20 million dollars ? Condition is that you could not live in the USA or ever go back to the USA, but you could own and shoot any type of gun that you want. My pick - Canada, and then I'd still sneak back into the USA whenever I felt like it.

That's easy, my own. I would buy an island, declare war on the US, get my ass kicked and then apply for aid as a destitute country. Next I'd become an ally of the US and allow them to install a navy base where I would clean up selling beer and the favors of womenz to the sailors and buy another island where I would install all my cool air defence missles that the US gives me. I'd hire a German mercenary to send as my "peacekeeper" contribution to the UN. After joining the UN I would apply for all the loan money I could and then of course default. Hell everyone else in the world does it, so it should work for me!

Thats the easiest question I've ever been asked in my life. Ireland.

Brazil....could hang out in Rio whenever you felt like it and I'm pretty sure there is plenty of virgin ground there. Like jtw2 though, I always thought it would be cool to have your own island then stack ICBMs on it till you cant walk on it.

I'd stay here, but travel (& buy a cottage) to the following places: 1> Boracai, Palawan 2> Thailand-->Ko Samet, Ko Chang, Ko Phi-Phi, Ko tao, among others 3> New Zealand & Australia 4> Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Germany (Bavarian Alps) Thats it. Homebase would still be Arizona.

North Dakota-- It would probably only take 4 or 5 million to buy up the entire state, another 5 million to build a nice estate, and invest the rest in foreign (USA) markets for income purposes. The only remaining problem would be how to attract former playmates to live in my kingdom. Or, I suppose in a pinch I could settle for Clinton White House interns, if I didn't mind dropping a few million on plastic surgery for them.

Switzerland, With 20 mil, you could buy yourself a citzenship, Few gunlaws, ranges everywhere, Nobody cares how many guns you have, or what kind either, Don't know, but full-auto may be legal to have without a bunch of red tape, Nice country, Good food, Good looking women, Goverment there makes it a point to keep out unwanted immigrants (middle-eastern,african,and any other group of people who tend to be a pain in the ass)Stable economy, What else could you want?

I'd get a clause in the contract to stay where I'm at til my youngest(10)is out of school and then Switzerland. Depending of course on how hard the SHTF from now til then.

I already live in a foreign country. It's called the Soviet Socialist Republic of Massachusetts.[:o)][:X*] Do I still get the twenty million dollars? No?[>(]

I know I'm going to get some flames for this answer... Paris, France. The happiest time of my life was spent there. The problem was everything was so expensive. The 20 million would make it an even nicer place to live. Of course, I couldn't carry my guns, but there are more important things in life than just guns. I would be happy spending my life walking around the city. Except for a few extended stays out of town for work, I've walked the same streets here for 73 years, and I'm tired of them. I could eat at a different cafe or restaurant every meal. Bologna sandwiches and McDonalds here is getting old. After walking, I could spend the rest of the day sitting on a park bench near the river Seine watching the world.z

Double ditto (Gus, the most rare AR-180 ever manufactured lives somewhere in New Zealand. An AR-180 with wooden furniture and manufactured as a single shot. I'm now about six months behind it !)

Let me jump on this bandwagon also. Beautiful country, New Zealand. After NZ it would be Australia, around Melbourne, and then Thailand.

Or maybe Lake Moro near Lucerne in the Swiss Alps near the Italian border. Palm trees in the Alps are a nice touch.

I would move to "The People's Republic Of Boulder, Colorado". With all the cash, I could once again allow the decent citizens of Boulder county to once again have the 2nd Ammendment.

Illegally, of course. The French are a bunch of American-hating pussies. A lot of people mentioned a lot of very gun-unfriendly countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and France (double yuck, whiney bastards). I agree with Switzerland or the deal about an island and declaring war on the US. I travel a lot on my job and, even though it has it's problems, I really haven't found anywhere else I would rather live than the US. A lot of nice places to visit, but not to live.
