Default Monthly Ventura County MEET @ Island View Enterprises - OCTOBER 19th 6PM

I know some of the current meets are quite a ways for some of us and I would like to get a possible head count for a meet in Ventura. I spoke with the owner of Island View Enterprises about a monthly meet in at their range and am wondering who would be interested?

I'm in! I'd definitely in for a Tuesday shoot only because they offer half off on the range fees for Military that day! If this does kick off, make sure you post about their ammo restrictions.

I was just there 3 hours ago, it should be on mondays 1/2 off if you are a calgunner.

That excludes my 7.62x54r plinking! Do they have a restriction on lead primers like Shooters Paradise?

NOPE! No restrictions on lead primers or personal reloads like shooters

No steel core!
No steel case!
No aluminum case!
and I'm almost 100% sure that's all the ammo restrictions for pistol and rifle anyway

The range traps can handle up to a .50 BMG but yes, no steel like anywhere else. Actually, I would love to find somewhere I 'could' shoot that stuff so I could save a few bucks haha

Mg911 guy, I can tell you a lot of places within 80 miles of Island View where you can shoot that steel/magnetic stuff, but it is like a puzzle, you have to be at the right place at the right time and you have to be willing to go off of the beaten path or pay a significant amount of money.

I hear you, we have been to a few ranges where SC is no bueno or deep in the NF and last time we went to shooters they were ok with it but I had to buy lead free primer pistol ammo. It's just my boys like to shoot their M44 mosins' they really like the fireball effect.

I'm still in for a monthly county meet @ IVE tho!!

In bold! That's exactly why I like going here: great customer service, clean, safe, reasonable prices, military discounts, SSE and did I mention they have great customer service!

With a little advance notice, I'd be interested in any date/time

Count me in. IVE is one of the best ranges and shop that I have ever been to. There customer service is the best. Just let me know a date and time and I'll see if it will work with my schedule.

I'm in, would be fun to meet some fellow Calgunners. A lot of you guys are good with pistols too, need some pointers for my lousy hold.

Let us know when, good times.

Let's do Fridays then fellas ... say 6 or 6:30PM. I work in the Valley so that would give me time to get home, load up and then get out that way. Let's do the first one in October?

IVE can be crowded on the weekends, but not always. I could possibly do a weekend but Friday after work is probably a better bet to have the place to ourselves or at least have enough lanes and availability.

Pistol Guy, you are the OP so what say you?

Pistol Guy, we need a set date, looks like Friday will be the best day for most of us, I just need to know ahead of time to ask to work in the morning for the day.
