Walt, I was looking at WV several months ago. Some of the areas have what I consider to be extortionate prices. I was also shocked at some places that appear to have subdivisions in unlikely places. I think some of them are aimed at the DC commuters or investors. Ten or so years ago I was coming east on I66 west of Winchester very early one morning and it looked like the whole world was maybe 3-5 miles behind me, headed for DC.
It can get complicated if you're looking for places with reasonable access to good medical care. I've noted that Texas, Nevada and PA don't tax retirement income. I'm not going to Nevada. There are some others but they have "issues".
IF you have at least 2500.oo disposable income per month, may I suggest CAMP COUNTY, TX, especially if you are a fisherman or hunter??
(I'm from Camp County/Pittsburg BUT now reside in The Alamo City.)
Fwiw, you can buy several NICE 3-4 BR, 2 BA homes in Pittsburg for <100K each.
I PREDICT that the next WORLD'S RECORD BLACK BASS will come out of our county & I once took a 30# fork-tail cat from Bob Sandlin there.
(BIG bass out of Welch Lake & Lake Bob Sandlin are so commonplace, that you don't even get your name printed in THE PITTSBURG GAZETTE unless your Bass exceeds 15 pounds.)
I'm convinced that a record-breaking bass was caught in 2017 on a "set hook" & a live 3/4 pound Bluegill for bait, which doesn't qualify for the World's record. = A SGT in the TX Game Wardens said, "That breaks the record for sure", until he was told how it was caught.
"Set Hook" aka trotline is a favorite way to catfish in Texas. I know some idiots prefer noodling but you never know if there's a butch of water moccasins just waiting to bite in that hole. Camp County/Pittsburg would be a great choice for fishermen and pretty good for hunters. You like big cities and restaurants? Your about 2 hours East of the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex via I-30.
THAT particular set-hook was a piece of heavy monofilament with a 1/0 treble hook, sinker, toy balloon for a float & tied to a long, limber, piece of switch-cane, driven into the lake's bottom, in about 6 foot of water. = Tony B_________________ said that he was looking to catch a BIG Blue Cat & "got quite a surprise".
Btw, she was RELEASED back into Welch Lake, as bass that big are POOR to eat.
This ranking for gun-friendliness currently has VA at 31, with WV at 15 and Marxland at 44. By this time next year (or even within a few months), if the Dims do everything Governor Blackface wants to do, they could actually drop below Marxland!
I have no issue with going after gun smugglers, by all means.
The combination of "We'll let crooks out again and again to keep crime spiking while going after dealers" has a very bad and even predictable ring.
I am all for catching smugglers. Harassing regular dealers, not so much.
Not sure if this will stand, there is still the whole Court and the Supreme Court down the pike, but this is an interesting one.
The Ninth Circuit just had a Three Judge Panel rule that California Magazine Capacity restrictions are Unconstitutional.
Makes me wonder if it has an immediate...
New York's State Attorney General has moved to dissolve the NRA, based on accusations of fiscal mismanagement.
Addendum, this thread...
This guy is selling mugs with 20 % of the proceeds going to fight Gubner Coonman's gun grab here in Virginia.
I know all of us need yet -another- coffee mug, let alone a 20 dollar one but if you feel so inclined, here's a link.
I'm in for a couple.
