Fairfield County Fish and Game is semi open. Lots of restrictions and almost no clays.

It really depends on the board members, and ours are being extremely conservative it seems.

My range is open though, we never closed. Tues-Sun, 10-5

I was there Sunday, Would prefer to shoot outdoors in the nice weather. Is there a reason the target carriers only go to 67 +/- 1 foot on your 25 yard range? Any why no shotguns - the rubber backstop causing pellet riccochet?

I don't agree with it but it is indoor and with an older membership I can see why they made the choice to close.

Exactly, I understand why they did it. I just hope we can get back to some sense of normalcy soon enough.

Thanks for the offer six shot, a bit too far for me though.

To answer both, there are a few morons in the world that ruin stuff for the rest of us. There was simply too much damage being caused by (stupid) people spray and praying, hitting the carriers, and blowing out lights, cables, and tracks. This is compounded at the end of the track where the splash would then rebound off the armor plates back down into the cables.

Makes sense, and this is why we cannot have nice things.

That's unfortunate, you'd think since its outdoors they could just have every other lane open and that would give enough distance between shooters.

Lamont allowed protestors to shut down the highway and violate social distancing laws. But god forbid you want to get a haircut. Does Wooster allow you to shoot ‘others’?

From what I have seen - yes.
