I live in Redmond (home of Microsoft which is reason I moved from S. CA. to the rainy NW). I am a person with too many hobbies: Ham Radio (KE7ISF), golf, fly fishing, basketball and I also enjoy shotgun sporting clay shooting and general rifle and pistol target work. A benefit to living in WA is while still a whacky Left Coast (isn't the whole country becoming the left coast) state it is much better from a gun rights perspective. I currently don't own a handgun but we have a family membership at the local range http://www.wadesguns.com/
and shoot weekly. Trying to decide and budget. I am also a Venture Crew advisor http://www.scouting.org/venturing.aspx
and this year we will be working on getting our crew to marksman qualification in handgun and shotgun.
In real life I am an industry analyst for Gartner advising companies on AD strategies mainly focused on software quality and testing.
