I'm new to this forum having just finding it in a Google review search of TCGC. I will more than likely join. I've been shooting for a long time and I am getting tired of driving out to spots I know I can shoot at only to find that it's closed or more crowded than the mall. The English Pit in Vancouver is OK, but the $17 fee will add up and I'm a rather frugal dude who likes to buy most things, including range fees, in bulk.:thumbup: Besides, I would like to improve my shooting by eventually doing competitions and getting some pro training beyond the benchrest. I am a CHL holder in OR and UT and an OFF member. A couple years ago, I assembled an AR and almost enjoyed the shopping and assembling as much as shooting it Other interests are...ANYTHING outdoors related and some fun DiY projects. As I mentioned, I'm a frugal guy(saving for a big down on some real estate), and I plan on getting into reloading in the very near future. My decision to join this forum is the same reason I like going to ranges, to learn from people who likely do it better I also like the banner asking for help in cleaning shooting areas. I plan on doing this since I usually drag out all I can fit in my hatchback anyways. See you at the range.
