More and more often we are getting out of state gun owners who attempt to join Montana Gun Trader. I have thus far denied them.

Should we allow out of state gun owners to join?

I think we risk losing this altogether if we do out of state stuff...our current Montana leadership will not allow us to be targeted, If you start bringing washington, oregon and california into this, it's asking for problems

@peepso_user_3954(bml0807) I agree with you. I can see someone using the interstate commerce clause to justify the feds to mess with it as well.

Every other classified platform I've used has gotten ruined as it grew too big.

I want to keep this board, Montana, only. Opening it up to other states invites the Feds to be involved which I don't want ever. Also, there are many national boards already that are available.

I appreciate the relative purity of this site compared to other modalities that are more inclusive; I also appreciate having a voice in the discussion on this.

I don’t disagree with Jack’s sentiment on our immediate neighbors however, in these times, I believe that shuttering in, as it were, and strengthening our local community presents the best possibility for survival. The gun culture isn’t thriving right now, we’re surviving. Nothing is owed to others.

Time passes and things change so maybe including others (I would not go beyond our immediate neighbors) is viable in the future, but I don’t think now is the time.

I agree with UncleJack! In spite of the voting aspect of this, it is Randy's baby, AND I also welcome the new blood aspect of letting folks from elsewhere in, both for perspectives and for potential buying/selling variety. I also share his disdain for the "screw you, I got mine" p.o.v. that is so prevalent in the gun community. It ultimately only hurts the pastime.
