How often do you hear someone shooting in rural America?

I’m out in rural KY and in starting in late Spring through and into November; I can hear someone in the distance shooting and practicing with their firearms. My concern is with the current state of our gubment how much of that is a person doing so because s/he thinks the defication is about to impact the indoor weather enhancer?

I get out to practice because of the crime rate and illegal border crossings bringing in who knows what and the consequences that will bring to my family and area. Will we be safe in the coming years? If you go by the number of firearms sold a month for the last +3 years many think their security is in their hands only. Or is their a bigger more serious national problem the populous is feeling?

I’m in an area of Florida that has traditionally been considered a redneck backwater, but over the last 10 years or so has exploded into a fancy overpopulated suburb of a huge metro area. I see 90’s beater mudder trucks and new Aston Martins in my Publix parking lot, and everything in between.

I hear shooting probably 3 times a week from my house.

Brother William,
I believe that the current state of affairs is Grim.
The country WILL survive whatever comes but until
we bring the usurpers to Justice many an Innocent and Warrior
will die. In my younger days I was told to look left and right of you.
Those people, you’re Brothers and Sisters may not be there when the
“defication is about to impact the indoor weather enhancer?”
(I love that line–Thank you)… It’s just a cold hard fact.) The Enemy has
‘Stacked the deck’ with THREATS against us. Virus’s , Mobs, Foreign INVADERS
there is a mixed fruit pudding (said on purpose) by the big guy to wage WAR on America’s citizenry.
The simple fact is when you stir the KAKA and you’re own people are rioting against us
for a KNOW TERRORIST Group bent on killing us Infidels we are on ground never experienced
before. When you have TROLL’s Infiltrating (or trying to) every organization (yes even HERE
on USCCA) this is Socialism/marxism on a grand scale. When you suspect your own the enemy is doing a great job to weaken us even before the first shot is fired in anger. When you have MOB’S daring us to throw the first punch! the Battle is being waged and the Sheep will side with the ‘victim’ $hit stirrers.
Look what happened w/ Kyle R and the Anti-Phucks. They attacked HIM and he almost lost his FREEDOM.
This is textbook 101 Elite’s controlling the narrative.
What you (and I) hear is the People clearing their throats for what is about to happen. They know it,
You know it, and a lot of us know it. People can deny, stick their head in the sand, say 'That will never happen—cooler heads will prevail…Not with this bunch.
Anarchy will happen.

Act Accordingly.

I agree the nation will survive but will it be all one nation? I honestly don’t think our nation will still be one. I’m of the opinion that it will be 3-5 different countries.

How many will run to Canada or some other country? How many will just possy out? Now Maryland is wanting to change the name of a school from Francis Scott Key to something else undecided. We’re letting the left erase our history and culture to we are nothing special. If someone said that back when you and I were young the person saying it would learn real quick not to say it again.

I despise the direction that the left is pushing us and most conservatives just sit there drinking a beer watching NASCAR or NFL.

My neighborhood is surrounded by forest service land so I hear shooting pretty regularly. We have lots of hunting seasons around here so a lot of it is hunting related, practice for hunting or just for recreation. For me and I suspect many others shooting is a fun activity that also can help a person train for self, family and neighbor defense situations.

The people pouring across the border are not the primary concern for me. They are a symptom of the problem of global corruption and failing economic systems. That problem is a significant concern for me because it pretty much always leads to food and resource shortages, increased crime, the rise of despots, military conflicts and the collapse of nations. Even with a closed border those problems are only going to continue to grow until things fall apart and those that survive are left to pick up the pieces and start all over again.

One of the ways you can tell that you live in rural America is that you can shoot a firearm on your property and the police do not appear.

Usually lots of shooting during dove season.
This year, not so much.
It’s curious.

A Lot of this is simple distraction, (i.e: the name changes, statues toppling etc. 'george floyd plaza for God’s sakes!) I say whatever. All this $hit will be straightened out once the cordite clears. Once the 'evil do’ers are brought before the Tribunals and the sentences carried out, remember who sided w/ the enemy.
It is a simple rule. France did it after WW2. they were in the $hit, They gave up Paris to the nazi’s practically without a fight. Their ‘RESISTANCE’ fought on openly and underground. And when the dust settled people were rounded up and dealt with. that to shall happen here.
In the mean time we need to stay safe. We need to know who are friends (and enemies are)
We need to KNOW who is at the Holiday dinner table. I am NOT saying be PARANOID. Just be cautious, Be careful, be aware. When being amongst Holiday reveler’s be on alert. I don’t/won’t do Mall’s, Public arenas, large crowds. that’s not me anymore. But at work, I use discernment, I profile, I am careful. I want to go home at the end of the day without more holes than God gave me originally.
Celebrate, partake, Enjoy. Have some fun, laugh but head on a swivel.

happy holiday’s My friends
gotta run and do a Craft show
(Sister sells Crochet toys and clothes, I sell handmade paracord Bracelets and ‘Skull Jewelry’!)
I need to pay the last Ammo order and .357 purchase ahead of Credova’s time frame :rofl:)

I went dove hunting a few times. Don’t see the return of meat vs time/money invested I liked. All ya get is the breast add a jalapeño wrap in bacon and grill. You need at least 20 of those to feed a family and damn those birds can be hard to hit sometimes. I guess that’s why they call it a sport. If you never missed where would be the challenge.

Where I live, it’s hard sometimes to know if it’s guns or fireworks going off. Both are prolific.

I hear guns being shot where I work on about a weekly basis as well. One day I went to find out where the gun shots were coming from. (Wanted to make sure it wasn’t on work property of about 150 acres.). Found the “shooter”. It’s a local cop practicing in his back yard with his AR. North of us another guy has an outdoor range.

I live in down town SLC. I occasionally hear gun fire but I doubt it’s people that are too concerned about any laws.

We don’t have any problem shooting on private proprieties on Chicago Suburbs. I don’t know, perhaps if this is because we do this out of Cook County?
Neighbors and local Police are OK with gunshot sounds.

When I go to my son in laws, People are shooting all the time. Unfortunately, someone bought the track of wooded land behind their house and built on it, now we can’t shoot anymore. I live in the city and sometimes hear shots, as there is a shooting every couple of days.

I’m in western KY and I hear gunfire a couple times a week. I don’t shoot for practice or training on my own property because the municipal airport is right behind me. Not technically illegal, but it could become an issue. One day I may build a berm.
