    So, now a beggar has raised it to a new level !! This was only at 7pm !

    Makes me want to stick to my usual response of ignoring the request, but puts me on high alert at 7-11 stores. Many beggars there, and quite a few shootings there recently.

    7-11 after dark? Why in the hell would anyone make a run to 7-11 after dark KNOWING the potential for altercations in the first place. Around here, I see very few or no vehicles/customers in those stores after dark. That's like visiting an atm after dark IMO.

    And in my own circumstance, if I'd been shot and viable enough to drive myself to a hospital, someone would have to call a morgue truck for the person who shot me. Leaving me viable enough to drive away, that turd is going to ambient temp before emergency services arrive.

    Have you never had a late night craving for one of their cheeseburger hotdogs?

    I’ve stayed away from convenience stores after dark for years now..... I’d hate to waste my expensive SD ammo on the perps that hang out there at night.

    I don't do convenience stores at night either and have trained my family to do the same.

    Last time I was in a 7-11 was, hmm, at least 15 years ago since I moved to Az. They have NOTHING I need and little I'd want or couldn't get elsewhere

    I visit the 7/11 at Federal and Taft street each Saturday morning at 6:00AM for cash back for the laundry across the street.
    Street activity is winding down at that hour so a few hookers and beggers.
