Montani Semper Liberi

It means, “Mountaineers Always Free.” In case you are not a hillbilly, it’s on the state flag, its the state’s motto and was adopted in 1863.

And so it continues. Looks like WV will follow Montana’s lead with their own LEGISLATION.

He has chased coon hounds until daylight, waited out whitetails perched high in an oak, canoed the New River and hunted from the Montana Mountains to the Green Hills of Africa. During service in the Army and later as a municipal police officer and Special Agent with the railroad police, Richard obtained numerous certifications in small arms instruction. He has trained military personnel, law enforcement officers and civilians in the application of firearms for defensive, competitive and recreational use. Richard won the West Virginia Governor’s Twenty Award for law enforcement, the West Virginia National Guard State Pistol Competition and earned his Distinguished Medal with pistol. Badge turned in, Richard is now a contributing editor for several magazines. He was the compiling author of the book, Rifle Bullets for the Hunter and conceptualized and contributed to Selecting and Ordering a Custom Hunting Rifle. Richard also contributed a chapter to the John Velke book, The True Story of the Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency. Richard has patents on a riflescope reticle and a revolutionary bullet testing media. A hillbilly at heart, Richard lives on Shadowland - his shooting range in West Virginia - with the most understanding wife in the world, their three kids and a very protective ridgeback hound.

    I like the idea and wish it would catch on with more states. It would make some of the smaller firearm manufacturers popular within their state and allow more businesses to stay open, thus more jobs. I think most shooters are for less Federal regulation in their lives.

    Thanks for the link! Though I’m not as rabidly pro-state as many in our circle, I do think this is a good idea.
