Magnificent country. I still have great memories of my one visit to Idaho. The shores of Lake Pend Oreille. 1969 National Jamboree (Boy Scouts). Have always wanted to return; maybe someday.

Y'all come back, now. Y'hear?

WELCOME. Southerner's are friendly folk and we believe that If you are a gun owner then you are among friends
My dad was a weather man. He had a set crystal balls. do you have crystal balls?
He also used to play weather poker.
all the weathermen toss a $100.00 each into the pot
a date is chosen 1 year or more from that day
the weather is then forecasted for that day. being a weatherman you know that sunny or raining is not a forecast. They had to forecast all the details.

@frodo that is funny. When I lived in Wyoming we had a "Snow Pool" every year we took a calendar and all the neighbors would chose the day They thought we woukd have our first snow fall. The spread was often over several months as the running joke in Wyoming was "Only two people try to predict the weather forecast in Wyoming, a new comer or a fool"
I recall one year in the early 90's we had snow on the 4th of July.

Hey All!

New here because of a Google search that lead me to dredge up an old thread. Didn't even know you guys existed..., now I are one!

I'm not new to guns by any stretch. Living in Idaho, I don't think you have much of a choice and that's the way I like it... uh huh, uh huh! I know... does an Idahoan even belong in this forum?! Hopefully, you'll allow it!

A little about myself: I am now, a retired Metrologist (no, I don't predict the weather!). A native Idahoan (a rare bird and proud of it!). A collector at heart. Really into flyfishing and collect the vintage equipment. Rods, reels, creels, old wooden fishing lures, flies, etc. I have quite an Angling book collection of many rare and collectible editions, dating from the 1600's to the present! I'm into knives, custom and quality manufactured. I have a huge collection and investment in Wristwatches (you think guns are expensive?)! I love 'em and I have the bug for both. It's usually a decision... what watch or what gun can I get instead of buying one or the other. Into most old stuff, baseball and football cards, even decks of old playing cards. Antique furniture, audio equipment, etc. I could go on and on. It would be easier to mention what I don't collect! Wish I had more money and there would be some nice cars in the garage, too! Of course guns! I am a huge fan of .22's with many fine rifles, handguns and pistols. I do like highly figured wood! Now, along these lines, I have started to seriously collect ammo cartridges and have representations of over 200 different calibers, now. It's becoming another obsession!

Thanx for letting me vent and looking forward to "speaking" with everyone, learning and contributing where I can.

These are weird times for sure and I hope everyone is safe and remains that way.

BTW... I do tend to get a little windy and I appreciate everyone's patience!

And remember..., you can always send your spare ammo my way...!

Thanx All,
Robert

LOL I can relate.
I lived on the western slope in colorado, A small cow town named ridgeway, True Grit was filmed there. I have been on that ranch. I took my wife on the 4th of july to a pretty little meadow I had found for a picnic. it snowed.
