    We can try to keep this cool. A lot of thoughts, a lot of opinions . We''ll do a poll .

    There is a limit on the numbers, so others will come in.

    A sense of humor will help! :D I'll use 2 letter abbreviations for the states to save time.

    Totally hypothetical. Most of us , for so many reasons, can't budge. :scrutiny:

    The barrage is prepared. :) I think the U.S.Army can handle it. ;)

    MI seems to be pretty friendly and getting better as we go.

    I think Alaska is considered the worst by the Brady bunch, so they're probably the best.

    Anything with an F seems to be decent. Pretty sure it means fantastic.

    PA. I only chose that one because I live in it and don't know much about the laws of other states.

    In my state tho, I can have any type of firearm, pistol, rifle, suppressor, sbr, full auto, etc. It costs $20 or $25 for a conceal carry license or as my state calls it License to carry(LTC) that lasts for 5 years and no special training classes are required.

    PA is also an open carry state.

    I can build a shooting range(which I did) in my back yard in my county with proper backstops for safety.

    I posted this on the other thread you started. I chose other because you did not have PA on your poll, not sure why.

    The selections in your poll preclude about 31 states. Not sure if that was intentional or due to laziness.

    Some will be certain to take umbrage...I will try not to.

    So...if I base this strictly on my own research (which is not exhaustive) I would vote AK, VT, probably AZ...with WY and AR close behind...being that they have Constitutional Carry.

    Although, to be honest, I have not delved into these laws to see what other restrictions may be present.

    I will say that I like the current trends, and hope they continue.

    Most gun friendly? The one I live in now - ARIZONA. :neener:


    And if the firearms environment wasn't enough, compare our weather reports to New York City or Chicago.... :evil: :D

    Choosing where to live is simply not based on what the gun laws are. But generally speaking I choose a location to live based on the climate and topogaphy primarily along with taxation and job opportunities. The gun issue is secondary, but still important. Urban vs Rural, or Big City vs Small City is more important to my selection.

    That said, I would not want to live anywhere in NY, NJ, MD, MA, IL, or CA which tend to be the more restrictive states as well as higher tax states.

    IIRK, someone posted on this forum that the Blue Grass state leads the nation in back ground checks. We must be doing something right. :cool:

    Any State that requires no license and no "training" class certification.

    Me too!

    Constitutional carry and about the only restrictions are those imposed by the Feds. Just gotta get rid of those gun free killing zones.

    The polls only allow 20 choices. Not lazy. Maybe hazy! ;)

    I'm okay with VA laws, although I'm seriously considering moving to the NC coast for the fishing during my remaining days alive. VA has fair gun laws, IMO. I can carry concealed or not. VA is a "shall issue" state". I've never ever encountered a problem with L/E here regarding a gun in my vehicle, hidden or open.

    I voted KY because they amended the state constitution to preserve the rights of the citizens to include the right to hunt and fish. AZ was a close second.

    Yeah, but there's a very specific reason for that. KSP runs a new check every month on every CCDW permit holder.

    I'm happy in KY but I voted VT because no permit is needed for CCW.
