Welcome to the El Dorado Gun Club website.
The El Dorado Gun Club is an all volunteer organization. All of our Range Safety Officers volunteer their time and knowledge in support of the club.
Range hours differ from day to day so you must view the club calendar to see the hours of operation for the day you are interested in.
Law Enforcement only days at the rifle and pistol range are every Tuesday, two Wednesday’s and two Monday's a month.
At this time we do not have rental firearms. Ammunition sales are only available at the trap range. You must supply your own firearms and ammunition at the Rifle / Pistol range.
W. John Spencer
It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that one of
our own, W. John Spencer died in a plane accident on
Tuesday September 5th at approximately 11 a.m. while
transporting a patient and her mother to Palo Alto for
medical care. (The two passengers are recovering from
the crash.) John was a volunteer with Angel Flight when
the plane he was flying crashed on approach. John began
volunteering with the organization in 2014 and served
more than 75 families with 125 flights.
John was a lifelong member of the El Dorado Gun Club,
and was active in various duties within the organization.
John was a Range Safety Officer, as well as the main
communication catalyst with the entire club by maintaining
the website, sending out monthly newsletters, and keeping our calendar up to date.
Our deepest condolences go out to his entire family! I have reached out to Mrs. Grace Spencer and she has informed me that her daughter will be emailing information on funeral services as soon as they become available. Anyone interested in attending please contact me at (530) 409-3006 or email@example.com!
Thank you John for your services to our club, but above all, your services to our great country! May God hold you in the palm of his hand! R.I.P.

Environmental Trust Account
The El Dorado Gun Club is establishing a trust account: “Environmental Trust” account in the amount of $10,000. There is an organization out there that is looking to close down gun clubs in California. In an effort to be pro-active, the officers and Board of Directors have retained a lawyer that has been dealing with this sort of investigation. We are working closely with NRA representatives, lawyers and Environmental Specialists to do whatever we need to do to keep our gun club open and free of potential closure. Your donation of $5, $10, $15 or $20 can be a huge help to keep our club open. Thank you!
Feb 12, 2018: El Dorado Gun Club will transfer 5% of gross range receipts to to the Environmental Trust Account on a monthly basis.
