Default Pachaug State Forest Gun Range

The New State Police gun range is moving forward in Pachaug State Forest

Currently it would cut off a road that is part of the loop. I think miles of trails etc for bikes, horses, and hiking would be cut off

Please write your state legislator that they should not build it there or minimally provide a road around the facility to replace the road they are building over.


PS It is a stupid location as it is NOT convenient for ANY state police being basically in Rhode Island. A better solution is to keep current range as the rifle range and build a weather proof pistol range in the center of the state

In a meeting they admitted that the rifle range was a minor use

The vast use was pistol and pistol recertification

The current old range is next to the Farmington River andyes it does flood occasionally but
that would be easily worked around as the rifle only range

I will suggest that they do need another pistol range but the proposals are excessively opulent and expense and expansive. We are bankrupt big shots
