My family ownes the largest public shooting range in new england. It has been in operations since the 40's. For the first time in our history we had to shut down because one claims that bullets are traveling 1.5+ miles over a mountain and are striking acouple houses. The connecticut dep has asked us to shut down. We have. We spent money hiring a lawyer and flying specialist up from florida to hear one thing. This is one of the safest ranges I have ever seen. We are currantly spending money to build up the berm that bullets are fired into. Im not sure what else is being done. We have been praying that the state will let us reopen the range once we are finished making it as safe as we can. Its funny that we have gone threw this twice. The first time it was all one caliber that was found embeded in shingles. 11 rounds of a 7.62 where found in a swimming pool from 1.5+ miles away they where shot from. Funny no cars where hit just the pool. Yea Im buying that one not. Its funny the ring leader behind this has his own 200 yard range on the property. its total bs. WTNH.com, Connecticut News and Weather - Home has video clips and stuff. Thanks for letting me vent.
