    My best friend who visits Willow slough DNR outdoor range, said to me that some of the DNR officers (range guys) claimed that you have to have a LTCH now just to go to the range and shoot.

    I've never heard of such a law, code, rule. I checked the indiana codes again and I see no new legislation that would prohibit gun transfer/use at a range.

    Can anyone confirm or deny this claim and provide source so we can set these range officers straight?

    I was at Kingsbury a couple weeks ago and didnt run into that. We had several pistols along with the rifles, all in cases. None of us had a license to carry.

    It might be range policy. If so, that's messed up, and I would never go shoot there. If they think it's a law, then ask them to point it out, or call the sherrif's office and ask them on the phone over the speakerphone.

    I can confirm at willow slough the range guy asking about LTCH. He said it applied only to pistols however.

    I felt like pointing out to him that IN wildlife regulations EXEMPT persons on DNR land who are target shooting from having a LTCH or a license to target/hunt.

    While technically you NEED one to transport to and from the range, while actually at the range you are not required to have one (weird I know).

    Anyway, the guy is a real @$$ and not someone you can 'explain' things to. I didn't bother trying. On the plus side, they never ask to see it only if you have one. Myself and 5 other people all I personally know have gone thru the same thing.

    Perhaps someone should take a copy of the DNR regulations to them.

    When I was filling out the application for my LTCH, I remember for the question that asked what my reason was for wanting to carry a handgun, the two options were personal protection and hunting/target shooting. This issue may actually be worth looking into.
