    Forty years ago when they built this house it stood right on the edge of Nashville, the edge of the suburbs. Now Nashville has grown and it's in a weird suburban enclave. Not too far from downtown but we all have acre lots, most of my neighbors are Jewish retirees and we have deer and coyotes in the garden. The deer eat the apples I grow. I let them be.

    High concentration of retirees means there is a lot of people home during the day, plus we are a backwater, we notice strange vehicles. but because we are in Nashville Metro Area we are just a few minutes from the precinct.

    It's a good place.

    Small town in the Southwest corner of Missouri. I can be in the country in 10 minutes and to my gun range in 15 minutes. Still pick up trucks running around with gun racks in the back window.

    Small town (40,000) in Central California. A lot of agriculture, especially grapes (wine!), almonds, etc. The county is 2,400 sq. miles, so there is a lot of open land, but I usually shoot at a range just because I am sure of the background.

    Same here, except Nebraska, and cut the times in half.

    Very urban right now, in a "city" of 50,000, surrounded by a city of almost a million.

    Suburban. Smaller town too. Hunting and shooting is common for a lot of the residents.

    Forgot to mention shooting, I was leaning on the mailbox a few weeks ago chatting with the guy who lives over the street. We both have small breed dogs, we were talking about the coyotes that are in the neighborhood.

    Him: 'Now if you hear a single shot late at night don't worry about that, it's just a coyote in my garden' - winks.
    Me: 'That's good to know Don, but if you miss and he runs over here it'll be the last thing he does' - winks back.

    I live in a BBQ gun neighborhood.

    About 30 minutes from Raleigh, but "they" are coming just as fast as they can develop.

    Rural/Urban I live on the very limit of the city (pop. 20,000)
    Cow pastures and a very large creek next to my property.

    I regularly see Turkey, deer and hogs when I leave to go to
    work. And some very large gators at times.

    Urban at the moment. I'd really like to try living in a more rural/small town area (I've spent all my life in the burbs so far) but it really depends on where I can get job offers when I graduate.

    More suburban than urban. Not necessarilly in the city, but not in the sticks either. I live in a bedroom community of Winston-Salem.

    I am just about 15 minutes from nothing and a half hour away from anything.

    Live rural, work in urban..........

    Where we live, I am surrounded by timber, nearest neighbor is a long way off! We're lucky in that it is a hard place to find. We are so far out, it is almost an hour to the nearest Wal-Mart!

    Since we have been here only one person has come down the drive (after the 'END OF STATE MAINTENANCE' sign!), who didn't mean to be coming here. He got his directions from Google Maps, his directions led him to my front door!!!! (p.s. anybody know how to contact Goggle maps so it doesn't happen again?)

    Unfortunately, I work all over the state, but mostly in Richmond, Va.......a city that regularly makes the top of the un-safest cities list.

    Pretty rural for me. I can shoot in my backyard.
