Another beautiful few days in Montana.
After doing a bit of skeet shooting yesterday, I was given the chance this morning to learn how to shoot a handgun, which I hadn't done before. Dave, who is an ex-police officer (and incidentally, a blood splatter expert) got out his pistol and revolver, getting me to shoot a target stapled to a tree (I love how laid back they are here).

After the tour and a nice late lunch, I decided to take a 3rd boat tour. This tour was of Lake McDonald. The lake is 10 miles long and over 450 feet deep. Like all the glacier made lakes, it is shaped like a bathtub. The views from the middle of the lake are always interesting.
