I was just thinking to myself the other day why there wasn't a following for gun rights in California. Then I found this, I'll help where I can!

The range opens every day at 15:30 and closes at Sunset. To use the range, the public had to complete a range safety course and sign in at Range Control before proceeding to the range.

Senior leaders on Camp Roberts, are competitive shooters. The timing might be right to get such a range built with interest from local shooters and politicians. We have been pushing it from our end as well.
The only problem with this: Is this going to be on Camp Roberts? If so are you sure that civilians are allowed to bring firearms onto that base? If so what kind of firearms?... Sorry not trying to attack you, but I highly doubt base officials would be down to build a range where people like myself would bring AR15's to it for target practice.

It is however possible that they would allow civilians to go onto base, my father use to go hunting on certain areas of Camp Pendelton, but that may have been because he was a retired O-6 with 28 years in service

Anyone know a spot to go shoot in the Northern Valley that's not regulated? I'm trying to find a place to practice real life exercises like hammer pairs and failure to stop drills. And being able to move and shoot.

I have been doing this, taking some of my friends who have never shot a rifle out before, they all end up loving it and one started collecting because of it.

Rusty, hunting has always been allowed on Camp Roberts, so civilians and firearms are not unusual.

We have many ranges up here that simply are not used much anymore, since a few others were heavily upgraded for training. The 600yd KD range being a good example. It is mostly used for zeroing (at 25m) before the troops walk to the next range to qualify on pop-up targets. Annually we host the state rifle competitions (Big-G runs that team BTW), but the KD range mostly sits and grows weeds the rest of the year. Heck, even the Marines use the pop-up range a lot now

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself...A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."......Cicero

I have an idea but I do not know who to talk to.

Idea for fundraising:

Rifle Raffle at gunshows.

I saw this done years ago for Boy Scouts. You get a board with 100 squares on it, sell each one for $10 and raffle off a huntin' rifle or whatever. Bam. Calguns has 900 dollars and the table is paid for. Everything else is, of course, volunteer. (in a legal raffle, the charity must get 90% of raffle receipts)

I am an FFL and can volunteer time and effort to do this in Northern California. All I need are some numbers from Calguns 501c papers to apply for this stuff.

Who do I talk to and who wants to do it with me? I'm open for shows from Sacramento north. I wanted to do it in early March in Redding but it's a big redtape hassle as you can imagine.

What happened to the idea of an additional public range somewhere in SLO County?
