Heck, I could probably camp out and shoot the next day as well, and still not see anyone (and I've actually done and experienced that). A significant percentage of the weekends are like that (holiday weekends usually suck, though).

I can shoot out to several hundred yards or more without having to walk a significant distance to targets since my vehicle can make it most of the way. If I was willing to hike uphill a good ways with a target and back, shooting past 1,000 yards, and safely, is feasible. The terrain also permits for safe multi-directional shooting, such as what you might want to do for tactical scenarios.

Most of the route is paved road. I have to travel on dirt roads (official or unofficial) for less than three miles. From OC it'd be about 2 hours, from where I live, less than 1 1/2 hrs. Traffic each way is usually not much of an issue.

It may be more of a drive, but I can pretty much shoot whatever I want, however I want, for as long as I want, and set my own breaks (and even check or change my target after every group if I want to do so), without people bothering me, and without having to pay fees to anybody, and without having to abide by stupid, tyrannical decrees from the dictator in Sacramento or of similarly dictatorial "health officers" from the counties (like the mask mandates and other crap).

To me, that's worth the extra drive, and far better than being at a range here in SoCal. I've largely stopped patronizing ranges as a consequence. Due to locations, the drives to the better ones can still be pretty time-consuming, even though they are not as far away, too.

Shooting somewhere like off of Hodge or Wild Wash Roads is another matter entirely. Definitely worse than a range in most respects, even now.

Yes! This is absolutely correct.

Yes! The smart people agree. 👍

Hodge road is a definite no no for me after my buddy was out there seeing people shoot at filled small campfire propane tanks.

Last time I was there one shooter was shooting a 308AR and told me I could have his brass. When I started picking up the brass, the range master chewed me out on speaker and gave me a rules flyer to read. I've been shooting at Angles for 47+ years never had a problem before.

The range officers split the proceeds of selling the used brass so they have a financial interest in people leaving it on the ground for them to collect.
If the person SHOOTING the brass picks it up and gives it to you, that's OK.
If they see someone picking up brass from SOMEONE ELSE, that's when they ***** you out.
Next time, get the rangemaster's attention before you start picking up brass and tell them they you have obtained the permission of the owner of the fired brass to pick it up on their behalf.

Which ones check?

Thanks - I told the range master that the shooter gave me permission to pick up his brass. The range master didn't care.
