BB gun shooting indoors
 
I'm the Norwalk/Downey 562 area of Los Angeles, and looking for an indoor location to take my daughter to shoot her pink Daisy BB gun. Any ideas?

Your garage?

Call Insight Shooting Range (~605/91) if a regular gun range is not going to be too intimidating.

Thanks Garv, but I had already called Insight, they said no.

I made a pellet trap and shoot in my garage. If I didn't have a garage I wouldn't hesitate to do it in my house.

You can loosely hang a heavy blanket for a backstop, shooting into a cardboard box stuffed with paper and targets on the bottom. That works in the backyard or in the garage. You could even do it indoors, for that matter.

Do not shoot at home.
You might have to go to Angeles and shoot the steel on the rimfire range.
Call them.

I have used a pellet trap made of 2x4 stuffed with duct seal. It can be very safe if you take proper precautions.

airsoft pistols with plastic bb's at 350 fps work great...I shoot indoors and in the backyard into a large box filled with Styrofoam packing pieces...if need, hang a used bed spread or something of the nature behind also.

Anyone every thought about opening a range for airsoft and BB/Pellet? Would it work as a business? Anybody have thoughts? How about a archery added to that?

I don’t see this as ever taking off. The problem is that most in the firearms community view airguns as toys and unworthy of their attention. Also, you’d have to consider the cost of insurance.

A very long time ago, a little shop in Bellflower known as AirVenture had a range such as you describe. They had to shut it down because they couldn’t afford to pay the insurance.
