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.
