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.
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.
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.
On Redlands Shooting Park's nine regulation trap fields, bullets chase clay pigeons flung from machines with voice-release technology. Elsewhere on the grounds, customers take aim on four regulation skeet fields and navigate 10 challenging stations on a sporting-clays course. Along with these open-shooting sessions, Redlands Shooting Park hosts numerous events throughout the year, including ATA-registered trap shoots, NSSA-registered skeet shoots, and leagues for trap and skeet. After a session on the fields or a trek through the course, visitors can retire to the clubhouse or restock their reserves of ammo, apparel, or rental shotguns at the pro shop.
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. Before solidifying his current role as Gunshots Firearms Training's resident instructor, Mr. Widick served six years with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. He holds several certifications from the NRA and California Department of Justice—all of which come in handy during his group and private firearms lessons. He also trains his students in specialty skills, such as low-light shooting.
