    4Freedom. It's the federal law that stops the carry of weapons in Yellowstone, not the Wyoming State law. Who knows, if things go well that may be changed also.

    My part of Wyoming is a little flat......
    My rifle range is 14 miles long and 5 miles wide.

    BTW, there's at least two antelope and quite a few prairie dogs in that picture.

    Elk Mtn is probably 40 miles away as the crow flies, further if he's pushing a flat tire.

    Yeah I also like Cody. I have some relatives there. They're longbow hunters.
    Beautiful country.

    10 Months of winter... five feet of snow per month...100 mph winds...

    Umm... just trying to do my part to get our numbers closer to those of Alaska. ;)


    But if you insist on coming, a big welcome to you. What part of the state are you moving to?

    Awesome! I am in Wyoming right this minute, just got a firm job offer in Lander yesterday and have an interview here in Gillette on Monday. I will certainly accept one or the other of them, love these wide open spaces! And while it may be more crowded than Alaska, it is a lot better than TN these days. In truth, this is just part of my long term plan to get my wife used to the idea of moving to Alaska anyway :)

    Wyoming is a cute little state with a lot of nice friendly people.
    Too warm and too civilized for me, though.:D

    CB900F,
    Medicine Bow actually got 4 inches of snow last weekend.

    Translates into about 1/12" of moisture for the winter.

    The place is sproutin' wind turbines like weeds.

    Carbon Helix,

    Howdy neighbor, I'm in Cheyenne too.

    Carne Frio,

    Yup you got us pegged!! We're gittin' plumb cosmopolitan down here!!

    Currently stationed in Cheyenne, neat little town, friendly people. If your CCW is not honored, the laws let you open carry sans permit until you get your CCW :) FYI..you can also ride 4 wheelers/atvs on the streets in WY too..so don't be alarmed when you see a quad pass you in town, perfectly legal.

    Wicked;

    You're at Warren most likely. And that makes it likely that at sometime in the future you might visit Malmstrom. Drop me a line if that happens, shooting can be arranged.

    I lived in Casper most my life, moved up to da Falls a few years ago though. As far as economics go, I'd rather be in Wyoming. However, family realities dictated the move to Montana. Now, Montana's not a bad place you see, but it's just not Wyoming. Cars with Obama stickers do not have holes in them. I don't understand.

    I lived in small town just east of Cody, called Greybull, Wyoming. This was a couple years ago. When it comes to 2A, I wish I still lived there. A five minute drive in any direction from town would be a fine place to shoot small game or targets with a high powered rifle.

    My personal view of Wyoming is admittedly quite dated.

    Back in the pioneer days (early 70's) I stayed for a spell in Rock Springs while working on the Jim Bridger Power Plant.

    Rock Springs was the most wretched, miserable, corrupt little town I have ever witnessed or stayed in. The speed limit was 25 mph and the local cops delighted in writing speeding tickets for people going 26 mph.

    Of course, they were bleeding the itinerant construction workers (of whom there were a few thousand) for everything they could get from them. Sort of a new mining boom for the town coffers.

    The wind was something else entirely. On the drive from the town to the power plant and back, it was unheard of not to come upon at least one truck/motorhome/car per week that had been literally blown off the road and was on its side or even upside down.

    That was a different century, however, and maybe things have changed.

    Like maybe they lowered the speed limit to 20 mph and you can get a ticket for going 21?

    The upside was that every third store on the main street was a package store in front with a bar in the back. Needless to say with all of the construction workers in the area, they did almost as much business as the traffic court robbers.

    :cool:

    I live just north of Greybull in Deaver. Our trip 'to the range' is a couple of minutes as well. When I was on the City Council here I helped to make it legal to shoot in town. Now you can shoot anything you own in your yard if it isn't endangering or bothering anyone. We are selling and moving to Alaska ASAP however.

    Meef,
    I was a Highway Patrolman in Green River back about then.. Things in RS haven't changed much. It's just got bigger. Then it was power plants and trona, now it's natural gas and wind turbines are on the horizon, literally, they're building them on the mountain above town.

    I got out of there as fast as I could.:D

    I used to teach school in Med. Bow back in the 1970s. I also shot some PPC in Laramie with several LEOs, some of them were with the HP. One more hint and I'll figure out who you are. :confused:
