What was a simple question has to turn into a negative California thread, don't some of you have anything better to do than to trash this state over and over again? Sheesh.

You are correct, we shouldnt be so quick to trash CA, mostly what we are
trashing in a mentality That goes something like this. "Lets go to MT on vacation. OHHHHHHHH isint it wonderful here lets moove" Thats where the fun stops. and real life takes over, and the complaining usually starts
and unfortunatly frequently. All people are saying is they are sick of people moving into MT because they dont like where they live and then gripe because MT isnt like where they came from. CRAZY. But, I do agree we should focus on answering questions and not bashing people and there nonsense attitudes.

Back to the OP, no you don't have to register your gun and in fact once you are a resident you can walk into any gun shop and buy one AND take it home since we don't have the waiting period that CA does. You can also carry (not conceled) almost anywhere and if warranted a CC permit is not hard to get. You'll notice (or be shocked) around hunting season many people wearing sidearms out on the street either going or coming from the woods.
Enjoy!

No body here is "trashing California" Californians are doing a fine job on their own. Bringing up and discussing the faults of that state and it's people is not trashing the state. This post is about gun laws in Montana ! I asked the sheriff's department in Sanders county several years back what it takes to get a concealed weapons permit. I was told that I would need a concealed carry permit even if the gun is in a holster. I'm not sure if I was fed a crock or if that is their policy. I seems that if it is their policy, it wouldn't hold up in Court. Just go the the State of Montana's web site and I think you can research all of the laws of this state.

From my recollection, there is no state law that says you can't carry IN FULL VIEW, but some counties/cities have their own rules.

Getting a concealed carry permit is not very difficult, and I actually enjoyed the course when I took it 8 years ago.

That's great to know! I live in Illinois which has some of the harshest gun laws in the nation. It's horrible. This is one of the things that my husband and I find appealing about Montana. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to wear guns around like Rambo, but I'd like to exercise my 2nd amendment rights.

Every household should have a gun. I got my own gun at the age of twelve, the same year I learned how to drive. The drinking and smoking came two years later ! !

Terrible isn't it, and that was 42 years ago ! Think about the peer pressures and bad parenting on the kids today. I had decent church going, hard working well educated medical professionals for parents and I still got into all kinds of trouble. I'm thankful I didn't grow up in a ghetto or I would no doubt be in prison or dead by now. We are on our way to being self sustaining landlords without having to work other than managing and maintaining our rentals.
I still like to plink off a few every few years onto a target just so see if I'm still a dead on good shot. I only have a pellet air rifle and an old Llama Especial made in Spain, a semi auto 22 cal pistol. It's cheesy but accurate and it jams with lead rounds. The weapon needs to be clean and loaded with copper or copper plated ammo to be dependable.
Just bring your gun or buy one here and be happy to have the freedom that we still have here.
