    I ran into Tick Licker firearms just a few blocks from home here in south Salem. The prices I checked on specific firearms seem VERY good. Another member here mentioned that their transfer fee is $10 but I haven't verified that.

    I shoot an M1 Garand and am trying out the PPU ammo that has been getting good ratings and Tick Liker has that at a very reasonable price for 20 rounds as well as bulk quantities sold in ammo cans.

    I really hope these people do well and are there for my next firearms purchase.

    Also, I dropped in on Tritac indoor range in north Salem by the fairgrounds. Nice tidy 6 lane range with individually controlled targets in 20 yard lanes. They permit up to .338 in rifle, have a rental full auto. They require you buy their ammo or pay $5 to use commercial ammo you bring.

    I see a posting from another forum member about a simulator at Tritac, but did notice that while I was there.

    I will be going over there this next week to rent a pistol with three dot sights to learn whether that type of sight is something I want on my carry.

    "Tick Licker" was the name of Boone's trusty rifle. It was a gift from his gunsmith older brother Squire Jr. Legend reveals Boone boasted of his markmanship by bragging he could shoot a tick off an animal without hurting the beast, hence the name "Tick Licker."

    I shoot at Tritac and enjoy it. The ammo fee is $5 per caliber, btw.

    The $5 fee is waived if you have a membership there. Not too bad if you shoot there a lot.
