    The State of Montana has so few residents that the whole state is served by just one area code. Almost a million headcount...but this is a big snowbird area, so it waxes and wanes with the seasons.

    Open Carries are everywhere and there was even a Radio Shack that gave away a gun with every satellite dish sale. That went viral a few years ago.

    This is total culture shock to an ex-SoCal resident.... where I never saw handguns on open display and the cans of spray paint behind lock and key.

    Hard liquors are sold in a Montana State liquor store.... but some bars sell it in a carry-package. Odd.

    Anyway.... here in Big Sky Land, we have so many of the old cowboy and rancher ways still in control . Our children can expect the local cops to give sufficient, er.....non-judicial punishment....... to keep graffiti and tagging from happening..... or being visible for long. It gets removed by the perps and then they have to answer to their parents. ... double jeopardy!.

    Homes are never locked...... unless one has recently moved from Californicatia --- that's a tip off.

    We leave the keys in our vehicles just in case someone gets hurt running a tractor, for instance, and can drive themselves to the hospitol. That's nice, kind even!

    Let's see and hear from some Montana Glockers. I'm not passing out membership numbers..... we trust each other in Montana too much for that ..... and besides........ we have Glocks to keep things civil.

    Went through Wyoming last week.

    Pretty, then a blizzard, then lightning and hail.
    Then clear and then night.
    Night was inevitable.... but a relief.

    Oh.... then blinding rain and slushy snow again.

    Pretty though.

    Dear V Gehts: Ja! The gate's OK but the hinges are shot.

    Oh yeah - lots o' rabbits! Most have moved down town for the protected status they didn't have at the campground. Hurt a rabbit - go to jail.

    I watch the occasional hawk or bald eagle grab one once in a while as I'm sitting on the exercise bike looking out the big windows of the therapy building across from the Post Office.

    I moved here in Nov 2011, and haven't seen too much happen to the area other than a few more homes being built on Grantsdale and Blood Lane (don't ask!).

    Still 'n all - there's NO WalMart yet.

    Tuesday I'm joining the pistol range up on the Westside, down in the Northern side of Hamilton. It's kinda funny thinking as North as being DOWN - but that's the way the river flows - North! And DOWN!

    The Law of Gravity was repealed here.

    I know where Billings is. I've been through it a few times and drove to a music store there last year. Typically I am nearer home most of the time though.

    Just joined the forums. I didnt care for glocks when I was younger due to not liking the way they felt in my hands. For the last couple years I have grown to like them. I dont mind gen 3 but I really like gen4 and gen5. I live in Hamilton just down the road from the shooting range.

    Sorry --- you're wrong. I LIVE in Hamilton.

    Only ONE Hamiltonian on this site - it's in the rules.

    I’m a “Honorary Hamiltonian” cuz I stayed over night (camped) there twice.
    I even bought gas and ate at a subway.

    You sure you didn't eat at Subway, then get gas?

    If you survived eating there, you may very well have qualified for Hamiltonian Honorary Residency.

    It's kinda like a Transient's Purple Heart for Roadside Consumption but only if you repeat the same gustatory act when you visit again. Since it's somewhat of a tourist-only single act of bravado you may not qualify for the battle ribbon at all.....

    .... it's certainly not good enough to be recognized as a Resident's Purple Heart with Oak Cluster badge of honor..
