North Fresno, right in front of saint agnes LOL. I have excellent skills working with wood. I actually can do anything involved with interiors of homes and I have even built a couple of money exchange rooms (IE. bullet proof). I am usually always busy with work but would be glad to meet up and help when I can. Plus always looking for new plinking buddies and so is my wife if any of you guys have girls that like to shoot.

My name is John. I'm from Strathmore (right between Fresno/Bako). Saw the booth at the World Ag Expo. I am a Customer Service Rep for JBT. I apply coating to fruit at packing houses. Hobbies are endless, anything that has a motor, From r/c cars to top fuel dragsters. Muscle Cars, Hot rods, Off-Road racing/dunes. Pretty much shoot everything from my 22-250 for coyotes, to my S&W 500 for wild pigs. Let me know if you need a hand for anything, or go to the range.

Bakersfield for the last 39 or so years.

39 years into shooting sports, building FALs, AKs, ARs, shot IPSC a couple of times at 5-Dogs, shot 3-gun once at 5-Dogs, not really a hunter other than bushwhacking ground squirrels occasionally.

Unemployed.

I know a little about a lot of things. And a lot about a couple of things.

Hi Everyone,

Fresno, here. Im still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up. I think I might have built a FAL once, but no certain.

from avenal. our claim to fame is a prison and a dump that seems to service the whole dang state. But our crown jewel from a shooters point of view is our gun club. its huge and only $25 a year too. i would like to encourage you folks to visit the club at least once. no special skills really other than having an uncanny ability to annoy my wife.

I didn't know Avenal had a gun club, must search.

The range listed here?
http://www.huntingnavigator.com/hunt...ashooting.html

Is that a 500 meter rifle range?

Is there a website?

no website, and as far as i can tell yes its 500y. they have quite a few acres. so much so that they would farm the land and pay some expenses. btw they have these stadium lights that you pump quarters in and you can shoot at the pistol range all night long if you so desire.

Night shooting? Without tracers?

I must investigate this

A 500 yard range a few miles away, woohoo.

Name is Chris, live in Bakersfield.
Hobbies include shooting rifle, shotgun, pistols, muzzleloaders, reloading pistol & rifle, haven't got into shotgun yet, also do some casting for pistol, rifle & BP. Been shooting for 30+ years, reloading for about 28. I am a NRA certified rifle instructor & work with Boy Scouts & Kern Shooting Sports. My other hobbies include camping, Ham radio (KI6GRQ), prospecting (was doing gold dredging till the enviro wackos with the help of Arnold & Jean Fuller got it banned), was into hunting till the lead ban started, and old cars. I was working as a mechanic but took a paycut & now install accesories on Chevys at the dealership.

Willing to help new shooters & those that want to learn reloading, also up for shooting trips & camping.

Good to see new guys trickling in here, thanks for taking the time to check in.

I've got two things to give you guys a heads up on:

1. We're trying to elect some Calguns members to the CRPA (CA's branch of the NRA), they need a little help. Get more info here.

2. We have a Central Valley Social Group where you can start threads and talk amongst yourselves about local events, shops, ranges, shoot-n-q's or whatever else. There aren't many discussions just yet, so go start one!
