Complete the Southern Shooting Partnership (SSP) Listening Tour survey!
Are you a recreational sport shooter or live adjacent to or recreate on public lands upon which recreational shooting occurs. If so, complete the Southern Shooting Partnership Listening Tour survey. Tell your concerns or suggestions (ie., proposed shooting range locations or shooting range design). The survey is open through March 31, 2019.
Due to the complex urban interface, increasing populations and increase in recreational shooting there is a need for public land management agencies to work collaboratively to manage and provide safe and responsible Recreational Sport Shooting (RSS) across the Southern Front Range of Colorado. The Federal, State and County land management agencies from the Southern Front Range have agreed to partner and develop an RSS strategy.
The partners will prepare a recreational sport shooting strategy within a project management structure that includes a Southern Shooting Partnership Board with a Chair and Co-Chair to lead the development of the RSS strategy.
