Default Good gun ranges in the Sacramento area?

What are the good gun ranges in the Sacramento City/County area?

Interests: Defensive shotgun, carbine from 25+ yards, handgun to 25 or 50 yards.

I would like to be able to shoot some buckshot or carbine while moving. I am also interested in classes.

What are you looking to shoot (pistol, rifle, or shotgun)?
Sac Valley would be a good place. For shotgun, there are better.

Sac Valley is one of, if not the best range west of the Rockies. Especially if you want to participate in an organized shooting sport.

Short of a few members-only ranges, there isn't any organized range I am aware of which allows that in the Sacramento region.

Sacramento Valley Shooting Center has 3 gun matches, run by their Cowboy town group. That would include handgun, rifle and shotgun. I don't think you have to be a member to shoot with them, but you can call Sac Valley and ask about it.

When you refer to "shooting some buckshot" you are making it clear that you are new to shotguns. Their are many different kinds of shot sizes you can use in a 12 gauge, for instance.

If you're interested in classes, go to the NRA website and see what they are offering. And there are plenty of NRA certified instructors in town, just google them.
