Default Yolo Sportsmen's Range experience

i just got back from shooting at yolo sportsmen's and i have to say this place is the best range ive ever been to. the staff is etremely friendly and helpful. fellow shooters were the same. the place is kept clean. the range officers even helped me to drift my front sight on my mosin and spot my shots to get it sighted in. anyone looking for a shooting range in the north bay area/ sac area should go here!!!

I loved shooting at Yolo. Cheap memberships, pretty empty, and friendly people.

Yeah I enjoy that range. It can get pretty breezy sometimes (my wife hates wind) but it doesn't bother me much. Very cheap annual memberships, and there are some good eats in Davis right down the road.

I've been a family member at YSA for a number of years now, love it. Great folks to deal with.

Yeah the crew there is top notch. It's my daily driver (I'm there pretty much everyday before work on the 50 yard line). Blake (the CRO) is super helpful and overall a great guy with advice and good conversation.

At $3/visit for members and an annual membership cost of only $50 it can't be beat for the area.

Regarding the breeze/wind: Avoid the 11:15-3:45pm time if the forecast is for a breeze that day. I don't know if it's voodoo or what but we joke about it at the line, the wind will just stop at 3:45pm for the rest of the day. You can almost set your clock to it.

Plus at that hour the line looks like this:

I don't like YSA.
Stuck in the past, can't even be bothered to get a credit card reader. I almost never carry cash, so when I go out there and hand them a CC, they just look at me funny. At this point, its easy to get a cheap, or even free CC reader. Why restrict your ability to take people's money???

Their website is old and out dated. How hard would it be to have somebody update it, even once a month? I have been out there several times to sign up for classes, only to be told, "That class is full". Certainly they have a club member that is internet savvy enough to update their website.

I live in Yolo County, and would like to use the place more, even become a YSA member, but their unwillingness to join the modern world turns me off.

I enjoy YSA. The people are helpful and friendly, and the range is clean. I have taken classes there and have nothing bad to say about the place. I am a member so the range fees can't be beat.

Physical limitation of location. I've brought it up several times and the answer is the same every time. Due to their location off the street there's no infrastructure from AT&T to run a line to their office to provide a reliable and secure phone line to allow the CC to run.

Same with Internet connectivity (I proposed a Square-like solution).

Plus, they've been a cash only shop for years and it's always busy just the same. If you've been there before and you know it's cash only there's no excuse to purposefully go to the range and not have cash.

Never been to a range that takes credit cards and I've been competing for 35 years now.Most will take checks.
