    Rural, but in Germany at the moment. I'm separating from the AF in one month (29 days and counting) and I'll be settling in southern Ohio. Unfortunately, without jumping through hoops, I can't even own a gun over here. So no practice for me, except maybe stripping/assembling m-16s and m9s over at the armory.

    The piney woods of east Texas in a small-medium (about 90,000) city. VERY gun friendly here, as is most of Texas except Houston and a few other urban areas. In those places, it the local politicians, not the average citizen, who seem to have problems with guns and gun owners.

    This thread should have had a poll.

    Grew up and lived in city of 1/2 million for 30 + years, then moved to nowheresville. Lived on 60 acres near town with pop. 144 for 12 years.

    Ended up moving to where I work now instead of commuting so now rural town with pop. 3,500 or so but close to towns with universities and pop. of 30,000. I am about 100 miles from original 1/2 million city where my family still live.

    I'm far enough from downtown Nashville that I can't see it outside my window, but close enough to drive to it in around 20 minutes (that is, if traffic on I40 is cooperating). Behind me are the woods that belong to the Corps of Engineers, and the other side of that a lake.

    We were cleaning our "new" 1895 on the back deck when a couple of kids came out from the woods with fishing rods, and they didn't run screaming.

    It's a 40 minute drive to my parents' place, where there's peaceful rolling hills and the sounds of gunshots.

    Rural, but not rural enough. Several acres of land but neighbors too close for shooting comfort. Will disregard last sentence if BGs come looking for trouble, they'll find it!

    I'm suburban outside of Kansas City. I'm lucky to live in a safe part of town, but I work closer to downtown, where we boast one of the highest murder rates in the country.

    Suburban, but

    Way too close to Ground Zero
