Deer hunting has peeked my interest and looking for a rifle/handgun range to get some practice on both.

Here is a list (in order of my preference) of the outdoor ranges in the area, that support handgun, rifle, & shotgun. Depending on your location, Sac Valley might be a bit of a drive, but the best range.

Sacramento Valley Shooting Center is South East of Sacramento, in Ione.
Www.sacvalley.org

Lincoln Rifle Club is North of Sacramento, in Lincoln
Www.lincolnrifleclub.com

Cordova Shooting Center, in Rancho Cordova
Www.cordovashootingcenter.com

Sean here in Sacramento.
I hunt chukar, quail and waterfowl. Going after chukars in a couple of days in Nevada. Very excited. Let me know if you are interested in going and we can team up. If you have never hunted chukars, then you should defenately get in touch with me.

Hi, everyone. I've posted in the "new guys" forum before, but this is more of a local check-in.

I'm new to the area, semi-new to guns, and wouldn't mind getting into competitive shooting, if I can afford it. I know this is an expensive game to play, but getting those groupings smaller and smaller is just so much fun...

At any rate, I work with the Air Force on Beale, and am pretty handy with computers. I'm really bad with words, so I apologize in advance if I say things that don't make any sense.

I only have handguns, at the moment, but I'm saving up to get something for longer distances. Specifically, an R700 in .308. If anyone has a lead on one I could get for fairly cheap, I'd appreciate it!

Other than that, I hope to meet some of you in person sometime. I don't know many people yet, so it's always good to get out and do something.

Agree to a point.

Sac Valley is awesome, especially if you get off the public range and on to the action or 600m steel ranges.

Trivia - I remember as kid going to the old Folsom range across from where Gekikan Sake is now in the early '70's with my Dad and Uncle; that is the range that shut down and moved to Ione(Sac Valley)

Shot a lot at Lincoln; that is a nice range

I would deal with the schedule and go to El Dorado Rod and Gun before going to Cordova(although I have been to Cordova numerous times over the years). El Dorado is a private club that allows the public, but not all ranges are open like Sac Valley or Lincoln; you have to check the schedule to see what range is open the day you are thinking of going.

Howdy, Rancho Cordova checking in. Newbie to calguns forum. Not sure what "talents" i have to offer but I do have time to offer. I love that y'all are so active. For those on twitter I'm @ZephyrK9 on twitter just mention calguns and I'll follow back. I usually shoot at Cordova due to the convenience and b/c I'm usually solo when I go. Have a great day. Thank you to all Vets for your service USAF Brat here.

Greetings from Placerville. Looking into a 308 rem/savage/ruger package for a little distance shooting. Might go to Big Horn this AM to see what they have laying around. Wouldn't mind a Mark III to accompany my 10/22 for ground squirrel eradication either. Maybe those of us up the 50 corridor could meet at Bricks or another local for beers and greets.

Hey all,

Check in from Roseville. I hope to have my CCW in a month or so as I've already had my interview and livescan with PCSO. I want to be ready for whatever comes my way.

Greetings and salutations from Sacramento. I'm new to this forum. Just recently purchased an M&M M10 AK style rifle. I am pretty new to the AK platform so your wisdom is appreciated. Also currently doing a couple of AR builds. I am prior military (Navy). I look forward to receiving knowledge and sharing knowledge with you all.

Lurked for a long time, just registered a few days ago. Been shooting since age 5 (still have my Remington 514 single shot .22!). I'm a longtime member of the Folsom Shooting Club (AKA Sac Valley Shooting Center in Ione). I shoot mostly defensive handgun, carbine, skeet and long range - all recreational (v. comp). I upland bird hunt when I can, and ride street and dirt bikes, and a monster Can Am 1000 ATV for fun. I negotiate/mediate for a living.

I'm Jinx and I've lived in South Sacramento most of my life. Always enjoyed the rare times I'd shoot with friends until I had to learn to shoot for work. Now I'm hopelessly hooked. I work in private security and while I don't have a lot of experience behind the sights I do have twenty years of experience building custom PCs. I would like to meet and shoot with as many of you as possible. Currently seeking to shoot some different types of 9mm and .45 to decide what to buy next. My only gun is an H&K USP in .40 that I bought to get into armed security. When finances allow I'll pick some more up as well!

Metro Sac. Been reading here for years but never bothered to join until recently and get back to shooting before my wonderful state takes it away from us.

Hello all,

Have been browsing for some time and decided to register so figured I would post in the roll call. I just wanted to say thank you to all who contribute to this forum as there is a wealth of knowledge and I look forward to moving past the tip of the iceberg.

Currently own a Springfield XD40 and have been looking at information regarding building my own AK and the issues that concern CCW liscenses in Sacramento.

Thumbs up

Greetings from the OV/Fair Oaks/Folsom part of Sac. County. I've been reading the forums for a while and finally decided to register. This site provides great info to gun owners and those that want to be gun owners in this state.

I'll probably have some questions here and there as I'm a gun newbie.

Hello from Citrus Heights. Shoot at both Cordova and The Gun Range. Hand guns mostly, occasionally my shot gun. Daughter and grandkids live a 3 Iron away from the Cordova range so I visit them Saturday and shoot Saturday afternoons. I load for 9mm, 40 and 45 cal.

Howdy to all from Elk Grove, I am an avid shooter (at SAC Valley), rifles mainly but I do shoot my 9mm and 45 ACP every once in a while. I started reloading .223 last May and now I load .9mm, 22.250, and .308 as well. This site has it all and its nice to see so many people always commenting and giving good sound advice and would some day like to be one of those people. Information is power.
