    Would the reaction have been the same over a bubble gum wrapper?
    ... a Coke can?

    I carry 24/7, but when I find a piece of trash in my front yard that the wind blew in, I just pull out my piece and blast it over into the next yard.

    Well, no. Seriously, what I typically do is to... pick it up and throw it into a trash bag.
    I think the main thing here wasn't the fact it was trash,but the location and diatance from the street,criminals do stupid stuff and might of dropped a pack of cigarettes etc. while casing the house looking to break in.It's better to go with a hunch and check it out than to assume it must be just trash that blew in and walk into a burglary with your family.

    agreed...if it was where I live now, I wouldn't think much of it. But if it was where I grew up, well...I'd freak out because we were over 100 yards away from the street. Depends on the situation of his property. Better to be a little paranoid and alive, than trusting and dead.

    One thing i forgot to mention, we got home that evening around 9:30PM... if it was day time no big deal, but since we got home at night then I figured I'd do what was best for my family..

    If you go and read my story you will understand why I probably went this route.

    Kind Regards,
    Read my story.

    That's a good idea. Clearing a house, even your own, by yourself is never a good idea. Glad it worked out okay for you, though.
    Be Safe,
