Living now in Bend Oregon, I haven't been shooting very long but have a group of friends who do shoot up here, and finding more all the time. Im currently working on my Sks - bought it Bubba'd and hopefully I can get it all working smoothly this weekend. Any one in the C.Oregon area who likes to get out and shoot clays or anything else and needs some people to go with, feel free to send me a message. And anyone who knows their way around an SKS, I might be begging for your help - sksboards.com is great but nothing like face to face help from someone who knows their stuff. And the commercials haven't started airing yet, but the gun show is back at the Deschutes Co. fairgrounds at the end of Feb.
