What part of the People Republic were you living?
I spent 23 years total at and around Edwards AFB, in the Mojave Desert.
Welcome to OSA.I was right in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. It was great as far as convenience to everything you wanted but horrible as far as being a gun owner. Also crime just got worse and worse and the homeless situation was a nightmare. Pre Breun we couldn’t get a CCW unless we were a member of the elite. It was probably better where you were.
