    Hey Gang, I'm coming out to SLC i na few weeks and am looking for a place to go to shoot rifle (.223/.308 etc.)
    Any good outdoor ranges in the desert or elsewhere that anyone can recommend?

    Preferably a 'free range' within an hour of SLC or so.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The only place I know of in the immediate Salt Lake City area is the Lee Kay Center. It isn't free but it is cheap.

    Thanks for the infos, looks like a cool place $4.00 aint much at all.

    Ultimately we are looking for a spot in the desert. I don;t know exactly what the deal is with Utah, but I know Tucson, AZ and Phoenix, Az and parts of Colorado have some spots out in the desert where people can shoot and not be bothered.

    ALSO is there anything to know in regards to OCing in SLC?
    Any areas off limits?

    Just about anywhere in the desert is legal as long as it is not a state park or inside a city limits. Counties are not authorized by state law to restrict shooting.

    There are very few places in Utah that are off limits. Utah has statewide preemption that prohibits ANY government entity from restricting carry unless specifically authorized by the legislature. Basically, the only restrictions are jails, mental health facilities, courts and the secure area of an airport.

    Private property owners can ask you to leave.

    The bulk of Utah gun law is contained in Utah Code sections 76-10-500 through 76-10-530 which can be found at http://le.utah.gov/UtahCode/title.jsp

    Note that carrying on a public street without a concealed permit requires that the firearm be "unloaded". The Utah definition of loaded is:

    76-10-502. When weapon deemed loaded.
    (1) For the purpose of this chapter, any pistol, revolver, shotgun, rifle, or other weapon described in this part shall be deemed to be loaded when there is an unexpended cartridge, shell, or projectile in the firing position.
    (2) Pistols and revolvers shall also be deemed to be loaded when an unexpended cartridge, shell, or projectile is in a position whereby the manual operation of any mechanism once would cause the unexpended cartridge, shell, or projectile to be fired.
    (3) A muzzle loading firearm shall be deemed to be loaded when it is capped or primed and has a powder charge and ball or shot in the barrel or cylinders.

    Don't forget about post offices. Everyone always forgets about the post office. I mean, you probably won't be mailing anything while you are here, but I thought you should at least know to avoid carrying in there open or concealed. The feds are so freaking anal and stupid. Don't they know that it's only the employees working inside that "go postal"? hehehehe

    If it isn't broke, then don't fix it, or you'll fix it until it's broke.

    I just keep thinking in terms of a sovereign state. :quirky

    I keep meaning to talk to the Postmaster here because they changed the signs on the Post Office door from warning about no firearms to warning about enhanced penalties for armed robbery of a postal employee.
