    With all the lunatics on the internet, I'd rather not be found. But it's no big deal. I just added my general location. I live in the country out in the parish so I can shoot on my own property. About 12 years ago (a few years before Sept 11, 2001 happened) the town had a gun range by the little airport. They shut it down because they were going to extend the runway and they were afraid planes would get shot at. It was run by the city and had an old deputy out there running the place. Then they shut it down. That affected everybody. Lot of people in town who like to shoot and hunt who miss the range. The city police and parish sheriff's dept all have to drive 30 miles away to the next parish to qualify and practice. I think there is a market for a range in Bastrop.

    just got a lot of good information e mailed to me by the NRA. ordered a book on the subject, got a list of to-dos. (their conferences for this sort of thing are kind of far. One's in Virginia, one's in California. A bit far for me.

    we had a few problems with members at my place and did not want to go by the rules so now they have everyone signing a waiver when u join? We had one guy that was a member putting up nude pictures of women to shoot at the president got a hold of him told him he could not do that he said he was a member could do anything he wanted ect? Also the range i belong to u can go and shoot by yourself most of the ranges in Ct. have a rule two people must be present to shoot?

    I was thinking more of having customers come and pay to shoot instead of a shooting club. And rules (both safety and decent behavior) will be observed and enforced. This is going to be a place for families to come and shoot 8 hours a day. Range officer/manager will be present at all times to enforce.
