Unfortunately the guys and I do not have our own facility for long range precision rifle shooting. We do the majority of our shooting on BLM land surrounding the Las Vegas valley. We do compete at Desert Sportsman (members only range) and even head to the Clark County Shooting park from time to time to zero our rifles. We have found shooting in small groups in the desert works well for us. I wanted to share with you a common spot for long range rifle shooting. We call it Spot #1, it is located on the south end of the valley near Jean, NV. Here are directions coming from Las Vegas.
-Take the 15 south and exit at Sloan
-Turn left at the stop sign
-Turn right at the next stop sign (you’ll be heading south on LVBLVD)
-Take the road all the way to mile marker 7, in between mile marker 7 and 6 is the pull off.
-The dirt road will take you under the rail road tracks and over a cattle guard.
-The shooting spot is 1/8th mile down the road and on the right, cant miss it.
**You must bring your own targets and target stands. We do not leave anything out on the range. Remember this shooting area is located on BLM land, all BLM rules and regulations apply (BLM NV website). It is EVERYONE’s desert and is first come first serve. We have spent a lot of time out there in the past and I advise you not to shoot alone and be very mindful of off road enthusiasts. Guys on quads, dirt bikes and rhino’s seem to pop out of no where. Also keep a close eye out for other shooters, not everyone is safe, respectful and courteous. Trash shooting is a big problem so please pack out what you pack in.**
**This shooters 2008 video is an excellent example of what can happen when you are not paying attention out there.**
