    Also, recently in the news:
    Clark County Shooting Park Needs Your Support!
    Please Contact the BLM Today!

    The Clark County Shooting Park is a 3,000 acre park outside of Las Vegas that is devoted entirely to the shooting sports. It was created by an Act of Congress that transferred land to Clark County from the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Not long after the transfer, some local residents filed a lawsuit to close down the shooting park. The federal judge dismissed their charges, but ordered the BLM to complete some environmental studies.

    An Environmental Assessment with a "Finding of No Significant Impact" (FONSI) has been completed and is open for public comment until Wednesday, September 2. The same people who sued the shooting park, along with their allies, plan to bury BLM with letters demanding a more extensive environmental analysis as another form of harassment against the shooting park.

    Since comments are not limited to Nevada residents, we are asking that NRA members from around the country send comments to BLM in order to counter comments by the shooting park's opposition. A large number of supportive letters will also positively influence BLM decisions on other shooting areas and ranges nationwide.

    If you shoot recreationally, it is important the BLM hear from you. Gun control advocates and radical environmental activists are trying to shut down shooting ranges or keep them from opening across the country, so it is important that BLM hear from you. Please take a few minutes to send Mr. Bob Ross, BLM Las Vegas Field Manager, your comments supporting the Environmental Assessment and recommending that the FONSI be approved and that the environmental review process be completed. His address is: 4701 North Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130. The environmental assessment is available online at http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/lvfo.html.
    It has been a long road, but I think the shooting park will finally come to fruition. It deserves our support.

    The most recent press release

    http://www.accessclarkcounty.com/dep...ingSystem.aspx

    The release is about the new lighting system but it also says the park is expected to open in December (they neglected to mention whether that was December 2009 or 2010).

    And normal business hours are 7a-7p Wed-Sun.

    Cool, can't wait!!

    [size=Clark County Opens Doors to New Shooting Park]
    Shooting Park Will Be Open on Weekends Initially
    [size=]
    The Clark County Shooting Park will officially open its doors Saturday to Southern Nevada’s first public shooting park, a facility designed to increase public safety.

    “The shooting park has been a long time coming,” said Commissioner Tom Collins, in whose district the park is located.“I am excited that sports enthusiasts and shooters will finally have a safe place to practice.”

    The shooting park will operate for the next three weeks on weekends only and transition over to full-time hours when the park officially opens in mid-January. Collins will fire the opening shots at 8 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 19 at the Shotgun Firing Range, Field 1. Temporary hours of operation will be as follows:
    • Dec. 19 and 20,8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    • Dec. 26 and 27, 8a.m. to 4 p.m.
    • Jan. 2and 3, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    The park is located at 11357 N. Decatur Blvd., about five miles north of the 215 Beltway. Rifle rentals and ammunition are not yet available and it is recommended that park users bring their own firearms, ammunition and hearing and eye protection before coming.

    The facility features the following venues:
    • Combination trap and skeet fields;
    • An archery range;
    • A public rifle and pistol center where targets will be sold; and
    • A shotgun center with 80 recreational vehicles spaces for shooter.
    The opening Saturday represents the first phase of the 178-acre, $61 million public shooting facility, paid for by money made available by the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act. The site is located
    on 2,900 acres of land. When fully built out, the park is expected to draw competitive shooters from around the world and provide training facilities to law enforcement officials.

    The land for the shooting park was transferred to the county from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in November 2002. Since that time, more than 265,000 new firearms have been registered in Clark County, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. The growth in firearms underscores the need for residents to have a safe, affordable place to shoot.

    [size= ]“This project comes at the request of a lot of citizens who wanted a saferplace for shooters,” Commission Chairman Rory Reid said. “This public facilitywill do a lot toend indiscriminate desert shooting and give tourists a new reasonto come to this valley andbolster the local economy.”

    Senators Harry Reid and John Ensign, along with Congresswoman Shelley Berkley and Governor Jim Gibbons, then a Congressional representative, sponsored the act that provided the land.

    Congresswoman Dina Titus, who was elected last year, lent her support to the shooting park saying, “The opening of the Clark County Shooting Park represents the tireless efforts of many in our community over a number of years.As the only public shooting park in Southern Nevada and a source of great pride, it will offer ample space for training and recreational activities for gun owners and enthusiasts from beginners to sportsmen and everyone in between.”

    The county hired Don Turner, then manager of Arizona’s successful Ben Avery Shooting Facility, in 2003 to start the planning process for the park. Turner is now the county’s Shooting Park manager. More information about the park is available on its Web pages at http://www.accessclarkcounty.com/parks.
