What we're about

Mission Statement:

"The CA Bears Target Shooters is group dedicated to offering a safe, educational, and fun environment for target shooting enthusiasts to meet one another. It's members come from all walks of life and degrees of experience, yet treat one another with equal respect and tact. Interpersonal relationships extend beyond the online echelon, and are cultivated through group events like trainings, range trips, and social events alike."

Forums on the message board are open to those of you who are concerned about our second amendment right to bear arms and or questions about purchasing a firearm or even what is legal in California. I encourage you to use the message board frequently. I promise to do my best to keep this group safe and sane with an emphasis placed on gun safety.

For those who do not own a gun, we would be more than willing to help you find a firearm that is best suited for. Some ranges rent them. We will do our best to continually add articles and information to assist you in learning more about weapons, ammunitions, current laws, etc.

Not all meetups will be at a firing range. we too will plan social events in addition to shooting events so we can better get to know one another. Suggestions are always welcome. Please assure you fill out the profile questions in their entirety when applying for membership in this group.

Regards, Your organizers
