NRA donates $75K for shooting ranges
The Sept. 24 board meeting of the SCDNR saw the NRA provide funding for three new shooting ranges in South Carolina. A 50-yard pistol range and a 100-yard rifle range will be built at both Belfast WMA and Woodbury WMA, while a skeet and trap range will be constructed at Marsh WMA. The $75K donation will be matched by Pittman-Robertson funds that are derived from federal excise taxes on firearms, ammunition and more.
