Why would they NOT retire to the USA?
Back in my day in the UK, we could still basically own firearms 'fairly' easily, - although obviously not carry concealed etc.
I bought my first 12g shotgun, - a Mossberg pump at 16 (legally,) in 1976, my first handgun, a .22/.22 magnum Ruger Single Six at 17, and my first 1911, (a Series 70 Government,) at 18, just after my 18th birthday.
I swapped the Single Six (stupid, - it was the "Made in the 200th year of American Independence" model,) for a Colt .22 Conversion unit in 1979.
1980, - I bought my 4 inch brl S&W M29. - Rebated cylinders.
Then a bunch of other stuff including a Colt AR 15 Sporter, L1A1 FAL, Ruger .308 Varminter, both 12g Winchester Models' 1897 & M12, an Ithaca M37, 1944 Lee Enfield No 4T (Sniper model,) and other less interesting guns.
Half of this stuff cannot be owned legally by private citizens in the UK anymore!
So I must ask.......why would a gun loving 'Brit' NOT want to move to the USA?
Many "welcomes" folks, and I must thank you all together.
Yes, there are stories.
All in good time.
I'm a "newbie" here, so I will go slowly.
I like to read threads and learn, and add at times when I feel that I can really help.
A post from 'apvbguy' asked about firearms laws here.
Basically, they 'suck' big time (these days.)
They were 'ok' when I moved here.
I have had Federal CCWs, and own a dozen firearms legally. - Both for 'sporting' purposes, (target shooting/IPSC,) and self defense.
But it is grim basically, compared to the USA.
We get by though. - Don't ask for details.
