You're watching the ball drop on TV half awake, then you hear about 6 gunshots. You jump to the floor to cover, then you remember, "Oh, yeah it's New Years!" lol I'm a dork.

Well that would be the country for me. We all shoot off shot guns at midnight on New Years around these parts :)

I don't live in "the hood", I live in the sticks, tiny upstate ny farming town, and I would still drop if I heard gunshots outside my house. You don't have to live in the hood to not want to get shot. Luckily the jerks stopped firing them off a few years back when a stray bullet hit a kid playing with sparklers in his yard, luckily he lived, but the police said anyone else starts shooting off on new years and they will have them in lock up before they can blink.

Lol I think that's everywhere. People do it in the hood and in the country. I live in the city and its common to hear that on nye. My friends parents live in the sticks and its tradition for them to shoot up in the air at midnight.

Oh, lol. I am in a medium-sized city. Usually if I heard gunshots right out my window, then there would be trouble lol. I grew up on the good part of town, but never in the country. It must be nice though.

You know you're in the hood when you're used to gunshots. You don't even flinch anymore. Yep

It is nice..its usually quiet but one night a year the rednecks come out to play lol. Most everyone around here shoots blanks off so there's no stray bullets flying around.
