I finally got my first shotgun and she's a beauty! I joined the forum, broke the piece down several times to clean & lubricate it, bought some cartridges (1 oz slugs, OO buck & #8 shot) and now I'm reqdy to get some trigger-time. I've been into handguns and have had an old 30-30 for many years, so I already have ear & eye protection and a fair assortment of cleaning materials. I diddy-bopped on down to the local range to see how it shoots and guess what...no target shooting with a shotgun allowed! I can shoot trap, skeet & sporting clays, but no target practice on paper targets. I'd like to shoot a few slugs, to see how the point-of-aim relates to the point-of-impact...and some OO buck, to see what the pattern looks like at different distances. Is there anybody in the King/Snohomish County area that can recommend a suitable place? I have a small 4X4 pickup and am thinking of just heading up an old logging road till I find a good spot, but there are a LOT of logging roads around here and I'm not sure where a good spot would be, and where it's OK to shoot. I haven't been up in those hills for many years, as the local range has been more convenient, but it's boring and politics are always a problem. If you've got a favorite spot, but don't want to broadcast it to the world, please pm me. I can keep a secret, I'm considerate and I always clean up after myself and usually bring out a lot more shooting debris than I bring in. Inconsiderate shooters will always get shooting areas closed down, ie: the Sultan Basin. Maybe we can go together, compare notes & equipment and strike up a new aquaintance! Can anybody help a brother out?
