    We moved to Florence last year,and we have a great range here,just minutes from the house.
    heck,everything here is just minutes from the house, lol.

    we have a 300 yard dinger that is quite a challenge when the wind blows,which is always.
    Also have a range out to 100 yds, maybe a tad more,and a nice covered pistol range.
    In fact all the ranges are covered,and the pistol range has a wood stove.

    No range fees,I'm allowed 2 members at a time.Sorry, .50 cal. not allowed. Neither is shooting steel,which just breaks my heart.

    tons of shopping for the ladies if they don't want to shoot, great town to have fun in.
    let me know.

    Mike,

    I think you may be mistaken. Your avatar clearly states you live in Washougal WA....:p.


    Great offering and glad you like the new place!

    Thanks for the invite, Mike!

    I'm usually down there twice a year so I'll try to remember to contact you before the next trip.

    Have you been to the "Florence Gun Shop" yet? Nice fellow runs the place, Steve may have been his name.
    Where is the range in Florence?

    Ditchtiger,
    steve sold out about a month or 2 back, the new owners seem nice enough,but their inventory was almost non existent last time I was in.I'll swing by this weekend and see how things are going.

    The range is at the North end of town, just past Fred Meyer...barely..on Munsell lake road.Private range but we are allowed guests,no range fees.:)

    SA SHOOTER,if you don't,you'll be ammo-less.

    yes, we shoot paper or clay targets only ,so no ammo restrictions. Dirt berms for back stop.The dinger same,any ammo.

    Cool. I'll have plenty with me. Some places don't let you shoot your own ammo around here but that's usually pistol ammo.

    What did "no steel" imply in your first post? Targets or ammo?

    Most of my years in childhood were at a home south of Florence, but north of Reedsport, in the dunes country. I've got a lot of fond memories of the area. I was out there the middle of last year for some hiking and thoroughly enjoyed said. Reedsport hasn't changed hardly at all, but Florence sure has grown up over the decades. I think I visited the gun shop you guys are talking about in Florence (one shortly after the bridge on the main drag) whilst out there. Hope to get out there again soon. There is something so good about hiking around the dunes.
