Sometimes even a good idea needs a little tweaking, and that’s the best way to describe improvements being made to the rifle range at the Lincoln County Shooting Complex.

When the Libby Rod & Gun Club, with the assistance of Lincoln County Road Department crews, added the new pistol range, workers also added earthen berms as backstops to the downrange rifle range target areas. Targets are at varying distances from 25 to 500 yards.

            I'm assuming the County is willing to settle with those who WILL be shot, not WHEN they will be shot at the shooting range for someone's stupidity for putting up sand piles behind each target making it difficult for people to be seen.

            If you think people are going to play by the rules and put a flag up or notice a flag in the air when someone is out in the field checking their target, I have a bridge to sell you.

            Get rid of the piles of sand!
