by Doug Houston |

The First: WANTED: We have a donated American Eage Ruger .270 Rifle for the July Smokejumper Reunion Silent Auction. Is there anyone out there who would donate a scope for this rifle. The combo would bring a much better price and give someone a great combo. The Ruger is American made and is a really great caliber. If you have or would be willing to donate a scope, contact Doug Houston, dwhouston73@gmail.com or (406) 370-9141.

See ya there. Registration time is running out. Register before July 1.
