People who are shooting in the Sacramento Region (maybe a 25 mile radius) on a given day and who want company, please post your shoots here. Please do not start individual threads, it gets too crazy.

People who want to know who's shooting, subscribe to this thread and you'll see what's going on in the area in the current time frame.

Please say where you are shooting, what you are shooting and when.

I will keep it contingent, more likely yes, as weather forecasts change every 12 hours. I can deal with light rain. Does your spot have a good flat area to put up a 10'x10' canopy if it rains, or is that even a good idea?

I'll keep you posted. I really want to go Sunday!

So what happens if it's really wet out there? Is the spot still easily accessible? I still plan to come out, but do we have an alternative destination to shooting just in case? What do you think?

I've got a dodge ram, it can handle some off road, but it is a subpar choice to something more balanced like a light SUV in these conditions. I don't mind taking it out dirt roads in the rain, as long as the paths are cliffs on the other side.

Thanks for a great time today at Foresthill with Lazyme. Its really great to meet folks that enjoy the same fun with the same sense of safety. As stated, weather was absolutely perfect- no wind, maybe a total of 40 drizzle drops on the windshield, and no other people. Can't wait for the next shoot!

I agree, there is a mess out there that neess picking up. If someone else has a truck or even a tow trailer, we could clean the place up really nice.

I worked Wed, Today, but now I get tomorrow off (well I have about two hours of stuff to do in the morning). Anyways, I am thinking I will go shooting! I know it's last minute, but if anyone wants to join me, I will be out at the Dillman Range in Lincoln at about lunch (Friday, December 28). I've never actually been there, but it seems like an interesting day to go out. Weather says cloudy, I think it may be foggy, but that's the fun of it. Planning to do some long range shooting with a bolt action, finish off breaking in a pistol, maybe trying out my first AR build (not gonna use too many rounds because you can't get them right now for a reasonable price).

If the weather sticks to the forecast, I'll probably be heading out to Sac Valley around noon Saturday December 29 to chronograph some new test loads on the public range.

If your going to introduce someone to shooting you should keep on driving for a few min and go right past Cordova.

Sac Valley Shooting Center is the best shooting facility West of the Mississippi (I read it on the Internet so it must be true). Seriously the place is impressive.

Ive met over a hundred people on this forum without incident. It's your responsibility to vet a stranger and determine for yourself if the situation safe, just like selling a car or even walking alone at night. Bad guys know people that go to gun ranges have guns. Why do they not hideout behind peoples cars?

I've met a lot of people on this forum too, and some long term friends and shooting buddies. Obviously, you want to meet them in a public place, like a large range. I wouldn't go to a BLM shoot alone, even with one or two friends, unless there were people there I already knew.

As Loopwell said, it's your responsibility to vet strangers and keep yourself safe. I actually think commercial gun ranges are the safest place on earth. Who wants to mess around when there are 100 heavily armed people standing there?

Hello all, new Calguns member here. I came up to the Sacramento area a few years ago from Rosamond. In southern Kern county we could basically walk to the end of our block and into the desert and target shoot. I assume that in Sac county we are prohibited from shooting in county unincorporated lands. So, short of driving up to the Forest lands, is there any places were my kids and I can shoot in an outdoor public range that's close by ?

If anyone wants to go shooting tomorrow (Wed), I got the day off work on short notice so I will be heading to Sac Valley to shoot my new Remington 700 LTR for the second time. I'm planning on spending some time on the 100yd public range to compete the ARFCOM "1 MOA All Day" challenge, then head to the 300yd range to practice some more. If anyone wants to join, just PM me. I will be bringing some equipment for long range shooting (barometer/thermometer/altimeter, IR thermometer, etc) so if you want to get some data with those for your load/rifle I would be happy to help. If anyone wants to bring a chronograph, we could cool down/heat up our rounds and plot the muzzle velocity variation as ammo temperature changes (I've been meaning to get a chrono but haven't got around to it, so if someone could bring one that would be AWESOME and I would pay your range fee).

I promise I'm not just trying to mooch on your chrono... if all you have is a rifle, come on out and do the 1 MOA All Day challenge with me! I'll bring extra targets.

Alternatively, if no one can get out there on such short notice, let's plan a trip to Sac Valley on a weekend soon (weekend after next if it's raining this Sat/Sun). If any members of Sac Valley want to shoot on the longer, member-only ranges, give me a heads up and I will buy a membership (been thinking about doin it for awhile now anyways).

It'll probably around late morning and early noon hours. Please come join if you can --- I'd love to meet some of the Calgunners in the Sac area.

PS I'll also bring my AR to run a few rounds through that.

You'd really be better off taking a class in handgun safety and beginner shooting, than practicing for a week with your first handgun and grooving in all kinds of bad habits.

By the time you pay seven range fees and however much ammo, you could easily pay for a basic handgun class and learn to do it correctly.

If you go to SGC, they have excellent courses regularly scheduled or you can look in the Calguns Sacramento Forum for recommendations on private instructors.

Understand that while your friends and acquaintances may be more than willing to 'teach' you, its not nearly as good as getting professional instruction.
