my guess is Texas, Florida, Arizona, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Tennessee. Plus the rest of the midsouth and midwest states. Mahigpit sa Kali and most of the east coast states.

tama ba?

Yup! You're right! It's also hard to own firearms in Massachussetts and other New England States. My brother told me that you can purchase a pistol in Tennessee, wait for the paperwork and bring home the gun (even a pistol)after an hour.

Not in California.

I guess it's every where, I would add Worldsteel, Knockdown, Steel, Bullseye, NRA Rifle , CMP, Indoor IPSC, Shotgun and the best is the 3Gun USPSA. Kung papatulan ko yung kalahati niyan, hahambalusin na ako ni misis. In short There's really a lot of shooters in this place, please note that every class of this sport is popular. One more thing,.. shooting here is not that expensive, apple to apple comparison. Even the club membership fee, I would say that mas mahal pa sa atin. Try this sa atin 8,000 pesos ang membership fee at 200 pesos ang monthly. I got to pay $150 for membership and $15 monthly fee. Sa atin mostly pistol range lang, dito may pistol, rifle, shotgun at outdoor and indoor range kana dun sa $15 mo. Yung range completo sa gamit kung wala kang dalang earmuffs meron sila disposable plugs, eye protection, may targets. I just can't beleive how can these clubs have those things just for the safety of the shooters. Yung bala dito mas murang mura, I would say any states will do. just shoot and enjoy...

In the state of Kalifornia, IPSC is as popular as ever considering the bans in hicaps and certain firearms. An IPSC match is shot every Saturday and Sunday somewhere sometime in this state.
Although in TX, there were 3 pistol/rifle ranges 5 mile radius of my house.

On the federal level, the law was not renewed. Some states have their own Assault Weapons Ban & hi-cap ban.;g

Caddies = sila sila mismo nagti-tape and set ng steel. As for brass, it's so cheap most no longer pick it up.

Big matches which are held for two days straight have "Brass Caddies". These are grade school kids or a Boy Scout Troop raising money for a common purpose. They would pick up the brass, sort them out and sell them back to the shooters for very little cost. Remember that the shooters use unfired brass in big matches therefore the buyer gets once fired brass. IIRC, during my last match I got me 500 once fired 40's for $10.00.

I still pick up my casings and other shooters casing. Yung iba magulang sa pag-tape, dinadaan sa kwento.

If I may add, these brass are usually premium brands like Starline.

Nevada is also a gun-friendly state. I bought couple of .45's in Las Vegas and once the sale transaction is done, you can bring home your gun right away. They even throw in free range time. That is, if you already have an existing gun registration card (they call it blue card) Of course they still do background check; they make a call infront of you and if your records are fine, then that's it, 30-45 minutes at the most. Same thing with a rifle. Actually, they dont even issue a blue card for rifles.

Anybody considering moving to Vegas? Housing is booming too.

Huwag ka lang maloloko sa casino at mga strip joint.

Not necessarily trure. I f you are shooting .38 super, you will pick up the brass since brass is about $ 90 per thousand.

Hey! Lets not forget about Vermont. No LTC required in order to carry a handgun. Very gun-friendly, especially for New England.

Viginia is not bad either.

Went to Vegas with friends from LA, and they were surprised that in six months' time, what used to be a desert just before you approach Las Vegas was full of housing developments. You're right! Mura ang mga bahay doon!

Tennessee is also a good state where you could own firearms. It's just approximately an hour's wait to purchase a firearm if you have a clean record. Masaya din ang mga tao doon. I got to experience their State Match in August 2004 (I still had jet lag), and the Indiana State Match which was held in a big range in Kentucky. I got to meet Henry Swartout III, whose mom is a Filipina. He sells reloading components and he is such a gentleman. He is the section coordinator of North Carolina USPSA. His company's website is www.swartout.com

Vicara, is it still a 20 day waiting period to purchase firearms in CA? What are CA legal firearms? Do they have separate features compared to the ones sold outside of CA?

10 day waiting period in CA. I just sold my mint SW 4566 for $400.00 gun stores sell them for over $700.00.

Speaking of Lost Wages, NV, this is the fastest growing city in the US. Houses are so inexpensive and jobs are plentiful. The city is running short of doctors, nurses everyone in the medical field, public works people, personnel, HR, name it they are short of it. If you see someone unemployed in LV, he or she is just lazy. BTW, there is no State income tax in NV. The only drawback I see and feel is the heat!!!!!!!.

Las Vegas can make you or break you. The heat is a given so you have to live with it. (last week was 114, today is 103)I survived one summer in Vegas; lived there April-November and to me, its not that far from the Middle East where I worked for 4 years. Its AC all over the place so its tolerable. Now if you're working outside at daytime, then thats a different story.

The housing industry has reached a plateau although many will disagree. I bought a house in 1999 and base on the latest pricing, its now like over 100% appreciation. The 2nd house was purchased in 2003 and that too has doubled its price. Too bad, because of my kind of work, I'm not enjoying any of them; they're both rentals. Every 2 months or so, i have to drive 8-9 hours to visit the city. When I was there, 4000 new residents per week were coming to Vegas. If you're interested in checking how things are going in Vegas, go here
Summerlin (http://www.summerlin.com/)

The good news: Indoor range(s) is 15-20 minutes away where you can fire pistol and rifle even a full-auto AR15/M16. There's an outdoor range 10 minutes from my house where you can shoot anything you have from .22 to .50 cal, to you heart's content. But housing developments are sprouting all over the place and one day, some folks will come up with a petition to close down the range because of its proximity to habitable location.

Jobs are plenty in all kinds of shape and form. So thats not a problem. I was lucky to work in 3 big hotels in a span of 6 months in 1999. I was into software development and if you remember the Y2K scare, you're in the right place at the right time if you're in Vegas that time. Most of the hotels in the strip were running in AS400 and with hundreds of applications that allegendly will have problem(s) with the date field comes 2000, man, I tell you, highest bidder. They gave me free airfare and hotel just to bring me into town for my initial interview. I remember while working with a group that owns Hilton and Bally's, I got a call from an HR lady from a competition who owns also couple of propeties in the strip. Straight to the point: "How much you're making there? I can offer you a better deal!"
Those were the god 'ol days but I end up where I came from after 7 months. Its not that I don't like the city anymore, in fact, its a retirement home for me when its time to say "That's it! I quit!"

If you move right now, houses are still a good deal compared to the Bay area.

The heat in Vegas is different. Nanangagat!;V It's nice to be inside (away from the casino, though)and near the buffet tables ^1 , but when you're outside, it's different just like what Vicara described.
