    rumors say maybe a indoor pistol range. when we looked at a full sporting setup in the old soccer fields the problem was the need for a enviromental impact study Randy

    We figure we're pretty lucky to have the facility we do. It's located in a remote part of the base with nothing but Naval shell craters around us, and it's been here long enough that the EPA grandfather's us in over the lead contamination. Unfortunately we can't do shot recovery because we shoot over chaparral that can't be disturbed. 2 skeet/trap overlays, 25, 50 and 100 meter ranges, indoor archery, five stand and sporting clays with a bitchin' game cleaning area for hogs and deer. Pro shop and store with meeting area and kitchen for club functions and parties. It's also the official viewing site for launches on South Base.

    More oaks and sagebrush here. Rolling hills and grass too, but a lot of scrub. We are about 1/2 mile from the ocean so when it's nice we have a great view and fresh sea breeze. Now that "sea breeze" this morning was coming off of 50 F water so it was just a bit bracing!

    youll be ok.
    remember, this is a small town and even the motel is small. but it should be comfortable. pool looked good too! beware...no shade around where it is.

    skeet is my crack cocaine....

    I firmly believe in missing at least a few clays per round in order to ensure future generations of targets ahead, clay conservation! hahahaa

    When I'm feeling good and cocky on the skeet field, I head to the other end and shoot a couple rounds of wobble to humble myself....

    I just got back from Colorado; did some skeet shooting with my best friend. Went to the Boulder Gun Club (NOT in Boulder) and got to shoot in 109 F heat. I used my friend's guns--a highly tricked out 1100 and a K-80 tubed with Kolars. We also brought a pretty little sporting 1100 .410 he won at the Armed Forces a few years back. I didn't embarass myself or him, so it was a good day. His club was open on the 4th so we went out and shot there the following day (Isaac Walton #37 out by Schriever AFB). It was only 94 F there. Both nice facilities--I recommend 'em both.

    welcome bacon buddy....pop your questions on skeet/trap guns here!
    let me steer you away from brand new guns.
    dont overlook good solid american guns before you buy.
    look at what i was shooting at the meet. my old model 50 skeet winchester and as you saw, it did very well.
    fads and gimmicks dont break targets. you do.
    look towards a late model remington 1100 tournament grade 12ga. look for the model with an adjustable comb. that way you can raise the comb for when you shoot trap.
    heres a nice one w/o the adj comb...
