    Hello all,

    Billy here from Anacortes, I relocated to the PNW from Arizona about 3 years ago with my family of two young boys and my wife.

    My oldest son is turning 8 yo in the next few weeks and will be receiving (supervised) my Savage 72 that I received when I was also 8 yo. Basically things are coming full circle.

    So my first order of business is just gaining knowledge of where I can legally and safely shoot here in Skagit county which appears to either be Greene's or the Plantation in Whatcom county. In Arizona, I was spoiled by being 20 minutes from the Ben Avery range...

    Enjoy the usual time with family, fishing and hopefully soon some shooting.

    Past experiences with firearms ranged from small and big game hunting to skeet and basic target shooting with a variety of firearms.

    Glad I found this site... :)

    Billy
