  • Newb in Seattle area

    Hi All, been a shooter for a while with mostly pistols. Did some white tail hunting many years ago. Just got interested in precision long distance shooting and picked up a Tikka CTR 6.5 20" that hopefully will be here this next week. Still looking for scope & rings.

    I'm in the Seattle area and still researching options for 200 yard ranges and then will work up to longer distance. Figure it'll take a bit to start up my skills.

    Check out the Kenmore Ranges. Technically, they are known as "Wildlife Committee of Washington". To shoot at 200 or 300 yards, you'll have to join and shoot on the members only range. I've been a member for a long time and cringe over the idea of shooting with all the black rifle cowboys on the public side....

      Welcome aboard. There are alot of members "up there' your way and they have lots of places to shoot if ya get to know them. Big group on Facebook too. Due to the antics in Seattle and Portland we like to just say PNW if ya know what I mean.

        Cascade Pistol and rifle in Ravensdale has a 600 yard range - problem is they have ~ 500 people on backlog as its capped at 1000 members (but get your name in, rumor has it they may expand). They have 2 200 yard ranges and a 600 yard range (you need to qualify to use the 600).

          If you are in Seattle, then Seattle Police Athletic Association (SPAA) is likely the closest. Better set up for pistol than rifle, but they do have a 100Y rifle range, with 2 spots for 200 Y.

          Not ideal, and they only do new member orientation once per month, but very close to the city.

            Thanks for the welcomes and the advice. I'll follow up on some of the range recommendations.

            1J04 - Didn't realize there was a facebook group. What is the group name? Is it private? Require any referral or approval for entry?

              A bunch of the PNW guys years ago did their own thing and started up a FB Group, I don't FB or go to Ranges. I'm in the sticks and just shoot off Porches and up in the Hills. It's something like Puget Sound something, can't remember, but you may find some info in the link I provided, or you can just ask some of the guys in one of the "Local Matches" threads. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Enjoy your time here. A lot of good people and a knowledge base 2nd to none. Again, welcome aboard and cruise around the site. The "Sticky's" are great sources of info as well and should be mandatory reading in each Topic Section.

                Also a newbie in the Seattle area (Everett to be more specific) so these links are great. Kenmore isn't a bad place to go either. I've been shooting trap there for years. If anyone can remember the FB group name that would be appreciated as well. Thanks!
