Designing Your Outdoor Shooting Range

Editor's Note: As articles about irresponsible rural gun owners allowing rounds to escape from home-made ranges featuring poorly-constructed backstops continue to make headlines, Buckeye Firearms Association is dedicated to continue efforts to educate gun owners on the importance of range responsibility.

Following are links to recommended resources to ensure that "if it's shot here, it stays here."

Ohio Administrative Code 1501:31-29-03 Shooting ranges

Outdoor Shooting Ranges: Best Practices (Minnesota ODNR)

Design Criteria for Shooting Ranges (National Shooting Sports Foundation)

The National Rifle Association offers a number of helpful resources, including, but not limited to:

2012 NRA RANGE SOURCE BOOK ON CD-ROM

2012 NRA RANGE SOURCE BOOK

NRA Range Development & Operations Course

There are ongoing efforts to push legislation that would allow Ohio townships to regulate the discharge of firearms. Don't be the guy that provides more fuel to the gun control fire.

If you shoot on your property, take responsibility to set up a proper range.
