    Eagle River here. Already got it spent. 4000 bullets, mag well and base pads for the XDs..........and paid off the lawn mower I used twice this year!
    If your interested in shooting competitions and not busy this weekend, come out to the Mat Valley Sportsmans indoor range in Palmer. Shooting IDPA match Saturday 8:45 sign-in, and USPSA on Sunday same time.

    I lived in Anchorage for ten years. Got there courtesy of the USAF. 21st Security Police (1979-1983). Went to UAA. Almost bought land in Wasilla but backed out at last minute.

    I lived in Talkeetna when I was a kid if that counts('70-'72). Still have friends that live their. One is well known for climbing Denali, another works at the radio station.

    Welcome to the forum, Chicken-Farmer.

    I lived in Anchorage for 12 years, left the State the year before the Permanent Fund payouts began, so I missed out on that.

    I drew a brown bear permit on Kodiak in the spring of 1979, my partner and I hunted out of a cabin on Red Lake for 10 days. Never did see a bear, but the fishing was fantastic!

    Figured I'd try to expand the Alaska page here. I've lived in Fairbanks now for about 12 years.
    Mostly handgun shooting for me. Springfield TRP Operator .45, H&K .45 USP, Springfield XD 9mm, GLock 19 9mm, TZ75 9mm...etc. etc. etc... I love USPSA/IPSC shooting.
    Hope to hear from someone soon!

    I flew into, and out of Talkeetna once... Great little town. More sled dogs than humans... We hopped out of Achorage, into Talkeetna, resupplied some climbers at Denali base-camp, and flew back to Anchorage.

    No better scenery on earth. Truely God's Country...

    I hiked in to the Russian River (12 miles as I was told) back in 1967. I had a Ruger .44 Mag on my belt. Got to the river and ran into a fella with a big Rifle on his shoulder that said he was hunting Bear. His barrel had a hole in it as big as the one in my .44 and a bunch more brass behind the bullet. For some reason I went from real confident to feelings of way under gunned. I think you better at least double that .22 tn.

    My niece and her family recently moved to North Pole by way of the US Army. He went from Iraq heat to Fairbanks cold. Talk about shocking his system.

    I like Fairbanks...'cept for da cold.

    Agreed. The cold of a Fairbanks winter SUCKS! I've now lived in Alaska six years and I'm ready for warmer climates and easier (read cheaper) access to goods and services on par with the lower forty-eight's standards. Summer's here are HEAVEN but what a price to pay the other nine months of the year!

    Nice to meet you all.

    Juneau here. The question is easier if ya ask "what aren't ya buying, 'cause it's buying time all the time!".

    Guess I'm a late comer to this forum. Hope some of you are still here. Been living outside Wasilla since 09/89.
