Ispcapt, thanks for the info, I'm not signing up as an 18 year old. I know that the chances of me being deployed is 99.9% after all we're at war. No offense to anyone here, but I started this thread asking about Missouri's gun acceptance. The only reason I was wondering was, if I choose MP school,(not set in stone yet) what would the mindset of others in the state be. I know I can't carry concealed, I just know in some states people frown on military personnel, because we all know guns kill people. On the other hand after my service, it may be a state I might think about settling down in, with my fiance. I wasn't looking for military advise, just info on the people of MO and the state of MO. Like I said before no offense to anyone and thanks for all your feedback. This thread went a way I didn't want it to go, I'm having a hard enough time deciding exactly what to do without people telling me what I shouldn't do, I'm getting ready to make a drastic change in my life. After all my original question was how gun friendly is MO, not which branch should I sign up for. Again I say this all not trying to offend anyone, I just have alot I my mind right now and the original thread I posted was looking towards the future. Thanks again all.
