Can someone recommend a good pistol and rifle shooting range in the Bay area with arms rental available, and foreign passports are accepted. Also US Citizen or Green Card is not a requirement.

      Maybe get out from in front of your computer once in a while? There are actually several very good indoor and outdoor ranges in the Bay Area.

      I'm in Texas. I can use my backyard as a range, and often do :)

    Jackson Arms in SSF will do it with any legal identification and a short training course

      Very good guys and girls there too. Very knowledgeable and willing to train novices as necessary to be safe. Same is true at most ranges but I’ve always particularly felt comfortable there.

    Hi, I own multiple firearms with a green card in San Francisco.

    There is basically three types of ranges:

    1) For pistols and small caliber rifles (toys) (9mm, 45acp, 22) I recommend Target Masters in Milpitas. Wednesdays evening it's super cheap.

    2) For Shotguns I like "Coyote Valley Sporting Clays", South of San Jose.

    3) For longer distance rifles and bigger calibers, without being a member you can do 100m at Richmond Rod & Gun Club. If you ever become a member you can do 200m in Richmond and up to 1000m in Sacramento.

    If you are renting, you must go with other people. You should call about the visa/GC, they change the rules all the time.

    I strongly suggest you buy a cheap shotgun for $200 and a cheap 22lr rifle for $450. It's super easy to do the paperwork and one you show up at the range with your own stuff you "are in". Also looks cool as fuck hanging from your wall.

    To buy, just show up at Dicks Sporting Goods with your Green Card, California Driver's License, and a couple of recent utility bills.

    No long guns and not sure about the foreign passport part. That might not be allowed

    Be sure to go there with someone else.
    They don't rent if you are alone.
