Hello there, My name's Jason. I've owned guns for 11 years and favor modern pistols/revolvers. Rifle's are good but I seldom shoot past 50 yards, so I only own two and the 10/22 gets the most use. The main reason I joined this forum is because I want to move out of Massachusetts next year and my research so far is making me lean towards Texas. I'm seeking more freedom, warmer weather and lower cost of living, and want to get away from a state dominated by anti-gun, nanny staters. I'd like to learn more about what each region of Texas is like from those who live there. Especially about the local culture. There are some very predjudiced anti southerner stereotypes in the northeast, and I'm not trying to be insulting, but being fairly ignorant about Texan culture myself, and having no info yet to go against the stereotypes I've heard. I want to know how I'd be probably be treated by the locals considering I'm a northerner and non-christian. Bear in mind that I would not be trying to make Texas like Massachusetts and I like to get along with others as much as possible. Thanks in advance for your responses.
