I know this has been posited before, but I'm trying to decide between TCGC and DRRC. They are almost exactly the same distance from my home. My three primary reasons for joining are I'd like to get into more long range shooting and cannot find a suitable area on public lands within a reasonable driving distance from Portland. I also would like to get more into shotgun shooting. My wife and I have been trap and skeet shooting in the past and enjoyed it and would perhaps like to do it some more. I am also getting tired of my favorite public shooting spots getting closed down because of idiots out there. I have a few questions about each and I am hoping some club members can chime in. Also, any pros and cons between the two in addition to what I've specifically asked are welcome, however opinions without specific reasons are not helpful (i.e. "that club sucks!" without any reason why). Thanks! TCGC: -The site says initiation fee is $225. Annual dues are $170. For a first time member, is it $225 and you're good to go for the first year or $225 + $170 = $395 for the first year and $170 a year after that? -I understand there is a decent amount of competitive shooting that takes place. While I may enjoy competition in the future, will the schedule be prohibitive to my enjoyment of the range when not competing? -Are there only certain days and times that I will be able to fire 200/300 and 600? If so, will I have trouble finding an open shooting spot? -Can I shoot prone, sitting, or kneeling on any of the ranges or is everything limited to bench rest firing and standing? -Does membership fee include certification for the action range or is there a separate fee if I choose to qualify to shoot there? Is there a fee to enter competitions? DRRC: -I understand the 1000 yard range is only open on specific days and times. When it is open, are there any other ranges open to shoot rifles? -Are the ranges limited to 100 yard and 1000 yard? Can you shoot, for example, at 600 yards when the 1000 is open? -Can I shoot prone, sitting, or kneeling on any of the ranges or is everything limited to bench rest firing and standing? -I understand the shotgun range is closed. Is there any indication it will open in a reasonable amount of time? I would hate to pay for a year and not be able to use it until the end of my membership or something. -When shotgun is open, is it trap only or do they have skeet ranges as well? -Does membership include admission to classes or is there an additional fee for those?
