Good Morning, Montanans! Let's dive into the issue of "Smokeless Powder and Primer Production", which is one of the Bills the MSSA will introduce this session. Please feel free to comment and tell us your thoughts on this very important issue as we prepare for this year's session........... Here is the proposed Legislation, and I've included a link to an ammoland article, written by Gary Marbut a few years ago that explains exactly why this should give every gun owner serious cause for concern.
SMOKELESS POWDER AND PRIMER PRODUCTION: There is a serious threat to our right to bear arms because of narrow, monolithic and federally-controlled manufacture of essential ammunition components, smokeless powder (propellant), primers and cartridge brass. For example, there are only two manufacturers of smokeless powder in the U.S., one plant owned by defense contractor General Dynamics and another owned by defense contractor Alliant Systems (ATK). All other smokeless powder used in the U.S. is imported, and subject to immediate and arbitrary import restrictions. And, General Dynamics and Alliant Systems are subject to a standard condition of military contracts that 100% of their production may be commandeered for military use at any time. Without ammunition, our fi****ms and our right to bear ammunition are worth nothing. We propose certain incentives to encourage small-scale production of ammunition components in Montana. That model includes offering liability protection to future producers, providing that such producers qualify for existing state assistance with financing, and will include a 20-year tax amnesty from start of business, which would give up zero current tax income to the state but would provide jobs for Montana.
I'm the Legislative Coordinator for the Montana Shooting Sports Association We are gearing up for the 2015 Legislative session with several pro-gun Bills slated for debate. As gun owners, we need your help to ensure our Second Amendment Rights are preserved here in Montana and elsewhere. Will you please take a moment to review our page and familiarize yourselves with upcoming legislation, so that you can do your part to let the Legislators know that you support these Bills and they should, too? I have listed 14 Bills on the page for your review, consideration and comments, and I welcome you all to provide your feedback there. I am more than happy to assist you in understanding the legislative process and how you can help. As the Montana Legislation convenes only 90 days every two years, things will move very quickly once the session begins. We desperately need your help! Please give the page a "LIKE" to stay informed as this session progresses. Thanks so much for your time and participation! We look forward to hearing from you!
Look forward to meeting you at the neighborhood Bar-B-Que on Jetway Drive. Had no idea I had such a creative neighbor!
Great way to start the day.
Can't say enough about BRV and the day they organized for my family (15 of us). Our equipment, the scenery, the food and the day was awesome! We rode to the top of a mountain to find a spread of barbeque chicken, ribs, hotdogs and hamburgers waiting for us. They thought of everything! Would highly recommend this company for a day of fun!!!!
Lookin good bro! I'll have to give you a call one of these days!
I love Black Rhino Ventures... Matthew is a great guide! So patient and easy going!!! Thanks for an awesome day - lots of folks on our team say they won't forget this day for a VERY LONG TIME... You're the best!!!! You and Mike are amazing at what you do!
I recently took a trip to Montana with Black Rhino Ventures and I have to say that it was one of the all-time best vacations I've ever experienced. The folks at Black Rhino, particularly President and Founder, Matthew Barbour went above and beyond in every regard to ensure an unforgettable, truly adventurous experience. Snowmobiling in the amazing MT backcountry, skiing at Big Sky (complete with valet-ski service to and from the chairlifts!!!) door-to-door transportation, gourmet OVER-THE-TOP meals prepared by our own executive chef on-site at our AMAZING mountain home on a private ranch overlooking the MT mountains made for a truly unforgettable experience. The Black Rhino team never ceased to surprise me during my stay. I can't thank Black Rhino enough for surpassing my expectations at every turn. If you are looking for a truly OUTSTANDING adventurous vacation, you MUST turn to the folks at Black Rhino. I assure you, they will not disappoint.

Had a chance to ride the 2013 Ski Doo ETEC today. Simply put, this is a must have sled. With loads of power, stable yet flickable handling, great rider ergonomics, an amazing track that loves deep fluffy powder and bunch of bells and whistles to boot, this sled is the greatest thing to happen to snowmobiling since, well, the invention of snowmobiling. The 2013 ETEC goes everywhere and anywhere you want. Ride it in the trees, sidehill for a mile, carve powder turns all day or just blast up a hill that you thought you would get stuck on. I need one and if you ride snowmobiles, you do too.


