Default Good and LEGAL places to shoot in the desert (So Cal)

I've looked at the BLM website and they offer maps to show you where their land is, but what I'm more looking for is good shooting spots that people may know GPS cords to.

I would like to take the family out with the ARs and pistols for some shooting instruction and target practice. I've been shooting in the past near El Mirage and Mojave over a decade ago, and since I wasn't driving, I don't know where the heck we were camped up at.

Do any of you have any good GPS coords to camping/shooting spots that are still legal to shoot at these days?

Thanking you all in advance.

I shoot when I go wheelin', and one of my goto places is along the Bradshaw trail. It will require a truck to go any distance, but there are nice canyons that branch off to the north that allow some privacy, and many allow a decent shooting distance if that is your thing.
It's just north of Niland, near hwy 111, on the eastern shore of the Salton sea.
Starts at 33.506012 -115.765885

After you are done shooting, I suggest a visit to Salvation mtn and slab city. It's a weird place for sure.

Blm land west side of 395 above 58. I just scoped it out. If you are interested pm me and I'll give you more detail I also took a short iPhone video of entrance right off 395. Took me hour and 10 mins to get there from Rancho Cucamonga.

half of you here are weak and lame that will basically wind up being happy with .22 single shot pistols or single barrel shotguns..
