WOW, that's really....really free. Almost too free if there is such a thing. (just kidding)

This is what I'm talking about.

Yea, that is all well and good, but aren't you required to wear a cowboy hat and boots in Wyoming?

Wyoming! Open carry is legal, CCW without a permit for residents, can still get a CCW permit to carry in many other states. You can buy a gun with no background check if you show a CCW license. Everyone here hunts, so everyone has guns and is comfortable around them. We're one of the most conservative states in the union, with one of the lowest unemployment rates, and to top it all off, no state taxes!

Only one problem with Wyoming, the wind. Many people can't stomach it. In fact, we have 75 mph gust with 50 mph sustained winds right this minute. Last week we hit 90+ mph winds.

I agree with Durangokid about Arizona, very gun friendly and no CCW permit necessary for competent law abiding citizens. Open carry friendly too. Lots of BLM and other public land. I lived there almost 30 years, up until 1999.

And Tikki, it's got a common border with your state, you're just on the wrong side!

Idaho is very good too. You do need a CCW permit but not hard to get if you have a DD214 or take a CCW class. The Ada County (Idaho's most populous county) Sheriff has a free class people can take to qualify. Again lots of public land to shoot on and no legal waiting period for guns.

Too bad Idaho is not a free state. You have to have the LEOs permission to carry concealed weapons. You must attend a class for a citizen to carry concealed in his own local.You also must have a hunting license to shoot varmints etc. In Wyoming no permits needed to carry a field or to shoot varmints. You fellows need to join the other free states.

I didn't have to take a class for CCW in Idaho, just my DD214.

And a couple things Idaho has over Wyoming, some people and less cold wind.

One thing I can guarentee is that MD is worse. We can't even have more than 3 rounds in the tube of a shotgun without special permission. CCW? Forget it.

Never Forget.

It would be nice to add Idaho and Texas to the list of Free States. I hope the movement is at work in both states.
