    Is there a legal place to shoot rifles near Salem or around the Silverton area?
    The Four corners and rod gun club membership seems overpriced for rifle shooters.

    If you go to the range ten times a year its only $10.00 a time

    Almost all property within 30 miles of Salem is Private.

    NO where is going to have the facilities that Four corners does for rifle (out to 200 yards) The next best place is south of Albany.

    Four Corners is fairly close to where I'm at which is convenient, but I wish to shoot about 400 yards.

    Albany Rifle and Pistol Club (ARPC) currently has a 200 yard rifle range, multiple handgun bays, a shotgun range, a 25 yard indoor rimfire range, clubhouse, bow and arrow area, and they have plans in the works for 400, 600, and 1000 yard rifle range that was announced last month. I don't know the timeframe for the expansion. ARPC is only a 35 minute drive from Salem and dues are reasonable, especially if you use the club facilities often. The more you use the gun range, the lower the overall cost per visit so to speak.

    If you want outdoors, you can go up gooseneck rd half way to spirit mountain casino. Won't get very far out but it's free

    As far as ARPC goes I'm currently looking in to it.

    I have not been there, but my friends tell me about Scotts Mills all the time. Go to Scotts mills and get onto crooked finger road. Take it 1/4 to 1/2 of a mile and there should be a couple turn offs you can take. One is a quarry with lots of area to shoot and the other one is a nice flat area with plenty of backdrops. I do not know if you can get 400 yards out there, but its free and a great place from what I've heard.

    I've been up there and I never found anywhere you could get close to 400 yards.
