The Calguns Foundation is collaborating with the U.S. Forest Service to organize a clean-up of the “Glass Factory” gun range in the mountains above Santa Barbara.

Located on East Camino Cielo off Highway 154, the Glass Factory is a popular target-shooting area in the Los Padres National Forest.

The clean-up is scheduled for Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the range will be closed for the entire day.

Participants are encouraged to bring flat-blade shovels, wheelbarrows, plastic garbage bags, sunscreen, hats and gloves.

Prize drawings and a barbecue will be offered as an incentive for volunteers to join the effort to maintain the local gun range.

“If it rains Saturday, the clean-up will be postponed until the following weekend,” said Rick Helfrich of Goleta Valley Gun and Supply.

Glad to see them taking some action. That place is an absolute disaster area. It’s disheartening to see such a garbage pile littering our national forest.

True.  The Winchester Canyon Gun Club, by contrast, is quite tidy.  Gives a little credibility to the idea that people don’t respect what they get for free.

The Glass Factory is extremely unsafe. It’s surprising that no one has gotten hurt. No range control, you can’t hear a cease-fire, etc.

Of the times I have been there, we never added to what was already there. we just shot what was there already. Of the numerous times I have been there we were always the only ones there. for the comment on the cease fire…. Sucks you were there at the wrong time.
