I was more than happy to move back to Montana from California. In the seven years since I've been back three times - when my father died, a year later to take care of business incidental to his death, and to help a daughter move. The guns we have not on the California DOJ approved list are very satisfying.
We did not leave CA just because of guns but because it was becoming an out of control cancer in everyone's life. Gun laws were just one symptom.
Oh, we don't need a lot of others rushing up here. We're up over 7 per square mile as it is.
