First time visiting our ranges or new to shooting? Check out the Commission's Shooting Range Procedures and Safety video below.
The Commission’s shooting range program strives to implement best management practices that ensure exceptional environmental health and habitat conservation at our shooting ranges. Lead reclamation (or lead recovery) is one of best management practices that is implemented every six to eight years. Recovering lead on shooting ranges reduces the risk of ricochets, bullet fragmentation and lead mobilization in runoff. Once the bullets are removed from the berm soil using separation machinery, the lead is sent to a certified recycler to be smelted down and reused.
More than 15,000 pounds of lead was recovered and recycled from the Flintlock Shooting Range in Aug. 2019.
