    I need to know what other bases have a personal owned weapons (POW) range like Fort Carson. I will be getting PCS orders soon and I need to lock my choices with branch. Any good ranges in Tacoma, Washington area? I am thinking of heading that way...

    Army all the way!

    Ft Lewis has Trap and Skeet ranges that were refurbished a couple years ago. They are open every day. They also open a Rifle range for public use on weekends for rifle & pistol shooters.

    Ft Irwin also has ranges, but it's been a while since I shot on them.

    Ft Leonard Wood has Trap & Skeet daily (new machines this year) and opens a range for rifle shooters on the weekend.

    Ft. Campbell has a really nice one. At least twelve years ago, they did.

    Reminds me of the 20/20 show they did while I was at Bragg.

    Opens up with Sawyer (I think it was her) standing at the sign on Bragg Blvd leading onto post.....her opening line?

    "Welcome to Fort Bragg NC, home of the 82nd Airborne Division, the most physically fit group of alcoholics in the free world."

    We have a 300 meter POW range and a skeet range here at Ft Riley, KS.

    If I remember correctly, after the troops got back from Desert Storm, the shoppette on Gruber Rd got into the Guiness book of world records for the most alcohol sold in a 24 hour time period.

    FT. Sam Houston used to have a pistol/rifle range a few years back. Was pretty good and well maintain.

    Ft Belvoir, VA has an indoor pistol range that allows privately owned weapons, or they did in the mid to late 90s. The bad thing is that's the ONLY range they have, so M-16 qualifying was done indoors with 22 adapters ;g ;5

    You can shoot at Ft Lewis..but noooooo double taps or rapid fire.

    ..In the Tacoma area?,...hit the www.uspsa site. Look for the state club finder and enter WA..there are quite a few in the AO.

    Good shooting.
