    One of the MO’s of city goblins is to drive out of the city and through a small town, then take the first gravel road and burglarize or do a home invasion at the first house they came to. Never answer the door without a gun in your hand.
    Way back in the day I was a city cop in a town of 800 with a mutual assistance deal in 2 nearby villages, one population 20 and the other population 230. We also answered calls In between to assist the sheriff’s office, so we saw lots of city goblins in our area.
    The point is that country dwellers need guns.

    My self-defense story detailed on a page in my blog. In almost 40 years of concealed carry, the one and only time I displayed a firearm and the will to use it was at my own front door at 01:00 on Christmas Day 2012.


    We live in a rural area of eastern Kommiecticut, with no police force, only the six state troopers on duty covering a large geographical area. We always knew we’d be on our own if shit went down.
