Tom in NY (soon to be Tom in the Carolinas), congratulations on your retirement! I left Suffolk County in 1968 when I went in the service. I've returned several times over the years to visit family. It's not like it was when I was growing up. To make it worse, you have to have 'permission' to do almost anything - like owning guns. You will enjoy your newly recovered freedoms immensely. Other than NY, I've lived most of my life in Maine, Colorado, and Oklahoma. I have a range behind my barn. I shot on it yesterday.
