    TN - Dinner at Applebee's a no-no (Opps again)
    TX and TN Private Posted locations illegal... etc

    Most other states seem to have weird "where'd that come from" prohibitions.

    - everything from Churches to Restaurants - tough to keep track of all of -em.
    I really liked TN but have never carried in Texas because I hear it it is simply a strange state to carry in (strange as in way to many rules).

They have to register their firearms and they have a limit on how much ammo they can have and have to track their range time, etc. and be prepared to show when and where the ammo they purchased was expended. He also said it is illegal for any child under 12 to handle a firearm. No hunting, no plinking, no nothing.

    tattedupboy, you seem to still be offended by my Indiana comments. The last thing I'll say on this issue is that while Indiana may in practice be 100% shall issue today, the way your laws are written would allow that to change very quickly should the political climate change. I recommend you get your lifetime permit asap and hope that the 'administrator' doesn't decide to revoke it in the future.
    I'm not worried about that happening. Indiana's permit law has worked far too well for anyone to do any tinkering with it. It's really not something I would ever lose any sleep over.

    I feel SC is a very gun friendly state. We are the only state that repealed the one handgun per month purchase law. I think VA still has it on their books. Anyone can carry a loaded weapon in their unlocked glove compartment or console of their vehicle. You can open carry while going to and from fishing. Though our reciprocity list is not as large as some other states due to some states not having training as a requirement, I personally like the training requirement. Just like having to have a hunters safety course prior to getting a hunting license an 8 hour class does answer a lot of questions that a lot of people come here to find an answer. There are a lot of do's and don'ts that prepare the first time CWP holder to carry. Plus it's only required to be taken once. I've always wondered how many people don't carry with a permit because they have no idea what the law says in states that don't require training. Don't get me wrong, I one of those that think that our Constitution gives me the right to carry without any stinking permit. I just feel that some people need training before strapping on a weapon.

  5. I'd put Missouri up there. Maybe not top 5, but top 10. Shall Issue state, open-carry friendly for the most part, can carry in glove box/console in car w/o permit, pretty large reciprocity list.

  6. Thumbs up Gun Friendly States

    Just in my experience, Louisiana and Mississippi. I've traveled the country and by far the gulf coast south is usually very gun friendly. Florida, and Texas are about the same most times. One word of caution for Florida though, as the Northeast libs move down there for retirement and winter homes, the political climate seems to be changing. If they don't watch their state voting, soon they'll be living in Jersey. As CCW laws increase and States, citizens and LEO's get used to the idea, things seem to improve. I compare the Northeast to the old Communist Soviet Union, except for maybe Vermont. :(

    I hate it too. But "on the square", I lived and worked in New York City and New Jersey for almost 2 years. The bad part is, I really like NYC. It's almost a place you love to hate, but it kinda grows on ya. Parts of Jersey were beautiful as well as upstate N.Y. It was culture shock for a southern boy, and after a while when the new wears off, and you see the draconian gun laws and the hatred toward gun people and such, you start to loose your love of the laws and government, but I still like the area and alot of the people. :o

    I would have to give Missouri my vote. They recognize all other states permit, you can carry in your vehicle without a permit, do not frown no open carry (which is good on a windy day) and if you go into a place that is posted and they catch you all they can do is ask you to leave, if you do so case closed but if you refuse then things change real fast

    Beleive it or not, obtaining a CCW in NY State is not very difficult. The problem is getting a CCW that can be used in the Five Boroughs/Counties (Brooklyn/Kings County, Queens/ Queens County, Staten Island/Richmond County, Manhatten/New York County, and Bronx/Bronx County) which the State of NY allows and has more strict "May Issues" provisions. A NY State CCW is not valid in those counties but I believe it is valid in both Long Island Counties/Nassau and Suffolk.
