i may be moving to gainsville , looking for info.
 
ok so i hate maine. and i have a friend who is moving to gainsville , she bought a house down there. she said i can live with her for a month or so till i find my own place.


now a few questions about the area.

how are the gun laws ?
do cars have to be inspected and smogged ?
i hve 2 pitbulls , is it a pitbull friendly area.
i hate spiders and snakes , here in maine we dont have any poisonous critters , is it really something to be worried about ?
jobs ?

anything else u can tell me abou the area woul be great. thanks

18 for rifles and shotguns, i believe. have to be 21 for handguns fo sho.

no inspection or smogging what so eva! pollute to youre hearts content

pittbulls depend more on your neighbors more than anything. there are weight/size restrictions at some apartment complexes.

as long as youre not f-ing with rattlesnakes, you should be ok. spiders are gonna get anywhere. I've never been bitten by one, and this includes camping, hiking, and airboat riding through sawgrass my whole life. My brother did just get bit recently. Main one to look out for is brown recluse, but even those are rare in city limits.

Question: How much do you like football? Gator football is GOD there, whole city shuts down for games. Trust me, I was at this past weekends game.

i guess for gun laws i meant , is open carry legal ? i have a conceal carry permit for maine , which i will obviosuly try to get one for florida , are there wating periods , figner printing ? in maine its pretty easy to buy a gun. not a big football fan , but it sounds like its an ok place. thanks
