I know Livermore allows minors, but I don't know the details

Jackson Arms in South San Francisco allows minors 12 and up with an adult

I asked Reeds if I could bring my 9 year old daughter and they said yes. I think the rifle ranges allow young minors to. The Los Altos gun club allows kids but they must be by your side at all times.

I know up there is different than down here - but locally the indoor ranges mostly specify they are tall enough to shoot over the bench and not under it. At the outdoor range - at least Angeles - my 5 yo daughter at the time was allowed to shoot my leveraction with no problems or questions asked.

Just call and ask where you want to go. Easy enough.

I took my little brother shooting to Castro Valley Gun Club and was no issue also took him to the gun range off Davis in San leandro area. He was around 12 the first time I took him.

Haven't had any issues at any of the following:

Castro valley (pistol/rifle) outdoors
San Leandro (pistol/rifle) indoors or outdoors
Target Masters (pistol/rifle) - wouldn't recommend this for a group as the indoor lanes are tight
Livermore (pistol/rifle) outdoors

I wanted to take my friend's children shooting (both under 18). I have the parents' permission, but the parents will not be physically present. Do any ranges in the area allow minors to shoot handguns as long as they are in the presence of a >21 yr old gun owner?

NOPE! has to be immediate family member mom or dad present. Why not just bring the parent[s] along?

All Bay Area ranges have this rule, or just some?

Actually I may be wrong but there's still some limitation based on age for Target Masters (as shown on their website):
16- to 18-year-olds Must have a Minors Permission Slip completed by their legal guardian(s)
Under 16 Must be with Parent(s) or Legal guardian(s).

Question Form: #2. Are you under 21 years of age? If yes, you must shoot with a parent or legal guardian. as scene here: http://www.reedsindoorrange.com/rangerules.pdf

Persons under 18 must be escorted by an adult AND have their Release Form signed by a
Parent or Legal Guardian. Parent fills out all yellow fields with their own info, child's name only goes in the last paragraph under "LEGAL GUARDIAN'S CONSENT &ACKNOWLEDGEMENT"

Take them to the USI range in Concord.
There's kids there often, and I've never heard them interrogate anyone over whether or not they are the kid's parents.

I used to take my son and his friends shooting handguns when they were much younger at USI. Never a problem.
