    I live in milwaukie, and have only shot in a range. What are some good places? How do you find out if you are allowed to shoot places?

    thanks

    There are a few around, but lately you have to go further and further into BLM or National Forest land.

    Though, there are several gun ranges in the Portland area. Tri-Counties, Douglas Ridge, English Pit in Vancouver, Beavercreek over in Hillsboro and 'The Place to Shoot' over near the Expo center.

    Browns Camp pit, Memaloose Rd pits (most likely the road is snowed over a bit leading up to the first main pit)

    Several of those ranges have out door ranges to shoot.

    To find a good outdoor shooting location which is safe and permissible many people go driving into the forest lands. They search high and low for places to safely shoot. And once they find those places many don't want to share for fear of them getting shut down, or littered upon, or whatever.

    I know some people that ended up buying their own land to support their habit. :)

    I agree with Morpheus here. But in this current weather situation, any of the *backroad* Forest labeled roads can be a tight squeeze and many are that and steep as well with really loose gravel and rocks. Couple those with that youd likely have a steep cliff of sorts on one or both sides of you. When those roads are completely snowed over it makes driving a really dangerous hazard if you dont have 4WD or AWD for that matter.
