Range day after some much needed rain

Got some range time in after the last few rain storms southern California has had. Super rare that we get so much rain but made the hills around Lake Elsinore look absolutely amazing. Not a lot of green here. Anyone else local?

I thought there was a restriction on shooting guns in California after a rain.

I thought there was a restriction on shooting guns in California before a rain.

I thought there was a restriction on shooting guns in California during a rain.

Yeah yeah I get were this is going...lol. restrictions on everything. So frustrating. Good thing the M1A is allowed here even tho the break is different (Actually like the looks of the CA version better than the rest). I lived in Utah for a while and go hunt in Texas every two months so the restrictions aren't that bad (Don't get offended fellow Californians i understand it sucks here and we should have them). When I fly to Texas I fly with my AR but don't bring mags. Just use my buddies when i get there.

Thanks from JEFFJP_N_JJ

Amazing. So happy with it. I have since dressed it all up and now want to buy a socom with walnut to leave stock. Haven't even had it for 2 weeks and i have the bug. I like it more than any of my AR rifles. Easy to know why.

Thanks from Seventh Fleet

Yeah shooting an AR after shooting a M1A is kind of like shooting a glock after your 1911, you just feel kind of dirty.

Never owned a clock but my 1911 game is strong. I know the feeling though. My AR's feel so weak now. Here is my sexy SA Loaded I carry

I wish! That would be pretty fun. Especially with Trump allowing them to do their jobs now. I'm not Hispanic but i do speak Spanish fluently so it would probably be an interesting job. I never want to shoot anyone and hope i never have to but there are some bad hombres coming over. The Coyotes that steal and rape the women they bring over are nasty monsters. Plus all the drugs. I see it first hand living in a sanctuary city. Scary stuff.

Awesome picture! I don't live in Elsinore. Just go there to shoot. Grew up in LA and now live in Corona. Burro Canyon is awesome. Its too far of a drive for me though when i can go 20 min to BLM land by Elsinore. Ive never shot at Pendleton but i do go surfing there all the time. How is it?

Pendleton's pretty nice. I normally shoot "Across the course" but quite a few people shoot M1A'a in the CMP Garand matches. It's an easy going "match" where everyone is just out having a good time shooting.

Steel Peak? I was reading on CalGuns that the County and Elsinore city counsel is having BLM shut down the shooting access.

I shoot on BLM land as well and one time some years back had a Ranger give me a 'run down' and firearms inspection... DO hope the new POTUS cleans up the system...

Semi-local, 29 Palms. I'm probably 2+ hours from you. Edit: I see you live in Corona, I used to live there on E Citron St. when I was a kid. Still about 2 hours away.
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.
