Sac C3 Monthly Shoot (Nov/Dec); December 8th - DONE
Saturday 12/08 at Sacramento Valley Shooting Center – Rifle Ranges @ 10:00 a.m. (Range closes at 6 p.m).

Please wear your Calguns gear, we are here to represent!

Check this place out - lots for the public to do and even more if you are a member!

WHAT: The shoot will follow the informal order of "Meet, Shoot, Eat". The "eat" portion this event will have to be snacks that you bring to keep your tummy calm until you get a real meal in you. I will be here all day trying to get as much range time in as possible.

We’ll have some handouts, some stickers and other goodies for sale.

HOW MUCH: Rifle and Pistol range fees, all day, $ 3 for members, $14 for non-members

WHERE: Please, sign in with the C3s first. We’ll be at the picnic tables between the office and the pond. This is where you will check in and receive a name tag so we can all identify each other and put a face to the screen name.

Once you’ve checked in with us, for handguns or for rifles, go to the Range Office and sign in. Fees are for the full day, you’ll be given a wristband. There are no reservations. There is usually good availability at 9 am sharp.

When you get on the range, look for the CalGuns Banner or one of the C3s in the bright orange hats and Calguns shirt. We will try making ourselves as visible as possible. If you see a Calguns logo stop an say hi, we all seem to be friendly people!

WHAT IF IT RAINS? : Generally, rain or shine. But subscribe to this thread and check it before you load your guns and go.

Sacramento Valley Shooting Center
15501 Meiss Road,
Sloughhouse, CA 95683 Phone; 916-354-96683
NOTE: The Center is located approximately 15 miles Southeast of the city of Sacramento. Do not use car based GPS or Internet/electronic maps for directions to the range as they often have you entering from Dillard Road. Meiss from Dillard is an unpaved, nearly impassible rock road. Use Ione Road to approach Meiss Road.

No formal competitions this time, just fun. Tell us what kind of competitions you’d like and we’ll try to make it happen in future.

Guns Allowed At range:
Handguns - common handgun calibers up to 50 yards!
Rifles - up to 300 yards for the public!
Shotguns – HD shotguns are allowed in the area in front of the Range Office. Coordinate with the staff and they will give you an older target stand to destroy. (Trap/Skeet/Clays are not at this range.)

Safety: There are cease fires every 15 minutes. Eye and hearing protection are mandatory for anyone on the range. Please be aware that all firearms on the public range MUST use an empty chamber indicator during cease fire periods. Bring your own or buy one at the office for a nominal fee.

Reminder: - When you're there, your actions represent the entire Calguns community. We should always take responsibility for our actions, and treat their facility with the utmost respect.

Hope to see you there!

What do you guys want to do? Outdoors? Private Range,Sac Valley?

gunace89 10-20-2012 4:39 PM

Im always down for outdoors, but we dont know what the weather will be like.

gunace89 10-21-2012 1:42 PM

I dont even know, atleast today seems like a normal October, dont even know about November lol

BonnieB 10-21-2012 2:38 PM

People are asking for a shoot in Lincoln, not sure if the Lincoln Rifle Club or Coon Creek is better. I haven't been there but I'm good with going to the Lincoln area.

Anything with covered shooting will work for me.

savannah 10-21-2012 3:00 PM

I think you will find that many will be traveling home from visiting family that weekend. December 1st weekend may be more attended. Just an observation. Carry on!!!

BonnieB 10-21-2012 3:03 PM

Savannah makes a good point. The weekend preceding Thanksgiving won't be much better.

Do the weekend of Dec 1 for November and the weekend of Dec 29 for Dec? Or maybe New Year's Day, if anything is open?

savannah 10-21-2012 3:08 PM

Ooooooooh. New Years blow things up!!!!!!!!!!

gunace89 10-21-2012 4:57 PM

Yeah, the original date might be cutting it close to Thanksgiving for some. Any of the other dates id think would work. Id be down for the Lincoln Rifle Club. Coon Creek is a Trap/Skeet/Sporting Clays range that I frequent often. If thats what people want to do, its a good place, I know the owner.

savannah 10-21-2012 5:23 PM

I am a member at Dillman Range (aka Lincoln Rifle Range). I would also be down for Coon Creek in Lincoln.

10xhobby 10-22-2012 9:17 PM

Hey Tim, please add me to the list. I will be bringing mostly handguns 22 32 45. sounds like fun, maybe we can shoot the rimfire match. thanks Steve

Lazyme 10-22-2012 9:29 PM

9mmepiphany 10-22-2012 11:38 PM

Well, I guess I won't have to go and zero the .22lr before the weekend ;)

I'll bring out my S&W M&P9 if anyone would like to see what one feels like with the Apex Tactical trigger parts

akoba 10-22-2012 11:41 PM

Oct. 27th is my daughter's birthday. We already have plan for the weekend. Thank you for the invite. I'll try next time.

Would any one like to try out different handguns ? I have a few that I can bring out. Let me know.

oldsw20 10-23-2012 1:03 PM

Sorry I can't make it to this one. Going to the build party that day. But there is always a next time. Thanks.

ShooterDK 10-23-2012 1:20 PM


Slight clarification on the public rifle range. To shoot on the 300 yard range you have to "qualify" and it's quite simple...

Basically you shoot on the 100 yard range and if your on paper with reasonable groupings you show target to the office and they issue a 'qual" card saying you can shoot on the 300 side.


BonnieB 10-23-2012 6:59 PM

THE "NOVEMBER" MONTHLY SHOOT WILL BE ON SATURDAY DECEMBER 1, to accomodate people's Thanksgiving holiday travel situation.

timmytoast916 10-24-2012 11:39 AM

Won't be able to make it. I'll Washington for a work safety training meeting. Next month though I'll be there!

hammerhands32 10-24-2012 12:56 PM

Lazyme 10-24-2012 3:33 PM

Lazyme 10-25-2012 6:03 AM

10xhobby 10-25-2012 8:17 AM

do you think 3 1/2 hours will be enough time ??????? haha

Lazyme 10-25-2012 8:32 AM

I will be there @ 8:00...and Bonnie is going back after lunch if you need a more of a fix. :D

Also...we got some CGN goodies to give away...shhhh...dont tell nobody.

ElDub1950 10-25-2012 10:36 AM

Hadn't heard of Coon Creek, so I looked it up. It appears to only for trap and skeet .. is that correct? That might eliminate a lot of people if it is.

I'll vote for Lincoln .. always nice to visit a new range.

10xhobby 10-25-2012 11:08 AM

well then maybe I will bring some rifles for after lunch

Lazyme 10-26-2012 3:47 PM

I am bringing my ruger 10/22 setup for Appleseed, Ruger SR22 pistol & Kimber 1911 with .22 conversion. + a few center fire toys.

I have about 10 different types of ammo to try and plenty of targets to get the job done.

Hows that .22 conversion work on your Kimber?
Been wondering about that and the benefits.


Vulture 10-26-2012 7:36 PM

Should be there at roughly 9. Wasn't sure I could make it till tonight.

I love it. So far the only thing that runs without a problem is the CCI MiniMag but I have a few other brands to try tomorrow.

The sights are basic but they work for me. Definitely not the Meprolight sights that came on the .45 slide.

So far it has been my toy to play with when I go camping and I can clear a row of cans off a log pretty fast. I'll know more about "target" shooting tomorrow.
