    Cougfan2 (Oregon) and I have been discussing the possibility of a tri-state OC meet We thought that somewhere south central WA or north central OR would be the most central location for all three states. Input from everyone would be most helpful.

    It was my understanding that OC in Oregon was somewhat difficult, perhaps that is just my lack of information but don't you have to be unloaded in OR while OC? Obviously I am fairly biased so my vote is here in WA.

    Loaded OC is fine in most of Oregon. State preemption only covers permit holders. There are a few cities that have loaded firearm bans, but most places in Oregon have no such restrictions.

    we're looking at Washington as the host state since it seems to be more OC friendly (except for vehicles).

    So, I'm thinking Kennewick would be awesome since Dave the Welder lives there.

    I visited him and met steelcoreap (and his father) and we got together with some other gents and went shooting at a place not too far from his house. It's an outstanding little bowl with about 400 yards to safely shoot and a backdrop of the Columbia River down the hill.

    Check out the pics (and videos) from my trip out there (took 4 hours to drive there from Edmonds): http://s29.photobucket.com/albums/c2...008/?start=all

    having a place to shoot would be even better but I would expect to see 100+ people coming and we were looing for a campground that would accomodate a group that large.

    Well, that rules out Kennewick, since the one state park listed near there is Sacajawea and it allows no overnight camping. But there may be county or city parks in the area that do allow it.

    I was fortunate enought to have Dave the Welder allow me to camp out in his backyard, but I certainly wouldn't expect him to allow or be able to handle 100+ people camping out there. Though, his property would be the most well-guarded in the county (save for the Hanford Nuclear Reservation).

    I'd say Kennewick. We have a city park right on the Columbia river where you can camp. The shooting places are nice, and we have access to ranges out to a mile. Those who attended my bi-annual shooting event can attest to the pretty area, and to the great instruction that we all received on the range from some local firearms experts.

    I'll +1 and attest to that.

    The area (as you can see in my pictures above through the link in my post) is gorgeous and the two gentlemen that gave us instruction were top-notch and well-qualified... and it's hard to beat "free" as a cost.

    Oh man, I would LOVE to have something like that in this area.

    I OC all the time and have never been hassled. The only time was actually in WA at the DOL. Gotta stick up for my state.

    As a Washington resident I, at least until an out of state CPL is aquired, only have OC available to mein Oregon. Been doing it for like 6 or7 years and never a problem. Of course, I avoid Portland like the plague.

    Dave what is the name of this park? Is it....
    Lake Wallula, Kennewick Washington Along the shore of the Lake Wallula in Kennewick, you can find the Columbia Park. This park is around 609 acres in size, and has both fishing and water-skiing facilities. Other entertainments that can be enjoyed at the Columbia Park are golf, tennis, camping, nature walks, picnics and cycling.

    Hi all! I am the one who started all this hoopla with M1gunr (actually he broached the initial idea and I became a willing co-conspirator). South Central WA sounds good. M1 and I have talked about Potholes or Maryhill state parks as both have camping available and other activities nearby, but I will defer to you folks in WA that know your park system far better than I. A place with close by accessible shooting would obviously be desireable.

    I would suggest we shoot for the Spring. Maybe sometime after Memorial Day when the weather is decent for camping and not too bloody cold.

    What say you all?

    The problem with that is that the start of the school year here at WSU is in two weeks.
