It just doesnt appeal to us to participate in the western wear aspect ourselves. I typically wear steel toes work boots and a ball cap if I wear a hat (a carryover from my working years) . We have been to 2 rodeos, so now that is a "been there, done that" type of thing that we may (or may not) do again in the future. And for the comment I made earlier that "I dont get it", I was referring to folks who get nervous at the thought that people in an area may want to conceal carry. The people that do conceal carry with a CCW are typically more trained, more respectful, more aware and far less prone (less than 1%) to use a firearm in a crime of any type. I understand that many people have a less than educated, and often kneejerk reaction to others legally owning firearms, but the best thing for folks like that is stay out of areas that legal firearms are viewed as useful tools for the general populace (like AZ), and move to areas where firearms are shunned in the culture, and only used by the (typically copious) criminal element.

As for AZCDL, we will certainly look into that. I typically EDC (concealed only), and my wife does also on occasion, and we have insurance for any firearm related legal issues, but protecting our rights in the legislature is also an interest of ours.

Wow, what a rude response. Big over reaction.

It would be tons cheaper to go for visits in the worst times of the year for a week, or so instead of up, and moving all their earthly belongings every time they find they hate the place. That area has screaming hot weather which is easy to research online. Of course some things are easier to find out when you are actually living there, like unapproved t-shirts, lol. Btw. just because there may be "some" tshirts that appear to be satanic doesn't mean everybody there is into that mess.

There are no perfect places. It boils down to what is a deal breaker, and what isn't that important in the long run.

True dat, but that is NOT the OP's M.O.

It's not hot all year long, but there are a few months during the summer that it can be very unhealthy/unbearable for older Seniors.

As for the t-shirts, we are Christians, so when we see t-shirts advertising Satan, we have to wonder about who is wearing them and the area.

No place is perfect, we know that, but there are things that can be very unacceptable. High heat and advertising Satan, to us, are totally unacceptable! Can't do much about advertising, but can definitely do something (in a year) about living in this kind of heat. IOW, back to Old Man Winter, but not nearly as back in Reno or Carson City as was in northern Colorado. Not nearly.

Honestly, I get what you are saying.


I grew up in a small town where people waved at each other, most people went to church (occasionally) and HOA didn't exist. If I ever find that again I'm never gonna leave.



Right now I'm back visiting my folks in the Prescott Valley area. They have a fight going with their HOA because some new company took it over and their crazy neighbor is now the head HOA rules enforcer. It's gravel roads and large acreage but they'll still fine you for an unauthorized flower bed or going 12mph in a 10mph. I talked to someone else in the community and they said they're so happy that the rules are finally being enforced


As for the guys in Satan shirts as long as he doesn't call the HOA because of a bird feeder or dial 911 when he sees someone going 15mph I don't care what he/she/"pronoun" wear.
