Fishers specifically; and wondering how is life there compare to other gun friendly states? Thanks!
It has the uncanny effect of making you want to change your name...
Never lived in any other state so can’t answer.
I normally don't talk to people who live in fishers
Moved from Indiana to Ohio. Still visit Indiana a lot. Here are things that I miss about Indiana:
1) CCW with just a background check.
2) No stupid knife laws. Automatic knives are legal to carry.
3) Very gun friendly. Everyone deer hunts.
4) In Ohio, they name roads by what they connect (Greenville-Ithaca Road). This is nice, but things change and the road names don't. So Children's Home - Bradford Road no longer has a children's home on it. In Indiana they number the country roads. So If at intersection of 200 south and 300 east, you know exactly where I am.
5) You can get an awesome deal on a deer tag. Especially if you hunt in southern Indiana. They allow rifle cartridges. Ohio, you can't.
Things to check out:
1) Childrens museum. If you have kids, this is a must. Get a season pass. You'll want to go back.
2) Indiana gun club is close to where you will be.
3) You should go to the Indianapolis 500 at least once.
4) If you hunt, Camp Atterbury is close to Columbus, Indiana.
5) St Elmos steakhouse is world famous, but expensive.
6) There is a "Super" Target store in Fishers. If you are married, this will put your wife "in the mood".
7) If you are a computer geek, there is a Fry's outpost in Fishers.
8) Eagle creek reservoir, on the west end of Indy has good crappie fishing.
9) Not sure what it's called now (formerly deer creek music center), but it's a good place to see concerts.
10) It's pop, not soda. It's a cart, not a buggy. It's the fridge, not a cooler.
Hoosiers (a person from Indiana) are friendly people. It takes a little time to get into their circles, but will do anything in the world for you once they get to know you.
Indiana is pretty good when it comes to gun laws. No firearms ID card or firearms registration is required. You can purchase ammunition on-line. No magazine capacity or "assault weapons" prohibitions. No waiting period for firearms purchases.
One somewhat odd aspect of Indiana law is that you can purchase a weapon to have in your home, you can transport the weapon unloaded from a point of sale or transfer to your home, and you can transport it from your home to a place of service or transport to be worked on. The law does not clearly state that you can actually shoot the weapon off of your property, even at a range.
Indiana offers a concealed carry license and actually offers a lifetime permit. You need to be electronically fingerprinted and pay the usual application fee. There is no requirement to pass a written or range live fire test. Indiana also offers a "range permit" for those who merely want to use their weapon off their premises and remain legal. But it costs as much as the concealed carry permit so there is little reason to get it. I have never heard of anyone being arrested or having a weapon confiscated because they were shooting at a range without either permit. I have asked range owners and police officers about this aspect of Indiana law, and have been told it is a "gray area" that would be subject to the judgement of the individual LEO.
Almost forgot. The Indy 1500 gun and knife show is awesome.
I like it here..
I've lived in Louisville KY which for me is two miles away..
KY has constitutional carry now..
Welcome to Indiana. Do check out the Indy 1500 gun shows.
Where are you looking to live? I grew up in Indiana bit was elsewhere for 15 years. just moved to Indy and am happy to talk specifics on other aspects of life here, too.
The Indiana Gun Owners Forum should be looked into for any local deals etc.. Called INGO..
I'll second the INGO forum. Join and participate in the discussions.
Sorry, just saw this post...…..WELCOME!
By now you know we are a FREE STATE with very nice gun laws, I too live in Fishers, always ranked #1 or #2 in the state to live in, but in another five years it will look like Lawrence to the south as more crime and criminals move into the city too.
