A lifelong hunter and former police offer and firefighter, Ed Tubbs named his range after center mass, otherwise known as the middle of the target. "It came from how I learned to shoot," he told Danny Bernardini of the Reporter. "I'm old school. I learned to aim for center mass."

Tubbs and his team of experienced hunters and public-safety personnel impart their marksmen expertise on pupils at Center Mass Shooting Range. The facility encompasses three ranges that span eight 17-yard lanes and four 25-yard lanes, each regulated by strict safety rules. In addition to giving shooters a place to refine their gunmanship and say words like gunmanship, the range also hosts pistol training. To better serve their clients and the larger public, Center Mass offers discounted range rates to policemen, firemen, and the military and supports several wildlife-management organizations, including the Mule Deer Foundation.

Martinez Gun Club?which was founded in 1883?is a place of tradition. To wit, every Wednesday evening, parents and their kids flock to the club for Family Night. Everyone shoots a few clay pigeons, before they retire to the air-conditioned clubhouse, which features a wooden-beamed ceiling, brick fireplace, and flatscreen televisions. Here, Chef Mindy prepares a meal and bartenders serve drinks to the older crowd. In addition to these dinners, the club regularly hosts special shooting events on weekends.
