    This sucks Colonel. Been to Scott many times although I never shot there. I can't believe how these idiots in office are just throwing our Country away one stupid move after another. Merry F'n Christmas Egyptians. That's alright, we will just starve our people while the Muslims who hate our guts get $250,000,000 bonus checks. What a president huh???

    You can see how he likes the peasants children, closes the White House tours so kids in grade school who make the class trip to DC can't see it.......Nothing but dirty politics on his and the Democratic partys.

    They recently closed the ranges at Randolph AFB here in San Antonio also. Fortunately, we do have a lot of options here. There are more anti-gun leaders in the military than you would think. Ron

    They were going to close Phantom at Luke AFB till Col. Pletcher made some noise. Turns out the new base commander was an anti gun female.

    It is obvious that a lot of people do not appreciate the fact that Obama needs a lot of money for his golf trips with Tiger woods and Michelle needs a lot of money to take all of her friends and family on extended European and Hawaian vcations. They also need a person who is paid over $100,000.00/year to take care of their one pet dog. Isn't government by elitist socialists wonderful?

    Halfmile hit the nail on the head. We had one of those anti-gun female base commanders at Millington, TN and she closed down the skeet and pistol range. Not only are many of the female officers anti-gun, they also tend to be Bulls. Up is down and down is up these days.

    ASIDE FROM ANTI GUN PEOPPLE THE WORD I GOT IN SAN ANTONIO THE REASON FOR CLOSING RANDOLPH AFB. THE RANGES WERE ORIGINALLY SET UP TO TEACH LEAD TO THOSE WHO OPERATED A GUN AND NOW THEY HAVE THE TECHNICS TO PUT AN X ON SOMETHING AND PRESS A BUTTON AND IT GOES TO THE X. HARRY

    I seriously doubt that theory. There was none of that aircrew training going on when I got my wings in '63. That was 50 years ago. Most of the shooting at Randolph was done by retired military and their civilian friends. Ron

    The company I work for is a general contractor/ construction management firm. We only bid on govenment/ military projects. We are privy to a few websites and auto-email sites that send out projects world-wide for military, VA, Homeland Security and National Park construction projects. These auto-emails come multiple times a day with dozens of projects coming up for bid.

    Just yesterday, a project popped up for an Air force base in Midwest,(not Scott). The project was for building a new athletic building with locker rooms, indoor pool and track and included a new, lighted softball field complete with dugouts and bleachers and a new concession stand. Job estimated at 5-7 million dollars.

    And they can't keep a skeet/trap range open on a base?
