Anyone looking to learn to shoot?

I'd be interested in taking people who want to learn to shoot out shooting with me. I live in the Washougal area, and where I go to shoot requires a car in good shape, it's a good ways back in the hills. Benefit to such a place? Free to shoot (only pay for ammo).

If you're looking to learn, I will teach you how to safely handle a firearm, both loaded and unloaded, I will teach you how to aim, teach you how to hit your target every time, teach you what you need to know and dispel any myths that you've heard. I will do this for FREE. I will also help you select a firearm for whatever you want it for (plinking, home defense, hunting, whatever) - okay maybe I should amend to say I will help you select a firearm for whatever LEGAL reason you have to own one - I'm not interested in helping murderers or rapists.

I would prefer to meet somewhere public first, get to know each other... make sure you won't axe murder me when my back is turned....

I highly encourage women, especially those normally intimidated by men, that want to learn to shoot to get in touch with me. I can teach you much of what a class can without you having to pay for it. Things that you would still want a class for is proper identification of threat, when you can legally shoot in self defense, and other misc. legal things. While I am a guy, I would just like to reassure women that a majority of my friends are women (which I hope indicates my respect for women), and you're more than welcome to bring a friend or whatever you want to make you feel comfortable.

Would prefer that individuals bring their own gun and ammo, but at the very least, chip in for ammo costs.

I myself don't have much.... Shotgun shells are easy to come by though.... I did manage to get 40 plinking rounds for 7.62x39, and I have some 270 and 30-06 (40 each). Now to find some .223 and a bulk box of 22. I can find it all over armslist..... but I'm not gonna pay $50 for a box of ammo that, if I wait, will cost me $20-25

If ammo availability wasn't what it is I would be in to meeting up, if anything to have another place to shoot and possibly get the wife out and about. That plus scheduling with a sitter and work load being up in the air most times.

I normally go to the Larch rock pit. I even found it on Google maps once.... Someone was there shooting, they have a red truck, lol

I also go to the rock pit. Great place to shoot during the week, when there are few if any people there. I have been wanting to go shooting for months now, but don't want to use up the ammo we have. Hopefully soon.
