    Will be in Folsom, Ca April 16 - 19. Any gun clubs close where I can possibly shoot a couple of rounds of trap?

    go up the hill on highway 50 past Cameron park and check out the El Dorado gun club, great people, great location, you will have fun. It about 20 min. out of
    Folsom. I believe they shoot trap at the Cordova gun club, which might be alittle closer depending, but they have gotten some pretty bad press on this site.

    The best place to shoot is Coon Creek (Tues,Thurs, Sat, Sun). It is about 30 mi. but I will be glad to give directions if you decide it fits your plans. The El Dorado Gun Club, Placerville, is closer but they only shoot Sun. A.M. and perhaps Wed. afternoon. Auburn has a nice club, but I don't know their limited hours.

    Sam,

    The the El Dorado Gun Club is about 20 minutes from Folsom. We shoot singles, doubles and handicap practice on Wednesday afternoons. Some of our regular shooters live in Folsom. Feel free to give me a call for more information and/or directions. Another nearby range is the Sac Valley Shooting Park: http://sacvalley.org/. I have never shot there.

    There are a few options available to you.

    Sacramento Valley Shooting Center
    http://www.sacvalley.org/SacVal/index.html

    Cordova Shooting Center
    http://www.cordovashootingcenter.com/

    El Dorado Rod & Gun Club
    http://www.eldoradorodandgun.com/

    Auburn Trap Club

    Coon Creek Trap & Skeet

    Yolo Sportman's Association
    http://www.yolosportsmens.org/

    There is also the Alta Mesa Gun Club but they're only open Monday night.

    If it was me I would try to get to the El Dorado Gun Club on wednesday. I'm a member there and they are really nice people. It's less than 30 minutes from Folsom.

    Plan B would be the Cordova Shooting Center, not the friendliest place in the world but when you need somewhere to shoot, beggars can't be choosers......again, probably 20 minutes from Folsom.

    Sac Valley will not be open during your window.

    Coon Creek is too far. Same with Auburn and Yolo. Too bad Sac Trap is done, that place was the bomb.
