Has anyone created a map of ranges and stores?

    I don't believe I've seen one for around here.

    Let's grab coffee or some lunch and I would be happy to share what I know of the area from having lived here for quite some time.:)

    National Shooting Sports Federation has an app "Where to Shoot" that can locate certified ranges by state, city or zip, and within distances you specify. There's another app that I'm currently frozen out of due to the IOS 8.0. updates called "Range Spots" that's similar.

    Just installed Where to Shoot on my Android device, thanks for the tip! Now to hope it works well, lol! I don't see Range Sports in Google Play though, oh well.

    Google maps has worked fine for me for stores and ranges. It would be be nice to have a map of free outdoor areas to shoot though.

    Yeah, putting the single term"gun" into Google maps brings up all the local stores, Tri-County, Threat Dynamics,... even "Oregon Airsoft Arena." But a map of the established outdoor shooting locations in the area would be a great addition.

    If a map like that existed here, then shortly afterward you would no longer have a map of free outdoor shooting areas.

    You would have a map of garbage dumps.
