So just last week my friend got kidnapped and robbed at a local Wal-Mart for $11, ELEVEN %^&*#[email protected] DOLLARS, and hes only 17. Ive heard about bad things going on in this city but this is just not right, hes fine and all but hes still really shaken up. Ive also had a few city officials (cops at my gym, animal control, etc.) say that in my neighbor hood, which is accually a nice little place to live and ALOT of kids live real close to me, but Ive heard there might be like an un-ghetto drug dealer (if there is such a thing) living somewhere in the area. That being said I need some advice, Ive got a Mossberg 500 12. ga, matte black with camo stock and slide, its got a 24" turkey barrel and holds like 6 rounds. My questions is keep it loaded and ready to roll or keep the gun lock on it with ammo near by? Any and all advice would help, I dont want an open ivitation for a criminal to say break in the house when no one is there and I have a locked and loaded shotgun sitting there. Ive also got a Colt .22 magnum revolver, not much but better than swinging a cut down shovel handle. Thanks to all in the basement who reply.

Im glad hes ok too, he could have easily been killed over that petty cash, hes really lucky. I live in a duplex, so there is another dwelling attached right next door, I dont have tactical training per say but I know hold to handle guns very well, and Ive been reading articles and watching videos on home defense techniques and such. I fell very confident in my abilities to protect my family and our property. Crime has gotten bad in this city and alot of citizens are arming them selves, I think my area has one of the highest crime rates in all of NC, and it may be fueled by the fact that we are the #1 in all of the state as far as unemployment goes. Do you have any other tips of advice for my situation?

I dont doubt that anymore, Im going to be much more observant when I go out now, especially to wal-mart. Oh and I forgot to mention, when he was kidnapped and robbed, it was a tuesday evening, at like 7-7:30...my point is it was broad day light.
