We're meeting up with some friends from New York, at their relatives' house in Huntington Beach. I would like to introduce them and their teenagers to sporting clays. What is the closest sporting clays facility to Huntinton Beach? I'm not very familiar with the L.A. area.

I used to live out in Cerrito's and this is the one I would suggest to you. http://www.raahauges.com

It's out there near Norco/ Corona area. about a 45 min drive for you.

Triple B's in Rosemead is closer. There's also Moore-n-Moore out in Tujunga.

Any way you look at it it's going to be a drive from Huntington Beach.

Triple B's is off of the 60 freeway and Rosemead Blvd. That is inbetween the 710 and the 605 freeways, closer to the 605. If you decide to go to Triple B's, let me know :)

I've really enjoyed Oak Tree.

Their Sporting clays are up in a beautiful rocky, hilly region a mile long. (see photo above)

They drop you off with an ATV and pick you up when you call.

Worth the effort.

Enjoy, Roger.

Thanks for the tips .. I usually go to southern California about once a year. I've checked out all these places on the web and would like to eventually shoot at all of them. Hopefully, it won't take more than a couple of years to pay visits to all. It looks like this year, I may get two trips into my plans.

+1 for the Oak Tree Gun Club. I've shot there many times, but only trap and skeet. Still it's a wonderfully nice facility.

Zeede ... I read something today that stated that all first time shooters at Triple B are required to take a quiz ... not saying that this it is bad thing, but it is also, not something that I want to impose on 3-6 first time shooters

Is this requirement a fact? Our trip is going to take place in April and I'd like to work out the details before we head south

The quiz is not that long, and is common sense. Questions like, "The action on the gun should be open and empty at all times, except when it is your turn to shoot. True or False"

The only questions new people might not know is the one about whether #7 1/2 through #9 are the only allowable shot sizes (True or False) and whether it's okay to share guns in Skeet and Sporting Clays (True or False) and in Trap and 5 Stand (True or False).

When I took my employees there, I grabbed as many copies of the disclosure/test as I needed, and then walked them through and explained each question over lunch. One of the gals I brought had never shot a gun before, ever, so it worked out well. Got some food in our bellies, and I had plenty of time to explain gun safety and what each question meant.

I've never thought about these questions before. I think both are true, is that right?

I couldn't help but to be curious .. to me, it is obvious that you could share a gun at skeet or sporting clays ... but I have also passed a gun, back and forth in trap with no apparent negative consequence .. what is the preferred answer regarding sharing a gun at trap or 5 stand

The answer they're looking for is FALSE for Trap and 5 Stand. I've seen people do it, but it was a dad standing inbetween his two kids and passing it. I don't think it's a good idea, you might drop the gun, and it's more movement than there needs to be on the line.

Some 5 Stand setups have the five stations farther apart than in trap. You can't just lean over and pass the gun.

Here's some shots from Station One at OAK TREE GUN CLUB Sporting clays near LA.

I took them with my camera-phone.

Not all the stations have all this 'deck-like' build out. Only a couple.
It really is a walk in the mountains. Very nice.
I was just there in December again.

Enjoy, Roger.

I have heard many good things about Oak Tree Gun Club, and will be meeting up w/ Rastoff to do some shooting there, but it's over an hour away from my house, whereas Triple B's is about 15 minutes away. With traffic I can still use surface streets to reach Triple B's in 20 minutes, Oak Tree could be almost two hours if traffic is bad enough.

Oak Tree looked really appealing to me ... how far, time wise, is it located after one bottoms out coming down from the Tehachapi's?

Hmmm, exactly which route are you taking? From Mojave you're looking at a little more than an hour. You can use MapQuest to figure your own route using this address:

Oak Tree Gun Club
23121 Coltrane Avenue
Newhall, CA 91321

There are also directions on their site: Oak Tree Gun Club

Driving from the Bay Area down I5 and over the Grapevine

Yes, it's that one after Tehachapi. But aren't you out-of-town friends going to be staying in Huntington Beach? Newhall is REALLY, REALLY freaking far from Huntington Beach.

Um...what? It's 60 miles from Huntington Beach to Newhall.

Of course you would have to go up the 405 and that's a 3 hour drive on any normal day. :wink:

Bakersfield is also about 60 miles from Newhall. So, Goater, the answer to your question is that it's about an hour.
