    I have usually only been two mammaloose. Or I think mammalose It's in estacada area. I turn on the one car lane green bridge right along the river...Then go up and up and around till you find a spot you like. If anyone knows about the area I would appreciate it if you could tell me if it is open. Tommorow is my B DAY. Im lookin forward to having a good time. I feel like I constantly hear back and forth if this area is open or not. I need a definate answer. I dont want to get in trouble.

    When get over the green bridge there is a sign that says "NO Sooting for 6.8 miles) .
    When u go 6.8 miles u will find a rock quarry u can shoot there or further down the road.
    Be SAFE

    Sorry if I sound like a noob but what is a rock quarry. My guess is like a rock wall. Who would want to shoot at that. (ricochet)

    No, It will break down long before it makes it up that road.

    All kidding aside.....It should be just fine this time of year. When the snows come that is a different story.

    It is just a rock pit. Most of the time it is carved into the side of a hill. There may be piles of rock in the pit. From the looks of some of the other threads I don't think you will have a hard time seeing it when you get closer.

    Have fun

    Ruined? Hop down to jo...uh...Bi-mart and get a cheap canopy. No reason to sit in the rain. But putting of shooting because of rain...and you live in the PNW? Perhaps AZ is more to your temperment.

    what i usually do is just call the sheriff and ask, just to be sure because they'll slap you with a big ol' ticket if you cant shoot there

    The information in this thread is correct. Memaloose is open after the 6.8 miles. There are a couple of rock quarries that you can shoot at up there. Wildcat isn't too bad, but it is at a quarry also. There tends to be a lot of 4 wheelers in that area, so be careful shooting there. If we weren't at the gun show this weekend we would be picking up trash at Memaloose.

    As a side note, and shameless plug. next weekend there will be a Full Auto shoot at Memaloose. With over 40 machine guns :)

    Feel free to come by and shoot some of them, or just bring your guns and shoot those too. It is going to be a blast:thumbup:

    I will bring 1000 rounds of .22. I would die if someone let me shoot their silencer or machine gun. I would be the happiest ever.

    Dude!
    I 'bout sprayed coffee all over my keyboard when I read that! Thanks for the laugh. I figure that if you live here, you don't get to do sh..., uhh anything if you can't deal with a few raindrops!:thumbup:

    Although, I'd not be too upset if I can finish my roof before the rainy season really starts.
