Welcome from Jersey! I visit las Vegas and Henderson often and do all my shooting in the desert but have been losing places over the last 20 years. Used to shoot on
tropicana a long time ago. Then to Charleston, Range Road off the Blvd. and at the Apex. One more has been closed and I no longer know where to go. Where do you go now?

The indoor range on Tropicana "The Gun Store" is still there, as is the Charleston range (private). I shoot at the indoor range on Boulder Highway "American Shooters Supply" indoor shooting range, and gun store, and my younger son says that there is an informal range in Boulder City (I've never been there). American Shooters Supply also has an indoor range and gun store in Las Vegas on Arville (I went there years ago and bought some guns, and a gun safe).

I still like to shoot in the open where I can roll some cans. Don't you do this and if so, where?

Sure I do that, but Las Vegas, and Henderson are getting so big (last estimate was 7000 people a month), you really have to travel now to find the space to shoot safely.

I've never been there yet, but my son has. The informal range in Boulder City, is just a big dug out pit, so you have a backdrop of dirt to shoot into. There are a couple of places going out to Lake Mead, on Lake Mead Blvd. from North Las Vegas, before you get to the National Park area.

Welcome John. Sounds like all the wide open spaces are disappearing like everywhere else. I use to shoot the desert 20+ years ago, and it was no problem finding a safe out of the way place. Even had the Border Patrol show up a time or two and join in on the target parctice. Guess all that's changing, and not necessarily for the good. Glad to have you with us. and hope you post often.
