Why would you move to Marion County? I live here but I am moving to Tennessee because Marion has one of the lowest economies in the country!
But one thing I will miss is the gun laws, although I dont think Tennessee's are too different. Marion county is pretty friendly to guns though.
Alot of people, LE included, support CCW permits. From my experience anyways. But of course as a rule of thumb, i dont announce it to the world. And as far as ranges go, take Dalton Wayne's advice. Private pistol ranges and go to the Range on Forest Road 88 with friends if possible.
Oh, and welcome to Marion County.
Anyone fellow Marion Country GTers wanna meet at a range one day in the next few monthes before I leave?
I thought I was the only one in Ocala that hung out on this site.
