I recently purchased a break barrel pellet rifle and want to take my son out target shooting but reading 33 pages of gobeldegook City of San Diego regs left me confused. Is there an area preferably in Santee or El Cajon I can LEGALLY shoot. I saw some info about Jacumba but according to reports that's closed too. Thanks in advance for any info, Bob.

Why not just speak to your neighbors and explain the situation. Betting most wouldn't have any issue with it. I used to shoot my air gun in the backyard for hours as a kid. A cardboard box stuffed tightly with newspaper makes a good, safe and quiet backstop to shoot into.

Just a suggestion if you do shoot in your backyard make sure you have a bullet trap area so you have no issues with ricochets depending on where you live you may want to check the local laws contacting the police department will always help they know better than anybody because they'll be knocking on your door if anything goes wrong.

Go to the end of mast past Santana high.I take my dog running there every now and then.Plenty of space there for a pellet gun.You only need 50 yards or so...correct?
Not sure about legality...its a pellet gun though,didnt know there were laws.......officer.
Just park your car and walk around the chain link fence,theres an opening in it.
