    Yeah...I certainly do. However with all the uber-liberals here in Olympia, WA . I am wondering about here.

    It DEFINATELY is easier to get CCW though!

    I grew up in Colorado and never would believe that I would have settled in Oklahoma. I thought Oklahoma was for those that didn't know any better. I love the freedom here in this hot part of the country. Land is less expensive then I could find anywhere else and it's a good place to raise children. When we moved here from being stationed in Germany in 1991 we purchased a home on 20 acres and soon purchased 400 acres too. I can build anything I want on it without permits and I love it. I've got a bench rest right outside my front door. I plan on staying here until I die. I spent a few years outside the US (we called it the World) living in England and Germany. I never wanted to go back. While over there I went to France (never again), Switzerland, Australia, Belgium, Luxemburg and a few others. Nothing compares with the freedoms we have here and I always looked forward to coming home. When I came home at the end of Desert Storm the welcome brought tears to my eyes. My sister lived in Mexico for many years and always couldn't understand why I wouldn't come down to visit. The wouldn't trust me with a handgun so I don't trust them with my body or family. The same goes for Canada too. I used to want to go hunting there but no more.
