I got my 1st AR-15 but don't want to shoot it routinely. Partly because the ammo gets so expensive and the wet and cold winter months in the NW. I try to follow some threads in this forum to see if there is a place (within an hour or so from Beaverton, OR) where I can shot a few rounds during weekends but my conclusion is no. Browns camp is usually full of people especially when weather is good. Other places are closed because of trash issue. I also heard sometimes people shooting in the same area have no concept of gun safety. One of the threads hinted that we should not post any location (which is still clean) we know because the only outcomes is those places being trashed. I agree with this suggestion. So, my questions is how can I find a place on my own. I don't have a truck or SUV so off-road exploration is not possible. I heard in general you can shoot on BLM land and away from traffic. Anyone can provide a tutorial on how to "search" for a nice and quite place where I can plink?
