My vote for Arizona but I can't vote when on the App. Open Carry & Cont. Carry...CCW from here is good in 35 other States, Very friendly to Vets, Yes Cars are expensive to register here(only downside) and yes we can always use More GS's!! Plus we need more Vets to shoot with and be in our "CO-OP",,..Plus At least 1 person from FTF in Az. that "has your 6" if you ever need that.....

Isn't Utah a dry state?

Otherwise, it sounds great.

Oklahoma is a definite possibility, as my wife's family lives there. Although, truth be told, I'd almost rather stay as far away as possible from her brothers as I could... Not good people... The rest of her family is great, though.

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.
Honestly, if I can't change my orders to NC, and I do have to go back to Kali, TX is probably the front-runner right now. I have to go to TX for a few months worth of training soon, so it would be cool to scope out the area in advance.

Arizona sounds great, and there's a lot of reasons why its on the list at all. Constitutional carry is wonderful. I don't know though. I'm none too fond of snakes, and I understand there's a lot there. Also, I don't like desert that much. I would want some grassy land.

Texas. varied weather depending on where you live. plus with you having family here and your wife in Oklahoma it would put you both fairly close to both depending on where you lived. compromise there! gun laws are pretty good. job situation is better than some states. lots of land available and some still reasonable in price depending on the area. and it's a big state!

I have seen 1 Snake Grand total in 20 months living here,..and it was Dead...Further up North Closer to the Canyon Has Tall pines and Grass,..not much Desert. We live right on the line between "high" Desert Country & Tall Pines......If you'd Rather have Trees, Grass & Snow,..It's an Hr. North of Me in Flagstaff...
