Relocating to Montana

So if these stupid gun bans pass here in Colorado, I am thinking about relocating to another state. I love Colorado, but firearms freedoms are a big part of my life. So anyways the states I'm looking at are Alaska, Montana, and Utah. Wherever I go, I need Mountains, wheeling, and most of all freedom. Of course I will also need to find work in one these states. So let's hear some input.

I live in southwest MT in Butte. I left MT for AZ when i graduated high school, and it only took me 6 months to figure i made a huge mistake. I love MT and will never leave again. Only downside is the long winters, but that keeps all the people out

What sort of job are you in the market for? If you move here, that may determine where you end up. Bozeman actually has a pretty healthy high tech manufacturing community at the present and the sporting goods sector is also well represented. Blackhawk, Simms, and Mystery Ranch all have sizable operations here.

HAHA, JK JK... I haven't driven a JK, but I think I'd still rather have my TJ over it. Montana is awesome though, don't pay mind to TJ. HOWEVER... I've lived in AK as well and between the two, if I had a choice, I'd move to AK in a heartbeat. It's like MTx10.

Welcome

Bring your Jeep and Bring your guns there is room for one more. Billings is good to look for work as is Bozeman, Havre and there are tons of jobs on the East side in the oil patch.

MSU?

If you want to try a couple trails that have little pucker factor and great scenery, I suggest South Meadow Lake (from Mcallister) and Sailor Lake (from Cardwell) trails in the Tobacco Roots. You can drive straight to S. Meadow Lake but Sailor has a short hike attached. Should be able to just google them.

I'm not sure when I'll get my trail Jeep (the 3B) back together after destroying the front axle. Supposed to receive a R&P 44 housing tomorrow to start assembling another.
