Did you check the rules? Angeles has the rules posted stating no rapid fire. Most ranges have the rules clearly posted as well as a no rapid fire policy.

Go to burro canyon and get yourself a tac range....They are located away from the regular ranges and you are pretty much left alone

Lytle Creek is still open??? I remember going there when I was a kid.
Do you still have to yell out SETTING UP TARGETS!!!.

I remember that place being a trash dump. People use to bring out all kinds of crap to shoot at (old tv's, appliances, refrigerators, propane tanks).

As for your bump firing. Yeah its cool to bump fire, but rules are rules. Common sense would tell you that bump firing isnt allowed at any public range unless you get a green light from the range master to do so.

like most of the doj's wording i think it's all subjective in the eye of the beholder, grossly negligent to me is swinging the gun in all directions screaming like a mad man in some unknown dialect.

if pointing a rifle downrange at the hip during open fire, useing a belt loop to hold your thumb against the trigger is considered grossly negligent by the DOJ.

then banning an H&K91 just because it looks evil when a M1A will put the same effect on the same target more accurately at a greater range (depending on model) is grossly negligent.

not flameing anyone just venting on the futility of these laws which im sure all of you can agree on

im sure the rules also dont say anything about shooting apples off your buddies head but you just dont do some things at a range....

burro canyon lets you shoot as fast as you want as long as its form a shoulder drawn weapon, although on weekdays they donn't have a range officer supervising so you can do pretty much anything you want except shoot other people :-)

Burro canyon still frowns on rapid-rapid firing... I got scolded for fanning a Ruger Mk1 once... Never done it again-

however, fingering my SKS, I've managed to pull some fast shots(3-4 rounds), and the ROs were ok with it as long as it's fired from the shoulder and not bumping from the hip.

Ya can at my range, Bishop Gun Club. Of course there is no RSO either...

I asked at Lyle Creek and the RO said that he would not have any problem with me bumpfiring, but they would prefer that I did not because they did not want newbies trying it and having an aciddent.:rolleyes:
Another time, I was bumpfiring at a private range off the 118 and the regulars all came over and told me I had an illegal machine gun. :eek: Once the process was demonstated to the group they asked that I not do it as the noise might scare their neighbors?? Unfortunately when on private property you must obey the rules even if they are not logical.

I've been asked at lytle creek to not bump from the hip but shoulder is okay. things might have changed since then though

In my experience, the ROs at Lytle Creek are open to just about any shooting scenario as long as safety is not compromised, although some may not agree that bumpfiring is unsafe. Last time I was there, a couple of buddies and I were rapid firing from the shoulder in unison and they didn't care. In fact, one time when the range was mostly empty, we were doing some practical shooting scenarios, and they were cool with it. If there is anything that may be perceived as sketchy at first glance, chances are, that if you notify them in advance, they aren't likely to frown on it. I'll take the ROs at Lytle Creek over the tightwads that run Angeles any day.

Should have checked with someone before pulling that stunt. Common sense.
