I know of two good places to go where you can shoot what ever you want and as long as you do it safely and clean up after yourself you will not get hassled. Anyone interested e-mail me directly and I will give you directions and more info. They are both about 20-25 minutes outside of Placerville ( that's east of Sacramento, CA ). These are both recognized plinking areas by the USFS. pthfndr@directcon.net

Mcwarrior and I have gone several times with our AR's with no problem. And as a matter of fact, I was told about these places by a member of the local gun club I am a member of who is a recently retired USFS enforcement officer who is an advocate of private AW ownership[:)] He also runs a once a month program called PLINK where volunteers from the club go to various known plinking areas up here in the forest to clean up the trash the inconsiderate leave behind. Anyone interested in helping out and seeing where they can go plinking is always welcome. They typically meet at the USFS information center in Camino Heights right off Hwy 50 outside of Placweville the third ( 3rd ) sunday of each month at 9 am.

LAGunman2K, Yeah, I also heard several times that it was a recreational target shooter that accidentally started the fire. It was repeated several times to emphasize that a shooter started it. No details, but it may have been a black powder rifle.

I keep hearing about how steel jacketed ammo can cause fires. I don't doubt there would be a spark when striking a rock BUT does anybody have any real evidence that a bullet has ever started a fire? Links to a study, etc. I've been doing some searching and haven't been able to find anything substantial. Possible urban legend stuff here?

sfoo I don't know exactly where Pipi Valley is but they probably aren't too far from there. One of them is off of North-South Road not far from 88.

Troy, How do you know that it was the ammo that started the fire? Edited to let everyone know that I've moved my question to the General Discussion area.

Pthfndr,Mechandy - why not move this over to the "Meeting&Events" part of the forums? Would be nice to get something going like the guys in SoCal have done up here in NoCal.
