Took my boys out today to do some plunking west of Lake Pleasant MM14 and it's closed now for DUST CONTROL. Gate is chained and locked. I was there a few weeks ago and it was still open. How can there be a dust problem all the way out there??????????????? Man it's getting hard to find a Desert place to shoot!!!!

I don't know if that's the northern entrance to where I go, but you can try going up 163rd Ave. from Grand Ave. And of course, if you go almost all the way to Morristown, you can take off up Castle Hot Springs Rd. and find a spot.

Table Mesa is not my destination of choice. Considering some of the people I have seen there, how they were shooting, their choice of backstop (or lack thereof), and their lackluster attitude towards firearms safety, I never went back after the second time. Most of the shooting sites are disgusting - packed with all sorts of trash.

I just don't feel safe there and the nature has been destroyed by litter. No reason to go.

Looks likes it's municipal. City park not state so I'm guessing no...

The jeeper's have been cleaning up after the target shooters at table mesa for years. What a mess! Same
out at four peaks. Not surprised these areas are closed to shooting. Please pick up after your self and police
your brass and targets!

I live out in San Tan valley at Hunt and Gary, anywhere to shoot along hunt going towards florence? and what is the status of queen valley to shoot? I have heard tons of different answers but last time I went, a Pinal County Deputy said it was closed to shooting, but this was like 2 years ago. Any ideas?

My understanding is the Queen Valley site is closed. I have not been out there though as it is a long way to find out. I have been checking the boards and either no one in the East Valley has been shooting in months or no one has posted any updates on shooting locations.

Went shooting a couple months back with a friend and our two boys out in Queen Valley below the damn. Several people out there shooting, as we actually called Pinal County Sheriff and this is where he told us to go.

I've heard that MCSO has been ticketing people that go shooting off of I-10 and Watson since that whole area became Skyline regional park. Was just out in south Rainbow Valley yesterday shooting a Bluegrass Armory XL50. No problems out there.
