Any good shooting spots around pala casino? I'm not asking for your exact location of your slice of heaven but can someone give me directions from the casino to a decent spot to pop some rounds off?

Having a kind of family reunion over there at the end of the month and want to go out with my cousin (guy who got me into guns) out and shoot we havnt seen each other for a few years and would like to get a day out with just the boys.

Again don't need exact location just pointed in the right direction to not get in any legal trouble shooting on private property or tribal grounds or something like that.

Someone gave me a BLM map site thing but it just looked like a map to me I didn't understand how that showed me and BLM shooting spots.


Feel free to PM me if you don't want the spot over run. I'm just goin there for a day or 2 and will clean up and respect your spot like I would want people to respect my get away.

Be shooting mostly shotguns and the AR and maybe some 700 action if the spot allows it. If not I'll live.

It would really be appreciated and mean a lot to me to be able to take my cousin out again.

You know there's a 975 yard range right across the road from the casino, right?

Make sure you do not end up on the Pala Indian Reservation.
If you do, you will get hassled by the Pala Tribal Security Department.

The only authorized shooting area on the Pala Indian Reservation is the Pala Shooting Range (http://www.ncsapala.com/).
You need to be a member to use the range.
You can download the application from their website and turn it in at the range.
Current membership fee = $65 a year.
They hold cowboy action shooting, three-gun and ISPC matches on the range.

We like being in the desert just so we can relax and do our own thing and not have range rules (while still being safe and smart about it) and do our own thing and mess around freely with out having to be monitored 24/7 and on our best behavior. Just being able to be our selfs I can't stand range rules although I completely understand and love that they are in place for the idiots out there. And like you mentioned it's free to shoot out there.

I suggest directly at any of the band of pala indians buildings.

I got kicked out of nate harrison and also a locals only spot inside the boundaries of the reservation. Still pretty pissed bout it.

Closest spot is either further east down the 76 or further north up the 15.

if you want to be in the desert, head about 60 or so more miles east

If you're still asking about the Pala/Pauma area, there is no other place to shoot out there unless you have connections. All you can do is take a trail and find a remote spot and shoot at your own peril. Not suggested.
