The Angels Gun Club, established in 1947 by WW2 veterans as a community-based organization that provides a safe location for marksmanship proficiency. For seventy-five years, the Angels Gun Club has been enjoyed by thousands of members of the community.

The Angels Gun Club is under attack. Another lawsuit from a former member, Larry Sarkis (resident of Hawaii), has been recently filed. Mr. Sarkis was removed from membership legally because he violated membership rules and initiated litigation in 2014 which was settled. Now he is alleging the Angels Gun Club failed to comply with the terms of the initial agreement.

This new attack threatens the very existence of the Angels Gun Club, the only recognized legal shooting facility in Calaveras County. The future of our facility, that generations have used and enjoyed, is now in jeopardy.

The Officers and Directors are vigorously defending against this attack. We are inviting our community to support the members of the Angels Gun Club to defeat this unwarranted attack.

Metal targets and steel ammunition are prohibited on the pistol and rifle ranges. Anyone caught using metal targets will be asked to leave the property and will be in violation of safety rules and fire rules and will be referred to the Board of Directors. Shooters shall ONLY shoot towards the target backstops and not toward any other direction adjacent to the gun club property.
