Reckless & Dangerous Issue at the Range

During the annual range clean-up activities at the range on Saturday, May 18th, a reckless & dangerous issue was uncovered at the range. Two of our NO Trespassing signs mounted on our fence line HAVE BEEN SHOT FROM INSIDE THE RANGE, and it was determined that they were definitely shot intentionally, and in the general direction of the new houses (southeast of the range). The projectiles glanced off of the signs and did not puncture either.

Of course this is a serious safety issue, not to mention a member or their guests treating the range with the utmost disrespect. This behavior cannot be tolerated, and if the perpetrator(s) is found, their membership will be revoked and criminal referrals could be made to the Sheriff’s office.

We ask that anyone with definitive proof of who has committed these acts to contact the SSSC via our club president Grant Lewinski [Tel: 719-371-6236 Email:] under the protection of complete anonymity.

Remember…this is YOUR RANGE. This kind of reckless behavior could result in us losing our range or, much worse, result in injury or death to an innocent resident.
