Where to take a large group for first shoot in bay area?????
My cousin is looking for a place to take 10-12 people for their first shoot. Can somone give me info on a range where somone could rent out a range for a few hours in the bay area? Somwhere he could use multiple stalls at one time and instruct. So far he's running into situations where he will only have one stall at a time and that will supposedly take forever to get 10-12 people to shoot a dozen or so guns. Any advice?

even if you find a range, you must have 1 instructor/babysitter per lane.
You shouldn't leave first timers alone.

Reed's can give a group rate and staff instruction for groups about that size. You'll get about a 20 minute briefing in the classroom in regards to safety and handling, and then time on the range with one of the two bays (10 lanes) all to yourself.

Otherwise, just make sure that you have an experienced shooter for each lane that you rent, because at no time should a first-time shooter be unsupervised.

just post which range and what day you decide to take 12 newbies all at the same time ... so I know when to go to a different range :p

Though I have never been, friends of mine that go in groups and encourage newbies have had good outings at Chabot.

Manteca sportsmen's is generally empty during the weekdays.

It is not clear if you are planning to shoot shotgun, rifle or pistol. Consider Livermore gun range.

Laguna Seca was raffling private range time when they opened up the 500 yd gong back in sept. You might contact the new range master there about renting private range time if its possible.
