Hey, fellas: I'm going to be in Idaho (Pocatello) next month and wondered if anyone here knows of any SMG rental places out that way. As I recall, Idaho is a Class III-friendly state, right?
I have heard that the Curtis Earl collection has been moved from Boise to Seattle. Anyone verify that?

Thanks,

Ron

Ron,
Actually, the Champlin Fighter Plane Museum, formerly in Phoenix, moved to Seattle. The late Earl's machinegun collection, not the one that was attached to the Champlin Phoenix Museum, (those weapons were sold off), is indeed in the Boise, Idaho Museum; his other home state.

Hi Ron, yes, Idaho is very class 3 freindly! and no, Washington state wouldn't want to have any thing to do with (gasp!) machine guns! sad..............

It figures. I'll be around that area 2 days after their annual subgun match. Can't change my plans, neither. I guess I'll just attend all those full-auto matches in Illinois...NOT ! ! !
Thanks for the help anyhow, guys.
