    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!

    Thanks, Spats!

    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...

    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:
    https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/osfnf/recarea/?recid=43493

    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.
