    New the site, here from Yakima Washington. Seems like a great site.

    Never have owned a gun, only shot one a few times. Hope to change all that in the next few weeks

    Nice to see a newbie from the dry side of the state. I used to live in Yakima, went to Davis back in 2000's and still got family there.

    We make it out to shoot from time to time. Have not done enough this year. It usually happens on the mornings I get off work.

    Here are a couple of our last outing pics here in Yak

    I have only bought one gun this year and it was a FTF sale in Tri Cities. I have been buying other stuff this year (ATV, Motorcycle, scuba, ect) so have not been shopping much.

    I always liked Randy up at Stadlers on River Rd but you really need to watch his prices and his stories.

    I get a funny vib from Brad at Guns West 2 on Fruitvale so I dont shop there. I have a couple of buddies that have bought a few there and been happy.

    The guys over at Best Way Pawn on 1st and Yakima are good and are willing to wheel and deal.

    I have only stopped in at the shop in Selah one time because of his odd hours. He is a very pleasant guy with decent prices.

    I tried Hammers in Union Gap a couple of times. The problem I have with them is the guy (dont know if it is the same one) seems to think he knows what you want/need more then you do. 2 years ago I tried to go in and buy (get info to order) a ~$2000 rifle. He thought what I really wanted was a ~$500 rifle he had in stock cause the one I wanted was "no good". Well I am sure you can guess how much money I have spent in there..........

    Like any other shopping know what you are looking for. Know what the average price and availability are. Know what you are willing to pay.

    Take N Wenas road to Sheep Company road. Follow Sheep Company though the gate for about 1.5 miles and the first road on the right it ~1000+ yard range. It is state land so you need one of the Bull S$%T passes to be out there.

    There is lots of public land to shoot on around the area. There is also Sun Targets out past Moxee if you are a fan of paying for formal ranges.
