    No one has said New Hampshire? I thought it was just recently named one of the top five retirement states....

    No state taxes....yeah semi-high property tax, but if you don't have kids you can pick a city that don't have the best schools and taxes will be lower.

    Hey, it's better than Illinois and Wisconsin, but not by much.

    No income tax. No state sales tax. However, municipalities can enact one. Anchorage doesn't have one yet, but they keep bringing it up on the ballot.

    Not really. There is no estate tax, no road tax, property taxes are not too bad ($1,163 in municipalities, excluding oil & gas properties). I think it cost me $100 or $110 to register my pickup for 2 years.

    Downsides:
    Cost of living--Obviously, the further you are from civilization, the more it costs. (Most of the stuff you need to live has to be shipped in.)

    Cold--Varies in different areas. We moved there from Abilene, TX and didn't think the Anchorage basin was that bad in the winter. Fairbanks is a whole different animal. It's been said by more than one person that you live in AK until you get tired of the winters.

    Distance--Family and friends are a long plane ride away. Getting your junk there (without your job paying for it) would be a hassle.

    We'd go back in a heartbeat, but maybe not for retirement.

    Hope this helps,
    Herk

    I'm not so sure being allowed to carry a weapon in a bar is in any way positive...
    Texas is the place to be...
    Texas also has vehicle carry w/out permit, cost of living is low, property is low(especially rural Texas), we'll secede before we let the commy demo's take our guns, and no state income tax...
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    The mountain west is about as gun-friendly as you're going to find in America. Castle doctrine pretty much everywhere, CCW's are all shall-issue, open-carry is legal, low tax base, lots of wide open spaces. If I were in your position, I'd be looking at AZ, NV, UT, WY, ID, MT, Colorado and New Mexico are OK, but tend on the more liberal side of the political climate despite having decent gun laws.

    WA and OR are both pretty good too with a ton of geographical diversity. If you want the coast, mountains, desert, rolling plains you can find a part of the state that has it.

    Oklahoma has castle doctrine, Stand your ground, Shall Issue and no obnoxious state laws about guns. State has preemption about any firearms laws Class III/NFA ok. Low cost of living and even our democrats are for the most part slightly to the right of Reagan. and we have some very tough anti-illegal immigrant laws. So I'd suggest Texas since we got enough "foreigners" here now.

    +1 for my state of Colorado!! We can carry in any University that doesn't expell you (CSU for now).

Also, Texas has the gun-friendly neighbors of New Mexico Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, which states are also adjacent to other gun-friendly states.

    Texas welcomes you![As long as you are not swimming across the Rio Grande].
    Texas doesn't allow open carry or carry in bars.

    KY is my home state(Greenup Co.) but it does allow carry in any est. that makes >51% income from alcohol. How do I know what their cash flow statement says?????

"Last YR we got over a thousand bucks per person last yr" .. you dont need a CCW to carry concealed. no state tax, cost of living is ok. Houses are cheep in the rule. vehicle reg. was $200.00 for my 2006 SUV for 2 yrs. + you said you like the cold. And the view is WOW I LOVE IT!!! SO why would you not want to live in Alaska??

    Had to get out the vote for New Mexico, Land of Entrapment. Great for retirement, CCW except bars, Govt. buildings. Open carry otherwise, and your vehicle is your private property. You can carry what you want in it. Castle Doctrine missed passage last year, but will be up again this year, anyway, local PD told my dad when he started his business, "if you shoot 'em outside, drag 'em back inside". Golf year round, snow skiing if you wish. Decent fishing, both warm and cold water. Mountains, desert....but it's a dry heat.

    That would be nice. It's generaly interpreted to be places that are not bars basically. Places like Applebees are okay.
