    I am from brooklyn but I live in west palm beach. (florida is pretty gun friendly) it just seems like everyone I talk to lives in like country type places. (that might sound wrong) also all the guns nuts I know are like country boys.

    us urbanites love guns just as much, hell i wouldn't put up with my counties stupid rules for gun ranges if i didn't love shooting. i live in a county next to dc that prevents public ranges from operating all ranges have to be private member only events, which means you pay a yearly due just to be allowed to step on the range.

    There is alot of hill country, and scrub brush around the Austin, San Antonio, Texas area so don't let pictures fool you. You can drive 10 minutes outside any of these two cities and seem like your in the hills, or in rattler country.

    Born native of Washington D.C. here. Although for most of my life I've lived in Montgomery Country just north of D.C. Only time away was while serving in the army. As much as I sometimes curse The Peoples Republik Of Maryland, I'ver tried to live other places, just kept moving back because I missed the place. I've lived in San Antonio Texas, Trinidad Colorado, but it just didn't take.

    Raised in southwest Missouri, but now living in suburban Houston. With a ranch in Llano, Texas. So I guess that means we're both.

    Middle of nowhere with no houses for over a quarter mile. I would hate living in a city, too many left wing ati-gun people.

    I grew up in Detroit and have lived in several large cities, but I prefer living outside city limits.

    Right here in Nashville, Tn. My gun club is just 1/4 hour from the house. We also have 20 acres in Lebanon...35 miles east of home. Most of my friends are shooters, too.

    I live in the seventh largest city in the U.S. (San Antonio). Many people here live in the fourth largest (Houston).

    Yep, all the big Texas cities have large shooting communities. It helps to live in a state with complete preemption of firearms laws so even if the local government is anti-gun their hands are tied by state law.
