Booge Mercer started small, but she had a vision. Launching Oak Tree Gun Club in 1973 with just six fields, a trailer, and two outhouses, she steadily expanded the private shooting club into a public range. Soon, Charlton Heston and Steven Spielberg were dropping by. When Mercer passed in 1993, James Mitchell purchased the club and resumed Mercer?s vision. Today, Oak Tree Gun Club continues to draw outdoorsmen under the ownership of James' daughters, Betsy and Katie. The club?s facilities have even provided filming locations for television shows such as Entourage and NCIS. Those facilities have grown to include the Oak Tree Bar & Grill, a pro shop, and an archery field with 3D targets.

When it's not being used as a member's lounge due to its flashy flat-screen TVs and comfy chairs, Island View Enterprises' classroom accommodates beginners and amateurs looking to enrich their shooting prowess and firearm safety skills. During classes, expert instructors imbue pupils with gun maintenance knowledge and basic and intermediate shooting techniques, which they can then practice at Island View Enterprise's 55-foot indoor range. They also entice guests to become regulars with range memberships that grant free all-day passes, gun rentals, and lane reservation privileges, as well as a newly remodeled pro-shop that stays stocked with new and used brand-name firearms, as well as ammo, cleaning supplies, and strangely, baseballs signed by pro-golfers.

Triple B Clays throws more targets than any other club in the U.S. Yet that impressive figure is nothing when compared to the number of clay pigeons that have taken flight on their fields over the past quarter of a century. Over those decades, Triple B Clays has also assembled a team of certified instructors, who work with students of various ages and skill levels.

Her crosshairs sweep from left to right as she peers over the edge of the plywood wall; seeing that the coast is clear, she motions to her comrades, who usher their charge through as swiftly as possible, ready to take a shot if needed. These aren't real bodyguards, nor do they play them on TV. This game is called VIP, one of 15 variations players can engage in at the indoor field of Patriot Airsoft. As teams navigate a post-apocalyptic arena, littered with abandoned cars, makeshift bunkers, and empty barrels, they engage in friendly battle, firing low-impact BBs from their realistic-looking airsoft weapons. Guests age 10 and older can play, as long as they're wearing closed-toe shoes and leave their riot gear at home.

Steve Ellis and Ken Lindsay have traveled far and wide to hone their fly-fishing skills—they bring knowledge gained in Belize, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, and several US states to their Van Nuys fly-fishing shop, Fishermen’s Spot. For the past four decades, the shop has stocked high-quality fishing gear from makers such as Sage, Simms, Winston, and Abel, as well as vintage equipment such as bamboo rods and ancient flies that still haven't evolved wings. To complement these wares, the shop offers classes that help students master fly-fishing basics, such as casting, selecting tackle and flies, and tying knots.
