Zak Failla of The Shoshone News Press has an article about the Silver Valley Friends of NRA committee helping a local shooting range expand to accommodate more shooters.

Friends of the NRA Foundation Donates to Shooting Range

As shooters continue to flood in from outside the Silver Valley, the need for the Shoshone County Public Shooting Range to expand and continue growing has become more important.

Courtesy of a $12,000 grant from the Silver Valley Friends of the NRA Foundation, the public range will be able to offset “the construction cost for electric power, and to enclose the shooting range building.”

Larry Jennings, the secretary and treasurer of the range said that the new enclosure will allow other groups to more actively use the range and will start to maximize its current potential.

“This is going to be a great meeting place, and nice to have the enclosed gun range. It will be available for any outdoor activity organizations. It won't be anything fancy, not amenities, but it will be a nice clean meeting room,” he said. “We're run solely on donations, and it's just due to the support of the NRA that we can go forward with these improvements.”
