    Gordy,

    If you get up here look me up. And I might have to warn you, it's a bit warm up here also. You might even say hot.

    Denny, I remember when you wrote that post about someone in the Pervert Ward of a Minnesota State Institution so watch it. And that story about sheep all running scared did Not originate in Montana!

    The "lower bank"?? Is that the sanitized term for what's known by the shooters as "death valley"?

    (LOL) Lower bank,Yep some folks call it Death Valley.Ironically I shot my best h-cap score at Missoula on the lower side.The targets are much more consistent now with the new traps.I only had a chance to shoot that lower section once since the change.

    Old Cowboy do you need any once fired hulls? If so tell us as we will be more than happy to give them to you, than to let them hit the ground. Looking forward to meeting you at the shoot.

    Denny,

    I have a nice ewe...slightly used, tied up at the camper just for you. I would have gotten you a worgin....but couldn't find one. The prez told me you didn't like em not knowing what to do anyway. LOL I am getting a bit tired of inviting you to our state shoot. Do you really like old MO that much? I will buy the first and the next cool one...I guess that's what it takes to get you to come up.....again according to the "prez". Lots of money here...and us Montanans are ripe for the picking. I think that's why Harlan is here...along with Stu Welton, Mike Stears, and a few more that escape me at the moment.

    So come on up--over---or down which ever works for you.

    See ya there....heat or not.

    I will be one of those setting the birds....powder puffs ya know.

    Rickyd

    Gordy,

    You won't have to worry about the wind in Missoula...the wind only blows in Great Falls. I don't know how many times I have heard that.

    See ya all there......Rickyd

    13,600 in added money and over 12,000 in trophies. I know Gene and he will make sure all the OOS people get theirs also. 18 automatic traps and a roast pig dinner on Friday night. 2100 added money on the Butte Medal. It's supposed to be nice...only in the 90's.

    Hope to see everyone there...Rickyd

    Pukey,

    I think you may have Missoula confused with Great Falls. LOL. It is a very well run shoot and lots of great shooters attend. The scores will depend on the weather. As always.

    shoot well and have fun.....Rickyd

    Montana holds one of the best state shoots I've been to.

    Good luck to you Ricky. I took a new job so I am on the "doubtful" list. Tell the lady that drives the people mover "hi" for me.
