    My next door neighbor knows because we're of like mind. But that's the only one. Oh, and I know the neighbor across from me likes shooting because I saw him tote out a homemade target stand with a bunch of targets.

    I guess I would much rather advertise that I will NOT be a victim if they or their friends get any ideas. I guess thats my way of thinking though

    Ran into a gentleman at the range today and he was saying how he wished he could have brought his AR instead of just his .22. Turns out he lives on my street about an 1/8th of a mile away. Small world.

    I don't trust many people in my neighborhood so no I haven't told anyone.

    Even if I wanted to tell them I wouldn't have much luck. Most of my neighbors are from another country and very few appear to understand and speak the English language.

    I dont have any neighbors.

    I do have a pretty fair "killing zone" around my house. The deer heads and turkey fans are testimony.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I have one neighbor that knows, he told me first one day. Our neighborhood has garages and alleys at the back of the house and I noticed someone move in diagonally from us with 2 giant gun safes a couple weeks ago. Haven't asked yet.

    I introduce myself and I'm as neighborly as can be, but, not unlike your neighborhood with 'scattered rental properties', I will not let anyone outside of my circle know I carry or that I have guns at all. Being neighborly is one thing, but trust is earned.

So, with that being said; do you introduce yourself to the new neighbors and let them know that you pack heat and you have guns? Who do you guys tell?

    There are a lot of homes and apartments around me. I have recently thrown a savage and rem long gun boxes out into recycling so I suppose someone knows.

    I am sure most can figure it out as much as we leave early in the AM in full Camo to go hunting and playing with the dog in the yard with a duck. But the only one I have told is the single older lady next door, cause she has been broken into and I wanted her to know that if anyting is every wrong she can come to safety next door. She may have shared this with her daughter and grandchildren as well as I put them on the invite list. I have several cops in the neighborhood and most of them know as we have discussed other crime issues in the neighborhood, but they have no clue what I have in the safe.

    Yes. My neighbors know that I have guns. They don't know where in the house they are. Even if they did, they would not be able to get to them.

    One of my neighbors warned some homeless guy who was sleeping under my porch that I am heavily armed. He grabbed his gear and we have not seen him in our neighborhood. I did not find out until a month after the incident.
