That`s a right!.......Yikes.........I`m at the range yesterday and only after 8 rounds fired, a fire started in the brush above the dirt back stop behind the pistol targets. A ridge to my right seperates the rifle range (where I was) from the pistol range.
 
The fire grew in size as it raced up the hill away from all of us. A few minutes later, choppers in the air and fire units were all over the place. I stuck around to watch the water drops from the choppers!..............My shooting day ended early!Sad
 
NO! IT WASN`T MY BULLET THAT CAUSED THE FIRE!!!..................Flame%20Thrower

Well, you know what that means.  The Cali liberals will now insist that all gun ranges be closed down because of fire danger.  It'll be coming.

Tracers are banned from my range unless it's raining or the machinegun shoot. There is a fire fighting crew present for the mg shoots.
