Yesterday, my bride and I went for a ride--we stopped by the range to try out a new gun I bought- A Smith & Wesson 9mm EZ. Sweet firearm!
But the real reason we ventured out was to check out a couple campgrounds in Montana. One was a forest service CG that was still closed. The other was a minimally improved cg right along a river with about 12 sites and a pit toilet. The last place was just about filled with peaceful campers enjoying the sun and views.
We can't wait to get out, set up, and fill our memory banks!!
Be well, stay safe, and we'll be out of this dilemma soon. See ya out there.

Looks like a nice pistol....how is that grip safety?

What kind of grouping did you get and at what yardage?


Just recieved my new lever action rifle with 16" barrel.
Haven't had a chance to slip some rounds thru it YET!


Is it time for your medication or mine?

I got a great plinking pistol the SW Victory, my DW can actually get 3 or 4 hits on the target with it at ten yards...heh. I just got the Talon grips on it, that was a shock, they are like sandpaper. I haven't been out to try those yet.

And on topic, isn't it snowing in Montana still? I just looked at Rapid City weather and it's snow and freezing rain there.

They kept the gun stores open here but closed the gun ranges - go figure.

Boise is more like southern Idaho, Bonner's Ferry is Northern Idaho but even there it's not bad 61 deg

Think we made a cool 68* today. Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday mid 50s and possible rain but still darn nice.

Congratulations! Nothing like a “new” firearm, to put a smile on your face and optimism in your heart! I’m a big fan of handguns with “grip safeties”! Obviously everything should be done to keep a handgun away small children. But, if a small child “should” get the handgun ....the child likely can not manipulate the grip safety and the trigger simultaneously! memtb
