where to shoot in or around Bakersfield, CA


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I've just got a marlin model 60 .22LR. I want to take it outside and shoot at cans. I haven't found anywhere yet around Bakersfield, CA where I can do this.

I haven't spent a lot of time really close to bakersfield but I know that there is some BLM land in that area. If you want to take a little bit longer trip you can head out towards mojave where there is a lot of public land. I live in santa Maria and when I am passing through that area going to barstow I see signs for public land all around. Also if you want to head in the opposite direction you can try the Los Padres National Forest.

Yes, you can shoot in national forests. That is the most common place for peole that don't have connections to land. You might want to check with the forest service before you go. Just last year they limited forest use to hunting only during the dry seasons. Here in california they seem to beleive that target shooters cause fires. This time of the year it should be allowed because of the wet weather.

Plinker 22, I got in a little late on this. When I lived in Los Angeles (35 years), I owned a vacation home in the southern Sierra, in southern Tulare County. To get there, we'd get off the freeway at the Oildale/Airport Dr. Exit, and then go up through the oil and ranch country toward Fountain Springs, Posey, then up to Panorama Park, where our cabin was located.

If you head out that direction on that highway, (just go straight out Chester St. or Airport Drive) there is (or was, when we left eight years ago) a great shooting range called "Five Dogs Shooting Range." Not far from Bakersfield. Go into any gun store there and ask and they can tell you if Five Dogs is still open.

Have fun.

L.W.