Heading to West Yellowstone tomorrow to attend the Snowmobile Expo. Drop us a line if you are planning to be in the area.

Randolph Green - 1979-2012 | 4FRNT Skis Bindings Poles Apparel

We are saddened to report the passing of another ski industry great. While we only had the privilege of knowing Randolph for a short time, his impact was profound. His engaging personality, his love of the sport and his infectious enthusiasm will not be forgotten. We only wish that we had more time to spend with this amazing person. You will be missed Randolph and may you rest in peace.

Randolph Green - 1979-2012 | 4FRNT Skis Bindings Poles Apparel Randolph was one of the most positive and passionate people you'd have ever met.

We even deliver local entertainment.


Ski day in the books. Snow coach tour of Yellowstone - check. What now you ask? Private four course dinner prepared by our chef and complete with wine pairings. The ladies are living large with their Black Rhino adventure.


After some snow in the mountains, we have been treated to sunny skies and 40's temps. Our clients arriving tomorrow will have spectacular skiing conditions. Don't miss out on Big Sky's spring skiing. There is still time left to book.


H2O has arrived in force! Alpine Associates has the full line of H2O skis available for demo. Stop in and see us at the on-snow demo on March 16 & 17th at Big Sky. Powder skis that shred powder, rip groomers and even hammer bumps? Yep, that is the magic that is H2O. We hope to see you on the slopes.

Operation Powder Hound - 2012


We are excited to report that we filed for our trademark on Operation Powder Hound!


Please note, the "Operation Powder Hound" fundraising effort on Crowdrise will no longer be in service. Since this adventure is now complete, we will no longer be working to raise money. Thank you.


We received a donation from one of the vet's families that came on our Operation Powder Hound. We are thrilled that Black Rhino Ventures was able to make such an impact on his life. Here is the feedback: "Your dog sledding adventure revitalized my son Sam ~ I am humbled by ALL that you do." Kudos goes out to Bill Clark. You are clearly the only face of Camp Patriot and without you, this organization would not be able to do what they do. There is no other person who represents this charity quite like you do. Thanks Bill.

The only guys that mattered.


Operation Powder Hound is officially in the history books. The Black Rhino team invested a massive amount of time, resources and money into producing this event and we learned some things along the way. Reflecting back on the few days that we spent gave us some clarity - events such as this should always be about the people who matter the most, the vets. If we keep this focus, we can hold our head high knowing that, despite the challenges and obstacles that arose in various forms during the 3 days, Black Rhino Ventures continues to do the right thing. I want to personally thank the following people who contributed more than the rest and didn't constantly need to be in the limelight - Jason, Jeff B. and Karen.


Day 2 treated us to 30 degrees and sunny. The riding was spectacular and we had a nice visit with Dan, a vet himself, from the Forest Service. Thank you Dan for your service and we appreciate your checking in with us.


Day 1 is in the books. Clouds and blowing snow gave way to sunny skies and spectacular weather. Today is slated to be more of the same. The film crew made it in safe as did our surprise guest, actor Cole Hauser. Should be a good day.


Our guests have arrived and are all checked into the hotel. Our day starts at 7:30 tomorrow morning for a drive into the mountains. With plenty of fresh snow to play in, Thursday should be an amazing day.

Timeline photos 02/22/2012

This is what we like to see. A massive weather system is hitting the West and is leaving monster accumulations in its wake. With heavy snow falls and a weak snow pack, avy conditions are through the roof. Don't travel in avalanche terrain unless you have to.


We spent the morning in the mountains making final preparations and we were pleasantly surprised with around 18" of fresh snow from the past two days. To our esteemed guests, the camp is set, sleds are ready to go and all the arrangements have been made. Come on up to Montana and let's have some fun.


We are greeted by the morning cold for yet another day in the mountains. Final preparations continue and are made exciting and a little challenging by a forecast calling for up to 2 FEET of snow by Thursday morning.


There is snow in the forecast. We aren't going to say much about it for fear of jinxing things. Suffice to say, we made our offerings to Ullr and we hope the big guy delivers. Pray, dance, do jumping jacks. Whatever you do, do it for snow!


And so we are off! Today starts our all hands on effort to make our final preparations for Wednesday's arrival of our guests. Stay tuned for photos.
