    No income tax or estate tax would be my first priority.

    There's an eye opening question! Up until this point, I might've said Hawaii. But looking into their gun laws indicates I won't even be able to bring what I have.

    Northern Minnesota is sounding good right about now!

    Your right Ark.....when you consider the gun laws...it kinda changes things a little.....although here in CT they are pretty strict...so anywhere I go...other than NY, MA, or CA. I should be okay.....the reason I'm looking at PA is due to the fact that the state is tax and gun friendly

    I dunno... TX has must inform, no OC, and a bunch of restrictions on where you can carry.

    Cool

    I have worked and lived here since the late 70's and aside from the ocassional hurricane and the summer heat I can't see me moving anywhere it is not warm year around.

    The Brady Bunch list us as tied for # 5 but hopefully we can get a higher rating next year.

    No open carry yet but concealed is fine by me.

    No state income tax. Lots of golf and fishing.

    For me it's the Sunshine State.

    A breeze to carry here. No "No Guns" signs. No dumb restaurant, bar, or car restrictions. No must inform.
    No Tornado's
    No Hurricanes
    No excessive heat or humidity (except for the past 2 weeks)
    Average Winters.
    No Black Flies
    No Drought - No water rationing
    No Scorpions
    No giant cockroaches with cute non-cockroach names.
    No Poisonous Snakes
    No Fire Ants
    No Blackouts
    No Floods
    No Tsunamis
    Good farm land
    Great Rivers, Lakes, & woodlands.
    Reasonable home prices.
    No hoards of illegals.

    I could continue but, you get the gist of it. PA is a pretty decent place to live.

    Still a while until that happens, but I would like to move to Alaska a lot before that. I like winter and snow.

    I used to live in PA until I was foolish enough to move out of state . And now I regret it so badly. I miss PA sooo much

    consider Florida: no income tax, low property taxes for residents, great gun laws with reciprocity in 34 states.
