    Congrats!!! As general manager I believe you are entitled to hold a free gun giveaway open to all members of OCDO. Right?

    Congrats!

    So, what's the stance on suppressor usage at the range?

    HB 1016 passed July 23, 2011 which made it legal to Washington residents to shoot (not just own) suppressors.

    FYI: Champions has been getting some bad rap because of the hesitant responses...

    oldkim, the following is from their website:
    A word about suppressors - The use of a suppressor on our range is now good to go with one requirement: You will be asked to provide the appropriate documentation from the BATFE pertaining to the suppressor you intend to use. Most folks don't seem to have a problem with that. You are welcome to shoot your can both wet or dry; whatever you prefer. Read the change in the state law here.
    No right is held more sacred, or is more carefully guarded, by the common law than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law.

    form 1/4's are tax forms and you are not required to show anyone unless they are from the IRS. i like to keep that kind of stuff private.

    Well deserved, my friend! I can't recall ever having to pay to shoot. I'll give it a try if you have a sprinkler system!! Inside joke, people. May we bring our own targets? The usual, full cans of spray paint and the like?

    Champion Arms just became my "go to" place for firearms purchases. After all, I've got to support my friend.
