Unfortunately, Chabot Gun Club’s lease was not renewed by the East Bay Regional Park District and the marksmanship range is now permanently closed. We thank all of our tens of thousands of patrons for your support for more than fifty years at this important facility. There are no plans to open up at another location at this time, although we still are open to suggestions.

****Everyone must be at Range by 9:00 for the safety briefing. Latecomers will be turned away. Because of limited space and equipment, a maximum of 17 shooters can be accommodated.*****
Light Rifle is designed to incorporate safety and marksmanship opportunities for individual shooters and small groups. At each morning session we will host basic firearms safety orientation with .22 caliber rifles, followed by 50 shots of informal target practice.
Shooters are invited to bring their own .22 rifles or use ours. Scopes or iron sights are welcome. Also, we encourage people to bring their own eye protection if possible. Eye protection is for sale for $3.25. We will provide ear protection as needed.
Light Rifle fits in between the classic Juniors program with its Olympic style discipline of shooting and SmallBore, with its more casual (but just as safe!) approach.
To obtain more detailed information, please call the Range Office (510) 569-0213.
