That place was always so weird in terms of information and attitude towards the public. Kind of a bizarre LEO attitude, had some strange situations over the years where people were just treated poorly. Like an attitude that it was their range and they were just letting us use it out of the goodness of their hearts and we should be kissing their feet. No, I don't even know who "they" is, I assume it was the Sheriff.

Anyway, more cryptic stuff and no information as usual. It's as if no one cares there, and they disdain the public.

It sucks, the indoor range is LEO only. Thanks alot for taking our tax money and acting like it's a private country club. Don't hold your breath on the outdoor public range being "remodeled". Just some tech yuppies and their rich donor people along with the LEO's are going to get to use it, not us low level nothings.

This is the way our society is heading in general. Plus they have to lead us on Facebook for years with a bunch of cryptic BS and then flaunt their new country club in our faces while casually informing us we won't be allowed in.

Just got into it with someone on the Sheriff's office Facebook page:

Me: I find it really sad that we had a perfectly good public range for decades and enjoyed using it responsibly. Then we were told it was going to be closed for a short period and never given much info. Then we get to see pictures of a Taj Mahal for LEO only. What are we supposed to say, thanks? When will the range be open to the public again? Why doesn't our tax money pay for access? Does no one care?

SMCSO: The range had to be remodeled due to safety reasons and the money to remodel the range was donated by a local philanthropist. So yes, I will say "Thanks".

Me: And what does the public have to be thankful for? We just lost Chabot and there is no guarantee this range will be open, according to what you are "hearing" it seems unlikely anything is going to happen soon. Treating the public like second class is not a good policy.

These guys are dicks. They were always dicks to us for the past 15 years I have gone there, and this is just proof of the attitude that they don't care about the public and have nothing but contempt for us. I waited 2.5 years to be told I will not be allowed on the range? **** YOU.

sad news. this was the place I first shoot as a child in the early 90s. I got first class treatment from the silhouette pellet gun guys too one day. this really upsets me I noticed it becoming unfriendly towards the average citizen but I didn't know it was this bad.

Anybody have an answer for 'Fitty's question? It had me scratching my head when I saw that rule too.

So you can't use a 9mm Beretta PX4 on the pistol range because it's a centerfire handgun, but I could fire the same ammo in a CX4 carbine on the rifle range?


BTW, this update was posted on the 19th on the CP website.

The Siebel San Mateo County Sheriff's Office Firearms Range, Indoor Training Facility at Coyote Point has been completed, this state of the art range will be used for law enforcement personal training only. Phase II, the improvement of the outdoor 100yd range to be used by both LE and the public is underway. This will be completed some time in the first quarter of 2018. Please check back for updates which we will post when available. Thank you for your patience.

Nice, I spoke out on their Facebook page and they gave us a date for the first time in years. First quarter 2018, not going to hold my breath.

They rescinded centerfire pistol, according to a range person who worked there, because rim fire people complained it was too distracting during their "practice". The Sheriff's office jumped at the chance to shut it down. I believe that was 10 years ago?

I just want the mail slot on the rifle range to go away, it was super annoying and pointless. Hopefully some of our gripes reminded them that the public will be vocal and angry if they don't treat us a little better. I spent alot of money at that range over the last 20 years, so they at least could act as if our tax dollars and our $$ at the gate meant something. Right now it's as if the Sheriff is mother Teresa or something for letting us shoot there.

It's still crazy that the 8 million dollar Taj Mahal is LEO only. LEO and any tech yuppie who is friends with Siebel, I am sure. If there was some interest, I think we should organize a petition to allow the public to shoot there (they can charge a premium, make it so it's only some days of the week, etc.) but let us shoot our pistols for god's sakes.

What were the shooting associations there called? Who was a regular there that was CRPA or someone who might be able to help us here? I would be willing to broach the issue with Michel and Associates for some advice on how we could politely but forcefully ask the Sheriff to not turn the range into a country club for LEO and rich tech yuppies.
