    I would just like know where you like to go Shooting. Different Ranges, but mostly where outside you like to go.

    Wade's is the closest range to me. Unfortunately the range fee is like $15!

    As far as shooting out side, I've shot in the woods around sultan before, but you need a good 4X4 to get to where I was at, or be willing to hike a ways.

    The two outside places I shoot are:

    Exit 41 off of I-90 (DNR site can provide specifics)

    Capitol State Forest (East of Olympia about 15 minutes)
    See: http://www.dnr.wa.gov/Publications/a...t_rec_plan.pdf

    "Target shooting
    Recreational target shooting occurs throughout the block, with the majority
    of it occurring along the C-Line Road. Target shooting on the C-Line extends
    from the C-Line Road junction with the county’s Sherman Road, all
    the way to Camp Wedekind. Triangle Rock Pit, a gravel pit near the intersection
    of the Sherman and Waddell Creek county roads, is also a popular
    shooting area."

    Let me know if you need a guide - be glad to go!

    I recently got a membership at Snoqualmie Valley Rifle Club. It's just down the road from Snoqualmie Falls Park on WA-202. It's an outdoor range, not too big, one rifle area (~200 yds.) and one pistol area. For now I just own handguns, so it's fine for me, although a guy at work prefers the Cascade Rifle and Pistol Club in Ravensdale since it has a 600 yd. rifle range.

    Jim675:

    Can you be more specific about the shooting area off of I-90, exit 41? I have been looking for a place to fire my hi-cap rifles ever since they closed the Sultan Basin area and the Granite Falls quarry.

    Thanks.

    1st Saturday of month 500 yd match at Machias, 1st Sunday of month 200 yd match at Poulsbo Sportsman club, 2nd Sunday of month 500 meter match at Eatonville. All of these are Black Powder Cartridge matches. Give it try come over to the dark side. If you don't have a rifle and want to try it, I have extra rifle and ammo you can use.

    For just plain fun, (when no one else is there) the Tono range down in Centralia is good, as long as it aint too swampy.

    I just go out in the woods east, about a hours drive, but it's out and gone where nobody is going to bother you.....good camping area too. I refuse to pay range fees and put up with BS rules and range nazis........besides the fact that any range around here is incredibly crowded at all times.......

    Not so: especially if you can go on weekdays, the Tacoma Rifle and Revolver Club is often fairly empty, and even weekends when there isn't a match going on it's not overly crowded usually.

    You do have to be a member to shoot (though the annual membership seems fairly modest to me, and there are no other fees unless you're participating in a match), and you do have to put up with rules that befit its suburban setting (though nothing remotely as pick as Kenmore's.) Still, for those times when you aren't free to spend an hour driving into the country...
