L.A. Area, 126 Route:

Just past Six Flags at Castaic Junction, you will head West on Interstate 126 and turn right onto “Main St.” in Piru (About 11 miles). You will stay on main street the entire time as you go through the city of Piru. You will go through a total of 3 stop signs. Your first stop sign will take you over some railroad tracks and into town. The second stop sign will be in the middle of town and the final stop sign will be just as you begin to head out of town. Continue out of town and after about 2 ½ miles keep your eyes on the right side of the road for our large sign (California Tactical Academy). Turn right here and onto the dirt road keeping to your left for 1 ½ miles and will come to our “Public range” located on the left side of the road.

L.A. Route Note: We have had many reports from our shooter’s coming up from L.A. that have advised us that, when using a GPS, the GPS will take you off this course and attempt to have you turn onto various roads prior to Main St. DON’T do it! You are being directed to take one of the many dirt roads that wind through the mountains mostly to nowhere or a locked road gate. This is oil and cattle country and simply the wrong way!

126 East Route:

From Santa Barbara, Ojai, Ventura etc., Take Interstate 126 East into the city of Piru turning left (North) onto Main Street. You will go through a total of 3 stop signs. Your first stop sign will take you over some railroad tracks and into town. The second stop sign will be in the middle of town and the final stop sign will be just as you begin to head out of town. Continue out of town and after about 2 ½ miles keep your eyes on the right side of the road for our large sign (California Tactical Academy). Turn right here and onto the dirt road keeping to your left for 1 ½ miles and will come to our “Public range” located on the left side of the road.

126 East Route Note: There are many “back” roads through Ventura County such as Balcom Canyon, Grimes Canyon, cutting over on Central into Saticoy etc., etc,. If you are familiar with these roads, they can save you a lot of time. i.e., from Camarillo: Take N. Lewis Road (34), turn right onto the 118 heading East turning left onto Grimes Canyon Rd. (23), then turn right on Broadway Rd. then left at the stop sign onto Grimes Canyon Rd. where it will take you to the city of Fillmore.
