Default How slammed is Angeles on Sundays?

I've been going for years but always on weekday mornings. I've never been on a Sunday.

My wife asked me to take her to shoot the AR I recently built for her (along with the 10/22 I bought her) and we are planning on arriving tomorrow around 9:45 AM.

Is that early enough to get a lane and not feel too crowded?

Yeah, it will be crowded. Believe it or not, I have noticed it get a little more roomy by 3pm.

Don't ever go to Angeles on a Sunday I made that mistake once. It was a mad house and took forever to find a bench on both rifle sides

By the way, they open at 8am I believe on weekends. That would be the best time to get there.

I stopped going on weekends, too many people. Every ceasefire there is always one guy who stops at the bench... always one.

I was there today from 2-4:30. Didn't have to wait to get a lane.

I have been going to Angeles for at least 10 years and refuse to go there on weekends anymore. It gets very crowded, very early. Still a great range, just avoid weekends if you can.

I was there today on pistol side. Plenty of room after 10:30.
I left after family of yahoos showed up next to me and their 14-year-old son stepped back from line and behind me with a loaded pistol.
Finished up plinking with my .22 AR on the sillo range.
I hate weekends there.

My buddy says it starts to open up at about 11, still crowded, but you can get a spot.

This was true! ^^^^

Small wait for a rifle table.

.22 plinking area and metal target area were not crowded.

Shot a K31 my buddy brought.

Signed the petitions.

The 22 plinking area was a lot of fun! Don't know when they put it in, but man, it was a nice change of pace from shooting paper.

From my perspective, it's really hard to go to ANY range on the weekends here. Even the private ones are quite busy. I love that there are more shooters out but I just wish we had some more ranges! When I go back home to GA, I never have that problem

Let's see...

Population of LA County: 10.02 million
Population of the entire state of GA: 10.1 million

'Nuff said.
