Montana is rich in natural resources; gold, silver, timber, coal, copper, sapphires, and of course the red ruby. But not all of Montana’s rubies are red. The beauty of the Ruby River Valley is one of our state’s great gems and the Ruby Valley Gun Club is a part of that lovely locale.
The Ruby Valley Gun Club is situated north of Sheridan and a couple of miles south of Twin Bridges just off Highway 287. The club was once located closer to Sheridan but moved to its present location in 2010. RVGC has been hosting ATA trap tournaments for three years and I attended this year’s event a couple of weeks ago. It was lots of fun. About 40 competitors enjoyed 90 degree weather, great comradery, and some terrific barbequed food. Targets were great, and the RVGC hosts made all of us feel very welcome, not unusual for us Montanans. Why heck, I even saw Bill Camus smile.
