Found me an excellent shooting platform. It's mobile and very stable :D Anything spotted on top of the hill, it'll be toast. With the weight of this rifle! I might install a permanent one... :) Posted ImagePosted Image

Not legal in Kali. though, your shooting from a vehicle, even a loaded gun resting against the truck will get you a ticket. Nice setup though.,,,300wsm

That is a nice setup and 300wsm is correct. You have to be careful in California or you get bit.

And if it's not your property then a permission slip from the property owner, if you want to do it by the book.

Thanks for the heads up guys! I guess I have to reread the regulation. I thought as long as your out of the vehicle and is off road your fine. I always heard or read guys using the hood of the car to shoot or was that from another state.

In California it's like stated above. You hear of people doing it because they don't know the law but it will get you a ticket real fast and your gun confiscated if caught. Good old California and another fine law.

I was wondering about a shooting platform built on a Trailor, If its un hooked from a tow vehicle, is it still considered shooting from a Vehicle?

You may even get cited if you lean a loaded firearm anywhere on your vehicle while removeing you hunting jacket or tying your boot

That's true Bernie. If you are on a public accessible piece of property and rest a loaded gun against your vehicle it can result in a ticket.

So basically you are saying that the army surplus WWII quad .50 cal mount that I have mounted on top of my motorhome is not OK? :014:
