If you like the old western TV shows, these are for you.
Now these are old school, but dang sexy.

Well Lima and I went on a two week vacation, flew into WI, and then road tripped with the family to MT. I've got sooo many great pictures to share, but I'll start with the pics I took at the Buffalo Bill Museum's firearms section.
I'll be updating this thread with some other pictures from MT later on, I'm killing a lot of time just waiting for these to upload to Photobucket.
To sum up the vacation, we spent a weekend in WI catching up w/ Lima's friends and family. I got to go to a Cowboy action shoot with one cousin, an uncle and two nephews, my cousin placed first in the match, and my 12 year old nephew also shoots in the matches with a Single six, Heritage Rough Rider, a period .22 rifle, and a 20g double gun.
I've only got a few pics from that day, I had to upload the memory card to my mother-in-law's PC to make room for pictures of the rest of the trip and I forgot to download them.
Here's a pic I took of Lima's uncle and his two sons.
On to the museum pics of the firearms section, get ready to drool...
A Carbine and Garrand found in the main lobby near the entrance to the firearms museum.
Here is a nickel M1 Garrand made by Winchester for Gen. Patton.
If you're a fan of military weaponry, you'll like these.
Along with some close ups of the cut-aways
I was really happy to see the "Grease gun", it's not every day you get to see one.
And a cut-away Glock.
There was a Browning gallery:
But it was most dedicated to his rifles, no Hi Powers or 1911s were in that section.
There was also a Sharps rifle section:
That reminds me, on the way out we stopped at the Shiloh Sharps shop in Big Timber, SD I'll have to post pics of those later as well.
Here are some Cots:
I can't post all the pics, but I think that was enough....
Of that floor.
From the lower level.
Just to give you some scale as to how many guns they have:
A whole wall on Enfields:
Some more carbines:
You can just imagine the drool level in front of this case.
Here's some more carbines and M14s
And here are four nickel plated M14s
That's it for now, I've got some more uploading to do.
Hope you enjoyed the pics so far.
Wow...I think I shall be taking a trip in my lifetime. Thanks for the pics!!
JD, great pics! That museum is outstanding, I would have been there for hours.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
Veni, Vidi, Velcro
So JD... How many times did the museum personnel had to ask you guys to leave 'cause they were closed for the day?
Beautiful pictures and I am glad you guys had the chance to have the experience. I am truly jealous !
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.
There's only one thing that would make those pics better:
Price tags dangling from the trigger guards.
Yeah, from WI to MT, in a van...
Thank goodness for my IPOD and my books.
The 4 year old is covered in the blankets in the middle.
More pics to come later of the trip to Mt. Rushmore and some good landscape shots from MT and the travel back and fourth.
Here's a teaser of some of the landscape shots.
Great pics JD. The Museum would definately make for a great trip.
It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.
