I have a friend just past there and was asking him about shooting out there... is bell mountain a common known location? If so I'll mention to him - anything specific to know about shooting there?

Well, according to the Apple Valley Muni code, it's illegal to shoot there, unless it's private property and your the owner, or have his permission.
So, if you chance it there's 4 possibilities.
1. No deputies drive by and check you out.
2. A deputy drives by and figures your not hurting anything, and nobody has complained about shooting, so he keeps on driving.
3. A deputy contacts you and tells you it's illegal to shoot there, and you have to leave.
4. A deputy contacts you, decides he's going to follow the letter of the law, and writes you a citation.

Me, I'd just drive 10 more minutes up the I-15 to the legal shooting areas, and enjoy the day.

Hodge Rd w/o the I-15 is a popular spot. Just make sure you go far enough west to not be on the private property around the radio towers. Usually a bit crowded there, but the farther west you go, the less crowded.
People shoot around the Calico area, and Ft. Irwin Rd. But basically, any where on public land within the target shooting area is OK. I'd try and find my own spot with no crowds.
