    Does anyone attend this club and do they know if they accept new members? It seems they have a 300yard outdoor rifle range. I never knew about this club and see its not that far from Tri-County. Anyone have any comparisons of the two clubs? Seems the fees to join Canby gun club are quite low in comparison to Tri County, but I am already a member of Tri-County.

    I've been a member for close to twenty years. I think there is still a waiting list and you have to do some mandatory work parties. My biggest thing is the no rapid fire rule. 1 round per second maximum, which means you can't even practice a double tap or controlled pair or whatever you want to call it...:( Darn neighbors, the club was there before your house was...

    well,it's a whole lot smaller club than tri county which may be why the fees are smaller.....less upkeep and overhead.
    they have a really nice clubhouse with full kitchen,after we cowboy shoot there we have a very nice pot luck brunch.
    It's geared more towards being a trap club than a rifle/pistol club,but it's worth looking into it it's handy for you.

    Just called them.. 3 year waiting list.. So I am scratching Canby Gun Club off the list.. I guess I will be contempt with Tri County if I have to live in PDX area again. I am happy to be in an active club like Tri County, because my COSSA club in Bend is way too empty and, being a newer shooter, I benefit from help of others. However, there is times I am sure I would like to be more alone and in the open, without those noisy concrete barriers of Tri County and that is where my COSSA range is nice. Anyone know of good open shooting areas, not infested with weirdos or methheads, that is good for shooting in that area? I know people go shooting at Eagle Creek, but I hear the area is getting sketchy. Is there any good gravel pits or shooting areas around WIlsonville, Canby, etc?

    If there is a 3 year waiting list than why is it that they as a club can not seem to get more than 10 shooters for winter league? They did not even qualify for your first league shoot cause they only had 2 or 3 shooters.:dunno: Not enough shooters, 3 year waiting list and they came to us and wanted to be a part of our winter league! Sounds like they need to have open enrollment!

    Spend a day attending the Cowboy Shooter's safety course and gain access to the Action Range at Tri County as you are a member already.

    Once approved, You can shoot in any one of the 14 action bays...alone, no hot line/cold line, yellow line or action flags, etc.
    Shoot at any distance you like, from muzzle touching the target out to the total depth of the bay.

    That's about as alone as it gets.
    What's not to like??
