    Can someone point to a place in the PDX area where you can rent handguns from a range and test them out? I would like to test out a few calibers before settling on one.

    PSTC in clackamas allows rentals. YOu have to bring 1 weapon on your own to let them hold in order to rent though. There's a lot of logic in that.

    What in particular are you looking to rent?

    By the time you go to a range that rents, pay the rental fee, pay the range fee, and buy their ammo (which most ranges that rent guns make you do for rentals) you have blown a big chunk of the money that could pay for the gun you are wanting. Itt is much better to just find a friend that has the guns you want to shoot and go to the range with them. :)

    +1. Dealing with PSTC in Clackamas the only ammo they had last week was .45acp and 22LR, what a selection.
