This is a discussion on States to Retire In? (dupes combined) within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Interesting. I'm sure they get you some other way. High road tax, property tax, $300 to register a vehicle, etc....

    Welcome to the Bluegrass State, where we have fast women and beautiful horses. C'mon home to KY.

    You've read the rest, now come home to the best.

    Mississippi Gulf Coast.

    Great weather (no need to shovel sunshine in the winter), outstanding recreational opportunities, superb educational facillities, home of Keesler AFB and Naval Construction Batallion Center (seabees), excellent medical care and Mississippi is a shall-issue state with the Castle Doctrine.



    Did I mention world class casino gaming?

    Uh, hello? Hurricanes? Didn't Biloxi get slammed by Katrina in the not too distant past?

    These gentlement weren't lying. Great state to live in. One of the top 10 imo for carry laws. Easy.

    If I was to move though, I'd really look at Vermont or Alaska just because of how they view carry. Alabama would be a distant third. I really liked the Birmingham area. Although its a bit too hot.

    Vermont may have no restrictions, and that is fine if a person intends to stay at home. Although Vermont is the 2nd largest of the six New England states, and ranks 43rd in size among the 50 states, the size of Vermont is smaller of than many of Texas 254 counties. Also, Texas has the gun-friendly neighbors of New Mexico Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, which states are also adjacent to other gun-friendly states.

    Yes, we did. It's been a tough two years. But hurricanes have a very cleansing effect. Biloxi, and the rest of the Gulf Coast, is coming back better than ever.

    Keep in mind that we only have to take a real swim about once every 30 years. Besides, there are many, many areas of the Coast unaffected by storm surge.

    One drive along that beach, with the sun shining over the water, the sand beach and the great weather, and it's easy to understand why people fall in love with the Gulf Coast.

    When Minnesota is digging out around mid-January, many of our northern neighbors will be down here teeing off on the course, playing blackjack or scarfing down fresh seafood.

    At least with a hurricane, unlike a firestorm or earthquake, we get 48 hours notice!

    +1 for me...

    Born and lived in Florida most of my life. Love it. And what Lance said about property is totally correct. And it’s allot cheaper on insurance too.

    Yes, but I bought my house for $30,000 and my property taxes are $59.50/mo. My mortgage payment with taxes and insurance paid through escrow is $320.65/mo. I can deal with the cold and snow for that. I bet you paid more for your vehicle than I did my house.

    If you like winter sports and want a gun friendly state you need to look at Wyoming. Montana is beautiful but the western part of the state is getting more liberal by the day. The north western part of Wyoming in the Yellowstone / Jackson area is also best avoided for the same reason.

    No replies for Nevada? North eastern NV is the spot I'm considering for retirement. Decent gun laws, lower property values, low/no taxes, wide open country, not too hot, doesn't snow a lot... I don't mind cold, but I sure hate being trapped in the house by snow and ice. I've never lived there, but I've visited a few times, and it seems nearly perfect to me.

    I'm in Missouri. Been here most of my life. Can't imagine why anyone would want to retire here. Too hot during the summer, too cold during the winter, KC and STL run the state from the edges... I guess the ozarks are kinda nice, for a month in the spring and fall.
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    Ain't it the truth. Don't come to Montana. We have enough people as it is. I mean we're already crowding 6.2 people into every square mile.

    We have State income tax. We have property tax. Municipalities can levy sales taxes. We have a legislature controlled by the democrats, and a democrat Governor (who is currently basking in Tampa, Florida, attending an "energy summit"). The Governor's dog is more well known than his wife.

    We don't have a Castle Doctrine. We can't carry concealed in bars, banks, gov't buildings and on trains.

    We have two seasons, winter and construction. One of them is colder than hades.

    We're really good friends with our neighbors to the north, the Canucks. They send us arctic air, mad cows and cheap softwood lumber. We send them...well, nothing, come to think of it.



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
