Here's the bottom line: we would not have all of the pro-gun, pro-2nd Amendment laws on the books in Montana if it were not for the efforts of Gary Marbut. He was recognized by the Attorney General and MSSA members Saturday night in Missoula.
I caught up with Larry Keane, Vice President of the National Shooting Sports Foundation during the SHOT Show in Las Vegas last week. I talked to him about the cool new gear, the cool new guns, and wanted to find out what else stood out at this year's show.
"I actually grew up in the Shield's Valley and it was our neighbor who invented the first rack. He was a cattle rancher and he got sick and tired of trying to get that gun out of the back window to get a shot when he would be out feeding his cows and see a coyote near his herd..."
Johnny Joey Jones: "I bought my son a 10 gauge shot gun. I bought myself a 12 gauge. He's into playing the saxophone and baseball. I played football and can't carry a tune in the bucket. But we go to the skeet range and he out shoots me. That's what we've found that the two of us enjoy together and can connect on. "
I'll be lucky enough to be sitting right on media row for the SHOT show. We'll get a front row seat to some of the coolest new guns and outdoor gear. Plus, I hear there will be a lot of Montanans down there.
