Calguns really is the best venue, but there is also this group on Facebook (although it isn't particularly active):

Thank you Sir...

A close friend of mine went to the Richmond Rod and Gun Club IDPA, he said it was not legit, and that they did not follow IDPA procedures correctly. I may go check them out and take their intro corse if there are no other local places. Are there any other locations?

They have a active page for 530 that I sold a couple rifles through. It's too bad there is nothing like that around here.

Sorry, but your friend is wrong.

Occasionally, we have a stage that may have some illegal elements. This is generally due to time constraints when building stages rather than an intentional disregard for the rules. In our most recent match, we had two stages that were technically not kosher, but this was because the match director was bogged down building three stages by himself because of a lack of volunteers for the match and didn't have time to mentor some newer stage designers on what is legal and what isn't (which plays into a personal peeve of mine...if you are going to ***** about our stages, please show me how the ones you've built were perfectly legal...oh, you've never actually come out and designed/built one yourself?...I see). I find that there's a direct correlation between "griping about stage/match design" and "never having ever lifted a finger to help out."

I'm one of the IDPA coordinators for the club, and I can personally tell you that we have a commitment to being as compliant as possible with the IDPA rules (as well as a long track record of putting on quality local and sanctioned matches).

In any case, the next nearest IDPA match is in Sacramento. United Sportsmen in Concord have been putting on matches, but all shooting at that club is on hiatus while they investigate bullets found in a church parking lot on the other side of the hill from the club. The Sacramento folks are good guys, but they get 100+ shooters at their matches. I haven't shot IDPA at USI, but their USPSA matches seem to be done well.

Don't get so defensive.

I have helped out plenty at East Coast events, I have put in my time. So you are an A5S for assuming.

My friend gave the impression that the competition was unprofessional on scoring and procedures. Not on range set up, but that could be a deal breaker as well.

I will go and see for myself, word of mouth is often unreliable. I will compare Sac with Concord. I know there is one somewhere around Durham as well, and I do visit that area frequently.

Sorry, man, but hard not to get defensive when we bust our butts to put on matches for shooters. Not like it's a paid gig.

I didn't assume anything. I stated a demonstrable fact. And while there was implied criticism, it was directed at the person who made the derogatory comments. That wasn't you.

Do please come out. I think you'll find that we do a good local match.

Hey all.

I used to hang out regularly in the 2A forum, only finally drifted here.

I'm in south San Jose, and east of San Jose. No, keep going, further, yes, past the Observatory.

I'm occasionally down at Metcalf for the NRA monthly. These days has usually been just been somewhere out in my back yard.

Hi everyone, I've lurked on the CalGun boards for quite some time but only recently registered as a user and made a post. There are many different "introduce yourself" threads amongst the various sub-forums but I figured I'd post in the Bay Area Chapter since the Bay is where I was born and raised.

I live in Berkeley (no, I'm not a hippie!) and mainly shoot at the Chabot Gun Club and San Leandro Rifle & Pistol Range. I look forward to interacting more with this community!
