Anyone know of anyplace near Tacoma I can go shooting at night? I’m pretty new to the area and would like to train a little bear with my goon gear ;)

Yeah I just don’t know if there are any rules prohibiting shooting at night in some of the public areas out in the woods.

Yep. Each public land forest has rules and they're pretty much the same. Gotta check with the forest agency website for any variations. Be sure you know what land you're going to (BLM, USFS or DNR).

General rules and links to some NW public lands are on the Shooting Regs page at Trash No Land: https://www.trashnoland.org/shooting-regs/

As for hours, typically sunup to sundown. Most will say same as hunting hours, 1/2 hour before sunrise and 1/2 hour after. Some have special hours like not before 9 or 10 AM and not after 4 or 5 PM.

I've found that it's plenty dark at quarter after sundown and you'd still have another 15 mins of shooting time in the dark.

You can shoot up in Capitol at night, just not the triangle pit. Buddy and I were shooting up there around 2AM and DNR ranger stopped to see what all the racquet was about when B stocks were legal.

Most areas of Tacoma have night time shootings.

Anywhere in Tacoma city limits is fine. Just tell the police you are homeless and they will leave you alone.

Portland is okay with night shooting too!

Found this in a rooftop just shy of downtown. Lots of public land downtown!

Ah HA! Now we got your finger prints!

Nice find!

I'm glad mine missed the coil on the AC unit. (I hate brazing a 9mm hole in a condenser coil!)

When I was in Iraq i had a buddy catch an AK round like that to the chest. Didn’t kill him but confused the shit out of him at first. He thought a buddy next him had punched him. Wasn’t wearing body armor at the time so had to get it cut out. Was back on the job the next day.
