Phase two includes the size of the pistol range doubling by adding a second shelter and four shooting lanes. Both phase projects costs between $20,000 to $25,000. They received $29,000 from two local organizations. (Sidney Shooting Park)

Phase two includes the size of the pistol range doubling by adding a second shelter and four shooting lanes.

Phase two will begin in March and be completed by the summer.

Phase one and two together costs between $20,000 to $25,000.

Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s Outdoor Funds provided a $20,000 grant and the Cheyenne County Visitors Committee provided a $9,000 grant totaling $29,000.

They hope to hold competitions, teach safety and etiquette and get the youth involved.

“It teaches the gun enthusiast how to be safe and how to accurately hone in on their skills,” said Brad Zalesky, President. “I mean there are so many things that are important to this town.”

The best way residents can help is by receiving a membership.

They are $50 per person for a year, $75 for family and $500 for lifetime.
