anyone coming up my driveway after dark is considered a possible threat. as i said i live in very rural area. my closest neighbor is at least half a mile away. my yard is fenced, as is my property. even though i'm armed when confronting someone after dark, unless they truly are a threat, they will have no idea that i'm armed. i don't go around showing off my firearms. but it's inches away if needed.
It is always good to have a gun handy. I live in a nice neighborhood no were near the hood, but drug dealers drive through our neighborhood doing deals occasionally. We had a shootout directly in front of our house a few months ago, I found 5 9mm casings.
