    I got up a bit earlier than usual, and just now....I heard what sounded like a gun shot.

    Have you ever heard what sounded what appeared to be a gun shot??
    What thoughts ran thru your mind?? (if any) ~LoL~

    Country folk prolly don't pay it no mind, hunters maybe (??)......or other stuff.
    But I live in the city.....IN the middle of the city.......hospital over there --->
    Airport that-a-way ~~~~
    The interstate 1 mile down that way <---------

    It's not a sound we hear often......or at least, I never have, since I have been living here. I think...wonder if some looney tune has gotten pissed at their spouse or live-in.

    Yes I've heard a few gunshots. The thought in my head after hearing it "I hope a bullet doesn't fly through the window next".

    Years ago, I lived downtown in a lower-income neighborhood, a coupla blocks up the street from a corner crowded with bars and whore houses... it wasn't uncommon to hear gunshots in the wee hours of the morning... over the years that I lived there, I found a coupla holes in the side of my house from stray bullets... and, one time when I forgot to take my car off the street for the night, I found a bullet hole in my car the next morning...

    Out here where I live, it's nothing unusual- especially this time of year, plus there's a gun store/range about 1 mile away, lol.
