Trouble spots or "places to avoid"
I know this has been covered before but I haven't seen it lately or in it's own thread, so here goes...
I carry virtually every chance I get but I can't always dress out like I'm going into Mogadishu. I also try really hard to avoid places where trouble is more likely than others. Here is a brief list of places that I try to avoid based solely on my perception of safety and past news accounts.
Walk-up ATMs or any ATM after dark.
Banks on Friday.
Liquor, package and convenience stores after dark.
What other places should be avoided whenever possible?
To a much greater extent than most mechanical devices, firearms are terribly unforgiving of any overconfidence, complacency or negligence.
