Is it legal there? I see this thread which makes it seem questionable. :7:

Nice!! I love the open desert and I've been wanting to go shoot out in that area.

I will be out in the Apple Valley area off of Stoddard Wells Rd in a couple of weeks. I'll have to check that location out!!

Well everytime I go there are many shooters. East of the 15 looks like it's for offroaders. West of the Interstate just pick a spot. I usually go west about 1-2 miles. Just remember to pick up your mess:oji:

milotrain 03-28-2013 5:12 PM

The Zombie shoot is an annual must. If at all possible show up there. It's a great location, and a good place to keep shooting all year round. I've wanted to join in for a while.

What happened to the spot out by Rosamond? No one shoot there anymore?

After re-checking the map, I see the legal area on the west.

Going to Vegas in a week and my wife promised me we could stop for a few minutes at the crack of dawn to go through a couple magazines. I've been wanting to stop there and finally it's going to happen. With my luck at the tables, it should be the highlight of the trip!

SOUTHVNCH 04-06-2013 9:18 AM

For the mule canyon, Do you mean that we turn left at Calico rd, then right on Mule canyon road?

desertexplore 04-06-2013 2:14 PM

I hope everyone please remembers to pick up their spent brass after shooting. Please take care of the desert.

Is it here?

Hodge Rd, Barstow, CA 92311

challenger 04-09-2013 8:54 AM

For Hodge road shooters go back at least a mile before shooting. There used to be posted signs saying its a federal offense to shoot within a mile if an interstate.

Foresight88 04-09-2013 2:35 PM

Hey brother. Welcome to the world of shooting freely!

You can shoot in most BLM land. Google CA BLM land and you're set!

firemanjoe 04-09-2013 4:22 PM

+1 for hodge rd, it's great if your passing through, but if you're going to spend any length of time in the high desert area there are plenty of hidden gems of places to shoot.

It got so badly trashed that the property owner asked the sheriff to start running people off. No more shooting there :mad:
PICK UP AFTER YOURSELVES

4literranger485 07-17-2013 8:01 PM

^^ some idiots a couple years ago were "getting creative" and started a fire. There are plenty of spots around that area to shoot though. Invite a local! (wink)

NiMiK 07-29-2013 3:02 PM

I went to Hodge Rd for the first time last saturday since the kids were at grandma's and wife was in vegas. Did my first 400 yard shot on steel out there. FUN! Only thing I didnt like were broken glass and trash left on some berms by idiots. If you go there, please don't be an ahole and shoot your glass and trash. I want to be able to bring my 6 year old there and not worry about her having glass pieces go through her feet.

Steve_In_29 07-31-2013 11:56 AM

If you are looking for something more then a trashed desert area to shoot, join the 29 Palms Pistol & Rile Club ($60a yr).

I like going off stoddard wells rd.. West side and I go a few miles in.. Past 3-4 hills.. Gotta have a truck it's a bit rough but I've never seen anybody out there.. No shells, no trash. So let's keep it that way. I like to lay out a 20ft tarp.. And shoot on that.. Makes cleanup a breeze. And if you look hard you can reach out to 400 or so yards too.. Safely.

DesertWalker 07-26-2014 12:04 PM

Hodge Road,etc.
 
I am very happy a lot of these posts ask that we clean up after ourselves. I work in the desert, and there is too much trash already. So thanks to all of you!

I have been out to Hodge Road recently. It is definitely open on the West, and go out a mile or two, as others here have said. You can get a "Shooting Map" from San Bernardino County Special Services District. Just GOOGLE it. There is an office on 5th street, east of the 215.in San Bernardino. I have also heard Turners might have this same map.Happy shooting.

DavidR310 08-18-2014 5:40 PM

While this thread is good. It is completely in the wrong area.

My favorite desert to shoot has got to be boston cream pie. Cupcakes are pretty good to shoot at too. ZING

71MUSTY 08-28-2014 10:07 AM
