Have you tried GeoCommunicator.gov
for locating BLM land?
Screenshot 1 of 2
» Click "Interactive Maps
Screenshot 2 of 2
» Select/check "Surface Management Agency
" and "BLM Administrative Areas
" on the right, as shown, then zoom in wherever you want (e.g., Albuquerque, NM)
Note that the interface is a little funky, but it'll get you there.
Also, it's been more than 20 years since I visited the area, but there used to be several shooting spots along Highway 6 (South of town along I-25 or West along I-40).
As you can see, there isn't much BLM land nearby. This is because ABQ is surrounded by Reservation land to the North, West, and South, and National Forest land to the East.
Based on the Site Alteration Notice
, it's not clear how much longer 'GeoCom' will be in business.
