So, I'm looking for areas that would be in/around Pierce County, namely maybe a max of an hour from the Tacoma area. I have a membership to the Tacoma Sportsman's Club out on Canyon Road, but it is pretty crowded some weekends, and the restrictions on what you can and can't do are somewhat draconian. I'd like to find a place where some people could go and shoot without too many rules, and it's far enough away from other people to where we won't get the police called and get in trouble.
I have gone up past Greenwater, east of Enumclaw in the past, but that is a ways out, and this time of year, the road is dangerous with snow and ice. There is a place supposedly out around Olympia off exit 104 that is a designated shooting area, but it is busy as well. Still, I plan on checking it out this weekend, weather permitting.
Can anyone else think of anything, maybe out towards Roy or that area? I know a lot of places have been closed off since 9/11, since a lot of land is actually part of one of the bases around here, and what used to slide before doesn't get allowed any more, as things have gotten much more strict, and the bases have taken up more land.
