    Going out into the boonies - Free (Plus the cost of gas.)

    Shooting what you want, how you want - Priceless.

    When I'm in the mood for an indoor range I go to the Marksman. Though when I was there it was $10 for the range safety orientation, $10.50 for the range fee (covers 2 people on Mondays), and $10 for rental (free on Wednesdays). They haven't charged me for eyes and ears when I've needed them.

    Otherwise it's Capitol Forest for me.

    I go to marksman too when I make it up. Do they charge anyone for eyes and ears? I never have been. I CC in and shoot and reload and CC out, only thing I carry in is extra ammo. They dont seem to hip on OC, one guy there told me that it too big a gray area when I asked if they wanted some fliers since I didnt see any there. I did see Daves book in the gun rental cabinet though.

    Edited to add: the guy that told me OC was tobig a gray area, was OC in the store.

    http://www.cwsaonline.org/

    $60/year, 15/25/50/75-ish foot pistol range, 100 & 200 yard rifle ranges, bowling pin & falling plate 22LR ranges, skeet range & a patterning board (I think). Not quite "out in the boonies" freedom but pretty low key, 'police yourself' attitude (no douchey range masters).

    As long as you are well away from restricted areas, Houses, people, pets farm animals, etc and outside city limits it is generally ok. Make sure you have a backdrop too.

    I would just to be on the safe side check with your local Sheriff, mine said as long I met the above requirements I am good to go.

    I usually pop in Champion Arms since it's down the street and on the way home from work. Recently I have been making the drive out to Olympia to the pits on the weekend. If anybody knows of a closer place for free shooting near Renton or Kent, please let me know.

    Sedro Wooley area? My wife & I spent a couple of weekends trying to find a shooting spot out that way, but it looked like the stump humpers had closed all the roads.

    Belong to the Clark Rifles out on Larch Mt...have 100 yd small caliber/site-in, pistol and 100, 200, & 300 range. It is semi-private and hold regular matches.

    We also go in to the woods on same mountain or, if shooting with friends from OR, drive half-way out to the coast on OR 26. There is a great old quarry we shoot at.

    For just shotguns, I drive to the end of Lower River Rd past Vancouver Lk (old time dragstrip) and shoot away.

    Also a member of the Place to Shoot in Portland, but haven't been there for a while. It has gun rentals and about 30 lanes, but youhave to use their ammo and targets.

    When ever we go to the woods we help clean up the areas when done.

    I wouldn't say rude, maybe a bit brash (the taller guy mostly) but not something that turned me away when I first started going. The older gentleman that totes around (OC) what I believe to be a 1911 has always been very courteous and helpful though.

    I go up to the Rockport area, another 40 minutes but there are several good places to go for whatever kind of shooting you're into.

    Surprised I haven't seen it mentioned yet - mine is Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club, located on Seabeck Highway in Bremerton. Just officially joined this morning, as a matter of fact. Shot there several times over the years, but now with more time on my hands, I'll be there weekly, if not more. This mornings range session certainly illustrated the fact that I have more to learn and plenty of room to improve.

    Some of the reasons I like KRRC -
    They don't have a 'only shoot every three seconds' sort of rule I've seen at other ranges in Western Washington. Some of us are training for self defense, after all.

    No limit to magazine capacity. Some of us spent good money on mag fed weapons, and want to practice with said feature, not be relegated to semi-auto single shot weapon. Again, some of us are training for self defense.

    No Drill Instructor pretensions. Enough said.

    They don't call themselves a 'Sportsmans Club'. My primary reason for owning weapons is for self defense and the defense of my country. The sporting side is, to me, an enjoyable secondary function. The name 'Sportsmans Club' may suit others, but does not embody my view of firearms. My humble opinion.

    Lastly, I realized that by supporting my local range, I am supporting an activity and people who share some of my core values, as well. Happy to do it.
