Can just anyone with a pistol come and sign up? I’m trying to get involved but don’t know what to do.

Come on Out
Everyone is welcome!

There is a safety briefing before the match. It helps to have 5 magazines, but fewer can work (will need someone to reload for you while at the shooter's box). If you have a holster for your gun bring it. But a case works. There is a waiver to sign and that's about it.

We focus on safety and having a good time. No pressure or prizes :-)

June Brings Whirly Gigs
Our little party was enhanced by a new acquisition...

Here's the video,

1911-CV 07-21-2019 8:30 AM

July - Bigger and Better Than Ever!
We had 46 shooters and 62 guns, and a new Stage 5 opened in July. Plus whirlygigs built for 22. Nice breeze came up later in the morning to keep temperatures cooler.

See the video here.

Signups have already opened for next month (sign up link is in top post). Only 19 spots left!

Come on out and have some fun.

1911-CV 08-25-2019 11:12 AM

August - Better, Faster, Stronger
We had a great practice session Friday night with tips and coaching from Henry Toribio. Check this out!

The match on Saturday went great as shooters got to play with the whirlygigs again. See the match video

Bump for a fun match !!

Good for beginners as well as expert shooters.

1911-CV 11-16-2019 4:29 PM

Nov Beautiful Day & Toys for Tots
Another beautiful day in the desert; 41 shooters shooting 54 guns. Last vehicles off Range at 11:10. Scores on the Web at 11:16. Very, very smooth.

Great temperatures and toys for the tots.

Here's the video: Watch here

newbie1234 11-22-2019 10:11 PM

From the video, how far from the target ? And how big is the target (white disk) ?

1911-CV 11-23-2019 5:06 PM

How far are the Targets?
As you can see in the video, there is a lot of variety in the steel targets. There are quite small (4") disks on the 22 caliber star. There is a 6" plate that everyone shoots at about 7 yards (closest), a lot of 8" plates, and big, square 12" X 18" plates on some of the stages. Farthest distance is probably 15 yards.

It's a fun shoot so you can miss and still have a good time.

Have fun, be safe, and shoot some guns...

1911-CV 12-23-2019 6:39 PM

December was cool!
Bit cool for the December match. Only :turned: 39 guns out to play. We didn't need ice for the water, but the skies were clear and we received more toys for the tots.

A safe and fun time for all. Here is the video

1911-CV 01-18-2020 5:22 PM

January - Cool Shooting
January brought bright crisp clear skies. Bit cool to start, but the sun warmed our group.

Here's the video

1911-CV 02-15-2020 4:33 PM

Sunny February
Beautiful day in the desert. The sun warmed the shooters nicely. Several new faces. March and April were cancelled.

1911-CV 05-09-2020 4:29 PM

May Match - Success
New rules for San Bernardino County meant the May 16 match was a GO!

The May match was a success following some new rules:
1. If you don't feel good, please stay home.
2. If you'd be uncomfortable being closer than 6' from an RSO with both of your faces covered, please stay home.
3. Face covering required.
4. You are responsible for your own gloves, hand-sanitizer, wipes, or whatever. Assume everything that you touch is contaminated.
5. No one is allowed to say: "we're all in this together".:)

Match video is here

DueceMcGurk 05-18-2020 2:24 PM

Is there a rule book that describes what weapons fit in each class? I want to register properly.

For example, 1911A1 in 45 ACP and 9m. S&W M&P 15-22. Lever guns.

Looking forward to June 20th. Thanks.

1911-CV 05-19-2020 6:41 PM


It's a fun shoot and the class can be changed on-site if it isn't quite right. Depends as much on customizing as caliber:

Centerfire Pistol Limited - 1911A1 in 45 ACP & 9mm (probably)
Centerfire Pistol Open - maybe here if you have red dot, etc.

Rimfire Rifle Limited - S&W M&P 15-22 (one of these)
Rimfire Rifle Open

Hope you make it out!

November was Toys for Tots
Beautiful Saturday, a breeze to moderate the temperatures (ok, a tad chilly at first, but it warmed quickly). Lots of shooters back at the event and many toys were collected for the kids.

Here is the video

If you forgot to bring a toy or forgot to come to the Event, don't worry. Just sign up and come to the Christmas Event. We will gladly take your toys, cash, or whatever at that time.

Thank you I am looking for a club/Range like some of the others where they give you a key and you can shoot from whatever set hours it is hard for me to go on set days and driving from Hemet. But it looks like a very nice range maybe I will be able to make it soon.

1911-CV 01-17-2021 3:23 PM

Palm Springs Gun Club
That's the way Palm Springs Gun Club works, but they don't have a distance range for rifles right now. Matches there are still being cancelled due to CV-19.

It doesn't take much longer to get there from Hemet and the wait for membership was pretty short last time I checked. Here is their contact PSGC

LMan57 01-17-2021 3:26 PM

Thank you I will check it out.:)

LMan57 01-17-2021 3:43 PM

Damn, they ask for one of these and I don't know anyone in the club.

Referral: Please provide one of the following:
1. Referral name and email of current PSGC Member of 2 years in good standing.
2. Referral name and contact info of a PSGC Business Member in good standing.
3. Attach a reference letter from a non-related person attesting to the character of the applicant

1911-CV 01-17-2021 7:25 PM

It's any one of the listed items... surely you know a non-related person who can attest to your good character, right?
