Default Example of Place to Shoot in Isolated, So Cal Deserts

Hello,

I am looking for flat, clean, people-less, legal shooting area in Kern, Inyo, San Bernardino, Riverside, or Imperial Counties to sight in my new Colt M4 and Aimpoint Pro with a simple target stand and paper target.

I already looked at BLM and National Forest Maps and many online Posts, still haven't a clue.

I'm really independent, so I prefer way-out there desert like area with no one around, but still accessible by regular car road.

"For example" coordinates would be nice .

Thanks in Advance

Good luck! with 20 MILLION people in the LA, OC RS area, you just aren't going to find your "undiscovered country". ALL BLM is still off limits to rifle shooting due to fire regs, or is permanently shotgun only. If you just want to plink with your AR at paper, go rent a bay at Raahaugies or toe the line at Burro Canyon. (with EVERYONE else).

wrong. Steele Peak is open.

OP- nobody is going to give up their secret spot.

On your list are some of the largest and least populated counties in the whole country. And what populations they have are very concentrated. You should have no trouble finding a spot with the smallest amount of map and satellite image reviewing. Why don't you drive up 395 past Ridgecrest. Better shooting options on the east side. Or anywhere along the 40 on the south side after Ludlow. Or anywhere north of Barstow on the northwest side of the 15. You got thousands and thousands of square miles to choose from. Just stay out of DVNP, MNP, ORV areas, and the military bases.

Thank you, Tanner68 for the constructive response.

By the way:

DVNP=Death Valley National Park
ORV=Off Road Vehicle
MNP= Mojave National Park

Correct?

Hey "2761377",

I have money left in my Flexible Spending Account. Send me the prescription for your paranoia meds, and I will try to assist you.

no thanks. My meds and my shooting spots are things I can do on my own.

some of us don't need to be spoon fed.

2761377,

You are still paranoid. You are wrong on the DOJ accusation. Do you randomly falsely accuse people?

Also, this is a social forum. I am new to this hobby. My question is legit for someone who has not until recently owned a rifle, or shot in NF or BLM land. If you want to be bitter and paranoid do so on the street, where you can get some instant feedback. I asked for coordinates not to go to particular spot, but to makes inferences from a specific legal location.

It is a long drive to go past Barstow. How about somewhere in the Angeles forest? Is that too close to civilization?

Angeles Forest too close to Los Angeles. Los Angeles County equates gun ownership to bad intention more than any other place in the Western USA.

Saying this as a 22 year resident.

I thought of going east of Barstow too, but its too far past anything interesting

Thanks for the constructive response.

I hear people shooting near Baseline and Watermen in San Bernardino almost every night.
