San Leandro has ammo limits (no fmj or magnetic rifle ammo)

Livermore is an option too I think

livermore has the range divided into rifle side - sitting , firing from a bench only, and pistol, standing only

and shottys at the lower section

separate entry fees ($20 ?) for each

front desk peeps and range masters are pretty friendly

You work there or something? I'll go to Richmond.

Livermore with the closure of Chabot and USI are simply gouging their customers because they can, it's sad.

Saw this in my rifle club's forum, damn there's been a lot of changes.

Quote:
Milspec Armory on Meridian Ave , San Jose, is now closed except for pick ups on prior gun transfers, official Sept 28th. I have invited Ari to come speak @ GS2AC on Thursday Sept 27 to inform us of what San Jose City did to him, to the extent he can / willing to discus it to help us watch for more in San Jose and new activity in other cities.

Jackson Arms range and store in South SF is Closing(-ed)

Bullseye range and store in San Rafael closed and left thier Castro Valley store keeping only thier Nevada store.
(But Solar Tactical took over the Castro Valley / East Bay store on Redwood Rd. Solar Tactical's first store is a great little shop in east Livermore east of Lawrence Livermore research complex)

Chabot Rod and Gun club, formerly running the East Bay MUD Chabot regional park range, closed permanently two years ago. It was one of the (then) only three Bay Area public or public club membership accessible ranges with a distance over 100 yards.
Santa Clara's county Metcalf 200 range remains open to clubs and public (one Sunday/month)
And there is a members only/ match 200 yd range at Richmond Rod & Gun
If Petaluma coastal ranch Two Rock range has reopened it USED to be up to 300 yards

The San Jose Coyote Point Sheriffs range may re-open to its old , pre remodel, public hours some weeknights and Saturday's for juniors.

Kerleys of Cupertino consolidated thier operations at what is U S Firearms co in Sunnyvale, after Sunnyvale Measure C , passed 2013, caused original owner, Eric F to step away. Harry Dwyer consolidated his old business and Eric's at the Sunnyvale location, 590 S Mary Ave at El Camino Real. (They remain closed Thursday's, Sunday's and Mondays open Tue-Wed and Fri- Sat. They have extensive gunsmithing capabilities

I was in my local (Reno, NV) gun store the other day and they had a sign that said they had been asked by some gubbmint agency (I forget which) not to sell high-capacity magazines to California residents. That is some bullshit.

So if you are in Nevada to buy stuff, park out of sight of the shop and don't look like a tourist.

Pay cash too I guess. Are they asking to see IDs? Could possibly just pay cash and say don’t have DL on them. That’s pretty weak if they are asking for ID.

Also, California has the $$ to pay to have some cronies parked and watching? Never thought that would have happened.
