Default Where is your local free shooting range?

Was in Colfax till it was shut down due to lack of proactive maintance and responsible shooters.

Which is what will happen to any spot thats advertised on the internet.

I make it a point to hold any and all shooting spots close to the vest, dont want them getting shut down.

The Bullet Button can't be loosened up, only the Prince 50. But you can add something to the BB to make it act as a regular release, that'll work fine in a free state.

I live a tad above Colfax, miss that little BLM spot, but the trash (even with a lot of residents doing cleanups), then the forest fire did it in...and I even think there was more to it as well (there are a few homes nearby). Anybody in this area find a replacement? The National Forest is but 20 miles up the road, but the Colfax spot was literally 5 minutes away

I live in Sac and love to drive to the free open range in Carson City near the dump. Afterwards, I just go get some mad BBQ at Red's 395 or a free room at Boomtown.

Anyone else in the area want to join me, hit me up in a PM.

There is a free range just outside of Beal AFB. Been there a couple of times. It's ok. I think the county maintains it.

Can you post or PM me the direction and location of the range? I will be coming from North Sacramento area. If you know any other free shooting sites that you would recommend, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!

I've got my blm map but I haven't scouted anything out yet. Most of the blm is at least an hour away. Is it safe to assume that all the blm spots are closed for fire season? If so I will just have to drive alittle further out to the desert. Most of the places I was considering are backed up right on the edges of Cleveland NF.

Well, I'll play. Within the next couple of weeks I'll be able to say it's in my backyard or, maybe from inside my garage, off my front porch. I guess I'm not exacly sure yet. But, it'll be within walking distance of my reloading set up.

Would you provide directions to this range. I live in Rio Linda and have been taking some classes and need a place to practice. I have heard of this range, but don't know how to get there (obviously). Thanks

Default LOCAL SHOOTING RANGE

Closest free one is Cow Mountain outside Ukiah. BLM and it is the most disgusting mess I have ever seen . Next time I'm there I'll take pix. It is a shame.

It has gongs at 200 300 and 400 yds so it is great to practice long shots.

Every now and then some one makes an effort to clean it, but not enough.

I would love to find someplace near the Bay Area,
(I'm in the Hayward / Castro Valley area).
If anybody could recommend something that would be much appreciated.

If Cow Mountain has gotten that bad, perhaps a clean up thread should be started and a crew organized. Since it is a dedicated area for shooting I am more than certain that the BLM field office would support an effort and maybe even close it for a day or two for a decent sized effort in terms of people power.

ETA... Pine Flat Rd. is a lot closer to Petaluma than Cow Mountain. I was up there with some other CGNers this past weekend doing some clean up. See the thread on Pine Flat Rd. for more info. We need to get some serious effort going up there.

It almost pains me to see you guys talk about how far you have to drive , or how secret you have to keep a place, to find free shooting. I remember when I lived back home in Tulare, we pretty much drove for 10 minutes in any direction and we were good to shoot. It was literally 8-9 minutes to get to a friend's farmland or 11-12 minutes to get to some canal bank where we could shoot all day and never see another person.

Man it was good living back there.

I'm going to be finishing up school at UC Davis this coming fall, could someone point me out to the "levy" or recommend a place that I could shoot and maybe do a little hiking with the dog. Anything within an hour would be nice. Thanks, also wondering how many fellow calgunners are in the Davis area?
