    I just stopped by there today to scope it out/see what it was like. It was closed and they had a gate up so I could not see what it was like. I have almost 5 acres of land that we shoot/hunt on but, I need a good flat range so I can really work with my iron sights on my M4.

    Status unknown

    The only information I have about the range is that the status of the range is in doubt right now. About a year ago, the property was up for sale, but was found to be so contaminated by lead from its use as a range, that no one wants to buy it. I think the local CAS club still uses it for their monthly matches. Other than for that, I don't know if the range is being used.

    Hmmm...

    Seems like a good opportunity for some one in that area to pick up a range and keep it from going away permanently

    Still in Use

    The local USPSA club (Competition Shooters of Statesville) hosts matches there on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Sign in at 11:00 A.M. with shooting beginning at 1:00 P.M. Next scheduled match is Jan. 20, 2008.

    They normally have 5 or 6 stages and some very interesting and challenging set-ups - including movers and turners.

    You can find out more by going to the USPSA website and select the "find local club" option and entering the appropriate zipcode.

    It is my understanding that the property has been sold but that the club will be allowed to use it "for a while".

    I have no idea how you can use the range when events are not scheduled. I would suspect you would need to contact the FOP - might get some help from someone in the Sheriff's office.
