What ranges in norcal allow rapidfiring? I know Jacksons used to, but my brother told me some idiot took a rifle and turned the roof to swiss cheese, resulting in no more rapidfiring :(

Are there any other ranges in NorCal that allows rapidfiring, including rifles? Preferably close to Oakland :D

I haven't been in a while but Los Altos Rod and Gun in the Santa Cruz mountains used to have a tin can 50yrd rang that allowed rapid fire. Not sure if they still do.

Find out where the local IPSC people play and get into that game. You're main problem will be cost of ammunition as it all dissappears rapidly down the barrel.

rapidfiring, in CA :eek: ??? if u find a place please let me know..... thats what we all need a .22lr build for, still contemplating tho..... is it really worth spending $700 for a penner caliber?? u could get a nice fluted supper accurate barrel for that.......

i thought rapid fire in cali is a NO NO, heck man WE ONLY GOT 10 ROUND MAGS!!!!! rapid fire?? u mean 2 seconds and $5 later????

+1 both allow rapid fire on the IPSC/USPSA ranges; actually folks'll snicker at you if you shoot too slow :p

Reed's Indoor Range will allow controlled pairs/draw from holster if you take their pistol class first.

Some of us have more than 10 round mags.

I'm interested to see if I can bump fire my .22 upper when it arrives, as it'd certainly be cheaper than bump firing .223 :43:.

At Jackson Arms, if you demonstrate over a period of time that you are a competent shooter, they'll allow you to "rapid-fire" with the understanding that if you damage it (anything) you'll pay for it.

Oh, cool. I'm actually still at college, and I heard they blocked rifle rapidfiring entirely. There's still hope then :D

Rapid fire only on large targets, meaning controlled rapid-fire. Any shots outside of the bowling pin or the 8-ring on a large target, and it's a no-no.

Double and triple-taps only on medium targets. No rapid-fire on small targets.

I think they lifted their requirement for a personal reference to join the club so Scotts Valley Sportsman Club is a good bet.

Midnight...in regards to your PM- the range I'm talking about on THIS thread is NFS land, BLM, and private property.
