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.

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.

I abstained - can't decide. I don't want out of state large commercial sellers spamming it up, but otherwise see no harm right off the bat.

i like the montana only but being cody and sheridan are so close it would be nice to allow out of staters that come here all the time anyway to see the group grow and have more opportunites to buy sell and trade. im on the fence about it!
