According to California state law, you are allowed to shoot targets and openly carry firearms anywhere where the discharge and carry of a firearm is not otherwise prohibited (i.e within city limits, federal law, restrictions based on county ordinance, etc.)
So, most BLM land and National Forest property in less populated counties and away from towns is legal for target practice. Just make sure you are shooting into a safely banked area with full visibility in every direction. Just cause it's legal doesn't mean it's safe-- improper use is how accidents happen and responsible gun owners get a bad name.
