Oregon ranks number 29 in a 2014 list of the best states for gun owners compiled by Guns and Ammo. "There are no permits to purchase or registration requirements in Oregon." Firearms and pistol enthusiasts have plenty of ranges to choose from.

Here are six spots for firearms and pistol practices in the state of Oregon:

1. Albany Rifle and Pistol Club: Located in Shedd, Albany Rifle and Pistol Club's Saddle Butte facility has six ranges, including a main range with sections for rifle and pistol shooting, an indoor range, two ranges for classrooms for education and shooting bays for any caliber, a trap range and a 3-D archery range with a trail walk that features life-size targets.

"Friendly and helpful ... great facility!" writes a reviewer on Facebook. "Come on ladies! Let's get to shooting. I am new to pistols and found this club helpful."

2. Emerald Empire Gun Club: Located in Springfield, this shooting and training facility includes five firing ranges, an archery venue and a meeting center. A public shooting range is open to the public with range safety officers and has 36 covered firing positions with targets for pistol and rifle shooting.

"This is a great gun club," writes a reviewer on Yelp. "Really safety-conscious, friendly, down-to-earth people here. The property is absolutely beautiful, and in addition to rifle, shotgun, and all-purpose shooting ranges, you'll find an archery range and private trout stream for members. Can't recommend a better place for a relaxing day at the range. There are also lots of opportunities for competition and for kids here. Great for shooters of all skill levels."

3. The Rainier Rod and Gun Club: Located in Rainier, this facility includes a 25-yard pistol range, a 100-yard rifle range, and a trap and sporting clay range. The club holds trap shoots at least twice a month. Hunter safety classes are held in the clubhouse/classroom.

"I'm a member. It's really not that bad of a club," according to a reviewer at Northwest Firearms. "It's primarily a skeet club that has multiple shoots a week and some evening shoots." 

4. The Place to Shoot: This indoor range located in Portland has a main range with 21 lanes and a tactical training range. The facility offers firearm safety from professionals, as well as practice for competition. They also teach beginners how to shoot.

"Nice people; convenient range," writes a reviewer on Yellow Pages. "You get a lot more shooting in with constant live fire. Allows .22 rifles, carbines. Allows oddball pistols as long as they are legal handguns. Nicest people in the business."

5. The Baron's Den & Shooting Range: This full-service retail gun shop and indoor shooting range located in Eugene, promotes safety and legal use of firearms for sporting or personal defense. It has a large selection of firearms for purchase or rent.

"They have the only public indoor shooting range which is cool," writes a reviewer on TripAdvisor. "And they have a Tommy gun to lend just for the hilarious fun of it. If you like guns you should try this."

6. Tritac Shooting Solutions: Located in Salem, this shooting range is open to the public. The shop offers guns and rifles. Handgun safety classes are also available. Membership benefits include free, unlimited range time.

"My daughter and I came in today to check it out and we were VERY impressed with how they treated two women,” writes a reviewer on Facebook. "No one in there was condescending and all of them were very helpful. Well done, Tritac! We are excited to be patrons."
