I get my rights back once I'm off probation. I know, it's BS. I'm pretty sure that's the way it is in all of the states.

They have to keep their guns locked up when I'm around.


Nope. EIther this is incorrect, or the history you mention is missing some rather interesting details.

I can't think of a misdemeanor you could commit that would cause the loss of 2A rights.

That's what my probation officer told me. He even made me give him a notarized letter stating that I gave my gun away to someone for the duration of my probation.

In the state of CO you are not allowed to have a firearm if you are on probation.

Ahh, that makes more sense. Its like a mini california there. Nice to visit....but if you throw down roots they will tax them.

I wonder if the FLorida office will have to enforce the laws of another state like that? If its not enumerate in the papers....it likely won't apply. Being back in the south might have some perks.

The interstate transfer person that handled my case said they had to do a "walkthrough" of the place I'm transferring to.

Didn't happen


I'm just going off of Colorado law. It's really been diluted through call after call after call. I have a feeling they don't even know what the hell they're talking about.

So, how do you feel after moving? I've thought about moving to a remote place more surrounded by nature..

Sorry to hear that..

I actually thought of moving to Denver in order to save money. And also since it's a clean city.

Where I am, a cheap run down house is probably $700,000 and houses are more typically $850,000+. Things are out of control here.

I hear on the outskirts of Denver you can buy a house for $400,000 or so..

It actually has been really good for me ,
I have a gorgeous garden , I have almost twenty acres to do with as I please..heaven to me.

There's a farm a bout a mike away I've made friends with the owners, brother and sister in there late sixties..I help them hay and they help me with firewood.

I had neck surgery a few years before I moved,I was stagnant sitting in a chair 20 lbs over wieght, and generally unhappy..
Now I wake up to gorgeous sunrises on my deck with a cup of coffee and then get to work...

Gardening,building retention walls..taming the landscape, last year we built a woodshed out of used pallets old tin and tree trunks...

But all in all im in the best shape I have been in since my injury and just generally happier.

Getting satellite TV this past year was huge...I used to have too drive two hours to newhampshire on Sundays to watch GoT ...


Thanks for asking!

That sounds great. It takes a lot of balls to leave a place you have been living for a long time.

Did you live in a city prior to that?

I would like to get away from these planes that fly over my head every 30 min.

I lived in naugatuck Connecticut....
About an hour and half from new York city.

Now I live in Sheffield Vermont northeastkingdom.

Huge change...there is no highschool in town ..they bus the 25 or so 8 th graders two Towns over..the land is cheap if your willing to sacrifice convenience for privacy..building can be expensive...people up here seem to just move slower...

Someday I'll get a better phone so I can post pics...

The worst part is the winter..our road is a private road..an old logging road..we have a ranger with a plow on it but that doesn't make it any better when your out there plowing at 10 below 0 f...

Wow, thanks for sharing. I don't think I would survive up there as I'm a single. I might end up like the guy from the Shining.

Sounds like a beautiful place though. I was not too far from you in the White Mountains. Drove the car up Mt. Washington and hiked around a bit. Amazing place. I was also in Burlington - great town. Drove around many country roads up there and hiked; really liked it. Getting the fireplace going in the winter probably makes up for all its troubles.

Best,

I've left everything behind a few times. Sometimes it's easy. Sometimes it's not. Have a safe trip.

sounds like a good plan. Get into house sitting for the rich and famous. You can stay in multi million dollar mansions that are empty at no cost.

Waaaaw where do you live?

Denver is nice.

400,000 will get you a pretty good place.
