Default Ranges with Manual Traps in the Bay Area?

Started getting into Trap Shooting and I really like it! Is Lost Altos the only range in the Bay Area with manual traps? Meaning the kind where you bring in your own clays and have a friend launch them off the thing-ma-jig. I'm just starting out so I feel its more economical to buy a box of 90 from wally for $10 than to pay $9 for a round of 25 of electric traps.

Coyote Valley has a manual mode for their trap stations (and their clay stations too). Don't recall what price was to do so though.

From their website, Los Altos has manual trap throwers. I've never been there myself.

Agree with onegtalon. The rest in the area are voice activated 25 round-ers. Coyote valley I think is only sporting clays and skeet (going again today, so I'll double check for you on site if my statement was wrong)

Source: been to los altos, Livermore, sunnyvale, and coyote valley.

Nope; Coyote Valley has trap, which can be run in manual mode (six second delay).

I could be wrong, but I think the op wants to bring his own clays and not pay range fees. Remember, the cost per round is the cost of the clays and use of the thrower and range.

You can bring your own biodegradeable clays and shoot using the manual trap throwers at Los Altos. Theres about 7 stations . Some are slow medium and fast. Its just ahead of the electric thrower area.... Its included in the range access (rifle/pistol lanes, and manual trap) when you pay to enter.

There is a shot requirement...I think you can only use #4's and up. NO #2

The manual trap at Los Altos are foot pedal throwers. Your partner can do the throwing or you can operate it alone. Just kick n shoot

Yep... agree with los altos. They just increased entry fee to $16, but after that it's your own clays and own ammo
