Greetings ladies and gents, This is my first post. Just registered today after my wife finally broke and has agreed to start planning our exit from Kommiefornia. I've been working on her for the last couple years and she has finally agreed that it's time to go. We're both sick of the taxes, paternal laws, pollution, crime, overcrowding, urban sprawl, sense of entitlement, and every thing else that come with this place. So now that it's time to start planning our exit, I figured, I'd register in a few forums so I could start getting some intel on the area(s) that we are considering and educate myself on the gun and hunting laws of what will be our new home. I'm a USMC combat vet from the IQ campaigns and now work in the wireless industry as a field technician for a price maker in the industry, wife is a medical professional. We both hold graduate degrees and have a young family with young and middle age children. Anyone in the family that can hold and operate a gun safely, knows how to and the younger ones are chomping at the bit to be able to fire the crickets. I look forward to becoming part of this community and learning all that I can about the 2A climate in the PNW.
