Default Desert Shooting

Hi Guys,

I see a lot of people asking where they can shoot magnetic / steel core ammo. Since most of the ranges and National Forests do not allow this type of ammo, my friends and I usually go out to the high desert in BLM land to go plinking.

Since we're desert rats anyways, it doesnt bother us going that far, and we love being able to go plinking when we're not racing, testing, pitting or chasing for the race season.

I would love to invite fellow Angelinos to go shooting and wheeling with us if you're down to shred some dirt. High clearance vehicles are not required by recommended. A cool and easy-going attitude is, however, required

I will post up outtings and events in this thread for those who do want to come with. If you are interested in coming to a trip that I post in here, just PM me with your number and I'll hit you up!

- Aaron

I've had a lot of people PM me about going, but I feel like some of you dont feel as comfortable going as far out into the desert as I do.

We're on crunch time right now trying to finish up another truck before a big off road event on the 23rd, but I am itching to go shoot this month.

If I set something up on the 30th of this month, will anyone be interested in coming on a overnight camping trip in the desert?

Subscribed. I don't have a lot of availability, but wheeling, camping and shooting are three things I like to do, and if I can make it I will. I've spent lots of time in the dessert with my Jeep, and I've got GPS map software on my phone that shows all California BLM land.

Wondering about the height clearance you mention on the vehicles. I have a Mitsubishi Montero SUV with 4wd. I know it's doesn't have the height clearance like the trucks you have in the picture but do you think my SUV will be able to handle it?

i'm pretty sure you'll be ok. his rig is setup as a chase vehicle so it's pretty well modded.
i wouldn't be surprised if he said he races that thing, i see a lot of goodies hooked up on it.

Stock SUV or pickup will be fine, we just wont go too fast.

A bunch of us are going to Barstow to test my buddy's new ranger race set up, and me and a few friends are definitely going to be doing a lot of shooting. This will be a saturday night through sunday trip. PM me if you want to come!
