    Any score of 4 or less would be a really friendly place.

    South Dakota is one of the least restrictive states. Permitless OC (though I haven't seen anyone doing such in Rapid City), CC permit is quick, easy and cheap. No waiting, no purchase permits, we recognize all other CC permits, no state level NFA restrictions, and two ammo makers here in the Black Hills!
    Arizona has a "ZERO" score on that chart.

    Missouri.

    It took a week to obtain my CCW after all background checks and conceal carry class and application were submitted. We can also open carry and purchase guns with no waiting period whatsoever. We have the Castle law and we are able to carry openly in our cars or keep one in the glove compartment. I moved away from the Soviet Socialist Republic of California and have never looked back.

    Brady Scores By State

    Using the Brady scores (converted to gun-friendly) to settle the arguments above:

    AK 100
    AZ 100
    UT 100
    NH 94
    VT 94

    So nice try, New Englanders ... you just can't beat the Wild West for gun-friendliness.
    Not sure how VT scores 2 points for record keeping and retention since they don't even issue permits.

    I'd say that's pretty good considering that we're surrounded with no chance of escape.

    I consider the ones with Constitutional Carry (AK/VT/AZ) to be gun friendly states. The rest are just bustas.

    In NH you go to your local PD, submit a form and wait two weeks. If they don't find anything negative after two weeks they grant you a permit for CC.

    NH has CC and OC. Residents are required to go to their Local PD and apply for their Pistol and revolver license, which takes about 7 days to get. Cost is 20.00 for 5 yrs. Full auto, sbr, AOW, DD, supressors are ok to have too.
    No sales/state income tax. NICS check and you're on your way with your purchase.

    If I were to move it'd be to Vermont.

    Washington DC: They have done more to bring our 2nd amendment rights to the forefront with positive SCOTUS support then all the NRA lobbyists combined. But as to your real question I'd vote for Alaska as no permit or fee is required there as far as I know.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    I just got back from Montana, yeah pretty much about as gun friendly as I have ever seen. I am moving to Missoula area, probably near LOLO, in about 6 months to a year MAX. I cant handle Atlanta and it's massiveness anymore.

    Big cities back east have some of the slowest response times. Less liberals out west and more liberals back east is why AZ, NV, WY & UT are thought of and I'll add New Mexico to that list.

    Tangoseal: You know, Missoula is one of the liberal "hotbeds" of Montana. Beautiful area though.

    Maybe, but they were so far in the hole there was no place to go but up. They still have a long way to go. I'd put them near the bottom of the list.
