    My company is sending me to San Diego for a few months.
    Where's the best place for a visitor to shoot trap?

    Escondido Fish & Game in Escondido. You can shoot Tuesday mornings, Wednesday evenings until 9 and I believe Saturday evenings. I can meet you there on a Tuesday or Wednesday and give you the lay of the land.

    There is also Project 2000 (P2K) in El Cajon where they have 2 trap fields and they are open every day. Escondido is a private club, P2K is open to the public.

    I second Escondido Fish and Game. I shoot trap the first 3rd and 4th Saturdays of the month!

    Those places are good to shoot, but the BEST place is Redlands. It is about a 2 hour drive norh of town, up the 15 freeway. Go to their website and get directions.

    I second that vote for Redlands. The best place in Southern California by far.

    All - thanks very much.

    I will try all these places starting with Escondido Fish & Game in Escondido. I've never shot Olympic, but I'd love to try.

    pigkiller - if you can do it Wed evening, Mar 6. I'm up for it, assuming my gun gets to San Diego with me. What's a good time? I'm assuming the GPS in my rental car can get me there.

    In 2009 and 2010 I was working at Camp Pendleton.North of San Diego off I-5 at Oceanside. There was a range out there thay had a couple of fields.

    A local fellow that we hired and I became friends with took me out to Lake Wohlford a couple of times. We caught some pretty good stocker rainbows ou there. We also fished Lake Poway.
