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.
Since 1923, the staff at P2K Range have helped their clients become more responsible, accurate marksmen. The company’s two ranges include a 100-yard climate-controlled indoor range and an outdoor range where sportsmen can shoot trap and five-stand sporting clays. P2K’s team works with Practical Defense Systems to offer gun training that covers safe handling of shotguns, handguns, and rifles for everyday citizens and law-enforcement officials alike. Classes cover topics such as hunters’ safety, women’s self-defense, and what it means when a gun makes a coughing sound.
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 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.
