    Oxygen and opportunity. Snuff would help.

    Calling the sheriff or 911 doesn't help a whole lot where we live. We are very isolated, away from mainstream everything. The only bad thing is that if something does go down, LEO will never get here in time. The last time we had to call it took them 45 minutes to get here and that was one of their quicker responses. If something happens which requires immediate response, we are on our own.

    Same here. I think there is only one (sometimes two?) deputies on duty at night to cover the whole county.

    I understand that, but the call is being recorded the minute you dial 911 and you never know that day might be your lucky day and help is around the corner. It’s an interesting enough topic and deserves it own thread.

    Frikkin A! I told off one lady who saw a guy kicking a door and snooping around the neighbor's yard to call to police instead of posting it on next door. There were 21 likes on that post in a few days time.

    Calling 911 first thing is always your best bet. That way if something does go down and you have to shoot someone, you are on record having called for help first.

    Personally if I am patrolling the neighborhood or just out for a walk, I like to be armed and with a couple spare mags, and my cell but I try not to stand out. It is all concealed. When I can get my sword cane I will carry that too because it blends in and I will still look like a non-threat. Remember the most dangerous threat, is the one you did not see coming.
