Well, we do live in a dry ol' desert, folks.
Sure been a hot, dry one so far this summer, eh?
those restrictions are kinda silly.
Why do you think it's silly? Almost every fire west of the lake, this year, has been caused by bullets. Low humidity, a lot of cheat grass, and high temps makes it easy to start a fire. Doesn't seem silly to me.
So you can still shoot in formal/developed shooting ranges, right?
That was my understanding.
Or so they claim. I just find it hard to believe, that's all.
Is the Hobble Creek range still open? How is it there if it is open?
How long until the ban is lifted?
i called the utah county sheriff and they didn't have a time set when people can shoot again. but i called july 3rd so mayb they figured it out by now.
I read this morning that the shooting ban in Utah County is for at least 30 days and might be for the rest of the summer. Due to this restriction they have opened the Utah County Sheriff's shooting range for free public use. I'll include a link from KSL with the info.
I know one man in Saratoga Springs that caused a fire shooting. Heck, he even owns up to it.
I don't have a problem with this restriction.
I still wish there was a range in Salt Lake County that allowed position shooting...
Tooele county also. Yesterday Tooele fire told me it will be in effect until it gets wet. We just need a few good storms.
Anyone who thinks it is silly dosen't live here. It was once said that a man can be shot in the west for walking toward a river with an empty bucket. It is dry this year. I think some of the problem is from steel jacketed or core bullets. The 19th SF started a small fire several years ago at Camp Williams shooting an AK with steel jacket ammo.
I have several Boy Scouts who want to pass off the shotgun merit badge but it will cost a fortune to go to a trap range so we are waiting for them to lift the ban.
The hunter education course at Lee-Kay does. I wonder if they could be sweet talked into doing the same on the 200/300 yard range?
The Utah county sheriff's office range is open to the public during this shooting ban.
It's down spanish fork canyon, near Thistle.
Take highway 6 to 89. Down 89 maybe a mile, right side of the road.
It's free, and it's a pretty decent range.
It's actually one of the best ranges in the state. With the exception of not having an indoor classroom, it's Far better then SL County's range. IMHO..
I agree. I normally just shoot on the west side of the lake.
This range is a much better option.
It has, IIRC, three or four pistol ranges, a shotgun range, and a 100 yard rifle range with target stands, benches and chairs, and shade.
I was impressed.
They have somewhat tight hours. I seem to remember that they close around 5?
There's only a few ranges that are open for public use. And yes, they are open on Fridays 5-9 and Sat. 8-5. But I dont think this will last much longer.
Some of the ranges that arent open to public use is the Pop-up Steel range, the 'running man' range, the regular turning-target system, and the Hot house. (the new one is being constructed and will be done in a few weeks) They also have a rifle/sniper range that I believe goes beyond 600 yards.
And to top it off, the new restrooms are nice and clean!!
Story says bullets don't cause fires:
Not surprised they couldn't start a fire.
It never happened during any previous summers.
We had plenty of fires in the area then, too.
Yet we're supposed to believe that multiple shooters caused multiple fires THIS summer?
