AZ – TRAINING – Proposed Tucson-area shooting range could be much larger, more controversial than expected

The Tucson Rod and Gun Club’s proposed shooting range could be a complex of five facilities in one, providing space for rifle and pistol shooters, shotgun shooters, archers and practitioners of individual and group marksmanship. Proposed for Redington Pass, the range also would place a long list of auxiliary facilities in now-remote desert along Redington Pass Road. The range would lie about 4 miles northeast of where the pavement ends and about 11 miles northeast of Houghton Road. Included would be roads and trails, portable toilets, a water well, an outdoor education area, vault toilets that store waste underground, a portable generator, shade structures and solar-powered electric panels. An existing trail for off-highway vehicles would be rerouted away from the facility, as would a wash. A new “simulated hunt trail” would be added. The permit application was obtained by an environmentalist through the federal Freedom of Information Act. It’s a more intensive facility than what a gun club official outlined in a June interview about the range. The proposal is now triggering a heated debate among shooters, environmentalists and other conservationists. On a much smaller scale, it’s reminiscent of the decade-long debate between supporters and opponents of the proposed Rosemont Mine. The club’s detailed permit application touts this facility as a way to dramatically reduce “wildcat” target shooting that has been pervasive in the Redington Pass area for decades. “It’s kind of a one-stop shop, where I’m not running all over Southern Arizona, going from one environment area to another to shoot,” said Paul Rodriguez, manager of Second Amendment Sports, a gun store on the east side. “It will be better regulated and have more people to clean up the area. All facilities will be there.  [full article]
