The county's contractor needs to fix some issues and complete construction. Unofficial estimate is Feb 2020.

The Good News:
There will be 18 shooting lanes.

We will no-longer have to shoot through "mail slots"!

It looks to be the fanciest outdoor range in the Bay Area, when completed. See photos




omg so beautiful! it's like the TNT dividers - i'm out of town Feb 2020 and too busy in Jan 2020, so March is gonna be a nice warm hug

Got to take a look at it this weekend and it really does look nice and sounds like the plan is still to open in the next few weeks, so Feb might still be a reality.
However, it sounds (and looks) like it will be 100y rifle only, no more short range rimfire at all. I was under the impression that there would still be some of that possible, but from what I was told, it will be rifles @100 only

Gose, Short range rimfire is available but to Members Only on weekend mornings. Once a month we hold .22LR pistol matches (Olympic/NRA style).

Will that be shot from down range of the benches, or still from flthe benches with targets posted at 25 instead of 100?

As a member of the club, I agree. We want it to open ASAP. But bear in mind the estimate of 6 months was the estimate we were given by the county and their contractor.

So here's some good news. Because of the huge changes to the site, the Sherif's Range Master requires we have a whole new set of Safety Procedures and Operations set up and certified. The club's Range Officers (myself included) are going through 3 days of training this month. After we get the stamp of approval from the Range Master, they'll open the range up. So soon.

So more delays with CP. Ok does anyone know for certain if the public is allowed? Will membership be required? And what types of ammo is accepted? Will shotguns be allowed? Thank you.

Because public target shooting is not an "essential service or activity" the Club RSOs can't meet at the range to get trained, certified, or iron out operations until AFTER the Governor and the Mayor drop the COVID-19 emergency restrictions.

While we do NOT know anything for certain, our goals are to keep most things the same:
• Membership will not be required to shoot on public evenings
• The public will be allowed on M, W, F evening (hours TBD)
• 100yrd targets with rifles only (no pistols)
• Ammo will be limited to calibers smaller than 50BMG
• No black powder
• No shotguns

When that will happen is anybody's guess now with the Pandemic. All I can offer is my general advice in our current climate: keep your Go-Bags ready, your powder dry, and help your friends and neighbors get through this. Use this opportunity to show your non-shooting friend how important 2A rights are in protecting our civil-liberties and in keeping order should SHTF.

I would add that steel case or steel core ammos are not allowed.

They want to keep the new bullet stop in good condition.

They check the ammo when you check in with magnet. Anything sticks will need to stay in your car.

No more slugs allowed? Used to be ok on the 100y side
