Dear MSSA Friends,

If you are associated with a Montana shooting range, your range leaders SHOULD be actively supporting HB 234, the shooting range funding bill.

HB 234 will be up for debate on the floor of the House during Second Reading tomorrow (Monday), beginning at 1:00 PM.

The leaders of your shooting range club or entity should be contacting every Representative (not Senator, yet) from your area asking them to support HB 234.

HB 234 has three times as much money for range improvement grants as FWP has been willing to allow in the state budget, PLUS HB 234 is structured to prevent FWP from making off with the range money and using it for some other, FWP-preferred purpose.

Please contact your range club leaders and ask them to get messages to ALL Representatives from your area urging their support for HB 234.

Get messages to legislators via the Message Center, 444-4800, or with the Online Message Form at:


Gary Marbut, President
Montana Shooting Sports Association
Author, Gun Laws of Montana
