    Hi from Florida

    Just wanted to drop in and say HI. I'm here because, after months of research and flip flopping like a politician, I've decided that 6.5 will be the ultimate caliber for the AR of my dreams. Soooooo, why not go where the rest of the gang hangs out?

    I currently live in South Florida (born a Floridian and I HATE it here ) and can't wait to get out....tried several times but always ended up back here for various reasons.

    Anyway, looking forward to learning a lot here.

    Thanks for having me.

    NoSweat88: Yea, you have to love the six month sauna we get each year and while we're in the sauna we have a target painted on our backs so the hurricanes will know where to hit.

    Oh well, there are a lot worse places to be in the world.

    Welcome to the Horde and enjoy the forum.

    Spent a little over 20 years in the Palm Beach County area and then some time in North Florida around Lake City. Worked for the VA. There is about 3-4 months that are awesome though Retired back home in Northern Michigan although I still have some land in North Florida near Keaton Beach (for sale). I took a position in North Florida with the VA after being in that State to the south of me for several years with the VA and we had three hurricanes in a row in a row. Someone was trying to tell me something.

    Welcome!!

    Hey No Sweat - I did time in FL too, about 20 yrs. Am so happy to be in So Cal now - except for the gun laws. My daughter is still in FL and it burns me that she can get a CCW and I can't.

    I do get to FL for business, and had a chance to hunt hogs near Talli a few weeks ago. Building a Grendel to take back there in May.

    There is a way you can fix that... move to a free state!

    I was hoping to draw a line below Los Angeles and annex So Cal into AZ ! Hard to beat the weather here.

    I'm from Southern CA, and I resist even going back to visit my hometown, which has been overrun with Section 8 and illegals. You can only drive with your firearm in a locked compartment separate from the ammo, while the thugs roam freely with their blasters at the ready. That is a place where you actually need concealed carry more than I ever will here, but I can't legally do it in my home State.

    Maybe San Andreas will clean things up...
