Default Field Time Target and Training

I'm thinking about bringing some new shooters here, I've heard good reviews and haven't been to this place personally... How's the rental selection and what handguns/rifles do they carry? Thanks!

Rentals are pretty standard...Glocks, M&Ps, Kahr Arms, Revolvers.
You can rent ARs and shotguns also, if you rent their guns you have to use their ammo. I have a platinum membership there and buy their ammo anyway. Membership gets you free gun rentals and 15% off all ammo, and lane reservations or first in line as soon as you arrive.

general handguns, shotguns, rifles for rent. you can buy ammo there. no steel core or bi-metal ammunition allowed.

Field Time is a great range; the best one I have ever been to. Pretty good rental selection including AR style rifles and lots of handguns. Very nice staff which makes it ideal for beginners. No RO's yelling at everyone; if they have an issue (i.e. shooting too rapidly, etc.) they will politely talk to you. The range is spacious, well-lit, and well-ventilated.

This has become my range of choice.

Been wanting to check this place out too. Curious, but glad everyone seems to like it.

I attended their free reloading class one saturday last year and the owner/instructor is well versed, helpful and friendly.

I love their used guns selections too, but some are pricy...

Only been to two indoor ranges, Huntington beach one and field time in Stanton I believe. Field Time by far is superior to the one in HB, as far as spacious, cleanness, air quality (state of the art air filtration system) and by far the friendliest and most helpful staff readily available to help you. Hope that helps.

Went there for the first time today. Having grown up going to ranges in Torrance and Paramount, I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. Staff is very friendly, range and facilities are top notch...the RO asked if it was my first time there, and then proceeded to show me how the computerized target control works (no swinging targets here!). Nicest place I've ever shot, and it was worth the drive.

Awesome place, I'm totally spoiled by Field Time and I'm a member at another range.

I was there for the first time with a few friends yesterday. It was pretty crowded but we were able to get two lanes side by side as soon as we checked in. Friendly staff and everything is clean and new. Good air circulation, good lighting, and your target does not swing in the breeze of the AC. If I lived closer and shot indoors regularly I'd look into membership.

I’ve enjoyed shooting handguns at the Firing Line in Huntington Beach for over ten years. If I wanted to shoot full power rifle I used to drive out to the San Gabriel Gun Club, until it was closed, then switched to the Angeles Shooting Range. But the cost of gas these days is a deal breaker to drive all the way to Angeles from Orange County. Being local and having a 25 yard line Field Time is perfect for using 1000 inch targets to sight in my AR-15 and develop loads before driving out to Angeles. While I bring my own 1000 inch targets I’m sure others would benefit from and enjoy sighting in their AR-15 with these targets if available there. At $18 for two hours for non-members I consider them a good value.

Cheers,
W-W

Very nice range, clean with good lighting. They check your ammo and gun gets a bit excessive and annoying. Tough to shoot a hand gun when the guy next to you is shooting a 308 rifle.

I was told that a loaded magazine was considered a loaded weapon by one of their range officers but overall great indoor range
