View Full Version : First Rifle, Closest public land to shoot in?

06-04-2008, 10:43 PM
I bought a Sig 556 a few days ago, and since then I've been researching BLM, and forest lands, for target shooting.

I noticed lots of area's are shotgun only, and pretty far away.

As you could imagine, after 10 days I'd be pretty anxious to shoot it in the closest possible place.

I'll be picking up the rifle next Thursday.. from CWS in Highland. To my understanding the shooting area off the 330(1N09) is closed for the summer. And I believe that would of been the closest area.

I'd rather not go to a range and make a fool of myself.

From what I've gathered, there is an area just below Barstow that is open to all firearms. Right?

Anyone have any other suggestions???


Also I wanted to mention the great community resource you guys are hosting here.

Call BLM office and get a map, I believe target shooting is allowed North of Barstow, congrats on your new purchase
