    I'm new to the NW and have finally settled into our house and am ready to get shooting. I see mostly brick and mortar indoor ranges but would prefer to be outdoors. I like the idea of heading into the forest to find a safe spot but being new to the area and unfamiliar with local laws, tradition, manners, etc., I'm a bit hesitant. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
