Default Where Should I Live ?

Ok guys, here's the deal. I get out of the Marine Corps in 2017, possibly as early as 2016. I will next more than likely be stationed in Kalifornia again. So I'm not going to be sticking around when my contract is up.

I want to hear compelling arguments for the following states. Of course, gun-friendly is a must. But I also plan on opening a gun store as my business, so pro-business is important as well. I like the idea of open carry, so that's a plus for your state if it does that. However, it's not a requirement. Oh and my wife will probably be a nurse, if that helps at all.

I'm not much interested in the weather. We can adapt to that.

I lived the first 20 years of my life in Ohio, and I still have family there. My wife and I also lived in North Carolina for about a year and a half, and we might go back. She has family in Oklahoma, and I have some family in Texas.

Here are the states we're thinking about: Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia.

Otherwise, I want to hear compelling arguments for each place.

If you think I should live somewhere not in the poll, say so and why.

I was born and raised in Georgia, lived there most of my life, but it's crowded now and has way too many yankees there. I've lived in Oklahoma for 12 years now, and I'll probably die here. Oklahoma has my vote.

It is expensive to register the cars.

Rated the most dangerous state in the country.

I'm going North Carolina.
No license required for open carry, license available for concealed. Pro gun, anti gay.
Good old God loving American state. Economy is still doing well. Low cost of living.

4. Your wife can conceal carry in the schools
5. Great skiing/snowboarding

Might I suggest a friendly Boomer Sooner? Oklahoma has open carry, great hospitals, extremely lax gun laws, one of the most stable economies in the nation, oh and one of the cheapest places to live

My vote is Texas. We are very gun friendly even though open carry hasn't passed yet it will eventually. Everyone here is friendly as long as you stay out of Houston. We have every culture you could want. From hippies down in Austin to ultra conservative out here in west Texas. Lubbock is growing like a weed and the one good out door range around here shut down so If you made it a combo gun store/out door range I'm sure it would be a hit.

So why is mine the only vote for Oklahoma? Vote, man, vote!
