    I'm down here in Fresno. I get up to Merced every so often for work. One day we should put together a FTF member day at a range.

    What do you shoot bud? Where do you go to shoot? I go to barn wood once in awhile and Manteca Sportsmans club here and there. Used to go alot until my ammo stash got scary. And my other stuff I have I have to go to the mountains to shoot... Our stupid state frowns on us for having anything fun

    I usually shoot at The Range of Fresno Rifle and Pistol Club. I too am scary low on ammo reserves so I haven't been lately. At times I go to the old Sheriffs range by Bass Lake but not often. It can get crowded up there so o don't go that often.

    I was just at barn wood a few days ago picking up my Remington 870 express. My ammo is getting scary also. Scary to think we might not even get ammo if things continue the way they r going. I go to salida to shoot at the rifle range there and to the fishermen a club on highway 132 every once in a while. Most the time I go to my wife's uncles place and shoot on his land.

    I'm all for an ftf members day at the range trip. I was used to shooting at least twice a month. That was my escape from reality. No need for drugs or alcohol. Rounds down range and tight groups on target did the trick... Now I'm going through withdrawals. I'm down to 400 rounds of 40cal, 250 of 22lr, around 250 of 12 gauge and maybe 100 of 7.62. I always had over 1000 rounds of every caliber, 3000 of 22lr until the hoarders started making us real shooters lives miserable. I'm getting an itchy trigger finger. I hear dicks still sells ammo and prices aren't bad and they actually have a lot in stock but haven't been down there. And I didn't know there was a range in salida. I've been looking for a long gun range close to modesto for awhile without luck. Is the range in salida long gun friendly? Is it a typical 1 round per second rate of fire? Anyway I'm all for a get together. And if you guys have any off road only toys I'm definitely interested in a road trip. I have a lot of shooting buddies with such toys that must be used off road and we're always looking for more friends to go out and do what we love.

    Hey guys I am in Modesto. Long time shooter Just curious I know nobody's mentioned it but Modesto has a new indoor shooting range. so far I have no complaints been there a couple times. I also did not know there was a outdoor shooting range in salida any more info would be appreciated. I do shut up in the hills were we have metal targets set up all way up the hill at different ranges . the range in Modesto is California shooting sports. thanks for reading save your brass reload ammo since the government is trying to buy all the ammo so we can play lol sorry for getting political

    I'm in Hughson not far from Modesto. I have been thinking about going to that new range. I have driven by it several times but haven't stopped. I have heard its nice. Can I shoot rifles there or is it only handguns.

    It's only handguns no long rifles and They do have a limit on the size of gun but cannot recall what that was
