    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    good weather too!

    Colorado has good CCW laws, and a very explicit castle doctrine regarding one's living space. Within the dwelling, an intruder is presumed by statute to be a lethal threat and can be met with lethal force. I have read of instances of such shootings in the local news, and no one has been prosecuted (except one guy who shot his room-mate).

    Other good points:
    -vehicle carry is legal without a permit anywhere in the state
    -no CCW restrictions in restaurants serving alcohol, or even in bars.

    Yeah, but the entire state is still stuck with that stupid restriction of what firearms are permitted in CA. I heard of a guy paying $700 for a Kel Tec P3AT from another member in the state because they're banned from importation for not having a drop or external safety. That said, someone moving to CA can bring the pistol in and sell it in state to another member, but they cannot be ordered through a FFL.

    I guess I'll just stay in Alabama when I retire. To me, this is God's country.

    Best Retirement State

    When we moved to Texas 6 years ago, there was a pawn shop owner who had just shot and killed a BG who attempted armed robbery of his shop. The news played a tape of an officer on the scene when questioned about it by a local reporter the officer said in a good slow Texas drawl, "Well everybody knows pawnshop owners are packin!" What a refreshing a law and order (pro victim) attitude (after living in the north for many years). Of course we have good carry laws (castle doctrine), unless the exact legal langage of statute30.06 is posted in both english and spanish in one inch font with contrasting colors - you have not been legally notified that you may not carry in a particular business. Of course federal buildings, polling places, schools, etc are out of bounds - but I have not seen anyplace where I go in Fort Worth that is properly posted to hinder legal carry- though I have heard of one hospital downtown.

    Temperate weather, Housing is inexpensive as is the cost of living, No state income tax but there are higher property taxes ( however I think these drop off for senior citizens). We love it here!

    Colorado and Utah. Utah allows school carry. Colorado allows carry in bars, resturants, and no guns allow is only trespassing if you refuse to leave after you've been made.

    AZ is good, GA is a joke with their carry laws. MI is ok but we have to register our pistols, well actually "present them for safety inspection". Can only own MGs, no other NFA weaponry, which sucks (suppressors and SBRs are way cheaper).

    Choose carefully

    Since this move is based on retirement, pick a gun-friendly state with no income tax, and with good weather.

    Be real careful to find out how your out of state pension will be taxed in your new local before you move there.

    Two words: Texas!

    You know you're at home when "fire" is pronounced in three syllables.
