Last night I heard four shots not so nearby as to go hot, but close enough for me to call 911 at 11:14 pm. Gave them my address for reference because I know they hate vague descriptions. Arrival time was 11:22 pm.
I know that since I did not declared I heard/saw people bleeding/screaming, it is not as urgent as SHTF call. So let’s make best case scenario 4 minutes and worst case 8 minutes. Either way is a long frigging time you have to be on your own helpless.

PS: Some of my friends in Facebook are amazed at how fat the response time was.
