    I'm taking my father shooting for the first time...

    Was thinking about going to the marksman saturday because of the fact thst I can rent guns to test out but I was really hoping to find someplace outdoors and as close tobfree as possible as this is sort of a birthday present to myself. Will cost $30 minimum just for my father and I to get on the range at the marksman as he needs to take the manditory range safety class as well as range fee fer him and I. Already talked to Tom and was hoping others might have a good recommendation as to someplace I can take my father wher he and I can enjoy just shooting.

    A bunch of us from the WAGUN forum are going to Capitol Forest Saturday to shoot Mosin Nagants. I'm sure there will be other guns for you to try, I will have my .45 1911 and my Taurus 24/7 9mm. I will let you guys try my guns, and if you bring ammo "you can go to town".

    I don't know where that is. I have no car and my father lives in elma so... and I just got off the phone with him and it seems that heading there saturday would be a nice idea. I just need details on how to get there from Olympia.

    Maybe you could just type me up some directions?

    Congratulations hope you both have fun. You guys are a little far south for my recommendation. Took my wife for her first shoot to Champion Arms in Kent.Knowledgable, helpful courteous staff, willing to help out the new shooter. She loved it, started her with Walther P22, then to the 9mm, and the .45 she had a great time and now is asking to go again. I think she'll be wanting a sidearm for herself soon maybe birthday present.
