There is an area off of Nichols Rd. that some shooters are using.

Does anyone know if this is a legal shooting area?

what makes you say it could not be legit? if it's blm land (i don't know) it is far enough away from houses and roads.

I don't shoot there because I just don't know.

Not sure where eactly you are asking, maybe you can give us a bit more details. I live right near there. There is a BLM area near by that IS legal to shoot at. I hve spoken to a ranger there personally and they are fine with it as long as you clean up your trash/shells

10rdmag, sounds like where you found the shells is not a good/legal place to shoot. Remember, you must be 150 yds away from a road

Checked it out today, OK place to shoot but don't care for the single lane hillside road getting in/out, nowhere to go if someone is driving toward you.....

El Toro Rd is a nice one (Nichols) near Steele Peak. Ranges from 100 - 500 yds, and there is a spot to do more if you have 4wd.

I would sure hope East of the 15, and you'd have to go pretty far off to the west to be clear of homes.. Seems to me you would have more luck finding somewhere off of Lake Street East of the 15.

Sounds like a few people here think you are talking about the Perris BLM land out by Maywood range... I'd like to find something closer to Elsinore than out by Maywood though. If anyone hears of anything please PM me info

If it's not marked BLM land, I would venture to say that it is prob not legal. Whether you would get bothered if you shoot there is another story. I'm in the Canyon Hills area, where are you in Elsinore Barstow?

Spoke to a local officer there and was told this site is illegal. He told me it is actually in the city area.

The spot where I go shooting at is a few miles East off Nichols rd, its private property but open to most people. The guy owns about 25 acres and has shooting areas set from 10 yds to 600+ yrs. He advertises his range in the local newspaper, and just asked to give him a few days notice if you want to use the range. Its a great time over there and nice that its only a few miles from the house.

Thats far for you.

People shoot off Gilman Springs road I hear. I think it's legal but dont know for sure. You'd need to look at a map to be sure it's BLM.

I was told take gilman springs south towards hemet, when you get to the radar detector speed limit sign, Maybe 4? miles from the 60- take a left in the dirt roads going into the hills, and head back a ways- find a small dead end valley to shoot in. There are a bunch.

Otherwise, see if the 'rock pile' is open again.... or go to west end gun club.

I went to the Nichols/ Elsinore spot last week and there was No trespassing signs up and the side embankments were higher than usual so I didn't go in. I was so pissed.

There is a spot that is BLM land in Hemet/Lake Elsinore where there have been a few clean-ups recently. The county decided they are going to shut down part of this land due to a small rat that is in danger (this is what I've gathered from another thread). I shoot there a lot but haven't gone too recently to see if the rumors are true. I will be going there tonight to be testing some of my 9mm reloads.

The area off Nichols road is illegal, unless they travel very far, ~3 miles, through the back country to the BLM land (I've done it before).

Problem is, everybody passes along this spot as a shooting area and the new crowd decide to leave their targets and trash. Looks like the place might be shut down for good soon.

I think you are looking in the wrong area if you are trying to get to the BLM land... I was out there yesterday and no signs.

I just left the area. Looks like shooting has been going on there forever, empty 12g shells far as the eye can see, busted targets, trash etc. I saw no signs of any kind, there was a lone wolf with an AK enjoying the area.

I would help with a clean up.
