For this scenario, I think we should assess the threats and obstacles that you face.

Are you facing an imminent threat from urban crime now?
* if so, how bad is your local crime on a scale 1 to 10?
* if you look out your window do you see drug dealers, prostitutes or urban thugs?
* what was the most serious recent violent crime near your home?
* what was the most serious recent property crime near your home?
* can you move to a safer suburban locale?
... or...
Are you planning for a future SHTF scenario?
* what kind of S is most likely?
* how big of a fan is likely to spread the S?
* Are you planning for hurricane, earthquake, civil unrest, nuclear war, TEOTWAWKI?
* Are you living in the US or another country?

Unless you live in Detroit or South Central hiring a local gunfighter seems a little extreme. Sounds like dude should get a realtor and find a better neighborhood. ;)

While most folks want to bug out to the hinterlands, cities do offer organized police, fire, national guard, multiple medical facilities, and the political clout to get help in all but civilization ending events. Bugging in is not necessarily a bad option if you have supplies, ammunition, and a few like minded individuals to help out. Many country folk show little inclination to help refugees.
