Does anybody know of a range in Portland metro/other NW Oregon area that rents TSMG's? My preference would be 1921A/AC/28, but even an M1's better than nothing. (My best friend's transferring to a college in the Portland area, and I'm thinking combining visiting her and a trip to the range would be a kickass way to spend the day occasionally. Who knows, I may even be able to introduce her to the joys of full-auto...)

Another question: has anybody ever thought about compiling a database of Thompson-renting ranges on a day-in/day-out basis (ie, not special events like Knob Creek)? Or is there one already out there?

Thanks much!

Well, let's start a list right now. Bullseye in Lawrenceville, Ga rents an M1A1 for about 10 bucks an hour.

We are just West of Portland, OR and have both an M1A1 and 1928 that we rent for $10/mag. We usually only rent at the big shoots, but can set something up at our test range on a case-by-case basis if someone is interested.
