Action Revolver and Rimfire Club
Has shooting by yourself lost its thrill? . . .
Welcome to the home page of the California Wheel Burners. We are an active ICORE affiliated revolver and rimfire shooting club that hold monthly events at the Wes Thompson ranges in Piru. Please click through the menu above to learn more about Wheel Burners and the shooting sports we offer. If you have further questions, contact one of our officers via email or use the Contact Us form.
Club events are open to members and guests. First time guest shooters are welcome but will need to become members to continue participating in club events. Loaner gear and guns can be available if you need them. Our informal matches are strictly for fun and personal satisfaction. We're a relaxed and sociable group and always happy to welcome a new shooter!
Forecast rain cancels this match. If your 2nd Saturday is available for shooting consider the Revolver match as discussed below. It's called a revolver match because it's run under ICORE not because it's revolvers only. The ICORE rules dictate such things as target types and scoring. A fun match to shoot using whatever type equipment you prefer with the exception of centerfire rifle.
Our normal 2nd Saturday revolver match. Five diverse stages. Open to all who wish to attend. Centerfire pistols are also welcome. Cost is $20 for members, $25 guests. Please see the note below regarding membership information. First time attendees shoot for only $10. There's a ton of introductory information on our New Shooter Info and Revolver Match Info pages. Standard start time is 9:00AM, please arrive a little early and help complete setup. If you don't have everything required we can arrange to share.
Wheel Burners members are entitled to use our ranges and equipment at any time, but if you come and shoot you are obligated to pay the daily use fee just like our club does for our matches. If you shoot on a non-match day, please stop at the rifle range and sign the "Private Club" sheet and leave the money ($10 per shooter) in the drawer. Before leaving the Wheel Burners range, please return all targets back to their original location and lay steel down flat. Steel targets that are left standing can become a tempting target to rifle shooters outside our range. Once punctured or dented by a rifle caliber, the steel can't be used for handgun events. Remember, no centerfire rifles are allowed on the Wheel Burners range because we face south toward Route 126. We are now required by our range lease to be proactive in raking up expended brass and lead to prevent migration to the creek bed. Buckets are being provided to collect range brass for recycling. Please place all empty water bottles and other trash in a container, or better yet, take it away from the range because if you leave it, then someone else has to handle it.
