    what do ya'll think will become of the shooting pasttime? it's becoming harder and harder to find anywhere to shoot, and a lot of ranges are closing due to conflicts with expansion. How long before the only thing available is a 25 yard pistol range?

    Yeah I was reading my latest issue of America's 1st Freedom, and in it an NRA spoksman was talking about how hard its becoming to find a decient range, because people are fighting against their expansion and existance. Sounds like Kalifornia is rubbing off on the rest of the nation.

    It's always been hard here.. luckily we've got a couple of options still.. one is literally a little dirt spot in the boonies, and the other is a fairly nice range on a state wildlife management area.

    No indoor ranges that are of any account that I know of..

    we've got a couple indoors here, they arent public though. you've got to be a member at their club to shoot there. i think its like $125/yr. they are up on hwy 58



    new idea for targets.....maniquines from the mall. you know some of the large dept stores have all kinds of broken ones that they throw away

    Damn california. haha. I have a range 45 minutes away (clay pigeons, E-trap, 15-25yd pistol and rimfire, 50-100yd can range, 100yd and 50yd rifle range), an indoor pisol about 30 mintues away. an outdoor pistol and rimfire range 15 minutes away. and a full on sporting clay range 1hr away.

    So i guess im in a good area.

    Yeah, even though Kaliforniastan has shitty gun regs we do have some good ranges. I have an out door range with pistol, rifle (up to 100yrds), and trap shooting about 15mins away. Another similar out door range about 30mins away. Furthermore, I have an indoor range 15mins away and another one 20 mins away.

    There are 17 ranges within 50miles listed when I search google. So I assume there's close to 25 with the ones that aren't listed:cool:

    Ain't that some shit.. never knew. Screw joining some "club" though.. I swear, one of these days I'll have the means to open up my own range/gun store.

    And the mannequins are a good idea.. do you know anybody that works at the department stores?

    Lucky here to have found Palo Alto that has a large range about 40mins away. It's got a 50 yard pistol, 50/100 yard rifle range, and a 600 yard range with firing lines at 200,300,500,600 yards.

    There is also a couple indoor ranges here. Both are good except one doesn't have any ventilation so I won't be going back to that one.

    ive got a few indoor ranges, 1 private range with a 25yrd, 100yrd, and a 300yrd and trap shooting, and a private range with sporting clays, and a few public parks/ranges with 100yrd and 25yrd ranges.
    there is a 1000yrd(i think) range/compound a few hours south, you can even buy animals to hunt :noes:
