    Question Moving to Pennsylvania (advice for towns/counties?)

    howdy. i currently live in New Jersey. i can't stand the area, and it's gun laws anymore.

    so i'm moving to Pennsylvania. plan on getting LTCF. it will be concealed carry.
    are there any counties, cities, towns etc i would want to avoid?
    it will be a rural area. not Philadelphia.

    also i would like to get 10ish acres of land about an hour and a half from northern NJ.
    i want to be able to go on my land (with a proper dirt backstop) and shoot with my family.
    are discharge laws by town, county?

    i want to be fully legal in EVERYTHING i do.
    any advice or info would be most appreciated.

    thanks for reading

    Stay out of any communities if you want to keep your sanity.
    With a LTCF you don't necessarily need to carry concealed, but it's your choice and keeps you out of trouble when a state of emergency is declared.

    Green counties are considered 'rural' and would be the best place to start given your desire to not go too far from NJ.

    There is a lot of rural in NE PA and you should be able to find yourself something that works up there. And North Joisey is just a hop, skip and a jump away.

    This reads like an undeveloped residence to establish residence thread.

    My advice: Stay in NJ. Vote Republican, volunteer, fight, advocate, and try to change the PRNJ from within.

    If you want to move here, then actually move here. Don't "buy some land" to come shoot and enjoy what we've fought for while still staying "within X distance" of the motherland. Buy a home, change your residence, give up on NJ. That means it's your primary residence, no concerns about staying "close enough". And please, for goodness sake, don't enjoy our hard-won liberty then turncoat and be voting for the same things that made NJ the shithole it has become. We see WAAAAY too much of that.

    avoid Monroe and Pike that are green on the map. full of NJ and NY transplants that changed them for the worse .

    monroe is especially bad when it comes to property taxes, car insurance, and home insurance are much higher because it is considered a tourist area

    I think we should setup a socialist exchange program. We ship* all avowed socialists to Jersey in exchange for all Jersey's conservatives.


    *Shipment will be conducted by Trebuchet over the Delaware.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.
