I'm planning on moving up to the Seattle area in the next year, and want to know where you can go shooting up there? I've always preferred unregulated free ranges, but would love to hear were everyone likes to shoot.
Anyone know what the laws are about shooting on your own property? I'm in Snohomish County, but I'm interested in laws in the King/Pierce/Snohomish area. Do you need a minimum number of acres, have to be outside city limits, different requirements for different caliber?
I've wondered about this as well. A friend and I decided to just head out on 2 for a while, and we got out past Monroe and found some spots that looked good, but were posted "no shooting". So we drove a bit more and found a nice area with a wide space and good back-stop, and shot there for several hours, no trouble. We drove back out next weekend, and the area we used as a target was plastered with "no shooting" signs.... What's up?
How far out do you have to go? I know NF land is good, but we should get some specific locations. Does anyone have co-ordinates that they could post of an actual spot that has good visibility, is away from buildings, rivers, and trails?
Kenmore has a great trap/skeet range and a walk through archery range. They are strict re: their emphasis on hunting = no rapid fire. The first time my buddy shot two quick rounds, he was warned that the next time he would be kicked out. If you want to do that, you can go to Wade's in Bellevue.
