    Who carries their wallet with them when they're working in the yard?

    The only thing I'm carrying is my firearm & a yard tool of some sort.

    2 less bg's in the 'hood'
    You refer to your neighborhood as "the hood"?

    no. But if 2 guys came walking into MY yard with guns drawn, I would think to myself, "when did I move."

    That sort of thing doesnt normally happen where I live. Detroit? Ya, I'll buy that. But SE Washington state? I dont think so.

    I'm on the outside edge of 'The Hood'. Makes me nervous, but it's all my wife and I could afford to rent for the time being. But, I promise you that I NEVER go anywhere without my wallet, ID's, or at least one handgun. If I can't take it inside with me, it waits in the car.

    Not that I'm paranoid. Everyone I've met around here- neighbors, people walking by on the sidewalk, etc- have been very nice, polite, 'say hello' kind of people. But, go a block further, and I would probably be the only person under 60 legally allowed to own a gun.

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    Sorry, I'm stuck on the yard work thing . . . maybe ask if they'd like a job doing yard work, while handing over my wallet and asking politely if they'd like my watch too, while doing my dead level best to commit their faces to memory? It occurs to me that this whole thing could serve as a great lever to convince the wife that yard work is a really bad idea.
