    Rural, quiet, peaceful, private, and really dark at night.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I chose suburbs because the cities I end up living in aren't big enough to count IMO. To someone who grew up in North Dakota, I probably live in a city. We don't have any buildings over 5 stories though...

    Country is the most accurate altho more accurate for me to say ''semi-rural''. Lot of open areas around but also some areas of fairly dense housing.

    Even in local (county) town, few building over two stories and those that are the old ones downtown of historic interest.

    Cities? Grew out of those long ago

    P.S. I think country should have been 'county', but that's what I selected. I used to live in the city, but I'll never go back. Nothing against anyone in that respect--to each his own. One must weigh the pros and cons of each, and decide what they really want out of life.

    I chose country even though I live in a small town. The county in which I reside covers a space almost 3/4 the size of Rhode Island and has less than 12,000 people. The small town where I reside has less than 4,000 people. If I go west over 100 feet I am in the woods. So country.

    Closest major city would be Phoenix. While I technically live in a city, its really just a suburb without a major town.

    I would have voted country a couple of years ago, but now it has to be the burbs. Our little subdivision is almost completely built up, a new Wal Mart opened in Nov, just down the road and two new developments have gone up across the road. When we moved in in 05 we used to watch the deer feeding in the field across from the house - haven't seen any lately. Also used to have a bear living in the woods about a 100 yards from the house. Its still quiet and very little traffic.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Where I live the crickets and coyotes making noise at night can be deafening.

    Its a dull roar at times.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Uptown Phoenix, now the fifth largest city in the US (not counting all the adjacent cities). Probably the most gun-friendly large city in the world.
