Default Getting Involved in Shooting Competitions

I'm new to shooting and want to get engaged in any kind of competitive shooting. Going to the range gets really boring. Whether it's 3 gun, evening competitions at shotgun ranges, there doesn't seem to be a lot of opportunities to get involved in organized shooting competitions in Socal.

Yea there are a lot of competition opportunities in SoCal. There is IDPA and IPSC at Prado, SSA Steel madness at raahaugees, and all the deadwood boys action pistol, 3-gun, and other matches at piru.

IDPA is a good place to start. Lot's of fun and the cost comes out close to the same as a range fee. Let them know you're new and they'll walk you through the basics.

There are lots of different shooting competitions in Socal. You just need to figure out what you really want to try. Are you interested in bullseye? benchrest? airgun? tacticool "precision"? run and gun? trap? skeet? 5 stand? live bird? sporting clays? metallic silhouette? F class? Highpower? position shooting? service rifle? muzzleloading? muzzleloading artillery? It's all available in or around to "Socal".

I really wanna get involved with a lot of it. Target handgun, "run and gun" handgun, long rifle precision shooting, sporting clay style shotgun shooting and 3 gun. Are there calendars or centralized areas to find out about events in my area. I've tried checking the calendars of local gun ranges.

Must be nice to be rich!!!

There is tons of shooting here. 1 hour in each direction. If I found it, so can you.

Have fun, see you out there!

Ya, I'm fairly up there in age relative to the internet, mid 30's, so I have the luxury of being able to finance an interest in the hobby. I have a P226 MK 25 so far, and I'd ultimately like to add a long-range rifle and O/U or semi shotgun for clay sports for around $2K each. The trick once I've practiced for a couple months is finding the organizations to compete with.

The cost of the firearms is just the beginning.
