Hello from WA!
« on: December 29, 2021, 03:43:53 pm »
Hello there,
My wife and I live in Western WA but are planning to move to AZ.
Two weeks ago we visited our friends who live at the Sun City Festival and loved the place even though we are aware of the summer heat, wiich we hope would be better for our arthritis that constant rain and gray sky. :-\
It was also a great relief for us to see Free Country where there are no masks, or jab mandates, or anti-2nd "laws".
As soon as we find jobs in the area, we will move there.
We are both naturalized American citizens from Russia; therefore, jokes about bears drinking vodka and playing balalaika are always welcome! ;-)
We are not new to firearms and have a few in our collection, mostly semi-autos: ARs, Glocks and such. I carry LCP .380 and I plink every weekend with my Tippmann M4-22 Micro Elite and Kel-Tec CP33.

    Welcome, spent some time in Western WA at Ft Lewis and then working for the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.  Beautiful country ruined by liberals...

    More the merrier! Came from Tacoma myself a long time ago. Have lived all over the state, currently in Tucson for the 3rd time. About the only thing I miss is Frisko Freeze and good seafood.

    Dobro pozhalovat!
    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we, as a society, lose that affinity, we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    I'm a soon to be resident of AZ as well.  The timetable is to move to Sun City West next September after our house there completes remodeling.  We'll be escaping the People's Republic of Marylandstan.

    You don't miss the Aroma of Tacoma?

    The smell, no, the fog and view of the bay, yes. I lived near Stadium for a number of years in a high rise, then my parents decided they wanted a yard so we moved out to Lakewood. This was when Lakewood was nice, or at least way nicer than now.

     Welcome from Saddlebrooke.
    We came a few years back.
    Sadly, many others from Washington have brought their politics and liberal ideas here.
    It is difficult to understand why they cant see the difference is the reason they moved here.
