    Checking-In from Wyoming

    Recently joined the forum, and have already made several posts.....prior to an introduction! Born and raised in Louisiana, moved to Wyoming in 1985, and recently retired. Married a Wyoming girl in 1991, who loves the out of doors, as much as I. In fact, her Bighorn Sheep, and 2 Pronghorns, dwarf mine. I started hunting (just following my dad and uncles) at about age 5. Started packing my own firearm at 8. Bought my first centerfire rifle (Win. Model 88 in .308) @14, and very soon started Handloading with the Lee Loader. Bought my first centerfire handgun @16 (S&W Model 28), and soon started casting bullets.....which made shooting much more affordable. We enjoy, big game hunting, boating/fishing, rv?ing (3 or more weeks boondocking during the fall/winter while hunting), and travel/sightseeing. We live on a small piece of land in North-Central Wy., and have a 300 yard range out the back door, though we don?t use it as much as we should! memtb

    The model 88 is a sweet gun. My dad bought one back in 1959 I think. 308 also
    Do you know what Jim Bridger said about the Indians? " Just when your not seeing any is about the time they are fixing to get the thickest"
