For 20 years, the Clark County Shooting Park has been on the books. Originally, the land was 6 miles away from any housing. Recently, during the "land boom" here, developers bought up land by the hundred acre and constructed housing tracts. So, due to urban sprawl, fueled by unprecedented growth, homes have drawn to within a couple of miles of the proposed shooting park. It seems that now, as construction continues, those homeowners in the area are suddenly concerned about the "noisy gun nuts" shooting near their homes. Some homeowners have even complained of the excessive gun noise, even though the shooting park is STILL under construction and no gun owners have been able to use the park. There IS a skeet range even closer to these homes but NONE of these homeowners even knew that. A couple of the local newspaper stories: IN THE OUTDOORS: Study: Shooting park no nuisance - Sports - ReviewJournal.com Study: Noise at gun park falls within accepted threshold - News - ReviewJournal.com Well, as of 12 May, the court battles are over. The shooting park will be open, as scheduled, in August. Even though August and September are the hottest months in Las Vegas, I'll still be taking my AK-47, AR-15 and Mosin-Nagant out there to run rounds downrange. AND, if I get off my butt and order the Dragunov (actually the PSL Romanian PSL-54C 7.62x54R Rifle at aimsurplus.com), I'll be taking THAT one out there, too.
