Last week the state Game Commission concluded the first stage of a $250,000 shooting range project with the opening of a new public handgun range on State Game Land 203 near Wexford Pa.
The project was financed by Pennsylvania hunter dollars from the agency's Game Fund and a $50,000 contribution from the National Rife Association.
Phase 2 of the project, the reconstruction of the game land's existing rifle range, is scheduled to get under way next year.
As per a 2001 regulation change, those who use Game Commission shooting ranges must be in possession of a valid hunting or furtaking license or a range use permit, which costs $30.
To access the new range from the I-79 Wexford exit, travel east on Route 910, turn left onto Mingo Road, drive 0.8 miles and turn left onto State Game Land Road. The shooting range's parking lot is one mile ahead on the right.
