Default Barstow/Ft Irwin Rd. BLM Shoot? Sat. April 24 UPDATE

Hmmm, would be good to get in a great day of shooting before it starts heating up. How about Saturday April 24th?
Meeting at the Del Taco off the Lenwood Exit at 10am? We can then caravan over at 10:30. (Those who know the spot can just meet up there, of course. Or see map on page three)
Oh, and I'll bring some targets:



Who's in?

I went out there last time in my Mustang convertible with no issues. Only the last 20 yards to the exact shooting spot requires off-road capability, or someone willing to just walk their gear up the hill (like I did).

Sorry about sched conflict.
I don't like Sundays as I've been caught up in the traffic coming back from Vegas and it's a royal pain.

I'd be interested in going - it's on my cal. I may have 1-2 extra space in my car for those wanting to carpool, preferably someone who's been there as I have no idea where this is. I'm coming from Pasadena. Thanks!

I'm interested in going. Would be my first time. Is this off the 15? Any restrictions or is it just plain desert shooting (rapid fire allowed). Sorry for sounding like such a newby, but I am

Plain ol desert shooting. Rapid fire is cool from the times I've been there dumping mags from LoneWolfs AW's. Just be mindful and obey whomever is the designated range master. (still owe you a bulk pack of 223)

Meet up with the guys at 10am at the del taco in barstow, grab something to eat and meet the guys, then follow the caravan to the spot.

Hope to see you there.

You would need a 4x4 to go out into the field of fire, which is a bowl-shaped wash. "X" marks the spot:



The dirt road leading to the shooting location (as marked), is 8.3 miles down Ft Irwin Rd. from H15, just a few miles east of Barstow.

Wow, I thought I knew where this was gonna be. According to the map posted by Full Clip it's a different area than I usually go. What kind of distances can you shoot at this spot?

Up to 296 yds. flat with a nice and safe backstop.
Aprox 600-700 yds uphill ( again, just to be on the safe side).

Yeah, that sounds right, and the backstop makes it a great site.
Also, it's virtually impossible for the off-roaders who frequent the general area to wander into our field of fire.

Default Afton Canyon

I'll be with some buddies down the road from you all in Afton Canyon doing the dirt bike and shooting thing.
We talked to the ranger last time there and as long as you stay to the south of the Railroad owned property and off of Mojave preserve property
and stay on BLM Land, the rangers won't bother you and the Railroad Security Nazis won't be able to get you for trespassing.

Very cool place, water in the Mojave river on the weekend of April 2, and probably more after Mondays storm.

There are hundreds of the tool steel railroad track thingies to shoot at.
(You can find them laying in piles by the trestles)

They hold up to 5.56 just fine and I will punish them with the M1A and buddies SKS this weekend to see how they stand up to those calibers...

Have Fun

Looks like he's in Banning.

Crap guys, I may not be able to come again this time. I was asked to help a friend move that day. Next time if I cant go, glad to see these shoots are showing up more frequent however!
