Default BLM Land Closest to Vacaville

What options do I have for some outdoor shooting near Vacaville. Iím disabled and canít hike in too far from the road or parking area.

If there isnít anything within a reasonable distance what outdoor ranges do you recommend? More than 100 yards would be preferred.


Thank you for your help!

How far you feel like driving?
Spenceville isn’t too far away and isn’t too bad during the week, weekends get crowded and their is some sketchy people there sometimes..
Oroville clay banks also only bout 1 1/2 hr drive it’s a way better range, but get there early on a weekend..

+1 for spenceville or oroville given your medical condition. There at benches there and parking close to the firing line.

I recommend Murphy’s/Camp 9 Road if you need a BLM beyond 800 yards.

looks like they cleaned it up and added some new tables and gravel at Spenceville judging by this Youtube video footage from last May 2018.

Yolo sportsman's is decent and doesn't cost too much. Offset price of gas by range fees.

Thanks for all the info. Spencerville sounds like a winner.

I just picked up another long gun, another reason to head outside. Got a good deal on. Springfield SOCOM 16. I’ve already mounted a scope on it, time to sight it in.

It would be fun to get a group of guys, gals too if there are into it, each bring at least one unique rifle. I have an M1D Garand i don’t shoot nearly enough. I’d be happy to do some trade off with others with fun rifles to shoot.

Last Thursday of every month it is shut down for clean up, and he is right, weekends get there early. It's open from Sunrise to sunset. it is known as the Rabe Road gun range https://wego.here.com/directions/mix...b_locale=en_US

I’m doing some zeroing and some drills at Camp 9 early tomorrow.

As much as I don’t mind spenceville, I like the ability to do dynamic drills rather than sit on the line. Maybe next time I’ll go to spenceville since I do have some new shooters to train.
