I live in a small town in a state that loves guns. Concealed carry is the habit of many, and open carry is allowed in this town. Since the town is so small, I never carry when we go about our business in town, but, when we leave town, for any reason, I carry.
However, the surrounding country side is beginning to be populated and this is worry-some….
