Deliverance Ranch is just a few miles out of Elsinore, on Nichols Rd. north of I-15. Good place to shoot, with ranges at 300yds out to 1000yds. Smoothy, Elsinore is trying to shut down shooting on BLM land that's close to the city. Unfortunately rounds have been landing close to some houses. How can you guys shoot at Burro??? Every time I go up there, it's gusty and windy. Even the targets get blown down. -Lloyd

Alaska is my home and has been since 1983, however, I do appreciate your part of the country.

I have worked down out of Corona for very short stints here and there (during winter months, my "off" season) for a fishing client who owned a construction company.

First stint stayed with my boss up at Eagle Glen (Corona) , another stint stayed at Norco, yet another longer stint brought my family down and rented a place in Wildomar for a few months. We enjoyed that immensely with daily swims in the pool, mountain biking out the front door and carne asada from the local market, not to mention grapefruit, lemons and avocadoes!

The last stint I stayed with my boss and his wife again up above the Santa Rosa Plateau on Escala (they had moved from Corona) From there could see Big Bear and the Pacific, as well as hear cannon fire from Camp Pendleton. I was there for only five weeks that time but hiked over 70 miles in the evenings coming back with headlamps and on weekends.

Both with and without my family on those trips I developed an appreciation for your part of the country. The only thing I missed was having a firearm, well, my own firearm anyway, with me for some of those trips.

Haven't been down there for several years now but have quite a few friends who come up to fish with me every year, specifically from Corona. I know for a fact you would know who they are.

One thing I was bummed about, that first year in Eagle Glen there was a grapefruit orchard to the south of Eagle Glen that ran all the way down to the 15 (off the Cajalco), it's not there anymore, fact is just looked on Google it looks like empty land, but MAN, did those blossoms smell wonderful!

Oh yeah, Lake Elsinore, enjoyed driving on the west side of it there was a little stand that sold local honey that my family and I enjoyed bringing home.

One more thing, I did find shell casings here and there up in the hills that told me somebody enjoyed shooting "out in the bush"

Cheers man! and thanks for the post.

With the way the wind gusts up there in every direction, you must spend more time adjusting that windage drum more then ya do shooting. Last time I was there the wind was gusting 30-35mph. -Lloyd

When I bought my rifle I had 6 ARs now I have only 1. Im wanting a walnut scout rifle. I want to remove the forward mount and replace the handguard and just have a shorter clone to my loaded model. ARs I just got bored with them, I have owned a lot of them but after shooting a real rifle they lost their appeal.

Good to see people out shooting, the weather has been fantastic the last couple days, even a bit warm. I need to make a range trip myself.

Ha that's awesome! I know right where that is. Small world. Yes the rain has been great and the hills look so green.

There's a bunch of people local to you on the board. Several of us up in the Corona/Chino Hills area. We've never managed to set up a shoot.

I just moved from San Dimas to Murrieta. Once I get my gear set up, we'll have to have a meet, greet and shoot, followed by some good food and (in my case), some good IPA's. Maybe sometime in April when things dry out. After not seeing rain like this for five years, I forgot how muddy things can get around here. -Lloyd

I see it first hand living in a sanctuary city. Scary stuff.
With that type people in your area be sure to keep Miss granny's sks loaded and in reach!
