Hello,

I am possibly looking at moving to Oklahoma sometime in the next year. If I do move it will be to the Enid area. I am looking for gun related reasons to move there - good ranges, fair gun laws, etc. Right now the other option is Texas...

Spooky

I'm not from the OKC area so i know nothing of them, but you will be hard pressed to find a state with better gun laws, no cooling off period, limit to numbers you can buy, a shall issue state, NFA weapon friendly. Look at the law going into effect Nov 1st, that should be a good example of our gun laws. Not to mention the make my day law (1289, of the 1971 OKlahoma Firearms act). And it's only a little over an hour to Tulsa for the "Worlds largest Gun Show" that is held twice a year.

Enid is my home town. I grew up there and moved to Tulsa in 1988. I highly recommend it. If I ever have to move again I hope I get to go back there.

Altus is my home town. I've been thinking of moving back here as of late. NC is dragging me down. Also, my county sherriff won't sign over for an SBR or anything NFA related. Whereas it seems Oklahoma is more NFA friendly. And if you could open carry in Oklahoma, then that'd just be even better, as we can here in NC.

Also, what's the "make my day" ipsilateral_7 mentioned?

YUP, you got to love that....well except for the bad guys, they dont like it one damn bit, but thats just to damn bad.......

Now in reply to the origanal poster of the thread..

OK, is well OK.... I have been here for what seems like forever, close to 30 years...

I really dont know why I stay, I have no ties here, just a job I have had forever, 20 years..

But, the weather is OK, just watch it if you have allergies, they will play hell with you..

Summers can be hot and humid, winters are for the most part mild, BUT can get very cold, with ICE, us Okies like ICE in the winter, well that what we get alot of anyway..

As mentioned before, crime is not bad, cost of living is in the middle, not high, but real low either..
More rural that urban, I like that part, lots of fishing and hunting, BUT it is getting difficult to find a place to hunt without having to pay out the rear.

People are really good, for the most part, more conservitive than liberal, even the democrats seem to lean on the conservitive side, most of them anyway.

Decent roads in most part of the state, but we do have pothole monsters.....

Some of the things I dont like, TAXS, I hate paying state income tax, and then propertie tax, sales tax on everything, even food, car tax and tags, that is my biggest complaint.

Not enough hot single women, we could use more of them.....

Well there is more, but that is just a small list....

HTH....

Suprisingly I must agree most of the cops I have met were about as cool as a cop can be while doing his job. IE my main running buddy stoped for speeding 4 times (same cop i was with him every time) in one week finally the COP asked him "Are you going to force me to right u a Ticket" my partner replied "NO I'm not" cop said "ok Please slow down" all city cops have been cool. Higway patrol gave him a ticket though while we were on the prarie dog excursion. Another highway patrol gave both of us seat belt tickets wich alomost turned into a brawl. Moral of the story stay out of the way of State Troopers their is one who is a PSYCHO that patrols Durant area. Texas u will get tickets 9 out of 10 times OK about 1 out of 10. On the average Way cool cops compared to any I have dealt with when in the wrong. COMIFORNIA ticket every time. FLORIDA ticket 80%.
Fuck Im Rambling
OKIELAND is good to go Just make sure you have a JOB good paying ones arn't that easy to find.
DEER Taste much better than south texas Deer.

I disagree. I moved here in June after living in TX for 27 years. I have been pulled over MANY times by the TX hwy patrol and was let go without a ticket 6 of 7 times. The one time I was pulled over and got a ticket the officer was very polite and professional and when he saw that I also had an inspection sticker out said he was going to give me a ticket for that but he would let me go for the 71 in a 55.

I'm 100% on tickets in OK (of course there's only been one haha).

As far as gun laws, it seems like it's 6 of one and 1/2 dozen of the other. There are some things I like better about the carry laws in TX but other than that it's the same.

Best of luck in your decision.

Rob
