Default Places to shoot in south Ventura County

Anybody have an idea where a nice outdoor shooting area is in south Ventura county? A place where you can explore with your truck, and end up at a place to plink. A great outdoor experience. I am from San Bernardino County and Riverside where these places exist. Anything out near Simi Valley, what about the laws?

I live in Thousand Oaks so I would be very interested in this information also. Currently I have to drive all the way out to Santa Barbara or Ojai for good NF land. And my pickup is yearning for some 4x4 action.

PM would be much appreciated if you don't want to out your secret place on the web.

Unfortunately, looking at google maps, reveals that the only open areas in So Ventura Co are the Santa Monica Mountains and some open area north of Simi.

Although, this looks promising: Of course, it says nothing about actually being able to shoot.

The only place I know of close to Simi would be Wes Thompson's Piru Range. But I believe they charge $15. It's a great range (out to 700 yds, I believe) and the drive should only be about 30 mins from Simi.

If you live in Ventura, I recommend Wes Thompson's Firing Range in Piru. It's Bring Your Own Ammo (BYAO), $15.00 to use the range, rifle range with paper and itron targets at 100 yds and go all the way up the hill for a 1000 yrd target (pretty awesome), short pistol range with paper and iron targets also. It's a bit out of the way off of CA-126 but perfect if you just want to shoot.
