Who all is out there?
I will be returning to Fresno at the end of September (unless a wrench gets in the works) and I need to get back on things. I've been in Indiana for 2 years. I used to be manager of Fresno Rifle and Pistol Club, so that was where I used to shoot. I could go back up there, but I can't go shooting with my friend and former range officer because he was banned for life, and I don't know what other places there are to shoot outdoors now. Any recommendations?
I had met a few members up at the range, but I haven't been up there since 2002. Any of you guys want to have a Fresno get-together so we can all get aquainted?

As far as established ranges go you hit the nail on the head with FRPC. there is "the range" down in fresno an indoor range, pistols only I think but can't say for sure as I have only shot there once. There are some spots up in the hill that the locals go to, decent areas to shoot but you get hassled by DFG during season. There's panoche on the west side but it's a long drive.

Thanks, I just didn't know if anything else opened up. I know there's a club near Lemoore also, but I've never been there. I have a place to shoot sometimes in the foothills, on private property, but I can't bring outsiders.

I just remembered there is the Avenal range. I haven't been there but the local .30 cal club shoots there and raves about. the membership is cheap I've been told. I plan on heading out there on of these days when I get a whole day to devote to shooting.

I drive from Visalia to shoot at the range in Lemoore. It's called the Lemoore Sportsmans Club. The dues are $60 per year & it is available 7 days a week. www.lemooresportsmansclub.com/

During the week, the place is usually empty except for the caretaker and his dog.

Welcome back to CA at the end of the month!

Edited to fix url.

The CA coast line is great. My wife and I had our wedding ceremony on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific and Pismo Beach. Beautiful place.

Hey if your going to the Morro Bay area I here there is a nice range over there too.

Yeah, the San Luis Obispo sportsmans club is a great range. With where it's at, it's usually really nice out there weather wise.
