Wednesday Gun Porn...

It's been a while since I've posted any gratuitous gun porn and I think it's about time for some; 11 min. 56 sec. of it to be exact.

Oh man, I'm really going to enjoy living in Arizona! It's as close to 'home' as I'm ever gonna get.

Did I miss something? Are you moving to AZ?

I am CTT. As soon as I find a place I like and want to call home.

I like Flagstaff, because it's up in the mountains and doesn't get as hot as the southern part of the state. But there are a lot of Indians around there (bow & arrow Indians, not forehead-dot Indians).

You might also check out Prescott. It's also near the mountains. It used to be a great place (especially Whiskey Row) but I haven't been there in years. I've heard rumors it's gotten yuppiefied, but like I said, I haven't been there in a long time.

My wife's father used to have a ranch near Skull Valley, just outside of Prescott. It was pretty rural...

Back in April I was in AZ with a rental and a plan to see as much of the state as possible; as much of the practical areas where work will be and one I can afford, anyways.

I put 2600 miles on that piece of shit Nissan Versa when it was all said and done.

I really liked the mountainous drive through Payson north through Sedona and then up to Flagstaff. I went through the Grand Canyon National Park and stopped there to check out that incredible view and have a few beers with all the Japanese tourists. They were everywhere! There were lots of people in general for a Tuesday in April, but then again it's The Grand Canyon.

From there I made my way down to Prescott Valley. I liked the area with all of the mountains but it seemed like more of a retirement destination than anything. The chick working behind the counter at the Best Western where I stayed corrected me on my pronunciation of "Prescott" which made me laugh. Apparently in Press-Kit they don't like it when FNG's say Press-Scott like it's spelled. Whatever. It doesn't matter anyways because it's crossed off my list.

I liked the surrounding areas outside of Phoenix; areas like Mesa, Chandler, and Gilbert. Tempe would be alright if is wasn't for all the college kids. I'm too old for that scene and ASU is right there so Tempe is crossed off the list as well.

I was back out there last week for a couple days and I'm heading back out there again in the next week or so to have another look for a place to rent and call home. I would be great to be out there by the next Big Sandy Shoot in October. Oh man...

My sister-in-law lives in Scottsdale, just outside of Phoenix. It used to be a nice place, but the Phoenix sprawl has overgrown it. Same thing with the land between Scottsdale and Sedona. Much more built up and congested than it used to be.

My nephews all go to AU in Tuscon. That's not a bad place, but it is full of college kids and Mexicans.

I don't much care for the Phoenix area - too much sprawl, too many old retired people who drive 20 mph in the left lane, too many snowbirds in the winter, too many surface streets and not enough highways ... well, you get the idea. I'm more of a country boy.

Anyway, good luck. It's a big state and I'm sure you'll find something you like.

Forget Flagstaff, it's full of liberal turds...it'll drive you beserk! If you like the high country, check out the smaller outlying areas on the Coconino Plateau......like Williams, Show Low, etc. Happy hunting, I've been here since 1970.....LOVE AZ!

Don't forget to check out the far west valley out near the power plants. Everything on the east side is crowded. Anything north is just about solid rock. South is not the best of areas.

Thanks Weaver. I'll have to look into the far west valley. As long as there is steady work, I really don't care much where I end up.
