Private land and a couple of clubs. There is no truly public range anywhere in Sonoma County.

Sebastopol Pistol &Rifle Club has a small indoor facility, not aware of public hours there. I've shot rimfire there a couple of times as a guest of a member.

Valley of the Moon Trap Club www.vomtc.org, has public trap shooting on Wednesdays and Sundays, 5 stand sporting clays on Thursday and Sunday and a small rifle and pistol range for members and guests only Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Default Minimum Age at Range

I think most ranges are okay with a .22 rifle and a 10 year old with proper supervision. Call first to confirm. I know Metcalf Sports Park allows it and that is a great outdoor range. Cool people (customers and ROs). Casual atmosphere. Owned by Santa Clara County.

Martinez Gun Club (in Martinez)
http://www.martinezgunclub.net/

Shotguns only. Trap, skeet, clay pigeon, etc. They limit to 24 inch barrels and longer. So my 20 inch Persuader is out, sucks. So I haven't been but have heard good things.

Default Good range for handguns

As a pistol instructor, I like the San Leandro Rifle and Pistol range. Indoors, you have your own lane. So you don't have to wait on the 100 yard guys to return from hanging targets. I like taping my own 8.5 x 11 pieces of paper, with different size circles on top of their full size targets. You need to know were every bullet is going, to improve. You can't fix something, if you can't see the problem. In my opinion !!!

This is going to sound a bit specific, but is there a range in the Bay Area similar to Angeles Shooting Range, or Oak Tree Gun Club in Los Angeles?

What I mean is... is there a range that has good steel targets at a variety of distances? Angeles and Oak Tree both had great steel target handgun ranges, and Angeles had steel rifle targets from 100 all the way to 500 yards. In addition, Angeles had no beef with my firing from kneeling, sitting, and even prone.

Am in the North Bay.

Laguna Seca Rifle and Pistol Range; http://www.co.monterey.ca.us/parks/l...eca_rifle.html

You can put up target in your lane up to 200 yd. They have steel targets at 300 yd, 400 and 500 yds; those are fun!

Are there any indoor ranges in the East Bay Area? Tracy Rifle and Pistol is the closest one I'm aware of, which is about an hour drive from me (I'm in Concord). Curious if there's a closer place to shoot indoors.

As well as Targetmasters. Guns Fishing and Other Stuff is opening up a new store in Dublin this weekend which will have an indoor range, but I guess it will be several more weeks before the range is open.

At the San Leandro range it says $0.50 fee for "range change" what does that mean? Does it mean target retrieval? Indoor vs Outdoor station change? Any station change? Changing preset target distance but not for target retrieval?

I've only shot outdoors there. They use different target types for the 100yd rifle range vs the up to 50yd pistol caliber range, I suspect that's the cost of a new target.

The Chabot Gun Club's range at Lake Chabot has closed as of 20 SEP 16 due to the *******s at the East Bay Regional Park District.

Just thought I'd provide the full name of the range in case the OP wasn't familiar with the "Chabot" referred to in the previous message.

Don't forget Coyote Valley Sporting Clays at 1000 San Bruno Ave. in Morgan Hill! They have trap, skeet, sporting clays, 5 stand, hunter safety classes, a cowboy action club, and defensive shooting instructors who offer classes on the private range.

They have currently reopened up the range for 22lr at this time. Not the ideal situation but it's a start. They only way to get these ranges back up is to support them or join their membership.

I believe they are still looking for a contractor to meet their requirements for the improvements.

Thanks!

Since they're getting rare too, we probably also need a SFBA local gun stores/shops list or map....

Tracy Rifle and Pistol is closed.

In Vacaville there is a newish (mostly to me) indoor range called ammunition supply point.

http://www.aspsolano.com/

Sell black rifle acc and had a decent range setup. Easy to get to off the 80 from either East Bay or Sac.

Looks like ASP Solano took over centermassrange.

Map updated. TRP has already been renamed to Elite Armory

Great thanks, I've been looking for an outdoor range like this one. Seems similar to Piru out in Santa Clarita.

A lot of these ranges aren't open anymore.

Closed: Vacaville - Center Mass Shooting Range
Closed: South San Francisco - Jackson Arms Shooting Range & Gun Shop
Closed: San Rafael - Bullseye Shooting Range & Gun Store
Closed: Castro Valley - Chabot Gun Club
Closed: San Francsico - Pacific Rod & Gun Club
Closed: Livermore/Pleasanton - Livermore/Pleasanton Rod & Gun Club

Would it be possible to get the lead post edited with up-to-date information? Barring that, might this thread get un-stickied?

When did livermore close? Looks up: https://lprg.org/
Do you know something we don't know?

Also, the other updates I believe have been made on the map already:
http://ugimports.com/rangemaps

I don't think the 1st post is being kept up to date, but I do track other updates if needed for the map.
