Wow, I didn't expect such a range of responses. I guess you guys don't
have anything to do over the weekend... :)
I have a very small experience with guns. My father used to let me
target shoot his rifle, and I fired his handgun a couple of times.
This was when I was a teenager, so it's been a while.
Well, I talked to our property manager, and luckily the tenants came
back and took all their stuff, so I don't have to worry about it. I
think they were dealing in pot. Pot is very common in the rio grande
valley because it's pretty cheap. (My students were incredulous when I
once mentioned that I'd never seen the stuff and probably wouldn't
recognize the smell if one of them brought some.) I would think if
they were doing anything serious like meth, the police would have been
Call me prejudiced, but my impression of the valley and its
inhabitants is that there's a high probablity of a criminal of one
sort or another (gang, drug dealer, illegal, etc) shopping for a good
deal on a weapon by looking in the classified or in a pawn shop.
Granted, I don't have any statistics, so what do I know, just a gut
feeling. Hunting is very common, but I don't know how common it is to
have handguns there.
Well, we have a vacancy now... 2BR 1BA, duplex, fenced yard, central
AC, garage. $550/mo no pets. :)
