I've lived on the same gravel road for almost 8 years. Very little trouble here. A few weeks ago our neighbor had his fishing pole stolen from the pond in clear view of both our back doors. Last night someone went down this road getting into every vehicle they could. They got a .22 from one of the neighbors down the road. Dunno yet if it's a rifle or pistol. So depending on which way they were going by the time they got to me they were armed. I'm currently home almost all the time and armed with at least a handgun but I can't help but wish that man would have carried his gun inside.
