Hi guys,
New member here! Just want to stop by and introduce myself!
I am currently based in the greater Seattle area.
I didn't grow up in a family with Firearm education or culture, I was first introduced to firearm shooting in my early 20s.
I spend most of my focus on range shooting and for the longest time, I have been trying to get into hunting.
Looking forward to meeting you all!
Cheers! :thumbsup2: :thumbsup2: :thumbsup2:
Jack

Your story isn’t too far off these days. What kind of hunting?

I get my weekly dose of lead at Securite Gun Club in Woodinville. Very nice people and facilities. Sometimes I go to WCW at Bothell to use their 50/100 yard bay.
I used to live in Ohio, where there are a lot more outdoor tactical ranges near the city. If you guys know any places like that nearby, please share!!!

I started with White-tailed deer Hunting; a former colleague of mine invited me to his property and tried to teach me the basics back in 2019.
Since Covid, a lot has changed in my life (I am sure most of us can relate). I have made a few attempts to hunt on public land but no luck so far.

Naw, most public ranges around here suck ass for any kind of real training or shooting that helps you develop your skills.

Best bet is to get out in the sticks. I believe our range map here shows some locations.
