    Thanks! I'm getting more into it all the time however I am having a difficult time finding outdoor spots to go and shoot. I live in Portland and would like to find somewhere within an hour from home. I don't mind a range but sometimes a gravel pit can be pretty fun! or to be able to even just set up cans or clay spots. The only place I really know of is the Memaloose gravel pit in Estacada and it gets pretty crowded....any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Check out the outdoor shooting area section. There are a lot of good places to go. Most of them you want to get there early for a good spot.

    I would post a link to that thread but I can't on my phone. :confused:

    You can also go to some of the clean ups. It's a great way to meet members and learn about shooting areas ;)

    Welcome aboard Susan, you already found the key to proficiency... Practice, practice and when you think your really good, more practice...

    Shields are a real good choice for concealed carry, the addition of a laser and/or night sights only makes 'em better!

    Lol thank you! And I love your picture! I'm going to get my concealed permit soon! That's the main reason I got it! I'd like to take a "women's" course on safety and technique. But not opposed to others. Any suggestions appreciated....

    Michael at MK Tactical in Hillsboro runs courses during the drier months, as his classes include live fire at an outdoor range.

    BeaverCreek Armory in Hillsboro did have woman only classes they ran at one time. Might be worth giving than a call...

    My recommendation is to get that CHL in process ASAP, there's new legislation that's about to make it more difficult to meet the requirements for a CHL.

    Oh great! Thank you so much for the information. We went to the gravel pit East of the Memaloose bridge to shoot today. LOTS of garbage left there but someone left a whole watermelon and hard boiled Easter eggs we used as targets! Whoo hoo! Great fun!
