The last target-shooting area open free to the public in the Saugus district of Angeles National Forest closed Wednesday, a victim of high maintenance costs brought about by the illegal acts of some of its users. Jim McGauley, a U.S. Forest Service district assistant recreation officer, said the Dry Gulch shooting range in recent years had been turned into a dumping ground by shooters who brought everything from mannequins to television sets to the area to use for target practice.

A man shot himself in the head with a borrowed handgun at a Los Angeles shooting range, and coroner's investigators believe it was suicide, officials said Sunday. Demetrio Ulloa Jr., 29, of Los Angeles fatally shot himself with a .45-caliber handgun about 6 p.m. Saturday at the Los Angeles Gun Club at 1375 E. 6th St., L.A. County Department of Coroner Lt. Larry Dietz said. Ulloa was pronounced dead at the scene, Dietz said. “He entered the gun club alone and without a gun of his own,” Los Angeles Police Department Cmdr.

Re "Homes on the Range," Nov. 19. I would wager that the shooting range was in place before these complainers moved in. What did they expect? If they did not want the noise, they should not have moved there. There are a lot of other places to live in Ventura. Closing or moving the range makes no more sense than closing or moving Highway 101 because there is traffic noise. Is it possible that the property values were lower because of the range and these people would like to reap a windfall by closing it?

Deputies arrested three men in the Antelope Valley and discovered an underground bunker, a shooting range, firearms and white supremacist paraphernalia on the property, law enforcement officials said Tuesday night. The weapons, some of them allegedly stolen, included six pistols and 11 rifles, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said. Detectives also recovered hundreds of rounds of ammunition and dozens of magazines, some of which were made to hold high-powered bullets.

The U.S. Forest Service is soliciting public comment on a proposal to allow gun enthusiasts to expand a shooting range in a remote canyon area in Los Padres National Forest. Prior to renewing the Ojai Valley Gun Club's current permit to use a 57-acre range off Rose Valley Road, the Forest Service plans to do an environmental impact report.

A discussion of options for the city's unsettled shooting range has been rescheduled for this Monday's City Council meeting. About a dozen concerned residents, mostly local National Rifle Assn. members, waited for 4 1/2 hours at last week's council meeting while council members discussed another issue. The council apologized to the audience, but adjourned the meeting at 11:30 p.m. rather than start the range talks then. The Huntington Beach Police Officers Assn.

The lower part of his left leg can serve as an inspiration for Dennis Rodman's hairdresser--"an ankle that looks like a rainbow, with all those colors," Coach Del Harris said--but Travis Knight plays on. Actually, he does more than that.

Darren Collison doesn't surprise himself a lot. He expected to step immediately into the UCLA point guard job vacated by Jordan Farmar and run the Bruins. He expected to be the kind of harassing defender that makes opposing coaches yell at the game film beforehand and congratulate Collison afterward on his long arms and active defensive presence. Collison did not, however, expect to be leading the Pacific 10 Conference in three-point shooting percentage in league games.

City officials say they will push ahead with plans to clean up a contaminated shooting range near Horseshoe Lake. State approval is expected in February or March for the $1.6-million project, which is to be completed by May, according to the city's consulting firm, EMKO of El Dorado Hills. Soil surrounding the shooting range is contaminated with lead and other toxic residue from shattered trap targets, analysts say.

Just in time for prime shopping season, San Diego's longtime police station has been reborn as an upscall mall known as the Headquarters at Seaport District. It opened Nov. 18 near the downtown waterfront. The complex, a mix of Spanish and Mission Revival styles, was built in 1939 with a jail, five courtrooms, an indoor shooting range, a law library and a big garage. The police moved out in the late 1980s, and the site stood idle for years while the tourists flocked to the tourist-friendly Seaport Village shopping area next door.

Plaintiff Mel Bernstein and his daughter have filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Colorado alleging that Discovery and Anthropic Productions failed to take adequate precautions to prevent the death of Terry Flanell, Bernstein's wife.

OAKLAND - The doors opened near the end of the Lakers' shoot-around, revealing the surprise of the day: Dwight Howard shooting mid-range jumpers. From 14 feet, 16, and a few from 18 feet. He needs to keep working on it. His 16-foot bank shot was too hard off the backboard early in Monday's game against Golden State. His 15-footer from the left elbow was way off the mark a minute later. He finished with 11 points on four-for-eight shooting in the Lakers' 109-103 loss. "We want to just expand his game all over," Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said beforehand.

DEER TRAIL, Colo. -- When Glenn Rotkovich reviewed the application from an Aurora, Colo., resident to become a member of the shooting range he runs out on the remote prairies east of town, he made a routine telephone call to invite the applicant for a personal orientation. But what he heard was anything but routine, he said of the June call. The applicant was James Holmes -- a name that didn't ring any bells, since it was weeks before the theater shooting in Aurora. But the message on Holmes' answering machine unsettled Rotkovich.

Barley Pop Bill showed no mercy. Those outlaws were fixing to steal his beer, and he went vigilante, blasting away with his double-barreled shotgun. Not satisfied, he drew his twin Ruger Old Army revolvers and riddled the outlaws with lead. As the smoke cleared, he smiled. Weren't nobody in Orefield, Pa., who'd be taking that brew bucket. Most friends call him Dale Green. Most people also pass their weekends in more sedate pursuits. But Green was spending his Sunday here at Guthsville Rod & Gun Club in eastern Pennsylvania, dressed from head to toe as a gunslinger of the Old West, sharing pistol smoke with 50 others doing exactly the same thing.

I come from a country that has been at war for as long as I've been alive, but I had never touched a gun until I came to Los Angeles. As a 30-year-old Afghan, I'd seen plenty of guns: the Soviet soldiers with their AK-47s, the nervous American kids pointing their weapons at you, ready to shoot, thinking everyone around them is a bomber. But here in Los Angeles, visiting on a five-month journalism fellowship, I was the one doing the shooting. For fun! America, I discovered, is a land of freedom.

The scheduled auction of a handwritten account by Sirhan Sirhan of his actions before the 1968 assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was blocked Tuesday by the convicted killer's attorney. Lawyer William Pepper said the purported description of Sirhan's visit to the Ambassador Hotel where Kennedy was gunned down may be "significant evidence" in an ongoing effort to win parole for the Pleasant Valley State Prison inmate, now 67. The online auction of the documents, written on a yellow legal pad and accompanied by a sketch that depicts areas of the Los Angeles hotel that Sirhan walked through, had been planned for Tuesday afternoon.
