    It's about time. I would definitely go there vs driving 30+ minutes to Niagara.

    Problem is - it's right next to a residential neighborhood...

    I hope the town approves though and this place proves to be a good neighbor.

    Tell four or five of your like minded friends. Come to the meeting and show support. (no yelling and screaming, politicians only understand two things, money and numbers)
    Then we can all go have some wings and beer at a near by gin mill.

    I will be there and will be bringing some friends too. This is about 800 yards from me. I know that folks in Depew village gov. are sick of driving out to the Alabama swamps to shoot.
    Any effort to rationalize the use of this revolver in a serious combative scenario is evidence of intellectual bankruptcy.

    Uhh? . Niagara gun range has an excellent indoor facility. 50 yard range, you can shoot rifles there. Hard to beat.

    Petrov, gotta disagree with that. Niagara IMO is an accident waiting to happen. Can't pay me to go there. Hopefully this place is a go, is safe, and is reasonably priced. I have no where other than the swamps at the moment I'll go to shoot my AR. Depending on membership prices I'd consider even joining. 16 lanes..hopefully it wouldn't be over crowded. Its exciting..hopefully it goes thorugh.

    Well that depends, Niagra range is like that because it is public, lots of idiots show up. I shudder to think of all the idiots coming down from broadway and genesee streets from Buffalo area. Oh when was the last time you were at Niagara gun range? They have a full time guy now monitoring the range.

    From what I've been reading here, sounds like some private "conservation clubs" have members who cannot obey the rules and also have their share of problems with negligent discharges and the such. I've been to several public ranges and I never felt as though my life is in danger.

    This new range will have cutting edge Bullet Backstops. Yes you can shoot rifle. State of the art ventilation (probably the most dangerous thing at a range is lead dust.) Range Shutdown system so if someone steps in front of the line during the Unsafe Range period, the range will shut down.
    Noise should not be an issue because it is indoors.
    The parking lot looks plenty large enough.
    Traffic shouldn't be an issue because the coming and going won't really be concentrated. (it would be spread out over the day)
    The only real opposition will come from the anti gun crowd based on ignorance and phobia or the people that will play the race card.
    I my self don't live in Depew, but I will be spending my money there if this goes through. I would be using near by gas stations, coffee shops, and restaurants in the area as and could be persuaded to use a gin mill or two if push came to shove.
    And I say to you forget the extremists. Itís simple; no one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs ten bullets to kill a deer. Cuomo 2013 Never forget this SOB! BEWARE of Trolls! They could be UC on der Gouverneur's State Police Gun Squad.

    This is Depew, there will be a riot at the town hall and a lynching is some one goes on an anti-gun spiel.

    Well you seem to know the lay of the land. What do you think the chances are of this passing the town board?
