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.
Though Prado Olympic Shooting Park hosts law-enforcement-training programs, civilians of all skill levels can also practice on the venue?s outdoor shotgun field, pistol range, and rifle range. The park hosts regular public events?such as pistol and skeet shoots?and keeps an onsite pro shop.
Situated in the Prado Basin, Raahauge's Shooting Enterprises is bordered on all sides by national forest, hills, and mountains. On its widely varied ranges, visitors take aim at targets ranging from stationary bull's-eyes to airborne clay pigeons and other clay targets during Raahauge's Golf with a Shotgun exercise. Costumed members of the Cowboy Action Shooting Club add color to the proceedings once a month, when they meet to test their marksmanship amidst the frontier façades of an Old-West-themed rifle range.
The Hottest 100 Music Festival paints the weekend in shades of competitive euphony as up to 200 bands, artists, and DJs strive for their place in the top 100. For two days, the scenic grounds of Irvine Lake are saturated in 12 unrelenting hours of melody, as bands representing every genre and necktie technique trade barbed jabs and retorting riffs across eight stages. Headlining Saturday's stable of hungry rock hippos, electro hip-hop trio Hyper Crush exercises irrepressible crunkitude, and the mirror-mesmerizing posse of It Boys! taunts audiences by eating multiple servings of songs without gaining weight. Sunday's supernova includes the hardcore crew of Stick to Your Guns, the brawny pop-punk of A Static Lullaby, and a special set from noted headbangers Bleeding Through, whose thrash metal solicits whiplash and spare change to launder a load of black T-shirts.
Judged by any metric, Critical Paintball & Archery is something of a celebrity. The chromatic battle arena has been featured in magazines like Facefull, and Splat, and has even made a guest appearance on CSI: New York. Star roles aside, Critical Paintball & Archery is primarily a shop that gives paintball and archery enthusiasts everything they need to hit the battlefield or target practice lanes ? all with the comfort of air conditioning and certified instructors. The catalog's inventory is comprehensive, accommodating casual players and hardcore hobbyists alike with a meticulously curated selection of brands, gear, and apparel. Folks can order online, but Critical Paintball & Archery also maintains a showroom for shoppers who'd rather test the heft and balance of a paintball gun in their hand, or see if a helmet will accommodate the horn of their pet rescue unicorn. Though primarily a store, Critical Paintball & Archery occasionally acts as a school, with seminars and private lessons imparting the techniques of archery. Archery lessons are taught using recurve bows, a beginner-level bow which provides enough power and accuracy to train participants for the 77th Annual Hunger Games.
The staff maintains an outdoor range, which accommodates target shooting with handguns, shotguns, and rifles. Since it's a large and open area, the range also allows for different controlled scenarios, including shooting from a vehicle.
During handgun classes, the instructor can supply rental firearms of various calibers, including 9 mm, .22, or .380 ACP.
Handguns, shotguns, and automatic rifles. Todd Widick has mastered all of them over the years.

He also trains his students in specialty skills, such as low-light shooting.
