Another thing to consider if/when you move, if it is to pursue your hobbies, is the availability of public land. At a young age most people can't buy private land to build a personal gun range. I am here in Texas thanks to Uncle Sam, and there is very little public land to go shoot. For that reason I have to drive 30 minutes every weekend and pay the range to punch paper.
That said, if you do shoot on public land, PLEASE do it SAFELY and pick up your mess.
