Elevated overlook with lots of isolated rocks and bushes w ranges of 25-200 yards.  typically has fresh supply of asphalt chunks and small rocks supplied from caltrans.

Pullover on East bound Lucky Drive en route to Richmond bridge about 1000 yards before Sam Quintin prison.  Several unsafe trails down low bluff to cobble beach with plenty ammo and boulder targets.  Bonus ammo is nicely rounded brick chunks that make cool red puffs w good strike.  It helps to soak brinks prior to use to increase weight.

Hwy 1 South of Davenport to Santa Cruz.  Many trailheads and places to pull over and access the abandoned railroad tracks running N/S to the west of the hwy.  There are tons of perfect sized ballast stones for ammo, and  multiple open vistas and targets with safe backstops.
Be cautious of direction and distance to hwy, poison oak,  nudey sunbathers, dog walkers and others that enjoy the tracks.
