    How's it going guys?

    I just moved into Mcminnville 2 months ago, although I'm not new to the Oregon area, I've been coming here every year of my life since all of my family has grown up here.

    I moved from Texas, and just recently, California. But don't hold that against me. I swear I was only in California for two years!!

    A buddy of mine told me about the site so I figured I would swing by and say what's up!!

    Glock 30, You were smart to leave Kalifornia, Welcome to Oregon and aboard this Forum. I left and came to retire & live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest eight years ago, never looked back. :thumbup:

    Thanks!
    I hear ya there!

    It just made sense to come back here, I grew up in Seattle and lived there and in Washington for 14 years, Houston for 7 and California for the past 2. I'll probably wind up back in Texas, but I'll be here for a couple years (=
    Thank you!

    welcome!
    McMinnville is a great place to be, not too big but the Wine & Food Classic they hold here is fantastic! No public gun range but very close to logging roads up in the Trask and by Flying M ranch, so there's always places to shoot.

    Hmm I'll have to look into that.

    I met some guys here in town and they took me out to a private range that's just past Walmart. Nice little place that I'm thinking about joining.

    Yeah, it's just past there next to the steel mill. The name of the road escapes me but it's a private range, I don't know if I have the information on it saved but I can get it again and forward it to you.

    Welcome to Oregon and NWFA, I moved up from Norcal (707) last year August, no complaints at all.

    I am not in Mcminnville but just down the road, if you find the range info please forward to me if you don't mind.

    Will do, I'll get you guys the number to the president of the range, I know I have that saved.

    I think membership is in the area of $70 a year but the "shooting" portion of the range is closed to members, however they are still looking for archery members, and you still receive a key to the gate and full use of the ranges facilities. ;)

    It's very small but it does the trick for a local range, I enjoyed it when I went and shot there a couple weeks ago.
