Big Bear Valley Sportsman's Club Shooting Range

Westy and I managed to sneak out for some bowfishing this past weekend at Big Bear Lake in SoCal. When the carp refused to come into the cold shallow water where we stood shaking like dogs passing a peach pit, we headed for the Big Bear Valley Sportsman's Club Shooting Range to reconnoiter.

The range has some history with the likes of John Wayne, Jeff Cooper, Jack Weaver (Weaver Stance fame) and others practicing their shooting when up in the high pines around the lake. We happened to bump into actor Christian Slater and his friends who were looking to rent some guns for some shooting fun. Unfortunately the range doesn't have any guns for rent and we didn't have any to lend them.

So if you're ever headed up to the mountains around Big Bear and want to throw some lead downrange or bust some clay targets there is a nice range just north of the lake at the Stanfield Cutoff. With all the famous folks running around the area you never know who you'll run in to.

Hi there,

I am with a new ammo retailer called I wanted to see if you ever did product reviews and if you'd be interested in doing one for me?

We just recently launched our re-designed site and we are really excited to spread the word about what we have in stock- our prices are pretty competitive. Basically I'd send you some free product in return for a brief review on your site.

Here are some of the reviews top bloggers have done for
Women of Caliber

If you're interested, please let me know calibers you can review and we can discuss the details.

Thank you for your time,
