Here’s one Freeper giving very serious thought to moving to Arizona.

Can any Freepers who know the state give recommendations for a specific town(s).

I’d like conservative (of course) and near to mountains, forests, desert, wilderness area, and/or any combination of those, and not close to any large cities.

At the moment, I’m thinking of Prescott and/or Sedona; any comments on those places?

They should be loving it right now. It’s been snowing in northern Arizona the past two nights. LOL! Thanks Algore!

I have attended gun shows in Panama City, FL. and run across a few Snowbirds. There wasn’t a lot they could buy but they seemed interested in the guns.

A while back I was paid to do a survey of campers in the Gulf Islands National Seashore. I would say at least 90% of the campers in the Winter were Canadians.

They were all with zero exceptions, pleasant to talk to. Also just about every one of them were WWII veterans. Oddly enough, the only person who refused the survey was an employee of the University I was doing the survey for.

They go to the police and show that they know how to handle firearms safely, are issued a permit, and buy a pistol and ammo.

There is no such requirement in Arizona. One does not need a PERMIT to buy firearms or ammo. Arizona Gun Laws

Many snowbirds who have property there obtain a firearm. They go to the police and show that they know how to handle firearms safely, are issued a permit, and buy a pistol and ammo. It can serve as protection, though it is very safe, or simply sport shooting, as ranges are everywhere and easily accessed.

They shouldn't even need to do that.

Arizona is now a constitutional carry state. My understanding is you can get a permit, for reciprocity purposes while travelling.

McCain obviously isn’t paying attention. He’s out there bargaining with the devil himself.
