I am located in the Pomona/Walnut area and am looking for an indoor range nearby that will allow centerfire rifles. Don't always have the time or the will to go to an outdoor range so stopping by an indoor(Even if only 50 yards) would be nice. Any ideas?

Isn't there an indoor range that allows 5.56 in the Brea area?

There is Evan's in Orange. Went there last night for the first time. Very friendly staff. The 25 yard range for centerfire rifles is available a few times per month. You should call for more details.

I bet most indoor ranges would let you shoot 5.56 with frangible ammo.

You could go to On Target, they allow my AR and AK's in there. But you have to get a rifle card from them for $20. Basically they make sure you not a complete idiot, which makes me wonder how some of the idiots I have seen in there got their card in the first place?

Anywise, nice guys at On Target and I'm in there all the time.

Iron sights in oceanside, bit of a drive, but great range and staff.

you have to clear your rifles with them 1st, so i assume they don't allow all...
last line of the range page...
"Shotguns and some rifle calibers may be handled on the Tactical Range with approval. Consult with the range masters prior to coming down to our range."

Also, if you look at their gunsmithing section, they refuse to work on communist weapons, so I guess AK's and SKS are the ones not allowed on the range.

Does anyone know how long the rifle class is for Ontarget shooting? What does it actually consist of?

WOW! :rolleyes:
I feel bad for you guys in SoCal, from what I've heard on here and seen when I've visited a lot of your ranges have really weird rules and overbearing staff. :(

Roughly 30-40 minutes. its mostly going over the safety rules and insurance liability issues. toward the end, you have to shoot 3 round at 15-20 yard and have some sort of group(5 inch i think). Impossible to fail kinda test.


Also the 20 dollat fee includes a one time free range time card.

I missed going there last night.. :(

Anyways, nice range but they only do rifle calibers a few times a month..

BUT, great place to do FTF transfers and they have a great gunsmith.. and they are nice.

When I called I was told Evans allows everything short of 50 BMG. I shot my AR there last night. The guy three lanes down from me was shooting an AK and the guy next to me was shooting an AR as well.

Four targets, a set of soft plugs, and range time from 6:30 to 9:30 cost me $28.00. Not a bad deal. I might go back on the next "rifle night" on the 31st.

Yes. I had an ammo can full of cheap PMC bronze. In fact, come to think of it, no one even checked my ammo - although common sense would dictate not to bring any steel core to an indoor range.

I've been to Evans it's alright. I've also heard of "rifle night" but have never attended. Is this tactical range a whole other area? I'm stoked to check it out!
