One of the shooting centers my husband has taken our kids to learn gun safety is Raahauge's Shooting Enterprises. A sanctioned gun safety course is required for a hunting license in California, and Raahauge's is in Corona, pretty nearby to our home area of Temecula and the surrounding areas of Murrieta, Lake Elsinore, and Menifee near Camp Pendleton. Corona is about a 40 minute drive north of Murrieta.
Here information about gun safety courses in our Inland Empire area:

Coincidentally, our kids will be doing the gun safety class this coming weekend, just in time for the oldest to catch the end of dove season with Dad. It all starts with safety, like Lenn says in her great post here:
TRAP SHOOTING AT BULL RUN SHOOTING CENTER IN CENTREVILLE VA, FAIRFAX COUNTY. YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN 4-H MEMBERS LEARNING TO ENJOY THE SPORT OF SHOOTING TRAP BIRDS.
Age is not much of a barrier to learning to shoot. It's amazing how quickly young men and women learn to handle a shotgun. Today at the Bull Run Shooting Center in Centreville, Virginia (Part of the Bull Run Regional Park) I had the pleasure of shooting with a group of young 4-H members. Joining these young men and women on the range and watching them enjoy the sport of trap shooting is fun and exciting. I see some future champions.
A WINNER! The young man shooter on the left was shooting for score. He needed 8 hits out of 25 to achieve his shotgun 4-H recognition. He shot 12 out of 25. Fabulous.
LENN WAS HER INSPIRATION! The young lady shooter on the right was at the range with a group of 4-H members a few months ago. She saw me shooting and declared "I want to learn to do that". She worked hard and shot a couple of birds, not bad for a young lady shooter of about 80 lbs.
HE'S KEEPING THAT SCORE SHEET. HE QUALIFIED AND THE SCORE SHEET IS VERIFICATION. He more than qualified. He needed 8 hits out of 25 birds and got 12 hits out of 25 birds. Excellent.
SMILES ALL AROUND were well deserved. The young shooter who "qualified" today with 12 hits has a long way to go to grow into that shooting jacket. However, he is already a good sport, a safe gun handler and knows how to work hard and achieve his goal.
Safety is very important on the range and these young shooters are learning well. Safety glasses, ear protectors are mandatory. No loaded guns until it's your turn to shoot. Stay on the station until the trapper calls for advancement. All lessons learned by these shooters today and they'll be safe and excited shooters.
Congratulations to the 4-H leader taking these youngsters out for the afternoon. There were actually about 10 in the group and they took turns shooting under his instruction which was patient but firm.
These young 4-H members were a pleasure to meet and watch.
