Glad to post the county shooting regs for Riverside county, I'm still trying to find them for San Bernadino County. I still can't find a source for the San Bernadino County maps you have on the board.

Thanks

Hello Jforgy,

I got the maps from the San Bernardino County Special Districts offce on 5th St. in San Bernardino. I'm guessing they drew up the map from ordnances like the one you posted from Riverside. I haven't seen any of those odrnances anywhere but will keep looking too.
