    Does anyone know of a shooting range/place where you can bring your own junk to shoot up in the San Antonio area? I remember a place in California where you could bring plastic bottles, junk stuff, whatever, to shoot up but all of the places here in SA that I've contacted so far are just for targets.

    There was one many many years ago, long closed. Never heard of another. You will probably have to find a friend that has land. The most obvious reason for not allowing it is that people won't clean up after themselves. Another reason is potential ricochets onto adjacent property.

    You may be thinking of Lytle Creek near LA. I know someone who had a lot of fun shooting pumpkins and other stuff there years back...

    Don't know of anything like that out here, though. Lone Star allow steel targets and that is as wild as it gets unless you are on private property.

    Might have been Burro Canyon, come to think of it. Was a damn good time tho-blowing shit up is a great time. Hope you find a place to do it here.

    Thanks guys. Yeah that makes sense about having to clean up and stuff. @mak91, yeah I cant remember the name or even nearest city in Cali, might be gone now, who knows.

    When I said many years, it was in the 80s, guy had an ice house and an informal shooting range. You shot down into a small valley. Paid a few dollars for the day. What was really "different" was that you could buy a six pack in the ice house and as you drank your beer you could use the cans as targets. Not that I ever did, nor did anyone I was with. It was on Bandera Road just north of Helotes.

    Texas is far more refined than California.

    We don't shoot "junk."

    Be well.

    I certainly try to refrain from shooting my junk.

    I have to see somebody's junk first before I decide whether or not I want to shoot it.
