    Hello, I found this forum from a google search for local gunshops and now find myself lurking daily. I purchased a Mosin-Nagant at a gunshow in Centralia this past November and have been shooting it frequently. Now I find myself in the market for a handgun (seriously considering the Ruger P95 for price/quality) and this forum seems like it's full of knowledgeable firearms enthusiasts that I can soak information from.

    Thanks! Where do you shoot around here? I've been going to the gravel pit lately but will be acquiring a handgun soon so would like a range where I can actually setup targets.

    I've got a neighbors kid I've been trying to hire as a target holder (little pain in the butt), I don't think he is as dumb as he looks though, he keeps turning down 5$ and a free lunch.

    Hey welcome to the forum. I live down in Centralia. I dont know how you liked it, but if you havent been to impressed with the gunshow down here. If you ever get up north, go to the gunshows they have at the Puyallup fairgrounds. It is put on by WAC(washington arms collectors). Lot more vaiety and much better pricing(most of the time). Just something to think about.
