"Restrictions on shooting and off-road use are in effect for all areas within the valley" is a direct quote from the LVMPD press release. I apologize for their poor wording. https://www.lvmpd.com/en-us/Press Releases/PO 063 04-06-20.pdf
And your poor wording too. “Shooting is prohibited on most BLM lands.”

So they have a press release for something that has been known for years.

Makes perfect sense. I guess releasing that fancy looking letter somehow gets people to pull their head out of their asses.

Well now, that just sounds unkind. And I thought we were friends. Oh, well.

Its was about them releasing the letter that states nothing new and nothing more than the obvious.

I find it funny how they made it look like there was some major changes happening to shooting areas due to the recent events.

After reading the press releases and carefully looking at the maps it occurs to me that Clark County lacks authority to restrict shooting on BLM land.
 
So if I'm looking at the Clark County map and the map provided here, the site off of Corn Creek Road should still be good to check out? I'm north of 95 east/west and everything else seems a bit far.

There is nothing open off of Corn Creek Road. Corn Creek Road is a USFWS National Wildlife Refuge and the only shooting allowed is if you are actually hunting.

That pin to the north is in Tule Springs conservation area (giant sloth and mammoth fossils). No shooting or dumping allowed, so that pin needs to be removed.

As far as where you can shoot up there, I’m not sure, but I do know that spot is bad.

Basically looking for a place to pattern the new 12ga, but most ranges restrict to either #7 or smaller shot, or slugs. So I figured desert might be the way to go? Just don't want to go to Sloan as that sounds dangerous for both me and my car.

If you can get out there very early it not terrible (with the exception of the trash monster that might try to eat you). Or, if you can go back in a ways, there are less-trafficked areas with less mutant hillbillies trying to kill you.

If you continue down LV blvd you can take the road toward the lightweight quarry. There are a couple of turn offs to the left that are car friendly.

It should go without saying but please don't leave any trash in the desert.

All good, plan on traveling with a trash bag. I still cut the plastic soda holder things because of those damn videos of choking turtles in the 90's

Boulder rifle pistol courtesy .Public access is limited to Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays of each week, and Federal Monday Holidays between the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, unless posted at the entrance as closed for special events or range maintenance.

Only place they limit shotgun to #6 or smaller is the skeet or trap ( forget which it is ) area.

Most shotgun restrictions are for the aerial target sports (small target loads only) or when on a rifle-only range (slug loads only). At both DSRPC and BRPC, when you are in your own bay, using your own targets against the berm, you can shoot all the magnum shotshells and buckshot you want.
