, that's the most important thing," Mac McDonal said.
The incident was the second in a string of at least 11 carjackings Tuesday by the same man. Police are still searching for the culprit, who is believed to be armed and dangerous.
A 2007 Chevrolet pickup he was last seen driving Tuesday afternoon was recovered by Phoenix police later in the evening at 102nd and Campbell avenues.
After dumping the pickup, Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies believe, he stole another vehicle and drove to Williams, where he carjacked a 1988 Pontiac late Tuesday night.
The carjacker was described as 5 feet 6, weighing 130 pounds, wearing a light shirt, dark pants and a Yankees hat. He appeared to be in his 20s.
Several victims, including McDonal, told officers he seemed to be speaking a foreign language.
While details are still being pieced together, authorities think the mayhem began around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday with a home invasion and carjacking near 35th Street and Grovers Avenue in Phoenix. Later, around 2 p.m., sheriff's deputies were called to 99th Avenue and Thunderbird Road, where they recovered McDonal's vehicle at a Texaco station.
"This is one of those things where you never think it will happen to you or someone you love," Mac McDonal said.
After he dumped McDonal's car, the carjacker traveled to Prairie Hills Circle in Sun City, where he carjacked a tan Kia. Officers do not know what vehicle the suspect drove to Sun City.
The suspect went on to carjack at least five more vehicles in the general area of Surprise and Sun City before moving on to Williams. He wrecked two of the vehicles, abandoning one of them to carjack another. The second collision, in Sun City Tuesday afternoon, involved a sheriff's deputy's SUV. The carjacker fled in the same vehicle, and nobody was seriously injured.
"This has got to be one of the worst carjacking incidents we've dealt with," Maricopa County sheriff's spokesman Deputy Doug Matteson said.
Officers from several Valley police agencies and the Williams Police Department are involved in the continuing search for a suspect.
"Our main priority is the safety of all of the victims involved," Matteson said. "There could be more victims that come forward."
I feel a little extra resistance whenever I try to seat my new Chip McCormick 8 round mag with a round in the chamber and I was concerned I might damage something if I try and force it in. It seats just fine with no round in the chamber.
If I understand you correctly, you can put a loaded (8 rounds) mag in your gun with an empty chamber and it will seat fine. But when you have a round in the chamber the same loaded 8 round mag won't seat without a little extra force?

Full Mag & 1 down the pipe.
I top off all pistols.
I download M4 mags by two rounds - easier to reload and more reliable that way.

I Did It!
I just wasn't using quite enough force to seat the magazine. It works fine. This is my first auto in 30 years so I was being a little too careful. Man, those Chip McCormick mags are great. I have two and I think I'll order a couple more.
