The staff at Iron Sights was fantastic. (Thanks to Aaron and Megan) Our instructors, Rocky and Heidi, were GREAT. Our class was extremely informative and fun at the same time. I strongly recommend their class! They are patient and took time with each of us in the class. I can't wait to go back!! Make time to visit Iron Sights!!

I visited with my boyfriend who always wanted to visit a shooting range. The staff were beyond helpful. I wasn't keen on taking part but they put me at ease. We both had a fantastic day out and will visit again when we are in the area.

On a whim, my grown daughter and I decided to try a shooting range while on vacation. The staff put us in contact with their instructor, Heidi and her husband Rocky, who were able to meet us the same day. We paid for an hour lesson but they spent 1 1/2 hours with us. They were thorough, encouraging, and a... More

I have been shooting at Iron Sights for a few years now. I prefer outdoor ranges, but they are few and far between in SoCal. The range itself is well maintained with two shooting areas; 25 yard and 15 yard. Great for pistol shooting, OK for rifle. Cost is reasonable, Staff is very helpful and friendly and they have a...

My 17 year old son wanted to shoot his uncle's big handgun so we went to Ironsides for the afternoon. Friendly staff who were kind but firm about range rules and remunding us of common gun range courtesy. Range was clean and roomy - we will definitely go again

Great time shooting with shotgun,rifle and pistols. It's my wife's first time there and she really enjoyed and would love to go back again. Staffs are really kind and helpful. They know their craft! We spent $100 in two hours that we were there, totally worth it! Highly recommended :)

Off the HWY 76 and near the Muni Airport this is easy to get to. No shotgun shooting here. But you can target rifles and hand guns. It has a small shot with ammo and some gun for sale. It does restrict the type of ammo you can use. So check with them first. friendly, good service and reasonably priced.... More

Back in the day my friends and I loved going to the local shooting range so it only made sense that for our reunion in California we did the same! The shooting range had the perfect atmosphere for us to not only enjoy ourselves but also comfortably talk and reconnect. It was conveniently located only 10 minutes away from where... More
