This may sound a little unusual but I was wondering if anyone knew who to contact or what kind of regulations there might be for opening new skeet and trap ranges. I love the sport but could use a little help on getting started. Thanks!

There are HUGE problems with lead and lead remediation associated with opening new shooting ranges now.

I think it'd probably be easier to open a nerve gas demilitarization plant than a shooting range these days. But you may not be too late...I think it might still be possible to find a Pueblo city councilman or two still willing to permit the poisoning of their constituents in order to claim a kickback and 15 new jobs for Brown Town. Josseppie should have their phone numbers.

Growth, after all, IS above all things, the holy grail.

Hey Bob...thanks! I think the reclamation has been figured out. I would excavate down far enough that I could use a liner that would prevent any poisoning of the ground or ground water. Maybe a little expensive but would be worth it eventually.
So back to the original question.....anyone have anything that is helpful instead of negative? Thanks again!

If you haven't seen this, then your should read it in it's entirety. Then have an attorney that specializes in environmental law to explain your potential legal exposure under RCRA etc.

EPA: Best Management Practices for Lead at Outdoor Shooting Ranges (http://www.nysrpa.org/files/epa_bmp.pdf - broken link)

And if you're going to have employees, a call to the Colorado Dept of Public Health and Environment's Occupational Health Surveillance Program is a good idea, too. (303) 692-2964
