    Used to owned and managed by the Village....not police.
    Oh well...maybe it aint such a bad thing.
    That place could use a little cleaning up and a Range Officer.

    I've been barrel swept too many times and have had
    heard snaps,pops,hisses and buzzes when checkin my targets on the Long Range.

    I only hit that place early mornings during the week. Tues Wed or Thurs...
    if theres more than 3 cars in the p/lot...I dont shoot.
    and am usually out of there by noon.

    The Village/Police in that little town it's the same thing. I am glad there are no Range officers there ! Range officers are nothing but BAD. Range officer ='s some guy or lady that thinks they are gods gift to safe shooting, no thanks. How would a range officer stop you or anyone from getting swept by someone else's muzzle ? some one points a gun at you , you walk over Tear the moron a new hole. There is no such thing as a perfect range , unless it's on your land, but this place is close.

    Range officer would kick someone that couldnt handle guns properly off the range.

    Every time I go there I wonder if thats gonna be the time I get shot.

    Sorry but that place is becoming as dangerous as deer huntin on Public land.

    ok, So you won't be there, that settles it. I am sure there is a snobbish, High priced Private range down there in SE wisc you can join that has range Nazi's so you can feel safe. Since you have made it clear that you don't like the Shiocton range & you will not be attending the get together shoot, I guess there is no need for you to reply to this thread any longer.

    Anyone that is so adamantly against a range officer or as you call "range nazi" in the interest of safety isnt anyone I would care to shoot with.

    I have filed 2 reports with the PD regarding incoming rounds on the big end of the 500 yd range. Their concern level appears to be low. It is not necessary to have a Range Nazi, but there should be better signage and target frames on the pistol range.
    Some of the crowd who use the pistol range are not sharp enough to place their targets near the berm, so they end up skipping rounds over it and straight at the rifle range toward the 500yd berm. This is no small berm. The berm is massive but the ground is covered in crushed stone and these rocket scientists place the targets just a few feet in front of themselves on the ground. They have absolutely no concept of placing every round into the berm.
    The rifle range is not much better, but there is alot of open space after the 500yd berm. The berms on the rifle range are simply target holders and not an effective backstop. The long range side is shut down after 3:00pm during bow season and the entire range is shut down during the 9 day gun season to reduce the chances of hunters getting shot.
    We reserve the rifle range for Appleseed shoots, but starting this year we will be shutting down the entire range including the pistol range for exclusive use during the weekend we are there. We get charged enough that we should not have to worry about dodging bullets.

    This is a pretty safe place to have a fun shoot even without a Range Officer. From my experience, everyone is watching out for each other and anyone who does something stupid gets a swift reminder. Usually it only takes a single reminder. If you see something at the range and do not confront the poor behavior you are just enabling it. If I am going to be placing targets at the 500 yd berm, I simply head over to the pistol range first and see what is going on. People seem to take the feedback well when I point out where there rounds are going.
    I encourage you to attend the shoot to meet people face to face. You may always feel free to leave if you see something which makes you uncomfortable.

    I for one appreciate the offer and the gesture of a get together. But I am just too far away to make it feasible for me to attend. Thanks anyway, and I hope you have great turnout!

    And as far as Range Officers. There are good and bad, depending how nit picking they want to be. But there are times when it's good to have someone nearby that has the authority to remove someone from the firing line, just for the good of the sport! Enough said on that.

    The Shiocton PD will respond if called. If someone refuses to take feedback, I am confident that they can be removed from the range...

    I'll have to skip it. Don't feel like driving that far to freeze my nuts off. I still have free range time to use up at the heated indoor range. No Nazi's either.
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.

    There are new range rules for Shiocton. Beginning immediately, no more ground shooting and only paper targets allowed are the ones which will get immediate notice. Leaving brass is considered littering and shooters can be cited for it. Beginning in March, the 200 yard berm is being moved back to 100 yds. There is no more shooting of clay pigeons on the rifle range and no more deliberate skipping of rounds off of the ground. All round must impact the berm. That means no putting targets at 25 or 50 yards on the 200 yard range as the berm is not high enough. Once it is moved back to 100 yards, it will be easier to have intermediate targets. There is already a 25 yard berm on the right and there will be a newly constructed/reconstructed with the work beginning in March. This also means that the 200 yd range will be closed from March until it is completed. The goal is less than 60 days. I have a complete copy of the new rules if anyone wants me to E-mail them a copy. Just Email or PM me with your address.
