    I just confirmed last night that a bunch of folks from the SeattleGuns.org site are doing a shoot at the pit this Saturday the 7th. Lots of weapons to try out. I'll be there about 10am with my gear. Some guys will have bulk ammo on hand if you want to buy some to shoot various weapons. Hope to see you there.

    .17 to .50 will be on hand. One of the guys will bring down a bunch of his 9mm bulk to sell.

    Shoot, I'd love to go, but I already have plans with family. Haven't been out shooting for quite a while. :?

    For all the total fail that went on today for me work wise, I might as well have not gone to work, and went shooting instead. Glad you all had a good time!

    The tarp on the ground is a fabulous idea for brass catch! I'll have to remember that next time.

    I shot that 460 pistol (good gawd). The first 2 rounds were light, then WHAM !

    We have another shoot planned for March 21st. It looks like I will be shooting lots of 9mm next time as I picked up over 2000 rounds today.

    We also use a tarp when a group from work goes shooting, mostly scatter guns. It sure makes clean up a lot easier (wish I had seen or thought about it years ago!).

    Looks like a fun time.

    The pit in this thread is open 7 days a week daylight to dark. I'm guessing if you pack in a generator you could be there all night. No permission needed, no range safety except for you. IF YOU PACK IT IN PLEASE PACK IT OUT, in fact take a little extra with you when you leave.

    For those that don't know how to get to this pit I posted a new pic with driving directions:

    +1 for that.

    It's a sad fact that the majority of outdoor "range" closures on publicland (or private land that's left open to the public)result from illegal dumping and people who shoot up all of the equipment that is illegally dumped at these "ranges."

    Whenever I go to an unofficial range on public (or public access) land I try to pack out more than I packed in. At the risk of sounding like a socialist or a school-teacher, if we all pick up more than what we brought in, the place would be alot cleaner and be more likely to stay open.

    Thanks for all the information and directions and I totally agree about "IF YOU PACK IT IN PLEASE PACK IT OUT, in fact take a little extra with you when you leave". We should respect this inorder to make everybodies life easier.

    +2 - On the same day as the Pit shoot the Microsoft Guns and Shooting Enthusiasts group met up in Sultan. We had a great time, and left with a few bags brimming with trash left by less responsible shooters. If like-minded folk did this every month, it would make the place a much nicer range, ensure it stays available for use, and reflect well on the gun community in general.
