May be getting a job transfer there. Seems nice enough. Austin is a bit...too young and liberal.

Yeah, Austin sucks. San Antonio is much better for someone like YOU. Take the transfer and get the hell out.

I much prefer San Antonio. Austin has it's good points, but conservative (government) sure isn't one of them.

Yes, please, get out. We have to make room for all the liberals we're importing from Kalifornia!!!

I've been in SA for 14 years now....it's a great city. Cost of living is low (have you priced houses in Austin lately?). If they ever get the I-10/410 interchange done...it'll be a piece of cake to get around....I-35 between SA and Austin REALLY stinks (I try to avoid driving to Austin just for that reason).

There's a SAXET gun show the first weekend of every month.

And...we have the SPURS!

Still waiting on that move. May not happen.

Actually, I do like Austin a lot. I could live here too. Between the communes and the ultra-conservative Baptist churches there are a lot to choose from.

San Antonio is a *great* town to live in. For shooters there's lots of places to shoot and all different types of shooting (clay targets, tactical & high power rifle, pistols, 3-gun, etc.), easy access to plenty more in the surrounding area, at least one gun show every month (often more), easy driving to other shows in the area, etc.

For non-shooters there's great shopping, tons of amusements, millions of great restaurants & shows, the rodeo, pro basketball & baseball, tremendous cultural diversity (not just Mexican), etc., etc. Cost of living is totally reasonable and very few liberals ;) If you can't live without them, Austin is an hour away, the coast is 2 hours, Houston is 3 hours and DFW is barely more than 4.

Except for the panhandle I've lived in most other major areas of Texas for various periods and I honestly like San Antonio the best of all. By far the best weather in the state. Perfect balance between big city hassles (nothing like DFW & Houston) and small town ambience.

As a Los Angeles transplant I feel I know I'm talking about. I know, I know.... All I can say is I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could, and San Antonio is the best place I could have landed. Come on down!
