    If I lived in the suburbs I would know where the front door is and few other places from
    the basement in case I had to retreat and shoot through the floor. A cheap battery powered
    camera and tv might be a good idea too. Might want to look at that target

    I live in the suburbs, and noone has basements or attics. wish we did. Still need a camera, though. Crime is up, even in nice neighborhoods like mine

    I always know where my front door is.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    I don't live in the suburbs, but if I did I would move immediately out to the country.

    Sorry, cities give me the willies.

    I would love to be in the country. We plan to be eventually. But sometimes family situations make it next to impossible to move.

    In the meantime, I prep best I can and can go quite quickly and quietly through my house, in the dark if necessary.

    Suburbs without water and electricity or the fuel to get back and forth from (shtf) would quickly become a nightmare. It really doesn't matter where you live it is always a good idea to have a feel for the lay out of the house or apartment.

    I have a natural tendency to identify the blind spots and places where a person could hide. Did you know that in many instances of home invasion, the perpetrator or perpetrators were hiding in the home for several hours undetected, before making their move.

    I take care to keep myself safe while out and about, yet the danger may be hiding and waiting for me when I get home. Call me paranoid if you want but I check to make sure there are no creepers.

    We got out of the suburbs after waaaayy too many years of putting up with nonsense from suburbanites.

    BUT..If I lived in the suburbs I would put an old toilet in my front yard right next to my bottle tree just to piss off the neighbors.

    I find myself in the burbs more then on the ranch....its a bummer.

    Some things to add to burn living that are quite free.

    1). Walk your neighborhood and know where things are like city wells, homes of people with towers (com), and perhaps someone with an older then dirt vehicle in case no others work.

    2). Study your routes out of the burbs by car, bike and foot.

    3). Know the shops you would want to visit for whatever reason. Also doctors and anyone else who might be important.

    4) if you really fear gun usage know where opponents will likely take cover and how to make them regret it. Like 6 inches from a certain window panel from the door jam at 4 ft.

    I'm not sure if my place qualifies as a suburb. I live in a bedroom community of 5k for a city of a few hundred k. It's a 45 minute drive to get to down town, but a 20 mile walk. About 8-12 miles of that is open highway ( but not so open during my morning commute.)

    I live in the suburbs. I'm more worried about drunk drivers plowing into my front yard......again.
