I belong to the Coalinga Rifle Club. 1k high power range, silhouette range to 500m, pistol pit, 50\100\200 rifle sight in range. The silhouette and HP ranges are first come first served and if one is in use the other is "closed".

BLM land off I5 at Tumey Hills lets you shoot, but its hard to do long range stuff when its closed to vehicles April 15 to Oct 15 every year. Unless you like to hike all your gear and targets in that is.

That's right in the path of the Complex fires, hopefully they survive, everybody up there.... Crazy

Wait til it cools down. That place can be hell on earth. Sac Valley can, too, but not like Coalinga. To be fair, I was 6 months pregnant last time I was there and it was 110+ degrees, so of course it was going to be uncomfortable.

All the main firing lines are now covered at least. We take a pop-up and set it at the firing berm if we are not shooting at 1,000 and will be there for a bit.

Also, sunrise to sunset, so get there at sunrise and the winds are calmer and the heat is not an issue. By 11am it starts to warm up. The winds vary and change often, so its good practice for making wind adjustments if you are there mid-late afternoon.

and $30/yr unless you are close to renewal then its $15 for the remainder of the year. $5 per guest, not always an RO present, first-come-first-served essentially, bathrooms and showers too.

Well thatís good! I havenít been there in 6 years. All I had was an umbrella and a folding chair. Hubby shot a 3x600. We drank over 4 liters of water. Neither of us had to pee, lol.

If it was closer, that $30/year doesnít sound bad at all! Sac Valley is $16 per person for the day.

Well that's the problem, you guys should have been drinking chilled wine and cold beer.

Kidding aside, the 600 shooting berm etc is still exposed. But really it isn't 110 very often

Yeah, that weekend we were there was one of the hottest of the year. I ended up having to pull targets, too, even though I didnít get to shoot.

At eighty cents a round for 54r ammo I know a few Mosin shooters who would wipe away tears and wave good-by to the shot going down range.

There has never been 54r ammo available for 8/10 of a cent per round.

Tumey and Panoche are still closed to target shooting and I'm going nuts.

What's your experience with the Coalinga range as far as the 1k being open since it is first come first serve?

When I want to shoot far at an actual range, I drive down to Coalinga Rifle Club. They have a 1,000 yard high power range with a few target frames for public use (bring targets) with shooting berms every 100 yards (sans 2 distances).

they also have a silhouette range with targets from 25m to 500m (yes meters).

The two rifle ranges are first come first served however due to how they are aligned. If someone is on the silhouette line then the high power is closed and vice versa.

$30/year, no qualifying. Sunrise to sunset shooting, 7 days a week unless portions of the range are closed for matches.

We drive down the night before and eat at Harris Ranch, crash at a hotel and then shoot before the heat/wind starts. But its doable to drive down early, shoot a bunch and be home by dinner

Why thank you babe...it was those HP guys at chabot that knocked over my scope stand (no one fessed up) and then that dude that shot my target in rapid fire prone and everyone looked at me like I’m the idiot that can’t count to 10. At least I used to get cheap wholesale pricing on bullets for the headache of dealing with that. Remeber all the rat poop in the butts @ Chabot 200 yard range? Yuck that was so gross...someone needed to post up down there with a Gamo and handle business.

Never had bad experiences like that at Sac Valley, usually the further you go from the Bay Area, people get more friendly, polite, and honest. By the time you get to Texas they’re still saying Sir and Ma’am.

Solar Tactical in Livermore has a private 1000 yard range in the Livermore hills.
I think they only let you on it if you take their long range shooting class. might be worth it for some long range instruction and access to a range.
