Default Looking for a beginners range offering basic tuition in LA

Hi guys,

I found your forum while searching Google and am hoping you can help a newbie. I'm looking for an outdoor range, that's going to welcome out of towners (UK) who have never fired a gun before. The range will hopefully offer basic advice on handling a pistol... i.e loading, safety switch, range rules regarding safety etc before we go "live".

I've used pellet (.22) rifles and pistols a few times, and have been clay pigeon shooting with a 12 gauge a couple times but my 2 friends are absolute beginners and have never even held a gun.

We will be in town 02/09 thru 02/14. I'm hoping some of you guys will have been to a range in the past and witnessed training etc being performed. Wheres best?

I've had a look at the range review thread but most of the ranges websites don't specify training. The LA gun club offers 2 hours for $100... but being from the UK (where we are currently under 5" snow), we want shoot in the sun A place to shoot looks ideal, but doesn't list any training etc on their site. I don't want to turn up and be expected to know what to do straight off the bat... that's just going to piss everyone else on the range off.

Thanks for listening.
