Well I live in a small apartment about a mile from campus with my twin brother ( awefully handsome guy of i do say so myself) and my girlfriend. As far as the neighborhood goes its not that bad, some break ins from the usual low lifes but as far as violent encounters go there aren't that many usually smash and grab during the day or crimes of opportunity. So please take that into account.
I have my glock 19, 1 mag pdx1, 1 mag hornady critical defense, I have my small LED flashlight and my mossberg 5500 Mkii with 00 buckshot. The downside of my house being broke into is me needing to go grab my brother and getting him into my room before the BG decide to get violent, which would be near impossible because my house is very open, chances of walking out of my room and not seeing at least on BG is slim to none. So now I have to talk my brother into getting a SD gun.
