Has anyone else heard about this?

Looks like its going to be a massive complex with a little bit of everything.

I have not... but it would be a great addition!


ETA: Appears to be land owned by "7 O Ranch"... what's the odds someone on the commission has some tie there!?

Yeah it's going to be a bit of a drive from Rapid, North of the intersection of Elk Vale and Elk Creek Road a few miles. Which is cool cause I live out that way.

Cool. My wife and I own a couple of sections a few miles south of there. I am all for anything to increase the sellable value and just happen to promote the shooting sports.

Interesting. So near the tilford road intersection? I'd probably never shoot at it because I have my own range but that would be nice for the public to have.

That is the place another customer was telling me about last week at the counter top store. Good for me since I live close by in Summerset.

I hope they will have 2 gun or 3 gun matches.

Word around here is that it's a dead deal.

Looks like it still has legs (and $5 million) in a bill that passed a senate appropriations committee and now goes to full senate:

I hope you go speak in favor of it. One of my good friends and his family own land bordering it and they are vehemently opposed to it and have been very vocal about it from the county to state level. I'm in favor of it. The black hills needs a range like this. But it would do some good for nearby land owners to speak in favor of it so it doesn't seem like all the ranchers are opposed.

So why are your acquaintances against it?

They think errant rounds will hit their place or cows. They think a gun range next door will decrease their land value. Though they complain about property taxes so I don't understand that. Basically they're just opposed to living next door to it. Which I don't blame them for that. And I still cherish them as friends. But I disagree with their asserting what someone else should or should not be able to do with their land. And I think a quality range is sorely needed.

I am no longer a land owner there. We just sold all the land in a cash deal.

Great lobbying effort there tell the committee you're going to build it with or without State funds... ok well then go build it yourself and don't ask us to waste taxpayer dollars for it then.

There is supposed to be a discussion at the meade County commission meeting tomorrow on the range. If you live in the county and can attend in support, please do. If you aren't a resident it wouldn't hurt to send a message to them in support.
