    Greetings from Vermont

    Hello, I have lived in Vermont since 1989. A great state for hunting,fishing,canoeing. Politics are a little weird for this conservative, but you do what you have to do. As you all know, residents and non-residents don't need a CCW license. I even have some Canadian friends who visit here every year just so that they can carry a concealed weapon. Violent crime rate is low. Most villages and towns don't even have a police force. I would classify myself as an occasional CCW'er, but you folks are slowly educating me as I read this board.

    JWM - welcome to you

    I think a great many of us envy your VT CCW status - and that, with AK makes for the two most sensible and savvy carry states in the nation.

    Hope you'll join in, and enjoy the stay.

    Coming from CA, I find that to be simply astounding. Can you give us an idea of the size of the average village or town? I found when I moved to Oregon, that "city" means someting different here, and they don't use "town". I'm in a "city" of about 8,000 here.

    If JWM lives near Alburg VT, located in the Grand Isle area, close to Canada, the population is 485 people. NO crime rate in that area

    Welcome!

    I thought only us Brits talked about villages... maybe its an East Coast thing. We used to have hamlets too...P95 is probably old enough to remember those

    Hahaha - indeed - and they weren't cigars either!! I was within reach of one or two down in Devon County where I used to live - plus IIRC there were a few in Yorkshire I came across.
