    Out of my mind, brb never.
    Just got back from Montana, where I was visiting my
    friends who attend MSU Bozeman. We took a road trip to
    Yellowstone and then to Flathead Lake in northern
    'Tana as well, stopping by in Glacier National Park.
    Needless to say it was 3 weeks of beer, fun and guns
    in what a flatlander like me would call serious
    wilderness.

    He will put a freeze over Gotham for sure.

    Now to the Guns

    I had brought my Bushy Ar15 up, and my friend had an
    AKM, M9, .308 PPK, .45 Defender, Ruger wheelgun (.45
    long colt?), .454 Casuul, and a 12 gauge Winchester
    shotgun.

    [​IMG]
    Good old table O' guns (the .454 is in the box). Im
    checking out the Ruger.

    [​IMG]
    The Treo.

    [​IMG]
    The .380 PPK was a blast to shoot, even though its a
    shorter 9mm round, it still is pretty snappy in a
    small package. Trying to do a BUG drill assbackwards.

    [​IMG]
    You should always mix beer and guns! :rolleyes: My
    friend wasnt shooting because he is permanently
    attached to a beer can.

    My friend has something like 800 acres of land that we
    could shoot and drive on. Heres a set of my friend
    trying to catch brass coming out of my AR.

    [​IMG]
    No luck on this shot.

    [​IMG]
    Again, no brass, but still a good shot.

    [​IMG]
    Shot with the bolt heading back to battery.

    [​IMG]
    Cigarette break...as if breathing in the nasty WWB
    cordite wasnt enough.

    Heres a vid of me trying to kill a 3in wide tree at 30 yards:

    [​IMG]
    Up in Jackson Creek Mt on the ridgeline shooting
    across at gofers.

    [​IMG]
    And of course, no trip is complete without seeing a Budweiser hoppes storage facility.

    It was a great life experience to be able to go to
    such an awsome and beautiful place like Montana, and
    be old enough to truely appreciate it. I will
    definately be going back soon. :bigthumb:

    Weird question. If I wanted to head up there with a couple buddies with our guns, would we get weird looks. We are Asian :hs:

    Actually you might get a few looks if you're asian. Not in any touristy areas, and no one's gonna talk shit or anything, but you will be noticed. I once watched a black guy walk down the street and as he passed, I watched almost every person on the sidewalk or in a car stop and turn their head and look at him as if it was a rare sight.

    Honestly, the only asian people I see up there are usually in chinese or japanese restaurants. (which still suck, sadly)

    You probably wouldn't have had such a good time if you lost an eye. Wear some eye pro next time.

    How far do people live from areas like that?

    I have always been a city person...but it would kick ass if I can go in my backyard and be that close to a freaking river and tons of open land.

    Glacier is pretty remote. The closest good sized town is Whitefish, and thats still like 20 miles outsde the park. But there is alot of rugged terrain all over the place, close to homes and whatnot.
