Relocating from the Seattle area; any suggestions where to shoot?
Thanks in advance!
I'm nowhere near Ft. Smith, so I have no answers, but welcome to AR!
I think I picked the state with the best abbreviation.
AK would be a close second, but it gets too cold there to even consider...
The only range I'm aware of is the Old Fort Gun Club and I've never been there so it's hearsay only.
Haven't personally been there but there is a public free use range about a hour drive east:
Pleasant Hill Shooting Range
Couple ranges to the south:
OP, I have Zero experience with these ranges but do have experience with forestry ranges around Hot Springs, AR. One that I've used is/was very nice and one was pretty nasty. Another one that I never went to was said to be equally nasty by others on internet forums. IOW forestry ranges seem to be hit or miss. Come prepared with all you need and be careful.
Here's one I've driven by near Calico Rock Arkansas:
It looked nice. Clean etc. I'd prefer to have a buddy along when visiting these public ranges. 1 guy to change targets 1 guy to keep an eye on guns. I would CCW the whole time. Missouri has pretty nice ranges too.
