    One of the great things about this website is the wide diversity of opinions on virtually every subject under the sun. Even the most minute detail of trapshooting can invoke passionate disagreements. Well, I believe I have one thing we can all agree on. We don’t want another range to close!

    San Diego Shotgun Sports Association (known by many of you as Miramar Gun Club) has been working with the Marine Corps and our local congressmen, Duncan Hunter, Brian Bilbray and Darrell Issa, to re-open the club for over 18 months. Despite a congressional directive, from The House Committee on Armed Services, encouraging the Navy to complete their environmental studies and re-open the range without delay, things seem to have temporarily stalled.

    One thing the shooting community can do to help the situation is to write positive letters of encouragement and let them know we’re still here, we still care, and we want this range re-opened. Letters from the public really do have an impact, particularly in large numbers. If you can find the time to write, these are the people we want to encourage.

    Hey Augie, It's Charlie Gallaghwer here. I was just asking about you on another thread!!! I sure got a kick out of the way you promoted the "Big BURP GUN" showdown a couple years back. You are one of the very best AMBASSADORS the shooting sports have! I will certainly get letters off to the afformentioned officials. I have many fond memories of the Miramir gun club, including my first and last handicap championships spanning over 30 years. Hope all is WELL with you. Charlie Gallagher

    Hi Charlie. Thanks for the kind words. I just posted a letter sent by one of our members to Congressman Duncan Hunter. Great letter. I sure miss ATA events in San Diego.

    I've put the link to that letter above. If you want to go to our home page, go to the bottom of that page and use the Site Navigator to take you there or elsewhere in our web site.

    I should have asked you to let us know if you write letters to these folks. If you'd like us to post your letter because you believe it will help others compose one, send it to us.

    Thanks

    Please help us and write. I have followed this closely from the beginning, and your letters could be a tremendous benefit to the club, more now than ever. Mike

    We continue to need your help. Since I've seen very few posts confirming a letter sent to those key folks on the list on our website, we still need your HELP.
