San Francisco Shooting Ranges

San Francisco, the City by the Bay, home to the Golden Gate bridge, and home to a number of San Francisco shooting ranges.

Now, keep in mind that some shooting ranges in San Francisco are clubs; that means membership is normally required, sometimes ahead of time, and sometimes with special rules and regulations. Call ahead and ask before you make the trip down; it will save you a lot of time and headache.

Calling ahead is a good idea in general to confirm range availability and times. There are also sometimes specific range rules, so its best to check. Indoor ranges are best suited towards pistol and small bore rifle, while outdoor ranges are best for rifle and shotgun shooting. Some sell targets and ammunition, or require you to buy theirs, others don't and you will need to bring your own. Always best to check first!

The only other thing to be aware of is state and local laws - but the ranges can tell you those. Oh; and if you're going to an outdoor range, check the weather. Its best not to get caught in a thunderstorm.

Ranges also tend to offer a variety of other services, like training and certifications. These can include free range time, so it can make a lot of sense to do the two at the same time and save yourself time and money.
