    That is very good news.

    Redlands is all ready a great shooting park; with the curtains, it will be even better.

    Thanks, Terry, for knowing how to get the job done and being solutions oriented.

    Southern California shooters salute you and Jacque.

    Thanks for sticking with this, we need all the clubs to be successful and prosper. Once a club closes, we don't see any new ones starting up.

    This is awesome news Terry. San Diego shooters have already been confronted with this same issue and we rely on your range to satisfy our need to compete. Thanks for posting this update, and it will get passed around.

    Terry, I am very happy to hear that you are taking pro-active steps to work with the EPA and local agencies to keep the range open. I am glad that you are apparently learing from the mistakes of others and working to make Redlands THE first class shooting range in SoCal.

    Will the shot curtain start on top of the berm? I can only imagine how consistent that will make the background and also block any Northerly wind.

    Thanks again for your efforts.

    Best news I've heard in a long time. Redlands is my "home" club even though there are other ranges closer to my home in Covina. I travel about 90 miles round trip. Each and every one of us needs to support Terry and Jacque in this venture. I'm willing to donate towards their expenses. Bob English, long time Redlands shooter.

    Too bad it had to happen, several kudos for Terry and Jacque for taking on this project. The view of the San Bernardino Mtns. to the north on a clear day at Redlands is "to die for"...hope that view is not lost entirely...not been there in a long time due to mild elective shoulder repair, but hope to again soon. Dr. says I can!

    Thanks Redlands SP!

    Got to be the best solution to the problem.

    Looking forward to the improvements as it will only enhance an already best place to shoot.

    Looks like Terry will have a ready supply of lead to boot.

    Terry,

    I belong to Oakdale Sportsman's Club up here in Oakdale, CA.
    We have had a shot curtain here for years because of the possibility
    some shoot might fall in the Stanislaus River.
    I thought in the beginning it would hamper me, but just the
    opposite. The target really pops out against the background really well.
    Vermillion or purple work very well. Orange birds with black rim.
    Best of luck in your endeavor.
