New Public Shooting Range Opens in Arkansas

Arkansas Game and Fish CommissionWith so many of our shooting ranges facing lawsuits to shut them down and many just struggling to survive financially, it’s always nice to see when a new range actually opens its doors.  That was the case in Arkansas, earlier this month, when Arkansas shooters got a new range near Batesville.

According to the Log Cabin Democrat, “The Independence County Firing Range near Pfeiffer will be known as the Paul H. ‘Rocky’ Willmuth Sport Shooting Complex. The complex was named after Willmuth, who was instrumental in securing funds to build the facility at 3600 North St. Louis St., a few miles north of Batesville.

“The facility is a three-field combination skeet/trap range with a static archery range,” the Democrat noted.  “The complex is fully supervised and open to the public. It will be the site of Arkansas Youth Shooting Sports Program events, as well as club trap and skeet competitions.”

The shooting complex was developed through a cooperative agreement between by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Independence County, Arkansas, and the City of Batesville, at a cost of about $203,000.
