Hi Wallen. Welcome back to CA. In my observation, you'll need to have gun-friendly support in this state, especially having been acclimated to AZ. MO I suspect is similar. I grew up in Texas where hunting and fishing was common, and parents weren't afraid to introduce a respect for guns to kids early. What is you and your family's interest in guns: collecting, buy-sell dealer, hunting, sport/competition -shooting, defense against violence, other?
