SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — A San Francisco gun club, one of the Bay Area’s oldest, is in danger of being shut down by the city. But there is hope however that the growing number of members—including many from the high-tech community who are just discovering the sport—will help keep the club open.
While the sound of shotgun blasts aren’t typically associated with San Francisco, it’s been a noise commonly heard at the Pacific Rod and Gun Club near Lake Merced for nearly 90 years.
“The club has been here since 1928. As we understand it, it’s the second oldest trap and skeet club in the country,” board member Michael Emery said.
Emery said their membership has actually been growing recently, with younger tech workers getting into the sport of shooting.
