The simple task of checking the mail got two roommates shot by armed men at their community mail boxes.

''Tis the season.

From the UPS robbery yesterday, common denominator most likely was trapped in a small space, unarmed and even though you have a buddy with you, there are two robbers and they are armed.

No description of suspects this time.

Even though our mail box is on the street in front of our house, my wife carries her Walther PPS M2 LE when she checks it.

I refer to my pocket carried Glock 43 as my mailbox gun.

Yes, I have carried it while walking to my mailbox on the street in front of the house, hence the name :rules: .
