Ron K and I went target shooting in the desert today and had a great time. There are numerous gun clubs, public shooting ranges and desert shooting areas. One such area is a few miles from the RV park and Ron wanted to know how to find the place. We each took a pistol and headed out in the desert to the shooting place. It is in an ADOT pond that has long since dried up and provides an embankment to shoot into. It is also on BLM land and perfectly legal to shoot there.

There were literally thousands of spent shells littering the ground at the shooting site. Everything from .22, .25, 30-30, .226, shotgun shells and everything in between was laying all over the place. As bad as it looked, it was much cleaner than the last time I was there. Evidently a group of shooters clean the area fairly often and it didn't look as bad as it sounds.
