Hey, I may have the chance to go to Bellingham, Washington and I am wondering if there is any NWFA people here from the area. Is anyone a member of Custer Gun Glub or the Plantation Rifle Club? I am looking for a club where I can do free-style/tactical/draw pistol and (if I can) rifle shooting. I am hearing Custer may have this possibility. Does anyone know any good areas to shoot in the area, like gravel pits, etc? SOmebody mentioned near Baker Lake, there may be areas. It seems Olympia offers a lot more rural shooting options then Bellingham, but I really like the beauty of the Bellingham area. Here's another funny question: realistically, how hard is it to get a permit so you can bring guns to Canada to go shooting up there or to carry in the (non National Park) wilderness areas. I talked to someone who lives near border and said because they were a CHL holder in WA that they had their car stripped searched and were questions for over an hour by the border patrol. This seems to be heresy and I wonder how accurate the story is? I also wonder what business Canadian gov't has knowing about American gun owners. Seems like an infringement of our rights. Anyway, that is another topic, I was just curious. I'd mainly like to know from other perspectives of shooters/gun hobbyists in the area, there take on living in Bellingham and the shooting options available. Does anyone know how well the covered shooting areas work at the Custer and Plantation clubs? I do know Bellingham has a lot of rain. I was a member of Tri County Gun Club in Portland which really sucked for shooting in the rain, because the pistol bays were uncovered and the rifle ranges didn't have the best cover depending on the direction of the rain/wind. Basically, I could never shoot pistols in the rain, unless it was long range 25yd pistol shooting, which I don't do anyway. Thanks.
