OK, if I have to stick with picking firearm, Freedom Arms 475 Linebaugh, 12" ported barrel, Halo sight, that holds up to recoil. Since it's mega millions, I'd add a Barrett with day and night scope.

it is.

After giving this a lot of thought I would go after the
Smith & Wesson Registered Magnum Registration number 1.

This gun was the first production .357 magnum produced
by S&W. It was a gift given to J Edgar Hoover by Douglas
Wesson in 1935. This model later became the model 27.

It is my understanding that this gun is owned by a
member of the Smith and Wesson collectors association.
The owner isn't identified because their is a question
about the legal ownership of this gun.

It was given to J Edgar Hoover when he was the director
of the F.B.I. The question is that the Federal
Government could come back and claim ownership because
of Hoovers position at the time the gift was given to
him.

If I won the lottery I would be happy to take my
chances.

I've always wanted Freedom Arms revolver and why get it in common chambering like 460 or 500 S&W? If I wanted .454 Casull or 480 Ruger, I could order either in Ruger SBH at Cabela's for $870 and pick up in a week.

OK, I can understand that! I'm told those Freedom Arms
revolvers are made like an NSA spy satellite, super
precision & cost is secondary. I've also been told that
it's about impossible to blow one up, but I'm not gonna be
the one to test that theory either!

Fella's;

Just checked, it seems the Dana Place sold for $45
million when it did a few years ago. I don't know what
it'd take to get it now, but almost certainly more. But
if I had a cash-out ticket worth significantly more than
that, I'd probably do it. I do wonder what the taxes are
on it? Once the neighbors found out the ranch business
had become raising gophers, would I be subject to death
threats? Oh, the place is known to have an elk or two on
it also.

I have been told that the new Secretary of the Interior
is going to address public lands that are land-locked by
deeded land in the very near future. If that happens, it
would affect several square miles of Federal property
within the Dana boundaries. And none too soon as far as
I'm concerned.

I am also way past ready for the issue of landlocked
public land to be addressed.

I can see the landowners side but I also think that as a
tax payer I should be able to access public land.

That's going to be a tough one.

Close to 60,000 acres, or something around 93 square miles.

Wow, That's a lotta ranch.

That's about $750 per acre. Not a bad price for ranch
land. Any chance the new owners would let you on it to
hunt?

If you read descriptions on many of these large ranches for sale, they'll list over 60,000 acres, 45,000 deeded ect. They consider landlocked or other "public" land, within their boundaries, as part of ranch and theirs, making access an uphill battle.

One of the biggest beefs, I've had for numerous years, it's common to remove marking from public lands and even "post" them. On the "west" side, many FS road signs are removed or roads are "closed" by locals. MT has made some progress over the years, but much legally accessible state land is fenced out or made inaccessible by road "upgrades". Road is simply "upgraded" to other side of property line and because you can't park on or cross private land, from public "right of way" you can't access it anymore. Allowing crossing at the corners or parking on right of ways, would open up much of it.

Generally under common law, an owner must provide access
to land locked property. Courts usually make acess to be
a direct path that disturbs the private land the least.

Has MT tried to use this?

MT's stream access law, is as close to that, as I'm aware and it was uphill battle, hinging on definition of navigable water. It has been challenged and in areas largely ignored, some property owners, even fencing across fishing streams. When suit is brought, by sportsmen's group, court order is often just removal of fence, which is often just put back up again.

BEAR;

In the fairly recent past we had the corner-crossing issue
hit the state supreme court. The court came down on the
side of the landowners. You may not violate the
landowner's property rights by even so much as passing your
disgusting body over their land, even though you don't set
foot on it.

You can't shoot across private land either, it's trasspassing by bullet that say.

Wyoming is the same as Montana. You can't "corner hop". it
makes no sense to me but that's how it works here.

I got on short end of access dispute between landowner and MTFWP. It was in 680 (Cow Trail and Bullwacker Coulee Latitude/Longitude: 47.9533,-109.14619 )and access to the breaks, landowner had allowed access across three sections of land, on access road, I can't remember if it changed hands or just generations, but new owner of record, wouldn't allow continued access, since access wasn't deeded, court ruled against MTFWP and public. At the time, other local landowners, that had allowed access in past, supported the one MTFWP tried to "force" into it, by shutting down their lands too. This was three or four years ago, I think ranch has since sold to some "group" trying to tie breaks to Canada, to allow free range buffalo.
