    I've been in North Dallas for about 6 months now, left CA because the politics, cost of living, and lack of upward mobility with my previous job. I do miss parts of CA, but not enough to make me want to go back.

    Just got my TX driver's license in preparation of getting my concealed license, and first gun in Texas. Just a collector of cool guns, and thankfully I don't have to dance around CA gun laws anymore. Not sure of any superb gun shops up here, and might just go to Cabella's; but if anyone has a better suggestion on pricing and availability around the Allen/Mckinney area, I'm all ears. I'm also looking for a decent shooting range too.

    Also, I'm about to buy my first motorcycle, nothing crazy just something I've been wanting for a couple years. A simple bike to get a burger on the weekends.

    Welcome to TGT. Are they running short on U Haul trailers in CA?

    Just by happenstance through work, I've met 4 families that moved from CA for the exact same reasons I did.

    Similarly, I've been turned down by some Texas girls because they think I'm a typical Californian. I'm not! Promise!

    Welcome. Some are understandably kind of leary of folks from that state.

    Welcome to the forum. We’re reserving judgement on welcoming you to the state. That line about missing parts of Kali raise a red flag.

    haha, understandably so, they've ruined so many other good things. The parts I miss are the sunny and 75 weather 90% of the year, my mexican and burrito spots, breweries on every corner, supercars more often than toyotas, and that pacific coast highway drive to work everyday. Thats about it though.

    The weather will be in the sunny and 90-100 range for much for the year, if you can't find Mexican and burrito spots in Texas you're legally blind, there's tons of local breweries but the only one you need is Shiner, and I see Lambos and McLarens every week.
