View Full Version : Shooting in Piru

Went for the first time to the shooting range in Piru. I decided to try something new, and wasn't dissapointed! It's kind of out in the sticks, and you have to drive a ways on a rough dirt road, but I have a big truck so it was fun! Anyhow, the pistol part is small, but enough, and the rifle section is nice! Loooong rang, not sure how far, but longer than I can shoot. There were a few guys there with some 50 cals there bringing the thunder. I didn't bring my rifle because I didn't know how OLL friendly they would be, but I'll definetly bring it next time. The guy working there was super friendly, in fact, everyone that I talked to was super friendly! No RO's watching over your shoulder, no one correcting you for any stupid "range violations" or touching your weapons.

I sure wish I knew how to become a member of the "private club" so I could use those ranges farther up the road! Full on kill houses and competition courses! WOW! Makes me want to move out to the sticks so I can have my own!

Anyhow, two thumbs up to Piru, or the Wes something or another range, whatever its called!

Wes Thompson's Outdoor Lake Piru Shooting Range or something :cool:

I've gone there a couple times with my AR, they are OLL friendly but most of the guys there are shooting bolt actions. I am surprised you said everyone was so friendly, when I go there it seems like people keeps to themselves. They go there to shoot and that's all they do. That could be because I am 19 and probably look much younger.

I think the shortest range on the rifle area is 100 yards and the longest is 1,000.

The ranges farthere up are where the shoot the IDPA, SASS, Steel Challange, and other action pistol matches.

Look through the competition forum and you will see video of 3 gun matches held there or go to www.madtrigger.com

If you want to be in the "club" you have to shoot matches.
