Leave MD forever and go to a free state and you'll begin to understand. It isn't easy to put in words that people can understand, what I feel, now that I'm not a MD resident. The only easy way to explain it is "freedom".
Right behind you.... I only waited as long as I did for the youngest to graduate HS...

When we moved to the Mid-A from FL, looked at all the states... everything was pretty much even in regards to moneys (taxes), figured WV was too far and my time was more important to me.... Then MD changed thier gun laws... pissed me off... talk about buyers remorse... Add in that company now wants to concentrate on projects in rural areas vs DC/Balt metro.... drive time there no longer matter... WV here I come!!!

It was the best decision I ever made. During all this panic, MD shops have to deal with 77r stuff, mass HQL apps, etc... Meanwhile, I just walked in, said I want that handgun, after NICS clears, I walk out the door. A fellow member was with me last weekend when I snagged 2x G17 gen 3's. He asked if I had a waiting period and had to come back for them. All I said was watch this.

I can buy anything I want, the taxes are lower, the air is cleaner (at least where I am), good neighbors, it's quiet and peaceful, and life moves a bit slower out in those hills.

Just got to watch out for the Mothman. It will sneak up on you.

Only have to worry about him during the holidays and over towards Pt. Pleasant.

White things, however, are said to roam the state. Far less benign or benevolent than the Mothman.




In all seriousness though. Anyone looking to escape in the near future, there have been some pretty good properties come up for little money.

No kidding it will, that was good beer you snagged for me. I still have one can left for when we are on PSN.

Are you kidding me? I know it is a hike, but why don't you look at the Ranson location, near me?

I'll be on Monday late afternoon/early evening after my house closing at 1300HRS. I'll have some Mothman with me.

I'll check all of the other offices too. Now, for tags on a car, I can make an appointment for later this month. Just licensing services are backed up until February.

I used to frequent W.V. quite a bit and hunt there. Had a hunting cabin in a small town there back in the 80's and 90's. That was near Thomas and Davis and was a quiet town right near Garrett County and Kempton Maryland. Was all of a few dozen houses. Also further west in Bruceton mills and Kingwood, Albright W.V. I have a son with a farm in Kingwood and no restrictions or permits there to build. I really like the towns close to Hagerstown MD and go south into W.V. Places like Berkley Springs, Paw Paw and Springfield are nice too. My brother has two land plots of 5 or 6 acres each in Springfield W.V. He wants to sell me one of them. They have only three house even close to him and the North Branch of the Potomac River is across from him. They have some restrictions though an building. Its quiet though and may see only a few cars an hour come by. There are new communities being built now in town of Springfield. These are private high dollar neighborhoods though. I would stay clear of them.
