A recent Wednesday at 3:34 p.m.: Walter Biondi bought his first shotgun when he was 17 and shortly afterward headed to the Pacific Rod and Gun Club to start what has become a lifelong passion for skeet shooting and trapshooting.
“It didn’t take me long to become acquainted with the gun,” Biondi said.
Now at 93, he is the oldest member of San Francisco’s only trap and skeet shotgun shooting range. The range occupies 14 acres on the southwest edge of Lake Merced. The club is open Wednesdays and weekends, and there is rarely a day Biondi isn’t eager to be there.
