i would love to do oak tree on a friday, i doubt we would get much of a turn out. the weekend is better for most. i am ok with 100 yards. at that distance i might hit something. if we could get 20 people with maybe 50 Mosins on the firing line that would be unreal. :D maybe we can have a Wendex cleaning party and pass around the vodka. :lol: :lol:

OK I just got off the phone with the Angeles Shooting Range, while they don't have all the amenities that Oaktree does they do offer a long range rifle range.
Angeles Shooting Range
The fees are going to be 150.00 for the whole day or 75.00 for half day. +12 per shooter for insurance. We need a certified instructor so either we provide one or it's $16.00 per hour.

The rifle range looks impressive however

They don't allow steel.. BUT the rifle range does go out to 600 yards.

I just got back from shooting for several hours at Oak Tree. It's a GREAT range with a very friendly staff. I had no problem shooting my surplus ammo. In fact, no one even asked or checked to see what I was using. I highly recommend this place to anyone, even if it is only out to 100 yards. I personally was only shooting at the 50 yard mark because I didn't have a spotting scope to check where I was hitting. They had a mixture of everything from .22 to .50 BMG on the range. I can't tell you how happy I am to have a place so close to my house that I can shoot and enjoy some old military guns.

Here's what any person should bring to this range -

1. Rifle
2. All the necessary safety gear - eyes, ears, etc.
3. Water, lots of it. It's a covered area, but the sun still gets through and bakes you a bit. That's one way to get the cosmo off the stock of these old guns!
4. A small towel to wipe all the melting cosmo off.
5. Sunscreen if you are shooting during the day. You face the range almost due west.
6. Shooting rest or sandbag if you plan to sit down (they have none available)
7. Spotting scope
8. Your own targets unless you want to buy theirs. They have their own stands and backs.
9. Duct tape and/or a staple gun to pin the targets on the backs. Trust me, have one or the other. They had masking tape that didn't like to hold very well
10. Other targets of interest if you have them. They shot an exploding target with the .50 BMG, so I can't imagine they would have a problem with some water jugs, bowling pins, fruit, etc. I didn't ask this question to the RSO, so be prepared with paper targets just in case.
11. LOTS of ammo. SURPLUS IS ALLOWED! Face it, you are going to stay there for more than an hour. Your arm can take it!
12. Optional - a hand gun to use at the steel pistol range or any of their bays. Your $20 range fee allows you full use of that as well.

I thought the biggest caliber allowed in Cali was .416.

If you owned the .50 before the ban, you can still own and use it. There are just no new sales or imports.

That is one hell of a thud when it goes off. They warned everyone when it was hot. Although I have to say the Mosin was a good head turner as well. :)

Great idea for a gathering. Perhaps in the future we could do a non range shoot out in the scrub between S.D. and L.A. and truck pool to the location?
