    The club has a lease in hand and the Marines don't care. They have padlocked the place.

    What is a Best Management Practice and How Does It Apply to Shooting Ranges?

    Best Management Practices for Lead at Outdoor Shooting Ranges

    http://www.epa.gov/region2/waste/leadshot/

    Richard K. “Dick” Peddicord, Ph. D. has been providing environmental services to the shooting sports since 1986 when he began work for Remington Arms Company at Lordship Gun Club at Lordship Point, Stratford, Connecticut. Since then, he has become one of the most broadly experienced leaders in the world in environmental evaluation and management at outdoor shooting ranges.

    The marines have NOT locked anything. Our hours have not changed.

    This should be a lesson to every gun club no matter who owns the property. You need a lead abatement plan done to EPA specifications and filed with the appropriate agencies. This plan will tell you where your lead is going as well as lay out clean up procedures. Why this club did not have one is unknown but the two clubs I belong to have them and they do the reclaimination projects that recovers the lead. This is a money maker for the clubs. One of my clubs received $40K+ the last time they did a project. Its stupid not to do this.

    So they've closed... but wait.... the hours have changed.... but wait....the Marines are using dozers on the property.

    So... what's the real story here?

    Are the Marines simply doing lead recovery? They'd need a soil sifter to reclaim the lead. A dozer won't cut it.

    Both sides seem to be speaking half truths. While the range has not been padlocked -- all shooting ceased over two years ago. The Sec. of the Navy says there will be no more shooting at Miramar. The folks at SDSSA have fought the good fight; however, they lost. That is according to the base commander. The range is open, for the time being, for people to hang out and chat -- no shooting.

    Someone posted a news clip of the commander justifying the closure. Do a web search on "San Diego shotgun divorce" and you will learn more than you will on this thread.

    HAVE A LOT OF GREAT MEMORIES SHOOTING AT MIRAMAR IN THE PAST PRIOR TO MOVING TO LAS VEGAS.SORRY IT IS CLOSED. SEEMS LIKE MORE AND MORE CLUBS ARE CLOSING IN THE SOUTH WEST. WE LOST THE LAS VEGAS GUN CLUB TO THE NEW COUNTY FACILITY, WHICH IS A CLASS RANGE, BUT RUN BY THE COUNTY. NO REGESTERED SHOOTS DUE TO THE MANY RQUIREMENTS SUCH AS INSURANCE ETC.JUST PRACTICE AT $6.00 PER ROUND.STILL A PLACE TO SHOOT. CHIP IS RIGHT ABOUT RUMORS. HAVE TO GO TO THE SOURCE.

    Thank you Mr. Kuhlman for setting the record straight. It seems that Bucko wants to jump on every rumor as if they are facts and then perpetuate them

    Clyde,

    Did you, or did you not watch the video that was attached???

    I would not call that a rumor. It was published on the website of a local news agency.

    Maybe you shouldn't be so quick to point our other people's issues until you look at your own.

    Maybe it is just the Tucson AZ is a little less costly to live in/visit,

    but the rumor I have heard is that a select group of shooters will winter here.

    They seem to be coming here from SD

    The club will pay the 20 million dollar clean up fee? What are the dues at that club?

    Well SD could mean So Da, or the subject area of San Diego,

    But a whole bunch of us desert dwellers are looking, forwards to seeing the US Olympic team crushing clay right here!

    At MY favorite place to play! TTSC!

    The card players aren't bad either
