I lived in Washington, DC, on the 900 block of S street NW for about a
year. (A few blocks from the 930 club.) Late night gun shots were a
common occurence (every few days). Only time I was at all nerved was
when someone emptied his clip all at once. It all depends on the
neighborhood; I lived near Dupont Circle for several months and never
heard a gunshot.
