    Are you familiar with Kentucky gun laws? Where I can find some interesting information? Any links? How about self defense and other similar law problems in Kentucky? I'm very interested. Thank you for help.

    Adam: you mentioned in another thread that you are thinking of coming to America. Are you looking at Kentucky? There have been several threads here about which state is the best, gun rights wise. I'll see if I can find them, they had lots of good info.

    Yes it's one of my favorite locations. Williamsburg exactly. If you can find this it will be very helpful. After "Poland gun laws" experience it will be like paradise for me...:)

    Adam, if you get to KY, give us a buzz. All Poles get special treatment at Knob Creek. Have you shot a 1919 off a truck?:D

    This thread discusses "The perfect state". Some good info.
    This thread was a discussion I started about Alaska. Lots of good info, esp about Alaska.

    I know there where more posted, but I'm not sure how to find them. Hope that helps. :)

    Adam, if you come to Ky, give me a yell. I would love to hear your observations about the differences in culture. I can promise you a good meal and sight seeing.:)

    Air-cooled, belt-fed machine gun. One of John Browning's designs, used to free Europe.:)

    Adam,
    I own property in Kentucky, finally bought 20 acres in Monroe County back in 1998. One of the main reasons that I bought property in Kentucky is because of the wording in Kentucky's Bill of Rights. Section 1, 7th, "The right to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State ....." While it's true that the rest of that section grants the State Legislature the lawful authority to regulate the wearing of concealed weapons, my son and I carry in the open when out and about. We also carry a copy of Constructive Notice to serve to any LEO's who might question our exercising this fundamental right. My son had an incident back in July with a Monroe County deputy, Darrell Ford who stopped, disarmed and unlawfully searched my son just because he was carrying a weapon in the open. When it was all said and done, my son got an apology from deputy Ford.

    We start in Visa Lottery this year, so few more weeks and we will now a little more. I know that nearly 50% of applications was turned down because of errors this year (first time via internet) so maybe our chances are little better. Both me and my wife send applications.

    I'm looking for free state too. Few more things that my family need is rural area and even better a small town with lot of tourists (Williamsburg is now a place where we are looking with great interest). We want a small town because we live in 2 000 000 people city. High cost of living, high rate of crime and big city is not what we want for rest of our lifes. We want to establish a little company (B&B with small shop with Polish food). We not looking for big money, just for peaceful life in small, friendly community. I was growed up in small town in East of Poland so I know how it is. Good education for our children, quite good health care (I'm cancer survivor) and decent communication (near Williamsburg is 75 interstate higway). We have a family in Chicago so it's reasonably close to visit them few times per year. It's hard to leave our lifes here (familys, friends, memorys etc.) but we want a better future for our children. We will arrive with some money in hand (something beetwen 75 and 90k$) so it could be little easier to begin new life. Sorry for my English friends.

    Adam,
    Back in 1998 I bought 20 wooded acres in Monroe County, Kentucky for $8,700, the property taxes are only $65 per year. The closest town is 12 miles away (population of 3,500), Glasgow is 25 miles away (population of 20,000), Bowling Green (a college town) is about 60 miles away (population of 45,000). Alot of tourists come to this area, various attractions all around here.

    Sounds great. We don't need a lot of acres (I think about max 3-5) but what do you think about idea of B&B in this area. Good, bad or forget? Tourists = money for us. And we want to show to all people who will visit our shop a great Polish food. Cheap, simple but very satiate...

    Adam,
    I've seen several Bed & Breakfasts around the area. Mammoth Cave Park is about 40 miles away, Dale Hollow Lake and Barren River Recreation Parks are within 30-40 miles - lots of tourists coming and going. Area Chamber of Commerce could provide you with lots of information.

    You might want to consider Southwestern Indiana as well.
    There's plenty of small communities outside of the Evansville area.
    Evansville itself has only about 120,000 people.
    Our gun laws are even better than Kentucky's as we have no training requirement for CCW and our permits are only $25 for 4 years.


    Here's some information on Evansville

    i don't live near the area but i've been through there several times and know people enrolled in the school there......

    as far as b&b goes, i guess this would be an alright location, but there really would be much better.... the area itself is wide open mountain country, and the people are wide open mountain people as well... most of the tourist would be coming from cumberland falls, and the state parks there have everything to offer...

    the town is built around cumberland college, which is a baptist school if i recall correctly, take that how you will....

    im not sure about real estate in the area because of the d.boone forest, but aside from that i'd say land is cheap, the town is built right in the cumberland river valley and is surrounded by 1500-2200 ft. peaks

    if i had to make the chioce i would consider the areas surrounding the major lakes in the south, ky, barkley, cumberland, green river, dale hollow, barren river, nolin... or go north closer to lexington, frankfort area...

    ccw here is easy, if your not a felon you're good to go... open carry is legal, and common in the country.... and best of all provate sells are AOK!!

    www.kc3.org
    there's a good place to find out what you need to know ...

    that's cumberland...

    Like Monticello, Burnside or Somerset for example...

    Thank you yesterdaysyouth it's good information. You know I'm not familiar with this area. Someone told me that both Somerset and Monticello will be ok for us.
