Default Steel Peak Officially Closed for undetermined length of time

As posted on the BLM website........

"Bureau of Land Management Issues Recreational Target Shooting Restrictions in Riverside and San Diego Counties

Release Date: 07/01/16
Contacts: Steven Sobieszczyk, ssobieszczyk@blm.gov
News Release No. CDD-16-29"


Today sucks. First our State strips us of some of our freedoms, then we get slapped with land closure.

I came here hoping to post about a "one last shoot before fire season hits!", and then decided to check the BLM website.

Oh well.

It closes every year, for usually half the year. It will be open again come January. AZ does this same exact thing.

True.

Gotta remember that only a small percentage of people who go there are actual enthusiasts. The majority are just dvmbfvcks with guns.

I was in the pool chemical aisle at WalMart this weekend. There was a guy there going through the chemicals and reading the labels, obviously unsure of what he needed to correct whatever was wrong with his pool. He looked to be about thirty.

Another couple of younger guys came down the aisle and before even reading any of the products they just asked the 30-something guy who was there what he recommended to clean up their pool.

Without asking them any specifics, he told them to buy a few bags of Shock and just dump it in the pool. The younger guys told him that the pool was green and that it hadn't been used for a long time but they wanted to get in that weekend, cause they were going to have a barbecue.

The guy told them again, "Yeah, just put two or three bags of shock in and it'll clean right up!"

The young guys enthusiastically said "Thanks!", picked up a handful of bags of shock and walked away. The 30-something guy stayed, still looking at the wall of chemicals.

All three were dvmbfvcks with pools.

What is the easiest way to find out when this area reopens without having to drive out there?

Went to Christmas tree lane today in Perris. Ranger showed up almost immediately and dropped a warning....said the fire danger was the only reason they were closed and they would be reopened in a couple of months.

Can anyone tell me roughly where bee canyon is? I'm looking to find some good spots to shoot and am ALSO tired of irresponsible people who don't clean up their trash. TIA.

Why such gloomy outlooks. Yeah it's closed. What are you doing at home to be prepared for the home invasion? You can reload, organize, educate others....

Be happy you woke up and can spend time with family and friends defending our constitutional rights!
