About Us

Many folks have more than a passing interest in firearms and shooting sports yet feel uncomfortable expressing that interest in the current political environment. Additionally, many experienced shooters are looking for a welcoming community of like-minded enthusiasts who can add much needed camaraderie and fun to the routine shooting experience. Bullets & Bagels was founded in Orange County in 2013 to provide a unique, supportive multifaceted venue to address these desires.

Bullets & Bagels hosts monthly recreational shooting events at various ranges in Southern California. Most events are hosted at indoor shooting ranges early on Sunday mornings, but two annual events are full-day outdoor experiences. In addition to supervised target shooting, we always feature guest speakers and vendors from various firearms-related industries, who showcase their products and services to our attendees. We also provide food, beverages and time to socialize and network.

The guest speakers are usually law enforcement, emergency medical professionals, intelligence agents, legal experts, religious scholars, industry vendors or military figures. Topics in the past have included firearm laws in California, obtaining a CCW permit, home firearm maintenance and storage, current and future operational status of the U.S. Navy Seals, flight operations of Huey Helicopters during the Vietnam War and an analysis of the Old Testament view of self-defense.

Come join our growing crowd and have a great time noshing, networking, and shooting. See you on the range!
