Hap Baker

Has anyone been to Hap Baker recently? Just wondering if they are fully open again.

Two weeks ago I dropped off some old motor oil at the dump and the gate going down the road to the gun range was closed when it should’ve been open. Not sure if anyone has anything more recent to add.

What day and time were you there? Until March 31st they’re only open Fri-Sun 1000-1600. Annoyingly minimal hours of operation during the winter. That’s probably why they were not open when you visited the landfill. I read somewhere recently, forget where, that they’ve petitioned the County to revise the hours of operation to be open Mon-Sat year round (or something to that effect).

That seems like an incredibly bad idea, and likely to be very unpopular if it succeeds. Since they close at sunset, its nearly impossible for anyone who works weekdays to go during the week.

Why not Tue-Sun?

Oops. You’re right, my bad. I meant Tues-Sun. Still being closed on Monday for LEO range time. I mean, afterall somebody has to put all the bullet holes in the overhead sound & Rick O’Shea baffles.....

I can’t remember where I read that proposal, it was recent so I’ll try to fnd it and clarify it for us.

EDIT: Found the article, never mind - it was from May 2016. It referenced a proposal to be open to the public Mon & Tues as well during the Fall to handle the deer rifle sight-in crowds. Not sure what the heck I was remembering

Don't even try to go on a weekend from around the start of October to the end of gun season. 3+ hour waits for a lane are the norm. I've taken days off just to go there and sight in and it was packed even in the middle of the week right after lunch. They need to establish a time limit to keep things moving along.

They just (effective today) took steps to "solve" the afternoon/evening crowding problems.

The overhead bullet holes are somewhat typical of LEO ranges. They practice very close drills - like arms length, up close and personal distance - so the round that goes in the right place on the target might be heading at an angle upwards instead of level.

I was up there last Saturday and it was fully open and busy as usual. I may go again this coming weekend but I'll get there earlier next time. I only waited about an hour for a rifle lane. The pistol range was full, too.
