    PLEASE! Identify the state and city!

    There's nothing I enjoy more than sitting down to the latest posts in this Defensive Carry forum. But post after post include stories or links to home-town newspapers which give no clue as to the location of the story. Does anyone know how many "Westfields" and "Hillsides" there are in the US???

    I simply can't imagine I'm alone in trying to find out where the cops were shot or where the latest home invasion was, but so often the reader is forced to dig far beyond just a simple link to try to find WHERE the posted story happened.

    PLEASE - if the story or newspaper link you add does NOT include a "dateline" with city and state, take the 3 extra seconds to add that information somewhere in your post!

    Thanks!!!

    Yeah, heck fire, there are at least seven Nashvilles in the U.S.A. There's even London and Paris in Kentucky.

    So that is where you get the upidy, high falutin attitude. Just cause you live near Paris and London don't make you any better than the rest of the folks in the Natural State.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Doesn't it say next to your name where you are located? I thought it says "Lakewood, Colorado" under my avatar. Maybe I misunderstand though.

    True, but several members post stories from around the country, and thanks to them. Locations would be very helpful in that instance.
