Default Raahauge's (Corona CA) is open today, even though...

Their phones are dead due to flooding. They've had a rough couple of months. They had a fire, a young man lost his life on the pistol range, now this.

I shot there today, and the targets were fun and the machines were working. If you're in So Cal swing by and break some clay.

Can I "break clay" using a benelli M4 or VEPR 12?

In not sure what an M4 or a VEPR is. As long as they're legal, you're safe, you only load two shells at time, I would think so.

But it's best to ask them first. I'd say call first, but the phones may still be down.

YSR - Do you know what the minimum barrel length is at Raahauges? The M4 or VEPR might have short barrels on them.

Bring what you want. They dont check guns. You could technically bring in something in illegal configuration and they wouldn't even know, or check. I have a friend who was trying to hit clays with one of those SERBU short barreled shotguns all lame tacticool'ed out. Old guys looked at him like ..thats about it.

Just dont shoot glass or tannerite at the shooting bays and pretty much anything else you do is good to go. You're your own range officer.

Sorry guys, my post was is regarding the sporting clays course. I'm not sure what they allow/don't allow in the rifle/pistol bays.

Try calling, or ask when you get there.

Please let me clarify my question, if I use a short barreled shotgun, will I be able to actually hit any clays? I want to try skeet/trap but I don't have that type of shotgun.

I have a tactical 870 with an 18" barrel.
I bought a 28" barrel for it and while heavy it works fine for sporting clays.

Yes, but it's not the optimal tool for the job.

Where do you live, you can try one of mine if you'd like to.

Yeah, not the optimal tool for the job but I'm trying to not buy any more firearms (I know this is one of the stupidest things to say here on calguns).

Thanks for your offer! I'm in the city of Orange and try to make it out to raahauge's at least four times a year.

You will be missing out on a fantastic experience. Yes the correct shotgun configuration can make or break the experience. I am in it for the fun. A proper barreled shotgun setup by an expert will give you that wow experience that you would never have known otherwise. First time out breaking clays with the proper shotgun is something I will never forget. Now I am hopelessly hooked.
