    Hi Guys,
    My wife and I are thinking about moving to Austin. What is it like in terms of shooting ranges, taxes, weather, income level(I am a personal fitness trainer and need access to a wealthy clientele), and friendliness of people? Any insight would be appreciated. We are currently in Communist New Jersey with gun restrictions/no places to shoot(I shoot in Pennsylvania), extremely high taxes, cold miserable weather 6 months a year, rude people everywhere, but it does have a high income level.

    Cambo, I forgot to answer about taxes. The property taxes are high. But Texas has no State Income Tax.

    Cambo, thanks for the message. A friend came to visit us yesterday from San Diego. He has been in Austin a couple of days. Loves Austin. He will be coming back a lot because he's involved in a real estate project being built in Austin. Said he could live here. Sounds like you and your wife are doing your homework. Coming next year for a visit will give you two atleast a feel for the area.

    Be forewarned, the town slogan is "keep Austin weird".

    skip Austin and look at Round Rock - much lower property taxes and also in the more conservative Williamson County..
