Shooting ranges
« on: October 18, 2017, 09:19:33 AM »
Hi, I'm moving from SoCal to Oakland at the end of the month.  Are there any good shooting ranges in the area that you can recommend, particularly in-door ranges?  I'm looking for a range that will allow rifles and shotguns, in addition to handguns.

Most ranges I have been to in the past have closed, but I do live on the coast and you can shoot on some of the state forests for free.  Just clean up after yourself or we will lose that right also.

That's unfortunate.  With the terrible fires NorCal has been facing, I'm going to avoid outdoor shooting in any wooded areas.

If you ever come up to Ft bragg I will give you info on one off of the hwy that is in an old quarry and no danger of fires unless you bring flame throwers.

I think Chabot has a range.  Richmond is a good alternative.

Looks like Chabot closed last year.  Richmond it is.

Bummer. I loved Chabot.

Looks like the Richmond club is about a 30 minute drive from where I'll be living, which is doable since I usually go to the range on Sundays.  Is Richmond a private club?

I'd be interested in hearing about that one.  In Sonoma we're now pretty much limited to Circle S.

Thanks everyone.  I did some looking on the internet about all of the options mentioned and I'm going to try the range in San Leandro first.

Keep us posted. I'd love to hear some first hand experience of that range.

Vacaville has a indoor range. Hunting fishing and other stuff is the name of the store. Right of I-80 and Alamo.. Not sure what it's opened to though.  My gun range is the Montezuma hills. Haha
