I am planning to buy my first shotgun soon and was wondering if there were any ranges in OC that allow shotguns? The range I go to(On Target in Laguna Niguel) does not. I figured if I buy a shotgun, I better get use to it with lots of practice http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif..

I'm surprised On-Target doesn't allow shotguns, I've seen them in there before though it's been a while.

almost every range ive been to allows shotguns as long as you dont use slugs.

You know, come to think about it, I remember hearing shotguns at the range. I called On-Target to inquire, maybe I'll just ask the next time I go in... Maybe members get a special perk http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

hflores, thanks for the link to insight. That's cool that they have shotgun patterning Thursday nights.

On Target as well as most indoor ranges allow shotguns.

I've brought my shotgun to shoot at On Target before, but shooting at paper targets with a shotgun that blows a huge hole in your target gets pretty old quite fast.

Get a shotgun, if you get a defensive shotgun buy an extra long barrel 26" - 30" and use your shotgun at the clay range. Busting clays is much more fun than shooting paper.

I just went to Prado's last Friday for the first time. I tried shoot trap. At first I hated it because I wasn't hitting anything but when I started to hit... it felt GREAT.

We've not put the HD shotgun thing on hold as we are looking for trap/skeet guns.

Cool, thanks!! I didn't even know Prado existed!! I was looking at getting the Mossberg 500 18.5/28 deal @ Big5.

Thanks for all the responses!!
