Interesting, went to go shoot at the rifle range at Angeles Shooting Range only to find that it's closed for SWAT practice every other thursday starting around 1pm.

So can you watch? What kind of drills / practice were they doing?

I stopped by and saw it too. Sorry, I didn't take any pictures of a bunch of old fat guys wearing camo. Yea, that's what it looked like to me. I did note that they were all driving unmarked sedans with Ca exempt plates.

I doubt those guys were Delta platoon then. Those dudes are in great shape.
They do quite a bit of training with Scott Reitz up in the Eagles Nest (past the skeet range).

I was there Thursday as well and they certainly didn't strike me as old fat guys.

I was only there to buy some bullets. I ran up to the range to get a few soft drinks and I thought I saw several grey haired guys in camo on the line. Was I wrong or were they instructors?

I've found that most outdoor ranges close once a week for LE to train. It really bugs me because it seems they get special treatment, but then again it's a private business and it's their rules.

I just end up going to an indoor range when that happens that sells me tons of 10mm for cheap.. :D

I thought LAPD had their own range at Angeles they trained at.....
