However, it says Apex is disallowed. The area that I spoke about is north of Apex about 12 miles. So you can shoot there. If you take Las Vegas BLVD north out of the city untill the road gets to a big berm just before a huge power substation, you can shoot there. Plus you can shoot on the west side of the dry lake there, but backdrops are minimal there. I have had metro police check me at these sites. They are fine with shooting there as long as you are safe, have no illegal weapons, and pick up your trash, targets, and casings. Which most people don't do, and reflects poorly on us who do it right.
