    here if you value our 2nd...

    Alaska, Idaho, Texas and if you need a job, N. Dakota.

    Just my opinion....

    We have BIG white tails here in Iowa, shall issue, and the pheasants are going to make a comeback if the mild winter holds on. Good luck affording ground. Subsidized corn ethanol has wacked out the land markets - $17000+ per acre for farm ground! Don't get me started on the commodities fuel/food markets, but I digress.

    I'll die here.
    Lol but actually NH is the safest place in America :) despite all the garbage that flows over from MA we manage to have very low crime rates.

    Check out the Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the 50 States from the NRA Store. Lots of good information and gives an overall gun friendly rating for each state.

    Not IL or CA. FL, GA, AL, MS, MO, AR, OK, LA, KS, NE, ND, SD, WY, ID, MT, AZ, NV, TX all come to mind. It depends on what weather you enjoy and what employment or business opportunities you are seeking.

    Missouri is gun-friendly.

    But stay as far away from St. Louis as you can.

    From up north too....found SC during my travels and decided to make it home. Low home prices, nice weather, a subtle change of season, low taxes, a place where guns dont send people screaming, a govt that leaves you alone mostly.

    Just move next door to PA!

    We have great gun laws, decent climate, you don't have to worry about too many natural disasters, not too many venomous creatures, good hospitals, good fishing.... why haven't you yet?

    - You are free to enjoy the liberty provided by the 2nd Amendment.
    - You are free to use your firearms to protect yourself and to use for recreation (shooting).

    Maybe, this had been asked before. Pls. point me to that thread. If anyone responds, it would be nice to see a short why your state is nice to move to. Thanks.

    Many things play into a "where to move" discussion. How old are you, retired or not? Employment, weather, your personal financial situation, location of family, cost of living, cost of moving, etc. are all factors. Taxes can vary dramatically from state to state. And of course your 2nd A desires. Don't make your decision in haste.

    I'd skip North Idaho. We are very gun friendly here and you only need a CWP for inside incorporated city limits. however they're are no jobs that pay well up here. The only jobs where you will make a living wage is if you're an officer, firefighter, doctor or lawyer. Then there's a lot of trash that comes in from Spokane. There is something in the news about a shooting, stabbing, or bomb threat, robberies and assaults coming from that city. I feel Kandahar is actually safer.

    Texas was nice but it was too hot and there's not a lot of public land or hiking trails and no snow. East Texas was nice but it was too flat to. The food and culture and music (Texas Country mix of country, rock and blues. Listen to older Pat Green and Cory Morrow to name a few.) are great. There is also fresh Blue Bell ice cream and fresh Shiner Bock.

    With all that said we're trying to figure out how to get to New Hampshire. It looks like its going to be too expensive and lacking in jobs. I just like the fact that I'll be 6 to 8 hours away from CT where I have land that has been passed down since 1900. The other downside of New Hampshire is affordable land. I also don't like how after 2 years someone is trying to get their Stand Your Ground law repealed and the fact that I can't have tint on the driver's and passenger's door windows. Doesn't sound like a big deal but it is to me. I like the privacy and shade.

    Please don't listen to Spencer or Kukla. Arizona is a horrible place. It's infested with rattlesnakes and snowbirds, and even worse, Californian's.

    The fact that you can carry a gun without needing anyone's permission should not sway you. Nor should the skiiing or the nations most visited national park, or the Colorado river, flanked by numerous casinos. Sedona is truly a horrible place, there are liberal artists scattered in among the red rock scenery, and OMG, John McCain lives there.

    I love where I am at in KY, but 20 miles from TN.. yet I am a farm girl yet likes to be in town with in 30 mins.. So since we farm land it not and issue to shoot but I can been down down Nashville in 1hr 30. I don't dig TN for the 9.5% tax and tax on food where Ky is 6% and no tax on food.. but ky has a state income

    I am 1hr from Land between the lakes, even if you can't carry you can hunt, if you go north of me the mother of all gun shops (imo) is right at Owensboro Ky. Then the best reason for KY is the bourbon! I told DH (he was Army at the time, I would never move to Misery aka Northern MO) He saw what I was saying when he got out and started looking for real world jobs.
