Hmmmm... Within 2 hours? Your best best within that drive time will probably be farmers around Rio Vista if you can get permission to shoot, but they usually have enough shooters to help them, but never hurts to politely ask.

I've gone varmint shooting way up North; shooters/hunters paradise. If you ever just want to jump in a car and drive around to BLM lands, let me know.

Actually, come to think of it, there are a lot of BLM and farm land within 2 hours of Contra Costa... Sorry about that.
