I was there last month, the gun store section is by appointment only. Customer service for the range didn't seem any different in my opinion

The appointment-only thing makes no sense to me at a range. Of course I am going to browse the store while I wait for a lane. Will I buy something? Not if the store has hardly anything in stock for me to fondle. Last time I was there, they had maybe 3 long guns (all bolt-action) and maybe 6-8 pistols (all either Glock or Sig) in the case. Nothing that I was in the market for.

They normally had 1-2 people working the gun store. The manager would come in to help if they got busy. I never saw more than that working in there, except during the panic at the end of SSE.

Smokin' Barrel always has good stock, so perhaps I will be going there instead of IVE when their range opens in April or so.

A little late to the party, I've finally created my account. Anything else I need to do to participate in Cal Gun shooting meets?

When is the next range day? Is it free or discounted?

Welcome to the party, pal! Every Monday I believe is half price for calgunners, just mention it to the guy at the register and he'll apply the discount. Every last Friday of the month is free shooting for calgunners.

He said no aluminum casings, and no magnetic ammo, however they didn't even check me last time I went.

Awesome thank you very much for the info. I'll try to set my calendars for Free shooting Fridays.

I remembered it was the last Friday of the month just after opening my second beer. I blame you guys for not posting in this thread the week leading up to yesterday. Maybe next month for me!

I made it to Free Shooting Fridays, and I had a blast. I was there from 3:30pm to a little past 5pm. Only paid $1.50 since I forgot to bring targets. I also was given a target by someone on their way out. So that was very nice of them.

I look forward to going again this month. Only thing I didn't enjoy was getting blasted by muzzle blasts from rifles on both sides of me. I may bring my AR next time with the Surefire Procomp and get people back

The Small hole target was done with my Ruger 10/22 using only iron sights and a bipod. Target was all the way to the back.

Man sized target was with my new 1911, barely breaking it in so please be kind.

I think I'll be going tonight. Anyone want me to bring a gun they've been wanting to try?

I can also bring my m&p40c if anyone is interested in buying: I'm moving out of state and is my least shot gun.

It was a fun friday night shoot at Ive. Got to meet fellow calgunner scifi and got a really good heads up and reminder that calgunners shoot for free every last friday of the month. scored on a super cool cg t-shirt and a nice patch, oh and scifi kicked down on an all day shooting pass. I shot my new used ruger vaquero and had a good time. some guy next lane over shot the roof with his shot gun and was told next time it would cost him 50 bucks. thanks scifi for representing.

I'm going this weekend. Got my new AR to test out. Let me know if anyone wants to try one of my guns. Preferably bring your own ammo though lol.

I got a Stoeger M3000 24" 12 gauge if anyone wants to try it out. A few more other guns, send me private message if anyone is interested.

Just so you all know - I paid full price for my lane today- they told me the only calguns day was on Mondays - he told me Mondays calguns members get 50% off rates

The guy at the counter said because it's not on The Islandview website they cannot honor it.

Lame

I'm sorry to hear they made you pay full price. They tried to do the same thing to me in Feb or March. I politely asked the associate to verify with someone else and they informed him that the last Friday of the month was indeed Free Shoot day for Calgun Members.

I showed up around 5:30pm and stayed until 7:30pm ish. Had the range by myself for a good while. Also noticed when the range officer "checked" my AR. He covertly came over to inspect it, pressed on the bullet button to make sure it was legal. Fun times.

Unfortunately, they seem to have high turnover lately and the new people never seem to be told about it. I suggest you have them check with their manager, that should work. The guy who was at the counter when I was there yesterday didn't know about Calguns night either, my apologies for your experience.

Wow, checking your AR? They didn't check mine, it's legal but damn... makes me think twice about what I bring with me to indoor ranges I guess.

I wonder if that's a policy there or an over zealous employee. I wonder what would happen if it wasn't legal in their opinion??

It's alright -

Ive been going there about 2-3x a month lately. I'm actually concerned if they are getting enough business to stay open- it's been really slow the last few times I've been there.

Hello,

I live in L.A. but spend a lot of time in Oxnard so I thought I would try out the Ventura shoot. I will be coming with a friend. I look forward to meeting some new Calguns friends.

Yes, still free, ask for a manager if the guy behind the counter doesn't know or doesn't want to give it to you.

Had to convince the guy behind the counter it was a free shot day but after talking with two people on site they gave the free lane. Overall it was a great experience, you all should check it out if you haven’t

So is the monthly shoot on Friday the 24th of Nov (day after Thanksgiving) still on? I'll be around for this one and would like to come and bring some friends...
