I value the Nevada Outdoors
because I love being out here with my family, but I am not sure how to
communicate that value to our lawmakers.

Las Vegas is a favorite location
for the annual
NSSF SHOT Show -
that's the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show that
had 1.600 manufactures exhibiting and nearly 20,000
attending in 2005.
*Webmasters note: Floyd McDonald taught me the
basics of gun safety, shooting, handloading, and ballistics in the
late 1950's during uncountable Sundays trips into the desert in
Southern Nevada. The photo was taken in 1957 during a camping
trip at Mountain Springs. Floyd and Cleo's son, Herman,
married my sister Kathleen in 1964 and they remain so today, giving
me three nephews and one niece, and now seven grand-nieces and
nephews. Floyd never missed a deer season and practiced every
week for that one shot in the fall.
