    Wouldn't exactly classify a 2.5hr drive as close to Seattle.

    Check out Cascade Rifle and Pistol Club and the Black Diamond Gun Club.

    I do agree that it is the nature of Seattle, but I still would not classify a 2hr 23min drive (Seattle to designated LT Murray shooting areas) as near. If you are willing to make the drive it is an awesome place to shoot since you can get out to 600+ in the designated area. Other places you can get out further. However, much of LT Murray is closed until May because of elk. Here is a link to the designated area. http://goo.gl/maps/3XJoI

    If your willing to drive to the 'LT Murray' spot mentioned, you could just go the tiny extra bit into Yakima and shot 1000 yards on the range there.

    Why?

    Because you have to be a member?

    You can be a guest.

    I put my name on the list and was invited to join within a year.

    I haven't been there in over a decade though.

    Pistol and Rifle ranges are closed until further notice. Have been for some time as I understand it.

    As per their website

    http://www.seattlerifle.org/

    I think it relates to a claim by a near by homeowner that a stray round hit their home.
