Any muzzleloaders in San Diego CA area? Just got into muzzleloading.
Yep. I live in San Diego. I shoot at Rainbow Range up near Temecula.
Mainly my Lyman GPR and a couple Pedersoli muskets.
I have a number of C&B revolvers, but haven't shot any of them in a while.
What BP gun(s) are you staring with?
Hi. I shoot at South Bay Rod & Gun Club. They have a group there, but I didn't find them very warm. They were a bit clique-ish, so I just shoot at the regular range with everyone else. I shoot flint and cap, and revolvers too. My kids are into it, too!
I just shot at SBR&GC today. First timer, my first ML and first time shooting a ML. I loved it, not to say that I didn't have some newbie challenges. The range officer was great and I met a couple that are the regular ML folks and they were terrific. My encounter was favorable, maybe you caught someone on a bad day, we all have them.
I’m in San Diego and belong to SBR&GC and like it. I went to their monthly ML shoot last weekend and had a ball. Everyone seemed to be very friendly. Also, working on Escondido Fish and Game it’s closer for me than SBR&GC. Everyone at Escondido has been great, really nice facility, however the waiting list is pretty long to join, but I’m working on it and getting in line.
Crane Senior, I was at the SBR&GC on Sunday for the shoot as well. First time participating had a good time, saw lots of good shooters with some beautiful guns. I was at the Far East or right end of the firing line.
I think you and I were standing next to each other. If I’m right there was a guy with a new flintlock to your right at the end.
Yes, that was me. You gave me some good advice on loading. lol
I'm taking my grandson out this Sunday to shoot, he's excited so it should be fun.
This is total serendipity, very funny. Have a great time with your grandson, I’m working on mine. Has your grandson shot before or is this his first time?
It will be his first time shooting a ML.
I’m taking him to the local mountain man rendezvous out at Lake Morena in May.
You might check with the "Laguna Mountain Rendezvous" group. I too am new to the fur trade era (been shooting BP for some time in another circle). The wife and I have found them very friendly but have not been able to get that far south but for a couple times a year as we are from San Fernando Valley area. Up here we just go solo to Angel's Shooting Range when ever we can, not at all the same as a REAL range.
Check their site out; Rendezvous coming up!
Thanks for the info. Looks let a fun time.
I just went to SBR&GC and had a good time with some nice folks.
Only one issue, I drive a Corvette and did not know about the dirt road. Is there anywhere in SD that I can reach purely on pavement?
Escondido Fish & Game is private but has an open BP shoot the last Sunday of each month. Good people and fun as well. I’ve attended both South Bay and Escondido both great folk. Paved roads to Escondido but it’s an 18 month to join however that doesn’t prevent you from going to the open shoots. I belong to SBR&G.
