    Hi all. Recently acquired a few rifles and shotguns from my father in law. I've been to a few of the pistol ranges, but am not sure where to with these rifles.

    Thanks.

    Without knowing the area to well as I just moved here from TN but it seems the tillamook state forest is probably your best bet, Once I get settled in and get a resupply of ammo I think i'll head up there and hike back some ways and find a place.

    Threat dynamics in tualatin has opened a new indoor range that will allow up to 308 calibers from riffles. $30 to shoot, and another $5 to bring your own ammo. Only certain kinds of ammo are allowed. Range is 25 yards I believe. Good to break in a new gun, or pattern some buckshot spreads.

    I'd love to join Tri-County, and am currently on their wait list. I may try out the Browns Camp spot.

    Thanks for the info.

    The rock pit at Browns Camp is closed for shooting currently, I believe for logging purposes.

    It is closed. I was out in that area yesterday. Not sure how long it's shut down for though.

    Go a little further out and find a spot off Salmonberry.
