Does anybody have any idea what they might try and impose???

It sounds to me like safety and management restrictions. They already have safety rules posted at Flintlock. Maybe it will have something to do enviormental safety? It could be more presence of range enforcement officers? Please let us know if you find out. I'm curious too.

I was wondering about that, in my game lands map it shows Flintlock Range being on game lands.

Rumored they may start charging a day use fee just like they do for the ATV trials.
