So, this is a general question: Are Gun/Shooting clubs recommended? Does anyone belong to one/some?
And the next question, and the reason I'm posting this in the N. CA forum, is if anyone has any recommendations for a club in the Sacramento and surrounding areas?
I found 2 possible clubs, 1 under the IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Assoc.) and the other under the USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Assoc.)
The reason I'm interested in joining a shooting club is to find an outlet to where I can shoot outside of the ordinary shooting range; seeking variety in the way I practice shooting.
I know, I could just join one and see how it goes, but I want to make sure I'm getting in something for the right reasons; that it's not full-on competition only, but that they offer members training opportunities and such.
I appreciate any info anyone can provide... and yes, I will be contacting the clubs directly, but was looking for some other insight as well.
Thank in advance.
