I need help understanding the legal rights for recreational shooting in Las Vegas. I’ve visited other websites and forums for info but only to find myself more confused or either misinformed. The map from these websites are also not that helpful for me - not sure what I’m looking at.
From what I learned, I think it’s safe to practice at any land administered by BLM. Pretty much anywhere out in the desert away from the cities, residential, private properties and businesses of course. However, I’m not sure how accurate this is.
There are some recommended places to go to that I’ve found such as Sloan, but some people are saying it’s a terrible place as it gets crowded with people shooting around irresponsibly creating a risky unsafe environment. I can’t trust sharing spaces with people who are especially new to firearms going out in the desert for the first time without professional/expert guidance. Also, people are known to do some wild stuff out there and not clean after themselves.
I guess what I’m looking for is some clarification about where I can practice in Nevada. Can I drive anywhere on BLM territory and setup my range or do I need to be at specific/designated coordinates? Are there any better maps that shows approved/legal areas for recreational shooting?
These are the sites I been to that aren’t very clear to me:
If you have experience in recreational shooting in Nevada, I’d love to get your input, advices and suggestions.
