    I'll be in the Seattle area tomorrow (8/3/2013) and was curious if there were any ranges around that have a 7 yard (21 foot) distance for shooting. My range in Portland, The Johnson Creek Gun Club, only allows for 17 yard (50 foot) shooting.

    My final destination is near the Boulevard Park area. I used to live in the Seattle area for some 20 years so I know my way around pretty well. But I wasn't into guns at all when I lived there so I have no idea what's there. Since my event (50th Wedding Anniversary party for some friends) is at 1pm, I thought I'd get in a bit early and possibly do something and what better thing to do than to go shooting? LOL. But I'm wanting to get more close up practice.

    I don't know about Seattle, but West Coast Armory in Factoria supports that distance.

    That one would be perfect, if it was open to the public. It says it is a membership only range (bummer).

    Oh, and when I say Seattle area, I'd be good from anything from Federal Way to Lynwood, Renton, Kent, Bellevue, Kirkland, and Redmond.

    My step-daughter could hit a bullseye target at 50 yards, shooting one handed, when she was only 14. What's your difficulty? :confused:

    Just want something different and at typical self defense range as I've not been able to see.

    Well, I appreciate the responses. I didn't get a chance to shoot as I left Portland later than I had anticipated and also ended up deciding to go to the OpenCarry.org monthly get together up in Bothel. That was fun to meet Flopsweat and the others that were there. And the 50th Wedding Anniversary party for my friends was absolutely fantastic. We had a great time. I'm tired and on my way to bed now. Thanks all.
