Back when I was a cop and later a PI in a dangerous city I was constrantly "on the hunt" and alert.
However, now that I haven't had to actually use my gun for a quite a few years I've grown a bit complacent. I'm going to a party with some of the local cops tonight and if I get the chance I will quiz them on what's really going on down here with regard to all the major dope busts and home invasions.
In the past, these same guys didn't think honest citizens like me had much to worry about, since most of the crime is dope & gang related. However a friend of my wife is married to a different local cop and she's getting a CHL at his insistance. So maybe things aren't all that "safe" after all?
My advice isn't for everyone. It's primarily for legally armed citizens who refuse to be victims.
