    I've been out of Wyoming for two years, but I lived up there for 15 plus years and started hunting up there.

    I only saw it snow on opening day of deer/elk season (usually Oct 1) once or twice. However, we did take the whole family up for deer camp, one year, and it started to snow in the middle of the week. We didn't have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, so we beat a hasty retreat.

    Antelope season starts in the last third of the month of September, and the weather is still pretty mild. The last time that I was able to get an antelope, my son got his at around 9:00 AM and we were still wearing jackets. I got mine around 10:00 AM and we were down to t-shirts. For several years before we left Wyoming, it was too warm to hang our antelope for any length of time in a shed or garage.

    Bow season starts in mid- to late-August, and you can hunt in a good shirt.

    Weather in the Rockies is sketchy at best, and you can't trust the forecast for any length of time. In our neck of the woods, it snowed in Rawlins and Casper, but it was bright and clear in Laramie - or it has also happened the other way around. The Rockies plays havoc with the Jet Stream.

    The one thing that you can count on is the wind. It is never less than 30 miles per hour, and it shuts down traffic on I-80 when the gusts hit 55 mph. And it blows every day of the year. Calm days are a rare thing, but most common in August or September.

      Summer: Warm and windy. Winter: Cold and windy. Spring and fall: A mix of warm and cold (and windy). Higher elevation equals colder temperatures in any season. (I don’t live in Wyo., but I’m close to the state line in Colo.)

        Like most everyone else, I buy a scope to feel a need. Only a few times have I taken advantage of a sale.

        Bubba, I've been curious too. This is our first and so far I like it during dry fire. We're going to see how it is at the range in a few days....

        On 7/19, Milldawg mentioned he'd ordered a laser sight for his wife's Ruger LCP 380 and they were on sale at MidwayUSA. Well, that inspired me to order...

        Good question. The old style Ruger LC9 has a very long trigger pull that's similar to that of a double action only revolver. I think it would be unlikely...
