I didn't have time to grab anything before heading toward the door, so I walked away after this and got the closest one, the Wife's P-22 and added 5 rounds to the half loaded mag and placed it un-chambered on safe in my pocket. I walked back to the door and turned the porch light on and watched the guy walking around for a minute. I came back to the computer for a few minutes and decided to go check out the perimeter, and as I did so, I thought of, "okay I know I'm good to carry on my property, but how about the sidewalk?". Anyway, I step out the door and there is a guy in a van on a cellphone he sits there, mumbles something on the phone starts it up and drives away.
I walk around my corner lot, just making sure there was nothing messed with, but I tried to stay off the Sidewalk just in case....
I guess my biggest question about the concealing of a firearm on or around one's property is, where exactly does that end? At the sidewalk, or the street? We have our yard, then a sidewalk, followed by a strip of grass next to the street. I've heard many times that the sidewalk is the city's property and responsibility(unless it needs replaced, or the snow removed. ) So to me I would think that's where it ends.
I'm still playing it safe and checking the window every few minutes and still have the gun ready to go.
I have my C9 loaded with Hollow points, I just don't want to wake the wife over something unless it's big, as it's in the dresser by my side of the bed.(no kids.)
