    New group forming in Montana

    Hey y’all, I’m new to the site but not new to the cause! I wanted to let everyone here know about something starting in the Flathead Valley Area of Montana. Myself and a few other friends are in the process of starting a ‘club’ in our area here for Open Carriers and Concealed Carriers. The point of this organization is to promote the lawful and legal carry of firearms for self defense with focus on Open Carry. All carriers will be gladly welcomed! We also have a dual purpose of educating the General Public on the legality and hopefully the acceptability of carrying a firearm for defensive purposes.

    This is a Non-Profit organization. We will be meeting occasionally at a local restaurant, probably once or twice a month and welcome anyone to attend these informal meetings. Any input from anyone, whether in or out of Montana, is greatly appreciated. If you’re travelling through this area feel free to drop me a line and some of us would be more than happy to meet you for coffee or eats. Any information and/or pointers from other such organizations are welcome as well as we’re a young and budding group!

    Thanks for giving this a read! Stay safe and y’all keep up the great work!

    Count me in!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I assume these meetings are "bring your own"?

    By all means, bring your own gun! The restaraunt where we met at initially is owned by a huge 2nd-Amendment supporter. He stopped and chit-chatted with us the first time we were in there! His theory is if people are carrying in his restaraunt, he's got less of a chance of being robbed!

    I must say the waitress was awesome too!!

    Hey y'all. We're going to be meeting at Perkin's in Kalispell at 4:00 if anyone is in the area and able to join us! Feel free to OC or CC, whichever you prefer. Either is accepted there! Hope to see any and all that can attend, the more the merrier!!

    Sorry, I figured I'd be a little more specific! We'll be meeting Monday 02 March, 2009 at 4:00 until probably about six. Again, anyone willing and desirous to attend is welcome to come!!

    Had a great time today and was extremely thankful for those who decided to come. Captain Crunch, thanks for coming and tell your wife thank you for letting us have you in attendance today! It was good to have you! Hopefully we'll see you at the next one. We'd like to do these a little more frequently but we'll do it as time and individual schedules permit!!
    Thanks again!!

    Hey y'all, we're back at it again! We're going to be meeting again this next Thursday at 3:00 in the PM at Perkin's restaurant. Anyone in the area and wanting to attend is more than welcome to join us. Feel free to carry either OC or CC there, we don't mind and neither does the restaurant!
    Hope to see more people there!!

    Okay, as an update, we'll be meeting in the Party Room on the East end of the restaurant rather than in the usual room where they've put us. Still at Perkin's in Kalispell and still at 3:00 in the afternoon! We've got some new people that are gonna be there so hopefully this rise in attendance will be a sign of things to come!!
    See y'all there!!

    Okay everyone. I'm looking to schedule another 'Cuss & Discuss' and am hoping to do it sometime soon!! I think with the passing of HB's 228 and 246 we should have a lot to talk about. If anyone wants to attend, let me know when's good for you. Usually anytime Monday through Thursday either early or mid-afternoon has worked the best so far!
    PM me and let me know what y'all think. I'm anxious to get everyone together again. We've had fun so far and I'm sure we will again!!

    Alright y'all. Monday through Thursday at about 1500 this next week. Tell me if you're wanting to come and if so what day you would prefer the 'cuss & discuss' to be on. I'm flexible so far!!
