Welcome to the Westwood Gun Club

also known as the Al Hoop Range, located in beautiful Westwood, CA

Important update for 2020

*****CLEANUP DAY AND MEETING UPDATE, published May 28, 2020*****

The weather forecast for this Saturday’s May 30, cleanup day and

Fall Meeting shows rain on Friday night and steady rain for

Saturday. Therefore I have postponed until the following

Saturday, June 6. Cleanup will start at 8:00 am with meeting

to follow. The trap shoot scheduled for that day will take place

after the meeting. The sporting clay shoot will go on as scheduled

on Sunday, June 7.


The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult to make plans for starting our club activities this year. The club is open as usual for those wishing to use the ranges on their own. Please use whatever social distancing protocols are in effect at the time, as these will no doubt be changing.

Sporting clay shoot scheduled for May 31 is cancelled.  This will move the start of the shooting season into June. All this could, of course, be subject to change, so please check this website for updates. Thanks for your understanding during this difficult time.

- Ron Damsen, President

About Us

The Westwood Gun Club

 The Westwood Rifle and Pistol Club is located ½ mile west of the junction of Highways 147 and 36 down a dirt road about a mile. Each year we begin in late May and end in October. Here, trap, rifle, or sporting clays meets are held on either Wednesday evenings, Saturdays or Sundays. 

The Al Hoop Range is open to anyone who wants to shoot. The public can shoot rifle or pistols at targets anytime but must bring their own targets and remove them when done. The range is also used for pistol practice by law enforcement, hunter education courses, concealed carry permit classes, youth shoots, Boy Scout and church group shoots.  

Membership costs are $20 for Individual, $40 for Family.
