Thanks to Al Phillips and the crew at Dola Brothers we now have a new road to the handgun range. The old road has been closed off, and all traffic will now come in through the main gate. Please use this road only for getting from range to range, and not for parking. It’s taken alot of work to get this done, please give your thanks to Al next time you see him!
