Once upon a time target shooting was allowed 365 days of the year.
Then the gates to the back area were closed at certain times of the year, but the shooting was always open in the area with the toilet.
Then they started closing the gates to the area with the toilet from 4/15 to 10/15, but you could walk into any BLM area and shooting
Then they added to this no shooting in the afternoon in the summer.
Then shut down shooting completely from 4/15 to some date uncertain.
They do this when the USFS Study PROVES that shooting is safe with the right ammo!!! BLM wastes Tax Payer dollars and is not managing this resource properly until this Study is acknowledged and used to manage this resource instead of their discretion.
