View Full Version : Southern California Benchrest Shooting

11-22-2009, 11:44 PM
Hey gang, I'm trying to find a place to shoot benchrest in Southern California. In live in San Bernardino County. I am new to benchrest, but used to shoot at the San Gabriel Valley Gun Club (SGVGC) in fish canyon (Duarte, CA) in the mid 1990s. Sadly, that range has been closed for three years now. I just recently found out that a benchrest club used to meet at the SGVGC -- the San Gabriel Valley Benchrest Shooters. Was that club disbanded when the range closed? If not, does it now meet in another location? Are there any other locations in Southern California where benchrest matches are conducted and a newbie can learn the sport? Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

At this time your closes places to shoot benchrest are Visalia or Phoenix. Angeles Shooting Range is currently getting approvals from the county to put in another range at their facility that can use for benchrest matches. Hopefully we will be able to resume monthly matches next year sometime.

Steve Perry will be the match director if you have any other questions you can reach him at the e-mail below.
