The targets vary:  clay pigeons, cardboard silhouettes, MGM steel reactive targets.

Each stage places the shooter in a setting that will require using one or more of the guns in a specific sequence.  These stages will be unlike anything you have shot before; some-times described as a “real life video game.”

California Shooting Arcade History

THREE GUN SHOOTING EVENTS

California Shooting Arcade was created in August 2015 after owner Bill Paganelli came back from MGM Targets Sponsored IRONMAN 3 Gun Event in Parma, Idaho.  Bill was determined to bring the sport of 3 Gun to California and has done so with the help of his friends who work as Range Safety Officers at all of the matches.

 

 Bill Paganelli is a Paramedic in Alameda County working on the ambulance.  He has ISTM training, NRA Certification as an instructor and Range Officer training from 3 Gun Nation.  He is also an avid firearms enthusiast.
