Default Closest BLM shooting to LA or OC?

I know this has been discussed before but I'd like to go soon out and BLM shoot, bring my own fruits, targets etc and have fun with it.

Where's the closest to OC / LA? I live in Westminster.

I've heard people say, Barstow or Palm Springs, which is the closest? The closer the better.

The palm springs place technically isn't legal from everything I could gather, and from Westminster Barstow is closer.

Drinking bear and live firing? Once you guys do find your spot can you please post where, so I can avoid the area or at least wear some plates if I ever go there.

Hodge road is the best. Legal and you know you're out city limits. About 1:45hrs from SGV. Worth the drive. I'm going next Sun. If you wanna join us. PM me. AND we do drink beer after the shooting is done and we're hanging out. The only thing is trash bags mandatory. I like my spot and want to continue to use it.

palm springs area isnt illegal, but make sure you do your research about the area.

I know a of place in palm desert (5 mins away from palm springs) that is pretty cool. ...... but im not going to tell you where it is, ill let you find it (not that hard, i found it through info on CG)

but I wouldnt drive all the way there just to shoot .... If you were going there to party at a resort then I bring my guns.

Nice! So cops don't care if your out there drinking copious amounts of beer? Sounds like my kinda place.

How many other plinkers are out there at once? Sounds like a good laugh to me.

1+1 doesn't =3 socalenthusiast
Not sure how you logically derived that having a few beers after shooting equates to cops not caring about said activities?
Oh well,..I may be slow..carry on.

I'm not saying they don't care, but is it easily to get away with. I wanna go shooting at Hodge Road and drink some beer, it seems pretty plain, simple and generally a damn good time. Agreed?

Shooting and drinking beers is a recipe made in heaven for the anti-gunners to illustrate irresponsible gun owners. as I have said before CA tries to legislate stupidity because CA is full of stupid... Case in point, This thread

If anyone wants a spot in the Palm Springs area I can give them a few. If your looking for a long distance spot....I have several of those as well. However, my personal favorite spot will still remain a closely guarded secret.

Default hodge road

socal enthu.,
take the 15 north, get off on hodge rd., turn lt. and go over the freeway and it's about a quarter mile west of the 15. you can actually see cars driving by as you shoot! You can go pretty far back and away from the freeway, but the first time i was there i was astounded how many people were shooting their rifles a stone's throw away from a major highway.
